Open Day

 Open Day

 How blessed are we?
What a glorious day for our Open Day... a bit breezy but blue skies and sunshine... 

In retrospect I think the format was a bit tough and something a little more forgiving might be better next time!

However 36 Ladies came and played today, with visitors from Looe, Mullion, West Cornwall and Truro.
Mark and his team had the course looking absolutely fabulous - many thanks as always, but special thanks for the extra help getting the Nearest the Pins etc set up.

Thanks too to Cyril who was a super starter and to Brian and Ray for spotting, firstly on the fourth and then on the 12th..

Caption please!

Pam did three absolutely glorious flower arrangements... thank you Pam they were beautiful!

It was also lovely to see Judy - thanks for signing everyone in!
Thank you everyone for taking part today, for providing a fabulous raffle table and for all your encouragement.

Our Best Visitors were from West Cornwall, with Anne Uren, Mandy Denison and Chris J. with a score of 67.

The Best Front 9 team was Lindsay, Liz and Di with 32 points; the Best Back 9 were Anne J, Jenny and Sonia (how lovely to welcome Sonia back for the day).

Bev, Fi and Pam were in third place with a score of 69; Sue D, Jane and Fran were second with 73 and our Overall Winners were Sue S, Lyn and Chris L!
They had a fabulous score of 75 - a great achievement off 90%!
Well played!

For the Spot prizes we had Sandy King from Looe winning the Longest Drive on the 2nd; Lis Jenkin from West Cornwall won the Straightes Drive and Liz Nicholls was nearest the pin in two on the 17th for the Bronze Division.

Our Winners! Well played!

Thanks everyone!

Final Match

Match v St Austell

I am delighted to say that our Cape Ladies won the final match away at St Austell which means we should be top of the Division!

Well played everyone who has taken part in any of the matches... we have been a very effective team this year!

Next year we should be moving into division 3, we aren't certain who the other teams will be but Polzeath and Porthpean should be two of the them.

There is due to be a Division Winners Play Off final on Sunday October 15th at Merlin.
The winner of each division is invited to play; there will be semi finals in the morning with the winners playing a final in the afternoon.

We will await confirmation from the County but I am thrilled with how we've done - BRILLIANT - thank you all for your support!

Well done Cape Ladies!

Match v Polzeath

Well done Cape Ladies! 

Cape won their penultimate League match, playing Polzeath at Home. This is the match that we had to abandon because of the fog... today was absolutely glorious to make up for it.

Our team were Sue, Claire, Lyn, Jane, Lindsay, Ros, and Di and we ran out winners 5 points to two!

Many thanks to Mark and the team - the course is looking fabulous, and particularly to John for preparing the green for us.

Well played ladies - a great result... our final match is tomorrow!

Catch up again!

Catch up!

Last Saturday was supposed to be a medal but with gales forecast we decided to call it off.

In fact the wind was gale force but the rain didn't come so it wasn't as awful as we envisaged but I think most folk were glad of the decision.

During the week it was the Bronze Autumn meeting at Merlin and I am thrilled to say that Fran was third (on countback; 2nd to 5th all had 35 points!) and in 6th place was Liz with 33.
Fantastic result ladies! 
Well done.

On Thursday we played the Back 9 and it was bright and breezy! With a shower!

Our winner was Chris J and our runner up was Sarah.
It was lovely to be out - despite the shower.

Sue insisted on taking the pic below... just so you know that I play golf too!
You'll notice there is no tee,ball or glove... it was all posed!

Finally... an update about this young man...

they have reached Italy and all is going well.
They are over two-thirds of the way through now and Phil has so far raised about £17,000!
He is absolutely thrilled.

Saturday is the Carmen Payne Stableford and Sunday our rescheduled match against Polzeath followed on Monday by our final League match, away at St Austell! 
Good luck!

Playing on to the 12th

Eighteen lovely ladies came to play today - a great turn out when so many are away.

Sue and Lindsay doing a Ben Hur Challenge!

The format was a betterball and there was some really good scoring.

The course was looking great - many thanks again to John who was busy cutting the greens early on and all the team. The course is looking fabulous.

Cape had a Big Wedding on so after we'd played we went to Bronwen's for refreshments and the prizes.

Many thanks to Bronwen for hosting us at such short notice and Lynne for arranging a wonderful spread for us and lovely prizes.

In third place with 41 points were Sue S and Liz! 

Just in front of them with 42 points were Sarah and Val!

And ...

the winners of the Bob Lynne Trophy were Fi and Pam with 43 points!

Well played ladies!
Trophy Winners Fi and Pam
It was a really lovely day - time spent in good company while playing golf at Cape... it can't get much better than that.

It was lovely to have Rosemary pop in and to have Jean playing her first 18 holes for a while and of course to have Anne with us.

Thanks to everyone for their part in making today go so well; particularly Lynne and Bronwen for their generous prizes and hosting; also Di for her behind the scenes work in preparation and the scoring; and of course to Mark and his team for the continued work on the course.

Match v Polzeath

I'm sorry to report that the Match v Polzeath was a bit of a flop - I had tried to get hold of their Lady Captain to discuss contingency plans if the forecast remained so bad but sadly I was not persistent enough. (I've learnt from it)

 Not having heard back from them I worked on the basis that they were prepared to take the risk... the Polzeath team were with us early and we tried to get out on the tee early but were not very successful in accomplishing this either!

So the ladies began in awful conditions... horizontal rain and a strong wind and after about 10 holes the first out were also facing fog... the fog horn was blown and in the end we had to call the match off ... it was a real shame that we couldn't get it completed.

We'll try agin though... we've rescheduled for Sunday Sept 17th..

Huge thanks and admiration to all the ladies who played... I owe you one!
