SPRING BOWMAKER 2022: Minchinhampton – The Avening

90 ladies arrived at Minchinhampton on a beautiful day to take part in the Spring Bowmaker, which had been postponed from April 2020.  It was great to see everyone back together and to see faces we had not seen since 2019.

The event ran very smoothly and as it was a Stableford competition and everyone was very good at picking up if they couldn’t score, the speed of play was excellent.  There was a worry that the last people going out 3 hours 45 minutes after the starters might have been out for a long time, but no, we were all in within 4 hours to enjoy some very good food.

An excellent day at a great course.

Results:-

1st – Jenny Garland, Sue Flower & Jenny Fishers – The Kendleshire

2nd on countback  - Mary Brealey, Pat Waring, Cheryl Harper-Coles – Cotswold Edge

3rd on countback – Sue Trewin, Deanne Haynes, Christine Dooley – Brickhampton

Nearest the Pin on 6th – Christine Taylor  - Bristol & Clifton

Thank you to all the ladies who contributed to the Red Cross collection for Ukraine, we raised £310.00

Next year’s Spring Bowmaker is on Wednesday, 12 April at Cirencester Golf Club.

glcgs committee away day 2022

7 April 2022, Burghill Valley Golf Club, Hereford

13 Past Committee members gathered at Burghill Valley Golf Club for an away day with a forecast that did not bode well.  Perhaps the fact that the old Severn Crossing was closed should have been enough to keep us all safely indoors!

However, in true GLCGS style, we headed out to play.  It was certainly windy, but that did mean that the heavy rain showers passed through quickly, although it also added to the speed of the hail stones hitting us at one point.  We were all glad to get back to the warmth of the club house and an excellent meal.

We received a very warm welcome from the Club Owner and all the staff and enjoyed a very sociable time once we had warmed up.

The competition was an individual stableford and was won by our current Vice Captain, Val Bland, by quite a margin.  She had the advantage over the rest of us that her daughter is a member there and she has played the course several times, but it was a great achievement in the howling gale.

NEW CAPTAINS DAY 2022

On arrival at the Brickhampton Golf complex we found the course closed due to thick fog.  Thankfully after unpacking trolleys and golf clubs the mist cleared ready for our first event of the 2022 season.

We received a very warm welcome and excellent service from the Brickhampton staff.   After our delicious bacon butties we made our way on to the Glevum course which was in great condition following a warm dry spell of weather. 

Six groups of ladies set off for our 4 player Bowmaker which held 6 committee members and 18 current and past captains from 2020/2021.   The scores were extremely close and the competition was won by Pat Spencer (GLCGS Secretary) Bunty Purbrick (Chipping Sodbury) Lizzie Claridge (Brickhampton) and Rachel Hill (Kendleshire).  Overall best individual score on the day went to Bunty Purbrick (Chipping Sodbury).

It was lovely to meet the new Captains and enjoy a day of friendly golf and lively discussion. Several of the new captains commented on how good it was to meet other new captains to share ideas and to realise that many issues applied to most new captains and not just them.

The committee wish all the new Gloucestershire lady captains a successful and enjoyable year.
