THE Ladies' Captain's Day saw a good entry of 44 turn out to support Lee Warren's special day. Lee greeted everyone on the first tee, hoping that they would enjoy the relaxed format of American greensomes and gave all players very generous gifts to mark the day, writes Chris White.

The weather was kind, with no threat of rain and was not too humid, with the course in good condition, all adding to an enjoyable occasion. Apart from the three main prizes, Lee also provided prizes for nearest the pin on both the fourth and 12th holes. Julie Lye was nearest the pin on the 12th with Jean Rapersby-Ford nearest the pin on the fourth.

Overall winners were Maureen Howard and Shirley Lewis with 40 points; Ann Willoughby and Anne Blackler were second with 39 points and Sheila Tallon and Elizabeth Rodwell claimed third place with 38 points.

Lee thanked everyone for their support and vice-captain Ann Willoughby presented Lee with a magnificent floral display made by Sheila Skittrall on behalf of the Ladies' Section.

Looking back at last year's date for the Morritt Medal the competition was abandoned due to inclement weather. This year the competition was completed by seven 'mad ones' in Margot Beauchamp's words! Twelve players actually started the round on Wednesday, when, although fairly breezy, there was just a light drizzle but the conditions soon deteriorated. Those ladies who had decided to have coffee in the clubhouse hoping for an improvement in the weather, watched as the wind increased and drove the by then heavy rain in swirls around the course. There were no s and CSS went up to 72.

Margaret Deuce won the putting competition with 30 putts and she was also the Division 1 winner and runner-up for the Morritt Medal with nett 77. Pauline Dibley came in with nett 74, winning the Morritt Medal and Division 2.

Congratulations to everyone who had the courage to go out.
