THE TEAM of Sally Smith, Terri Hawes and Pat Elliott were victorious at The Vale Golf Club’s Lady Captain’s Day event.

The competition over 16 holes – many of which were over water – presented exciting challenges for the ladies.

The three-ball Texas Scramble was keenly contested and a glass of Pimm’s at the halfway stage gave extra zest to the competition.

A meal followed in the Sir William Lyons Suite and the prizes were presented to the winners, who totalled 58 points.

Other prize-winners were runners-up Lyn Robinson, Di Morris and Margaret Perryman with 60.5 points and third placed Pat Martin, Mary Collier and Sandra Cornwell with 61.6 points.

Longest drive silver went to Smith and longest drive bronze was Trish Hulburd.

Nearest the pin silver honours went to Fee Mitchell and the bronze accolade was taken by Mary Parsloe.

There will be a week of celebration at the end of July which will end with a Founders Day competition and gala evening on July 31.

Owners past and present, captains and past captains including Fiona Mitchell and John McGowan, the first lady and club captain respectively, will join friends and families for an evening of reflection, fun, laughter and a look to the future.
