Last Saturday, we were pleased to welcome Newquay Ladies for a friendly Fourball Betterball match. Each team fielded 5 pairs on what turned out to be a chilly overcast afternoon. The match was closely fought and very enjoyable with Newquay taking the honours overall winning 3-2.

Gill Rickard Trophy
On 20th September Merlin Ladies competed in teams of 3 in a Texas Scramble for the Gill Rickard Trophy. Gill, who was a keen golfer at Merlin, sadly died of cancer eight years ago. The event provides a wonderful opportunity for the Gill’s golfing friends to come together and remember her on the course and over a glass of red wine in the club house. The trophy was won this year by Liz Hannaford, Dawn Dennis and Jackie Buckingham with net 71.3. Coming second and third were Eileen Avery, Eileen Phipps and Jean Goddard with 71.6 and Sue Semley, Tre Dick and Ann Craze with 79.4.
Lady Captain’s Day
On Sunday 27th September Liz Hannaford hosted Lady Captain’s Day. The day was wonderfully warm and sunny and 11 ladies enjoyed a stableford competition. The quality of play was challenged by delicious and much welcome Pimms and canapés on the 12th hole. Liz Hannaford presented prizes to the winner Jackie Buckingham who scored 36 points and Dawn Dennis who was a close runner up with 35 points. Fiona Hutchings and Tre Dick were also awarded prizes for most points for first 9 and second 9 holes, respectively. Many thanks to Liz for such a wonderful day !
