Eight members of the CLC Golf Society visited Sherborne Golf Club at the end of March for their annual match against the SOG's (Sherborne Old Girls). The weather was not kind to start and there were a few mutterings about the drizzle that greeted us on the first tee. But golfing ladies are made of sterner stuff and off we went to play our match.

The format was four ball better ball match play and each team member from both sides said how much they had enjoyed the day – not only the golf but the friendly welcome we received from the Sherborne girls. And what is more the sun came out to lift our spirits and dry us out as well! The result was an honourable draw – 1½ to 1½. As this is my final year of being the Captain of the CLC Golf Society, I was a very happy lady. Playing for CLC were team members Meredith Christopher and Liz Macdonald, Sue James and Caroline Dixon, Pippa Lyons and Lorraine Morgan and Angela Heysham and myself. It was the suggestion of Meredith that it was only right that we should play Sherborne at their golf club and it was a very good idea. The day ended with an excellent meal in the golf club and we look forward to our match again next year – maybe to be played on a course near Cheltenham?

It was very good to be able to welcome our two new members Sue and Caroline who played for the CLC team and was delighted to hear how much they enjoyed their day. So please, if there are any CLC golfers who have not joined our small society yet, then please do get in touch.

Our next outing will be The Tassie to be played at The Berkshire in June. The format of this competition has had to be changed as unfortunately there has not been as many entries as before. Still we have two teams entered and as our results at The Tassie have been good in the past, we are hoping they will be just as good this year.
