Bedfordshire Golf Club - Ladies Section 

Ladies Invitation Day – Tuesday 14 September 
 
We welcomed ladies from 12 clubs from as far afield as East Yorkshire in the North, to Kent in the South for our annual Ladies Invitation Day and it was lovely to see so many guests from diffferent clubs coming to play at Stagdsen. 
 
The club house was filled with the happy voices of ladies catching up with golfing buddies in advance of a 4BBB competition on this blustery but sunny day. The half way house was well stocked with a huge variety of cakes and biscuits which were polished off during the afternoon. 
 
A raffle in aid of Anne’s charity, Willen Hospice raised a magnificent £200. 
 
The results were as follows: 
 
1st Place - Chin Fern Griffiths & Margot Norris (Aspley Guise) – 39 points (on countback) 
2nd Place - Sally Shayler & Jenny Prior (Beds & County) – 39 points 
3rd Place - Linda Lewington & Mary Arthur (Woburn) – 35 points

Captain Anne’s Away Day to Overstone Park – Thursday 7 September 
 
Thursday dawned sunny and bright for Anne’s Away Day to Overstone Park in Northamptonshire. 18 ladies met for bacon rolls before a 3 Ball reverse waltz competition was played on this lovely parkland course. Very few of us had played there so the added treat of many water hazards made for an interesting day of golf. 
 
Post golf we sat down to a dinner of lasagne and salad followed by strawberry cheesecake. 
 
Some lovely prizes were available for everybody who participated. 
 
Results 
1st place – Sally Shayler, Grace Belcher and Sue Cribb – 74 points 
2nd place – Jean Brown, Sue Moore and Wendy White – 66 points 
3rd place – Jane Anderson, Carol Farnworth & Pauline Hulance - 65 points
