SOUTH WEST VETERAN LADIES GOLF  -  Spring Field Day - Thursday 4th April at Yeovil Golf Club

Devon Ladies Golf Association arranged the  South West Seniors Stableford held at Yeovil GC on April 4th. A field of 110 ladies took part, travelling from various parts of the South West, including Cornwall, Devon and Dorset, some staying in local accommodation the night before. The weather couldn't have been worse, wind and continuous heavy rain as the ladies struggled around the course. The green staff had kept the course open but only just. 6 temporary greens, two shortened holes and all bunkers out of play. 44  ladies from Somerset  took part, Somerset  ladies always support the County events. We had four ladies in the prizes, well done to them on such a difficult day for golf. There was only 1 two scored on the day, Marilyn Kirby from Bath GC lady she went away with 5.1/2 dozen golf balls.


We have clearly been  spoilt with the previous weeks of

beautiful Spring weather. We hope it returns soon.  

Well done ladies for sticking it out.

Somerset Triumph at Trevose



Despite national storms our first Shield match of the season played at Trevose Golf Club against Cornwall on the 10th June was played in warm sunshine and a moderate breeze. I was pleased to greet all our players who arrived in good time for their match, many had stayed locally overnight, others setting off early from Burnham and Saltford Golf Clubs.


We were lucky to have 5 ladies from links courses and two who knew Trevose GC really well. The course was superb, having been prepared for next week’s England Senior Men’s Championships. We had a number of players new to Seniors Ladies match play but they did us proud, I walked the course with Cornwall’s Captain and proudly watched our team as they played through the first 9 holes. What great golf and at the turn we were up in 6 games and all square in one match.


Our bronze players, especially those from Burnham and Minehead displayed a brilliant links golf ability. This really influenced their playing partners, leading us to a wonderful win 4-3 away. We halved two games, lost one on the last hole and one on the 17th but won the last three games coming in. Our last match pair Sandra Ford, Long Sutton GC and Judy Schroeder, Burnham had no idea it all hinged on them.


The whole day was played in a tremendous spirit. The match meal was enjoyed by all.


A massive thank you to the commitment of our team.

The drive home was dreadful constant heavy rain but it didn’t matter then.
