Coronation Cups 2021
The Coronation Cups competition was played at Southwell GC on Thursday 3rd June 2021. We were a small field, but made the most of a beautiful summery day (finally!) at Southwell. This really is a course of two halves, with a stark contrast between the nines, which most of us found challenging. Our winners with an excellent score of 41 points were Margaret Thorpe and Karen Donnelly from Ruddington Grange. Second place went to Jane Tucker and Julia Hatcher from Newark with 39 points, and third with 38 points were Jan Hooley and Pam Musson from Stanton. Just missing out on countback were Riemie Coulson and Marion Wraith from Southwell. Riemie is the Lady Captain of Southwell, and had done a magnificent job as Starter before playing herself, which makes their round all the more impressive!
I would like to thank Southwell for hosting us and making us so welcome. Thanks also to our stalwarts on the registration desk, Sue Robinson and Di Whittaker.

County Championship & Spring Meeting 2021
This event was held at Hollinwell from Friday the 14th May through to Sunday the 16th of May, the weather forecast was dreadful but was exceedingly kind to us apart from late on Saturday afternoon when it absolutely chucked it down! It was great to see so many competitors at Hollinwell and the scores were good overall. Thank you to all those who entered and continue to support County golf, I hope that you enjoyed your game and managed to catch up with old friends and maybe even make some new friends whilst enjoying competitive golf.
The results are reported in full below, but of note on the Friday was the morning best gross and nett round played by Maddy Smith who managed a score of 8 under par for a total of 67 – this is a course record. Cheryl Gee just missed out on the best nett with a score of 68 - a fabulous score. Congratulations go to all those who qualified for the knockout matches which were played over the weekend and to our new County Champion Libby Kilbride. The spectators were all treated to an extremely high standard of golf and the matches were all both nail biting and exciting.

County Waltz 2021
Thursday April 22nd was a fabulous day in so many ways. The sun shone and the spring flowers were out, but most importantly we were back enjoying a county competition! Twenty six teams waltzed around Oakmere Park, which was looking beautiful, and showing the benefits of its recent improvements.
While scoring generally proved tricky - blame the rust of lockdown! - a few teams stormed round and it was very close at the top. Southwell’s team of Sue Brownson, Wendy Stretch and Charlie Hall took the honours with 71 points, one ahead of second place Margaret Thorpe, Karen Donnelly and Yvonne Jones (Ruddington Grange) and third on countback Alison Johnson, Susan Nichols and Wendy Miller (Rushcliffe). Frances McGinty, Anne Thow and Pat Cawkwell (College Pines) came fourth. Well done to those teams, who will receive prize vouchers in the post.
I must thank Oakmere Park for hosting us so wonderfully, managing despite the restrictions to provide a lovely relaxed atmosphere and really exceptional food at the picnic tables. I know a few of us will be back for their fish and chips again! Thank you also to Sue Robinson, Di Whittaker and Rosemary Lockwood for their hard work on the day and in advance to ensure a smoothly run event. Full results available here.
Senior Vice Captain.
