We run other competitions over six month periods throughout the golfing year, 1st April to 30th September, and 1st October to 31st March. All of these must be entered on the sheets which are put up on the notice-board and the relevant fees paid at the beginning of the six months period:
Summer & Winter Eclectic
In these competitions you record the best gross score obtained on each hole over the six month competition period for a maximum of 20 attempts. The first entry must show the full 18 holes, subsequent entries need only show holes on which you have improved your gross score and can be played at any time. A player must sign up for the competition and pay the entry fee prior to putting in the first card. Thereafter the eclectic book must be signed prior to commencing play. At the end of the six month period, the gross score is totalled and a percentage of the competitors’ current handicap is deducted. The winner is the lady with the lowest net score.
In this competition, open to those with handicaps of 20 and above, every gross par scored in a qualifying competition counts. The winner is the lady with the most pars recorded at the end of the six-month period.
During the winter season when the weather is not so good and many ladies find that a shorter round is more than sufficient, we run a winter league over 12 holes. This is a Stableford competition and results in a winner for each week that it is played, and an overall League winner at the end of the whole competition.
Charity Invitation Day
The Ladies’ Captain and the Club Captain select a charity to be supported throughout their year (Oct – Sept). This is an open event for pairs from Windlesham and other clubs with a meal and presentation of prizes and a raffle – all proceeds going to the chosen charity.
Every gross birdie scored in a qualifying competition is recorded. The winner is the lady who had the most birdies at the end of the six month period.
Ladies versus the Tuesday Boys
This is a friendly competition against a group of men who meet every Tuesday morning to play a round of golf. Started by Jim Clysdale, Mike Childs, Mike Lee and Kelvin Cox when the club was first founded they were named the “Tuesday Boys” by four ladies – Patricia Gubby, Angela Couzens, Jan Mazurk and Margarita Spencer – who were new to the game and the men offered to help them improve their scores. Once the ladies were able to score less than 15 on the first hole the two groups started to have fun mixed competitions and this has continued ever since.
Baxter Trophy, Patricia Baxter Trophy and Chris & Derek Thomas Bowl
These are competitions we hold with the Highwaymen (our senior men’s section) followed by a social meal and prize giving.
Ladies and Juniors Texas Scramble
This is a fun day with the junior section of the club when teams are made up of two ladies and two juniors followed by a lunch of sandwiches and chips.
On one Wednesday morning we all go to another club to play and their lady members come to Windlesham.
We arrange a trip to another club for any lady members wishing to go, for a game with prizes and a meal.
