~ Last week the Tuesday Ladies traditionally celebrated their Christmas Trophy Stableford, and, as in recent years, the challenge was a 2 club selection as well as the compulsory putter. It didn’t seem to deter winner, Amanda Roberts, leaving her bag of eleven clubs at home. Choosing a Rescue Wood and a 9 iron, Amanda’s winning scorecard of 37 points, with scores on 17 of the holes. The total comprised an outward score of 15 points and then, in true style, a homeward tally of 22 points, to include two gross birdies. Notably that birdie 3 on the 17th hole for a 4 point conversion turned it around. Playing partner, Sue Chambers, who had had a better score as they turned at the 10th hole, saw Amanda finish the stronger. 3 points back, Sue was a creditable 2nd. Amanda last won this event in 2013. Last year’s winner, 30 handicap Linda Whittaker, came in 3rd on 33 points, with a creditable 17 scores, and the best front 9 card of the Ladies’ field, scored over 8 holes. A splendid result also for both Norma Shelley as 4th prize winner, and 36 handicap Eileen Plummer, in 5th spot. Other leading scores were returned by Joan Alton, Sue Hutton, Karren Dearlove, Angela Mumby and Thea Law. As ever, the ladies generously played in charitable spirit, not only providing for the event’s Hidden Santa presentation of the top 4 prizes, but also donating their entry fees to the club’s nominated charity Marie Curie Cancer.
It’s been a good news week for the Ladies' RESULTS OF AM-AM STABLEFORD
News of our ladies' section of the club, finding success with two summer scorecards which had been forwarded earlier to England Golf for qualification in National and Regional finals. It has been worth waiting for this deadline date for last returns.
Sue Chambers and Linda Whittaker, who play off 23 and 30 respectively, recorded 45 stableford points in June at home, off 90% handicap allowance. A very welcome email has notified them of their place in the ultimate event of the Ping Women’s Fourball Betterball, The Plate Final, which is scheduled at local Gainsborough Golf Club in the first week of September. Over one thousand golf clubs have competed in the pre-qualifying home stage of this generously sponsored club golfers’ event, and this invitation is a prestigious one, with a fabulous day of golf and hospitality promised by American sponsors Ping Golf Equipment.
Amanda Roberts and Chris Thompson have proceeded this week to the North Midland Regional Final in the Australian Spoons Foursome Stableford. The venue is Whetstone Golf Club, Cosby, Leicestershire where representatives from the 5 counties of Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire, contest one place only to go to the England Final in September. Amanda plays off 15 and Chris off 20, and came through the home club rounds run on 5 separate dates during the period of March to July.
The club is very proud of this Ladies' double-double achievement.
The Ladies of Kirton Holme Golf Club, Boston, visited this week, as a celebration of another shared milestone of Lincolnshire family golf. Sudbrook Moor has a 30th birthday this summer, and Kirton Holme will be 25. The ladies have been meeting annually for 20 of those years. The two clubs came together to share a combined club Texas Scramble Medal, with drawn teams of 3, with a balance of handicap categories. Beautiful sunshine further warmed the event, and much relaxed fun was the order of the day. Prizes were presented at a colourful Match Tea in the Marquee, which was still suitably decked with all the national red, white and blue decor of the Royal June Celebrations of Elizabeth II's 90th birthday. All the competitors, irrespective of scores, were presented with prizes as a keep-sake of their double anniversary.

It is thought to be over 10 years since the Ladies were victorious in their annual social matchplay against the Senior Gents. A more recent halved match in 2014 had lifted the Ladiies' expectations and supported the idea of more regular Tuesday Ladies' pairs competitions during the ensuing off-seasons.. The well practiced ladies of 2016 were now ready for action. The early matches at 8.30am had a dry start, but, very soon, the forecast persistent heavy rain set in for the day. There was no dampening of enthusiasm or hope and lots of fun was enjoyed by every match. A very treasured piece of history was made with a triumph for the Ladies, 4 - 3.
In the lead match, Senior Captain, Graham Mackinder and Bryan Greenslade met Amanda Roberts and Joan Doughty, with the gents just ahead at the turn, but finishing on the 17th green with the ladies securing a 2 and 1 win. Harry Cutmore and Colin Henfrey brought home a win of 7 and 5 against Sheila Cutmore and Anne Parker. In the Tony Rose and Roy Nelson encounter, the gents were 1 Up at the turn after 4 halved holes, and surged to 3 Up with 4 holes to play. However, Diane Leslie and Thea Law used their strokes well, to take the last 4 holes and a very exciting Ladies' win of 1 Up. Bryan Heydinger, Dave Leslie, Doreen Fardell and Maureen Bradford had an equally challenging 18 holes. The gents were 2 Up at the turn, but all square after 11, and all square again after 14. Play off the 18th tee was the deciding hole. The gents went on to secure a win, with the final putt resulting in a 2 Up result. Mick Massingham and Trevor Whatton met Rosemary Haw and Gladys Reynolds and the Ladies took a very commendable win of 1 Up, as did Fiona Hutton and Shirley Lane-Gilhespy against John Chatburn and John Came. The ladies were now 4 - 2 up, with the final drenched 4-some battling it out to the 17th green, for the gents, Joe Green and Tony Hall, to take a win of 3 and 1 over Jan Machin and Eileen Plummer. A momentous 4 - 3 Ladies' victory.
In a non-counting tie, which was put together to include unequal numbers, Karren Dearlove, Chalky White, Harry Addison and Francis Haw enjoyed a most convivial halved match result.
