Ladies – Park Life

Sadly we have just learned of the loss of Peter Coad

and our thoughts go out to Angela and her family at

this very difficult time. Peter’s cheerful presence will

be missed by everyone at Tehidy Park.



November started with our monthly medal on

Tuesday 5th but the weather made the going difficult

with scores to match. However some ladies fared

better and the Captains’ Society Millennium Qualifier

which ran in conjunction produced a winner in Carol


The following day saw the last of the Away Days for

this year, 12 ladies went to Woodbury Park and had

a great day’s golfing. For some this was their first visit

to Woodbury and everyone agreed it was a super

course. Hopefully more away days will be organised

next year.

The Trelista Mixed Foursomes Cups were played for

on Sunday 10th and again the weather played a part

giving us mizzly conditions for most of the day.

Winning the Cups were Linda and Peter Toy with 35

pts, a fitting end to their weekend as they were

celebrating their forthcoming 40th wedding

anniversary. 2nd place went to Dick and Sue Rogers

35 pts and 3rd Paul and Caroline Phillips 33 pts. The

winners of the Odd Couples were Jenny Hamilton

and David Hughes 38 pts, 2nd Pat MacMichael and

Paul Caddy, 3rd Shirley Clark and Nigel James 33 pts

and 4th Liz Plechowicz and Bob Cope 33 pts.


The fun competition on Tuesday 12th was a drawn

competition over 13 holes, a stableford with 3 scores

to count on 1-4, two scores on 4-8 and one score on

9-13. In 1st place were Wendy Williams , Kathy Mann

and Penny Allan, 2nd Chris Williams, Anne Fitzhenry

and Chris Garrett and 3rd Lyn Brookes, Rosemary

Wedlock and Pat Murton.

The first round of the Dawe Cups was held on

Saturday 23rd. The temporary greens that were in

operation due to frosty conditions at the start of the

day were fortunately lifted in time for the matches to

go ahead.

Tuesday 26th was a 13 hole Greensomes competition,

the day was fine and dry and even sunny for a short

time with only one temporary green. The winners

were Lyn Brookes and Jane Hollis 28pts, 2nd place on

countback went to Barbara Gray and Jenny

Hamilton 27pts, 3rd were Chris Williams and Sue

Houghton 27pts and 4th Angela Anderson and Nikki

Martyn with 24pts.

Recently the Ladies Section was given a very

attractive silver Rose Bowl by Mary Rowe. It had

originally belonged to Rodney and Ryan Rowe’s

mother Marjorie Rowe who had won it in The Lady

Captain’s Prize competition in 1951. After some

discussion it was decided at the Ladies Committee

meeting on 26th November that this will be awarded

annually to the lady with the 4 best stableford scores

recorded between October and September and

presented at the Ladies AGM.

Congratulations to the Bowls, Wills and CTC teams, all safely through to their respective

Quarter Finals which will be played in the New Year.

Punch competition on Tuesday 3rd. Don’t forget to

At the cinema both “Philomena” and “Gravity” have been given great reviews from TPGC

ladies this month. Try watching “Gravity” in 3D without flinching! And if you go to the Merlin

Cinema at Redruth their meal deal gives you a choice of Main Course and your cinema ticket

for just £12.50 (£10.50 concessionary rate) – a bargain! Merlin also offers the “Movie Magic

Discount Card” which costs £7.50 for Adults and £5 for Seniors and children, with the card

adults save £2.00 and concessions £1.50 on standard admission prices for a year. The card also

entitles you to 10% off bar, restaurant and takeaway prices.

If you fancy a change from Golf why not try “Adventure Segway” at Mount Edgecombe near

Plymouth. These two wheeled personal transporters are suitable for anyone aged 10 or over,

and with a maximum speed of 8mph is great fun for all the family. Visit the website for more
