Welcome back ladies to the 2016 golfing year which, owing to ‘lousy’ weather our opening day began a week later with much enthusiasm by all our members who played on the day.
It was good to be at Presentation again, and warmly welcomed by President Jan & Mon Capitan Wendy, and suitably oiled with champagne and chocolates dispensed by Donna.
As always, the first order of business at the beginning of year is the presentation of the Summer Cup, generously sponsored by Edwards Butchers. Our winner this year (by a country mile) is Gwen Gray – congrats Gwen on your great play. The prizes were presented by Jo Edwards.
There are also a couple of milestones this year – we all congratulate Jan Binstead for her 40 year membership of Everglades, and to Lois Elworthy who is now an octogenarian… great going Lois.
If you have put your name down for Pennants this year now is the time to either bone up or refresh yourself on the art and the rules of match play. There are plenty of members who have pennants experience and would be happy to help.
Slightly different this year, in putting your name on the sheet for a medal round. Please fill out across (not down) the line in your division.
All those who qualified for the Singles Knockout – enjoy your game and play well.
It may seem a little early in mentioning our Open/Invitation Day (April 12), but it would be great to have many visitors, so get a team organised in plenty of time.
Enjoy your golf and have fun.
