Turkey Trot 6th December 2020
We had a wonderful turnout, we sold some gift bags with golf balls and tees, all proceeds went to my charity ‘The UK Sepsis Trust’ , on the day with these sales and donations the ladies donated £101 to my charity, which I am overwhelmed by.
In total from last years Turkey Trot up to this event, I have collected £344.30 in donations which is amazing.
We also decided that instead of buying gifts for the Secret Santa this year, we would make a donation towards the Corby Food Bank and again the ladies have been so generous and we have collected £135.00 for this.
I think everyone had a good day, big congratulations to the winners
Onward and upwards to 2021.
As we reach the end of the 2020 season, what can I say ‘What a year!’
We have had some very low lows and also some very high highs, we have said goodbye to Chris our current club champion and past captain and we have also welcomed some wonderful new members.
During lockdown we all missed our golf and the comradery that we have in our ladies section, but we have supported each other and come out of it stronger and I think appreciating each other that little bit more.
Thank you for your support in this challenging year, you have all embraced the changes and I have learnt so much. I love you all x
Here are some of the photos from the ‘fun competitions’ we have had this year. Enjoy !
All the best for the new season

Valentine Competition 15 / 22 February 2020
Unfortunately the Valentines Competition in its normal format was cancelled due to the arrival of Storm Denis,but we managed to come up with an alternative.
A big thank you to those that attended our indoor get together, with target practice and nearest the PIN competitions, which proved to me most enjoyable.
An even bigger thank you for donations of £55 collected for The UK Sepsis Trust.
Looking forward to better weather for our St Patrick’s Competition next month.
Rabbie Burns Competiton 25 January 2020
Thank you to those that entered the competition, I am sorry I could not join you this time, but hopefully I will be playing again soon. Congratulations to the winning team of Jean, Julie, Maria and Cath, it was very close between all groups and also to Rose for winning nearest the PIN. A big thank you also to Rose and Jean for entertaining us with your wonderful poems. Hope to you see you all soon.
Poem from Rose – our own “Rabbie Burns”
Jimmy couldnae play cos his wife was in a strop.
She stood still like a volcano and then she blew her top.
Words came pouring out and flowed like lava down a crater.
Jimmy stood and took it : he knew she’d calm down later.
Meanwhile at the course it was a cold but sunny day
So Angus decided that he wiz goin’ tae play.
He’d go out there to play like he’d never played before
And make Jimmy proud with his amazingly good score.
On the first tee Angus stood ready to hit the ba’ so sweetly.
Muscles rippling he powerfully swung but…missed the ba’ completely.
“Ocks that was just a practise”, he was heard to say
And the next shot was good so he wis on his way.
After another practise shot he landed on the green
He picked the ba’ up, cleaned it but forgot where it had been.
So Angus placed it near the hole: He knew it hadn’t been far
Then with a majestic putting stroke Angus got his par.
The game progressed and soon Angus reached hole 9
He was thrilled to see his score was awfae, awfae fine.
True sometimes bunkers or rough got in his way
But kind winter rules surely deemed them out of play.
On the 18th hole Angus admitted he found the going hard
But one over par was not too bad, he wrote it on his card
Just 2 over par for the round! Angus bristled with pride.
He felt a glow of happiness begin to spread inside inside.
But by now his legs were feeling rather heavy
Time for a fish supper and maybe even a bevy.
If Jimmy’s wife had now eventually calmed down
Maybe they could even get a night out on the town.
Angus knew Jimmy would be so pleased to hear
How Angus had got the best round of the year.
How although he’d played alone that day
He had been a champion all the way.
Christmas Competition 7 December 2019
Message from Ladies Captain Kaye
Good to get the new season started. The weather has been pretty wet of late, the course has stood up very well. Although the ground was very wet, we made the most of our Texas scramble.
My charity this year is the Sepsis Trust, it exists to fight this life-threatening condition, stop preventable deaths and support those affected by sepsis. I hope that with your support we can do our best to help what I am sure you will agree is a very worthwhile cause.
It was so nice to see everyone in the seasonal spirit with their lovely Christmas inspired outfits, thank you for making it special.
The winners on the day were Team 4, Janet, Cath, Sue and JulieS – congratulations and well done. The hamper raffled for my charity was won by Alison. Thanks again for your support, we raised £74.
Thanks to everyone who took part. It was an excellent day and I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas lunch.
