Ladies Captain’s Report August 2023

The Ladies enjoyed their trip to the Sheppie Festival of Golf on the 24th and 25th of July. The camaraderie among the Ladies was wonderful, and much free entertainment, fun, and golf were enjoyed by all. Well done to Michelle, who won “closest to the line” with a brilliant drive, and Daryl and Carmen, who placed 5th on Day 1.

Thank you to Anthony Barnard and Kutana Capital for their sponsorship of the Captain’s Fire Friday. A great day was followed by delicious curries served that evening, thanks to everyone involved. Much banter between the players, of course, led to the launch of Captains vs. Captains Day, a challenge that is sure to see Anthony’s hair sprayed pink! Details to follow!

Gowrie Ladies hosted the Graham Brown Trophy on behalf of Midlands Ladies Golf on the 9th of August. Our President, Bev Stewart, was most appreciative of the efforts of the Gowrie Staff and Ladies. Congratulations to Gary and Pat van Eyk and Brian and Abby Leitch for winning the trophy with a score of 40 points. Thank you to Jeanne from Just Cheese and Georgie from Piggly Wiggly for their generous sponsorship of the hamper, which was raffled on the day.

League was played at Bosch Hoek Golf Club this month against Bosch Hoek B Team. It was a challenging day, but the Gowrie flag flew high. Thank you to Wilna, our League Captain, for your support.

Thank you to Phil for the free Ladies’ golf clinics, and to Joani and Ever for the coffee, scones, and pancakes. The Ladies so enjoyed it. Please be sure to RSVP to Phil. The 8:30-9:30 slot will be for lady members with a handicap, and the 9:30-10:30 slot will be for non-handicap lady members and all guests. This is now a monthly fixture on our calendar, with upcoming dates as follows:

Our comp this month was sponsored by Midlands Signs and Canvas, Just Cheese, and Betasan. The Ladies played at Mooi River Country Club and had a wonderful day out. The winners for the day were Jeanne Anderson and Les Trollip with 45 points. Well done to Claire Robertson for her Birdie 2 club!
