Our ladies team comprising of Evelyn Somerville, Trish Barnett, Karen Rankin, Irene Mullen, Susan Holland, June Hussey, Joanna Lambert and Patricia Gubby took on the ladies of Mill Ride in some unaccustomed sunshine on Saturday at Mill Ride.

Despite Susan’s shock in her first ladies’ friendly at finding all her playing partners were taking shots off her (h/c 22), everyone had a good time on a course that looked very good – had lots of run on the fairways but slow greens.

We managed an honourable draw 2-2 and even spotted ‘our’ grown up Egyptian geese brood swimming on one of their lakes – complete with mum and the one with the white head!
