Lady Captains Blog (stardate 11th March 2019)

The weather has mostly been very kind to the Abridge Ladies in February and we have enjoyed some inventive fun team games and competitions. With the arrival of March our true golfing season is about to start with some competitions already beginning.

On Sunday in extremely windy and rainy competitions our winning pair of Carol Gray and Paula Wendleken set off for their Daily Mail Foursomes competition away in West Essex Golf Club. (They qualified for this by being the winning pair of our summer Greensomes competition). So representing Abridge Golf club in the most unfavourable conditions that I would not let my dog (if I had one) out on our adventurers battled forth. The brave battle went on for 19 holes but unfortunately our worthy Abridge ladies succumbed to defeat after a tremendous effort.

Well done Carol and Paula for your supreme effort in horrendous conditions. Now you will have to champion your way in the summer Greensomes competition again this year.

Talking of summer competitions this is now the time to sign up to play the Midsummer cup and the Summer Greensomes. Please put your names down so that we can make the draw at the beginning of April.

Our winter knockout is coming to a close and our two finalists are playing their match on 31st March. Good luck to both Mandi Barker and Paula Wendleken.

Our first Bronze Match away at Frinton Golf Club is fast approaching. Karen Rosenbloom will captain the team. Good luck to all the players and caddies.

We have our  eagerly awaited, popular Ladies Quiz with fish and chips supper again this year on Tuesday 7th May at 7.00 for 7.30.

Please ask your friends and make up a table now. If you cant make up a table just bring a couple of friends and we will put you on a table. If you havn’t  got any friends ( then I’m a bit sorry for you) just bring yourself. We need to make the evening a bumper success. Every penny raised goes directly to the home  Beit Uri Home for disabled children and adults to help enable them to has a full and purposeful life.

Also just a reminder that we need your games in for Charity Day plus gifts for the tombola and sponsorship. Alison and her committee are working so hard to enable to make sure the day will be fantastic. I know that many ladies from other golf clubs look forward to our special day that is always run with sparkle and pizzazz.

Well enough rambling from me folks.

See you all soon

Love Deb xx

Course Management workshops

In addition to golf lessons and club fitting, Reece and Bobby are hosting regular monthly golf seminars at Abridge Golf and Country Club. These seminars are open to all members and guests.

In the next one of the series, the guys will be looking at the mental side of the game. As a result your thought processes should be much clearer on the course.

Course management – This is part of the game that is often overlooked. Yet it plays a vital role in lowering scores and maximising your golfing ability. 

Course strategy – A good strategy can save you countless shots over your golfing rounds

Pre shot Routine – bullet proof routine produces consistency as well as a positive mindset 

Shot choice – decisions on what shots to play by assessing what is in front of you landing spot, targets etc
