SOMERSET LADIES PAST CAPTAINS
We had an excellent match at a course in very good condition and a set of very pleasant and friendly ladies. Many of the matches went to the finish or nearly so but Somerset met with real success winning. Well done, team!
The results: Somerset won 31/2 to a 1/2
Match 1 Ros Gait and Claire Biggs winning 4 and 3
Match 2 Sandra Ford and Sandra Basford winning 2up
Match 3 Gill Edwards and Pauline Cornish won the last hole to win 1 up
Match 4 Gwen Cavill and Linda Anniss halved
There was lovely fish and chips as one of the choices for our meal and there was lots of laughter. The journey home for those not staying the night in Cornwall was what our Cornish friends called “A Cornish Evening” and so very easy and pleasant.
SOMERSET V DORSET
at Wheathill Golf Club
Monday 29th April 2019
The result: Somerset lost 5/3
The weather was very kind for a day of matches played in tremendous spirit. The Dorset ladies were a real pleasure to play with and the level of noise and laughter after the matches was amazing! Of special note was the catering at Wheathill - we had a truly delicious meal beautifully cooked and presented and the catering staff were so efficient and pleasant.

SOMERSET V GWENT
at Bryn Meadows Golf Club
20 June 2019
The result: Somerset lost 51/2 to 21/2
The distance to travel was reasonable. The friendly staff welcomed us warmly on arrival. Overall the food was good; some dietary issues on the day which were dealt with well by Bryn Meadows.
An amazing “Ascot Day party” was in full swing – lovely dresses to see. Difficult to hear each other talk at the beginning but gave us all great entertainment watching the ladies concerned – we were under-dressed for sure.
Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.
SOMERSET V DEVON
at Enmore Park Golf Club
17 June 2019
The result: Somerset won 41/2 to 31/2
Enmore Park did a great job. There were compliments galore on the quality and pleasure of playing the course from both sides.
The catering was superb. Bacon baps were overflowing with bacon and the vegetarian and gluten free orders were equally delicious. The meal afterwards was absolutely delicious, with a choice of 5 vegetables. It certainly has set a very high standard. The chocolate tart or lemon posset were divine! Well done to Warren and his team. The young lady sorting out all the orders was so helpful.
I shall be sending a congratulatory email to the Office to pass on to all the staff on and off the course.
Plus the icing on the cake we won!!!
