Ladies – Park Life




ISSUE 10 – AUGUST 2013


Summer certainly arrived this month with wonderful sunshine and temperatures reaching well over 20C most days. We welcomed 2 new Junior Girls into the Ladies Section this month, Amy Butt and Harriet Rowe, both played in our fun competition and both were in the prizes! It’s school summer holiday time so please think about them when arranging your partners for golf comps, their telephone numbers are in the diary.

Our normal monthly medal on Tuesday 2nd July included the Country Prize and was won by Rosemary Wedlock.

The following day saw the first two sessions of our "effective practicing" drills run by Sue Houghton. These sessions are designed to show you how to maximise your practice routines to get more from them. All the ladies who attended found them very useful.

The Bronze Shield competition took place at Launceston on Thursday 4th and after the mist cleared was played in beautiful sunny conditions. This year for the first time the competition was played in 3s which for many teams made for rounds of 5 1/2 hours. Our team of Angela Anderson, Eileen Goundry, Louise Eslick and Rosemary Wedlock were placed 7th, winners were St Enodoc.

The ETS cups were played in glorious sunshine and produced a winning team of Karen Langford, Amanda East (both cutting their handicaps) and Linda Brooks with a total score of 227. In second place were Liz Plech, Carol Ryder and Pat Mac with 234.

The Cyril Baxter Trophies took place the next day on Sunday 7th July. The winners of this better ball competition were Bev and Paul Pascoe with a fantastic 50 pts, 2nd Lin O’Keefe and Tony Barbagello, 3rd Cath and Norman Hewlett and 4th Linda and Peter Toy.

Qui Gong sessions started again on Monday 8th. This gentle stretching class is proving very popular and more sessions are being planned for September.

The Lady Captain's Charity Day made its debut appearance on Tuesday 9th and was fantastically supported with 43 ladies playing. Lisa Gribble was with us representing Barclays Bank to present the prizes, all of which had been donated – thanks to Val Rowe, Carole Chapple and Jonathan Lamb.



The Ladies Club Championships on Sunday 21st was beautifully sunny but with a strong wind for the afternoon rounds. The winner of the Stanley Rowe Scratch Cup was Rachael Lloyd-Phillips, runner up Hilary Wood. Winning the Clark Shield was Sue Pascoe, 2nd Karen Langford. The Bronze Scratch Cup was won by Wendy Williams, 2nd Lauren Prouse, and the Banfield Shield winner was Margaret Richards, with Cath Hewlett 2nd. Many thanks to Ryan and Val Rowe, Bryan Wearne, Shirley Clark and Pauline and George Banfield for presenting the trophies.

Tuesday 23rd saw many Tehidy Ladies Past Captains playing in the Past Captain’s Trophy, and it was so nice to see many of our more senior ladies attending the evening dinner. Winning the trophy was Sue Rogers with Margaret Richards 2nd, best Silver was Pat Mac and best Bronze Dina Vague.

Friday 26th was the second of our "Away Days" this time we went to Newquay. The weather was again beautiful and after an excellent round of golf we ended the day with a bite to eat on the club balcony.

The Ward Trophy was held on Sunday 28th and we were delighted to have Anne and Peter Ward with us to present the prizes. Winning the trophy with a great nett 69 was Pauline Penna, runner up was Pat Mac, best Silver Hilary Wood and best Bronze Dina Vague.


August 2nd is the date for Tehidy Park’s Pro-Am, a big event in our yearly calendar. This is followed 10 days later by our Festival Week. The entry sheets have been on display in the 19th for several months now and every day’s competitions look to be almost completely full – a great testament to how popular this week is, not only with club members, but with golfers from other parts of Cornwall and beyond.

Tuesday 20th is Ladies Invitation Day, another very popular fun day of golf followed by dinner. For newer members if you don’t know anyone to invite have a word with a committee member and they will try and organise a partner for you. The Warren Trophy on Sunday 25th is the last of our "silverware" competitions for this year.

All the raffle prizes had also been donated by the ladies which meant all the monies raised would go to the charity. The amount of money raised for Little Harbour House was an amazing £535.80 which Barclays will match making a grand total of £1071.60 – a truly wonderful result. Many thanks to all those played, made donations and generally supported the day.

Tuesday 16th was the Millennium Trophy, given by Mary Tremaine in her Captain’s year 2000. It was an incredibly hot day with the individual 18 hole stableford competition being won by Pat Law with a superb 41 pts. 2nd on countback was Cath Hewlett with 38pts, best Silver was Linda Toy 38 pts, second Silver Monica Grigg 37 pts, best Bronze on countback was Rosemary Wedlock 36 pts and 2nd Bronze Barbara Gray 36 pts. The afternoon’s Bowmaker competition was won by Monica Grigg, Kathy Mann and Cath Hewlett.

During the Second World War the R&A issued the following:

"In competitions, during gunfire or while bombs are falling, players may take cover without penalty for ceasing play."

"A player whose stroke is affected by the simultaneous explosion of a bomb may play another ball from the same place. Penalty – one stroke".
