News from Lady Captain
No photo this week and no Competition either, what a grey wet day on Tuesday, it’s not an easy decision to cancel our Tuesday Competitions, which is why, after I had seen the forecast on Monday, I decided on 9 holes, however, it appeared to be getting worse overnight and into the morning, hence the last-minute cancellation. I realise some of you don’t open emails every day, but it is a good way of communicating information quickly. The only other option would be to have a ‘WhatsApp’ Golf Group, I’m happy to set this up on my phone, perhaps you could let me know if this would be a better way of letting you all know quicker? Well done to Ladies who ventured out for a few holes in the drizzle.
Thank you to those ladies who replied to my questionnaire with comments and ideas for the future, I welcome your replies.
Congratulations and best wishes to Barbara on her special birthday and engagement, we also send good wishes to Gilly who is also celebrating a special birthday this week. We are also thinking of Julia who will not be able to play golf for a while due to a foot injury and we wish Anita well for her knee operation next week.
Daily Mail Foursomes
Commiserations to Kath and Lorna, they had a very good close match against Play Golf, Colchester but unfortunately lost on the 19th hole. Thank you for representing the Clacton Ladies Section.
