We had a double header this week; playing Malone away on Monday and at home on Wednesday . Although most of our pairs were there or thereabouts after the front nine at Malone we all faded thereafter and ended with a 6-0 defeat. However ,come the new dawn at home on Wednesday, we turned the tables and defeated Malone 4 ½ – 1 ½ . The men of the match were Edwin & Jack who saw off their opponents with a blitz of gross birdies. Grahame & Roy declined to be interviewed about their result but bunkers appear to have been a major issue! We have a week off next week with time to regroup before facing Donaghadee away on Wednesday 1 August.


Time sheet now available for the Mark Evans Trophy Semi-Open on Frday 10th August. Please support this competition.


Last chance to book for the Open sponsored by Active Health Solutions on Monday 23rd July. Please support it if you are not already doing so. The Kathleen Pyper Trophy played on Tuesday 17th was won by Christine Davidson with an excellent score of 40 points. Liz Jackson was runner up with 38 points on a better back nine from Wendy Elliott. The nine hole competition was won by Denise Williamson with 19 points. Jo Farrell won the putting with 36 strokes. Congratulations to all the winners. Next week’s competition will be an 18 hole Stableford competition and the cut off time for entries has been extended to Monday 7pm because of the Open. The Summer Friendly Team played at Carnalea on Wednesday 18th July and repeated their home 3-2 win resulting in an overall victory against Carnalea. Well done everyone. The Business Ladies had an enjoyable match against Knock at home on the same day but unfortunately lost. To-night the Ladies’ Committee play Council in the annual Frank Edgar fixture. Not quite so exclusive perhaps now we have ladies on Council but the Lady Captain will definitely be playing for and supporting the Ladies Committee. Lady President Jane Allen, Liz Jackson and Jean Wood who represented Helen’s Bay in the Peggy Nelson final at Dunmurry on Monday 16th July returned a very respectable team score and enjoyed their day out.
On Tuesday 24th Irene Aston and Jean Wood represent us at the Australian Spoons Final at Tandragee. Have a good time ladies and look out for ‘Brandy’s Home’ hole. Brandy was a stray red brown terrier who lived at the Club in the late 60s and early 70s, chased cars, barked madly and frequently enjoyed the left overs from the Wilson Sunday dinner. When he died he was buried on the course.
Finally, the lists are up for Lady President’s Day on 31 July. Please ensure you pay in advance for dinner. Book golf as usual on the BRS system.
