CLC Golf Society 2019



This annual fixture was held this year on 6th March 2019 at Lorraine Morgan’s home club of South Winchester, a reasonably accessible location for all the players who had travelled from far and wide to take part. Although the weather forecast was not reassuring, 4 optimistic pairs of ladies from each team set off under grey skies and in blustery conditions to play a 4 Ball Better Ball competition over 18 holes. Unfortunately by the time the last group had set off, the weather began to deteriorate rapidly and by the 9th the wind had become gale force with driving rain to add to our woes. It was therefore decided to play just 9 holes as everyone was soaked through and chilling rapidly! Fortunately the clubhouse was dry and warm and all the players were able to enjoy a very sociable time over lunch re-kindling old friendships and making new ones. 

The match result over the 9 holes played was Sherborne 2.5 to CLC 1.5. CLC Golf Society was represented by Mary Henderson, Sue Wood, Pippa Lyons, Claire Clench, Sarah Nannestad, Meredith Christopher, Sue James, Caroline Dixon and Lorraine Morgan. It is hoped that some if not all players will return to complete their round in rather more favourable weather conditions!

Our Autumn Meeting took place on 22nd October 2018. Ten of us enjoyed a remarkably sunny round of golf and lunch afterwards at Sunningdale Heath Golf Club.

We are looking forward to meeting up for our Spring Meeting at South Winchester Golf Club on 6th March 2019. We shall hold our annual match against Sherborne Girls School Golf Society on this occasion.

Finally, we shall also be entering at least one team of four into the independent girls’ schools competition, The Tassie, at The Berkshire on Monday 10th June 2019.

Going forward, we are very keen to encourage new members, particularly anyone younger than me!  Please do not hesitate to get in touch – players at all levels are most welcome.
