Ladies – Park Life






The month started with the extremely popular Pro-Am, over 40 teams from Cornwall and beyond competed. Four ladies teams also took part, thoroughly enjoying their day. The winning team came from Truro.

The Club Prize played alongside the August Medal on 6th was won by Carol Ryder.

On Friday 9th Gloria Sandow and Hilary Wood won the regional final of the Coronation Foursomes at Launceston, a fantastic result which means they now go through to the National Final at St Andrews on September 16th. Good Luck to both of you from everyone at Tehidy.

Monday 12th August saw the start of our Festival Week which continues to go from strength to strength each year. The sun shone on a staggering 898 golfers playing over the 5 days in a mixture of individual, team and mixed competitions it proves once again that Tehidy Park is one of the top Cornish clubs. A few more facts from the Festival’s 5 days:

984 Pints of beer, 191 glasses of wine and 483 cups of tea or coffee consumed.

338 Meals were eaten in the restaurant.

92 Prize Vouchers were written and issued totaling £3,975 in value.

The week finished by holding a Sunday afternoon BBQ with music by "Not the Beatles". The sun continued to shine which along with great food and a super atmosphere created a fitting end to a hugely successful week. Many thanks must go to Andrew and the Green Staff for the superb condition of the course, Ian Veale for the massive amount of organization that goes into this event and Martin, Kathy and staff for their hard work during the week.

All this and prizes too for only £24 per couple, fantastic value. A great score of 46 points saw Sue Pascoe and Liz Bird take first prize.
