Gloucestershire Senior Ladies' Golfing Society GSLGS
Open to everyone over 50 who has played for Gloucestershire County in either the 1st or 2nd team and is not playing First Team County in 2019 in the case of the South West inter counties 3 day event in October.
Other matches are open to any lady over 50 who is keen to play scratch foursomes.
The programme of events/results for 2019 are as follows;
1. Match vs. County Senior Men - at Cirencester Golf Club on Friday 31st May 2019
"A reversal of fortunes this year as we agreed to have a change of format and play a 4bbb stableford match play game. The weather was kind to us, albeit a bit overcast and slightly muggy, and it wasn’t until we were consoling ourselves with an after match drink that the sun finally came out. Nevertheless it was a very enjoyable match played in good sprits with a lot of keen banter. Bizarrely it was their ‘slightly ineligible’ ringer in Tim Clink partnered with Malcolm Lewis that gave us our only victory!
Next year we hope to have this fixture a bit earlier in the season so that it gives us a good pre-season warm-up rather than being in the middle of the year when it tends to clash with other fixtures. It remains to be seen whether we keep the same format though!
My thanks go to all the players for putting up a good fight and to Cirencester Golf Club for being such good hosts and allowing us courtesy of the course which was in fine condition and a credit to the greens team. I can certainly recommend the profiteroles!"
