Ladies Spring Open - Tuesday 17th April
…..and then the sun came out !! Another fabulously successful day at the Links Golf Club when 104 Ladies from 25 different clubs played in our ever popular Spring Open on Tuesday 17 April.
The sun came out to greet them all, along with Linda from the pro-shop promoting the latest Spring/ Summer Ladies’ fashion collections. Mr Sharkey had a very big smile on his face at the end of the day so we can only assume that stocks are now low for Ladies' clothing.
Both the Spring and Autumn Opens have been oversubscribed for sometime and we already have entries ready for next year. These events are only successful because of the fantastic contribution our Ladies make in promoting,organising, baking and attending to our guests on the day.

LADIES AUTUMN OPEN 2017 - Tuesday 5th September 2017
104 ladies from 30 clubs played in our Autumn Open this week. A fun team event played off 7/8th of handicap with the best 2 scores on the Par 4s and 5’s and 3 scores on the par 3s. Always a very popular day with visitors and the same ladies seem to come back again each year. Many thanks to Marcella Tuttle and Kirsty Guthrie who did a fantastic job organising the event. Kirsty who has never organised such a large event at the club did an amazing job and was “on it” the whole time! A real keeper! We owe a huge thank you to the army of helpers who turned up looking so smart in their club uniforms. Sarah Greenall, Sue Nicholas, Chris Camplin and Pauline Kennedy on the registration desk; Jane Clark for meeting and greeting; and Edie Douglas, Mary Petty, Hilary Radford and new member Di Taylor for serving the fantastic cakes and savouries in the halfway houses. And of course we can't forget the many bakers and chefs who made such fantastic cakes and savouries. No doubt some of the visitors only come to play for the food in our halfway houses! Many thanks also to our gentleman starters Hamish Fleming and John Tuttle who stood out in the rain for the first hour!
The raffle took a profit of £300 for our selected charities The Pancreatic Research Fund and Prostate Cancer UK.
It looks like the Pro Shop did some amazing business as most ladies were carrying bags of goodies! Many thanks also to John Sharkey for giving the four nearest the pin prizes which he very kindly donates each year for both our Opens.
Everyone pulled together to make the day a huge success – a brilliant team effort.
