What a fantastic day the ladies had on Wednesday!! Ladies came over from Chesfield Downs, one of our sister clubs, to play our version of The Solheim Cup. The weather held out for us, windy but nothing the girls couldn’t manage. The golf bar, reception and Flight Suite were decorated to perfection, by some of our very talented ladies!!! We had a delicious Halfway Hut provided by more of our gifted ladies, and once everyone was in we were served a delicious Tapas meal. The only draw back to the day was that, being 15 girls battling out on the course, and not starting until well after 12, the last few groups were quite held up, next time two tee start!!!! However , this did not deter from the day and The Essex, representing Europe, had a resounding win, 7-2. Amazing , The Essex Ladies are well deserved winners!!! Here are a few pictures from our day, unfortunately I was not quick enough to get a photo of our Club Champion, Sue Ballard, who also had a resounding victory!!
