Ladies Golf Results – Tuesday 10th December 2019

A misty morning greeted the 55 ladies playing in the 9-hole Ambrose event today. The ladies were playing the back 9 with a 9am shotgun start and many different challenges to deal with. Apparently many struggled trying to hit their tee shot with a blind fold on and putting without using a putter! Also teeing off with a left handed driver for a right handed player or vice versa seemed to create some laughs. It was entertaining watching players putting on the 18th green where Christmas decorations were strategically placed to make putting more challenging. Thanks to Barbara Bright for providing the decorations again this year. The most popular hole was obviously the 12th where there was a Baileys on offer for those who chose to endulge. Most ladies seemed to enjoy the game, some didn’t but all definitely loved the delicious lunch provided by Heather & Shane Johnson who did an amazing job to cater for the 70 people who attended. Presentation of the 2019 trophies followed with the list of winners attached as well as some photos of the day and the Ambrose event results: Ladies Events Results for 2019 Presentation Day LF

Thanks also go to Gerri Robson for organising the gift envelopes for everyone, Kim Reynolds for taking photos on the day, Jean Harle for producing the gift cards & our reliable Tuesday bar staff John Sargent & Neil Fredricson. David Mair did a great job of producing a slideshow of photos from 2019 events for us as well, thanks David.

On behalf of Safety Beach ladies Linda Fredricson presented a cheque for $2,000 to Veronica Whittaker from Clothes 4U being the funds raised from the Gala Day held in November. Veronica was thrilled to accept the cheque & gave an update on the work the Clothes 4U team are doing to help those women, girls, men & boys on the Peninsula who are homeless and/or disadvantaged. Veronica said that the money donated would help as many as 31 individuals.
Merry Christmas, keep safe and we look forward to seeing you in 2020. Good golfing All.
