The weekend of the men’s open saw The Lady President, Sheree Thompson and 12 other lady members travel to Wales and play the stunning Rolls of Monmouth.
Prior to weekend, a few stopped off to play Ross on Wye as a warm up. After an excellent lunch, everyone put £2 in the pot and The Lady President managed to walk off with the winnings – which oddly enough landed up behind the bar a few moments later! The course was in excellent condition and both the proshop and bar staff made us feel welcome.
After a good evening, Sunday morning saw a cloudless sky and temperatures almost up to 20 degrees! After saying goodbye to two ladies and welcoming another five at The Rolls, the serious competition began – but not before the ladies presented Sheree with her new commemorative pink driver (which she used on the first!)
On such a glorious day, refreshments were well needed at the half way house set up by Jayne Hutchings. Gin and Tonics were handed out to all to help them with the challenge of the hilly back nine!
After an excellent day’s golf, all retired to the cottage for food and a couple of drinks!!!!!
Monday dawned with a few sore heads and a grey sky. But undeterred the ladies set off for their last 18 following a hearty breakfast in the clubhouse. Day 1 saw Nicky Edwards win with Tracy Hampton as runner-up. The following day, Justine Craig beat Tracy into second place again. The overall winner for the two days was Nicky Edwards.
The Lady President and her ladies wish to say a big thank you to everyone at both Ross on Wye and The Rolls of Monmouth for making their weekend such an enjoyable experience.
