NEWS AND TEE TIMES
Latest and upcoming competitions and events
It was another hot sunny day for our Gordon Planner Salver competition this week and there were some good scores again due to the very dry ground. The winner today was Linda Glennie on an amazing 44 points, with Margaret runner up just beating Gill, Beatrice and Pam on countback as they were all on 36 points Results here.
On Tuesday 16th August we have the Summer Meeting Cup which is a qualifying stableford competition. Please sign your intention to play on the TDL WhatsApp group. You can view the tee times below.
AWAY DAY TO LIMPSFIELD CHART CHANGE OF DATE!!
We were supposed to have our away day to Limpsfield Chart in Oxted on Thursday 11th August but with the forecast of hot weather once again Gill has decided to postpone it until a later date. It will now be on Thursday 15th September.
We will be playing 18 holes at 11.40 am followed by a cream tea at a total cost of £36 per person (cash payment on the day). Please let Gill know if you would like to attend (or advise her if you are unable to make the new date) as we do need 12 ladies to play.
LADY CAPTAIN'S DAY NOW ON 23RD AUGUST
You will have been notified of the change of date due to the hot weather. If there is a problem with the heat again that day the meal will go ahead anyway. Hopefully most people will be able to make the new date. If anyone is unable to make it please advise Gill and she will refund the cost of your meal. The format will be a non-qualifying stableford and you can purchase a Mulligan on each nine in aid of Gill's charity. There will be prizes for first, second and third overall and Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin.
We have our annual Invitation Day on Tuesday 11th October which will be a Four Ball Better Ball format with prizes for first and second couples, Nearest the Pin, Nearest the Line and a meal afterwards. So think about who you would like to invite now. Free green fees for guests.
Gill is organising a Quiz night on Saturday 29th October at Otford Village Hall so start thinking about drumming up your friends and relations to take part. There will be a charge of £10 per person to include entry fee, one raffle ticket and 'stand up - sit down' game. Up to eight people per table, take your own drinks and nibbles. There may also be an auction. It's always a fun evening so book your table with Gill now.
