North Staffs and District Ladies Alliance
At the NS&D Ladies Alliance AGM on Monday 11 November the results of the 2019 competitions were announced and prizes awarded.
Well done to two Leek ladies – Hazel McCrady and Sheila Hollins. Hazel McCrady was top of Div 2 (40 points) in the Captain’s Day competition at Wolstanton narrowly missing the top prize (Captain’s Trophy) on countback. Sheila Hollins was runner up for the Coronation Trophy with 64 points again narrowly missing out on the top prize by one point! This trophy is awarded for the best scores in the individual stableford competitions (Leek and Market Drayton).
Lady Captain’s Farewell - Tuesday 15 October
Unfortunately the weather was a little unkind in the run up to this competition which meant it was a 12 rather than 18 hole competition. However 28 ladies took part and enjoyed an excellent meal afterwards.
The ladies played for a trophy donated by Jayne Baxter to help raise funds for the Lady Captain’s charity (Air Ambulance)and prizes courtesy of the Lady Captain.
The overall winner was Marion Lilley with 23 points, 2nd Jo Peacock with 22 points and 3rd Jenny Cordon with 21 points on countback. The two nearest the pin prizes were won by Jo Peacock (11th) and Jayne Baxter (13th).
Winners of the winter league, team competitions and medals and stableford competitions were also presented with their prizes.
Trophies and end of year awards will be presented after the Christmas meal on Tuesday 3rd December.
Lady Captain's Away Day - Sandbach Golf Club - 15th August 2019
Leek ladies enjoyed a dry day out at Sandbach Golf Club which had held up well against difficult weather conditions in the preceding days. Nick Wittich and Ralph Harrison acted as starters, handing out wine and bags of chocolates courtesy of the Lady Captain.
I don’t think anyone would disagree that this 9 hole course is a challenge so well done to the ladies who won a prize.
Gill Damjanovic was the overall winner with 36 points. Well done Gill. Jenny Cordon was second with 34 points on countback from Pip Nadin in third place.
The very generous Lady Captain also gave prizes for the best front 9 (Janet Hardern with 19 points) and best back 9 (Jenny Flower again with 19). Nearest the pin was won by Jenny Flower on the 11th. The nearest the pin prize on the 2nd hole was unclaimed as everyone missed the green.
Sandbach Golf Club was very welcoming and the ladies and guests enjoyed an excellent meal after the golf.
President's Day for Ladies - Sunday 11th August 2019
Although it didn’t look too promising the weather on Sunday was not too bad. Inevitably the course played long and there was no run on the ball. The top scores were very tight with only one point separating the 7 prize winners!
1st Georgie Taylor 33 points
2nd Wendy Thornhill 33 points
3rd Jayne Baxter 32 points
1st Wendy Geston 32 points
2nd Pam Glaves 32 points
3rd Pip Nadin 32 points
Nearest the pin on the 4th and 9th was won by Nel Boulton.
The overall winner was also Nel Boulton with 33 points winning on countback. Nel is the 2019 winner of Lady Captain’s trophy, Mr Captain’s Prize and now Mr President’s Prize. What a year it has been. Well done Nel.
The ladies and guests enjoyed an excellent meal and thanked the President and his wife Ann for their generosity including the lovely refreshments at the half way house. The Lady Captain presented a bouquet of flowers to Ann on behalf of the ladies’ section.
