Ladies Past Captain's Trophy Competition - Tuesday 27th June 2023
The Past Captains’ Trophy Competition went well on the day. I introduced the evening by welcoming and thanking all the Past Captains attending and read the apologies from those who could not attend.
Chris Birch kindly said the grace. I refrained from telling too many bad jokes but couldn’t resist one or two. Everyone enjoyed the meal.
There was plenty of good-hearted banter around the table and later we discussed the decline in Ladies membership and possible ways to move forward. All those dining have a wealth of experience and ideas. It was good to hear everyone’s thoughts and opinions.
The highlight of the evening had to be the prize presentation. I was delighted to present the prize of a sleeve of balls to Jennie Flower who had come in with a fabulous score of nett 63. Jennie will receive the Trophy on the presentation evening.
All the Past Captains present wanted me to convey their best wishes to ALL Leek Golf Clubs Lady Past Captains.

Lady Captain’s Fashion Show
The Fashion Show recently held by Lady Captain was a great success. An enjoyable night was had by all the ladies. It was nice to welcome so many visitors to the club.
The event was supported by approximately 80 ladies. The majority of the models were volunteers from Leek Golf Club. Very glamorous and professional they were too. The total raised on the evening for Dougie Mac was a healthy £583.
I would like to thank the models and all the ladies who helped on the evening also a big thank you to all who attended.
Your support is very much appreciated. I could not do it without you.
