2013 Ladies Pennant 5th May


Cheltenham Ladies vs Box Hill, played at Huntingdale Golf Club

 

On Sunday the 5 May the ladies travelled to Huntingdale to play a semi-final for our chance to beat the ladies of Box Hill,  playing at  Huntingdale is an opportunity not to be missed, as golfers you are challenged at every hole, slick and undulating putting greens, bunkers either very deep or softly shallow and fairways that make the ball roll.

Ladder and results.

Today’s team and caddies, Sue Stroud & Robyn ?, Viv Cal & Bev Steeden, Pam Jowett & Jan C, Glenda Hendriks & Lyn W, Janet Tyler & Marlene S, Noela Simpson & Fay H and Elizabeth Bellarts & Jan Boulton (missing Julie Bond).

All the games were played under friendly sportsmanship but unfortunately we as a collective, caddies, players and our loyal spectators were unable To ‘bring home the bacon” (that Tony B so fondly refers too).  

The Box Hill ladies who had dropped down from Division 4 were determined to win and lucky for them having a large group of strong players to choose from, they also were able to play two teenage girls who have the golf smarts about them to go on and only get better.

With that said, we will continue to stay in Division 5 for 2014 but are hopeful with a few of the newer girls who have joined Chelt this year for them to participate in pennant in 2014.

Thanks Noela for managing the team and all that went with the organisation,  Marlene for supplying the excellent lollies especially the liquorice all sorts, Ken and Helen Day who popped up at every game, and also yesterday to supporters  Irene Marsh, Joan Taylor, Anne Kazaroski, Di Rushbrook, Neil,  Nan McArthur it is always great to see familiar faces.  Thankyou Graham Hendriks for also walking the course with the team, whilst the conditions were calm it was also quite chilly.

Good luck to the Mens’  team for the final and congratulations for your very solid and outstanding achievements over the pennant series.

Hopefully Cheltenham and her 9 holes will be widely acclaimed and this in turn will be  attractive to the novice women golfer but also especially younger girls to come down and enjoy all that we have to offer.”
