Tuesday 16th October was my farewell and also the last ladies competition of the summer.
I promised myself NO TEARS!!
The ladies took to the course for what is traditionally a stableford format. The weather was damp but no rain.
The club house was transformed to a far away place in Italy, yes Mamma’s kitchen was in full swing with the smell of fresh garlic and pasta. Even the tables were decked with check table cloths, washing hanging on the line and was it really Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma? Yes Italy had come to Leek Golf Club.
53 ladies sat down to a taste of Italy thanks to our very own chef Adam "aka GINO" Hudson. Even the bar and catering staff embraced the theme and were dressed as gondoliers . The meal and service was a credit to you all. Thank you.
The presentation of the Winter League, medals and team competitions concluded the night.

I think I can say we had a lovely night and you gave me a fabulous send off with flowers kind words and an unexpected collection of £131.00 for my charities and £69.00 made on the silent auction.
A massive thank you to you all for your continuous support. (I could not have done it without you). Special thanks to Lisa Davies, Karen Wilshaw Deb Barnett and Lady Vice Captain Janet Wood.
Enjoy your winter golfing. Lynne
