The Southsea Ladies always enter an annual competition run by Gosport Golf Club for all clubs in Hampshire. This is a pair’s competition consisting of 1 silver player and 1 bronze player; one must be a Vet (over 60). I have personally played in it many times over the years with many different partners. This year, I played with Mandy Roberts, going out on the 3rd tee time, and we came in with a score of 35 points, not very good, and we waited for all the other clubs to come in and we normally go home dejected yet again.
However, this year, we WON!!! Southsea have never won this trophy so we were over the moon. We keep the cup for a year in our clubhouse (I’ll get it engraved first and put it in our club’s trophy cabinet). The Gosport Lady Captain did send me a photo of us getting the trophy (copy
attached) but I don’t like it much so I’m going to ask her to send another copy – not so blue! The room was rather dark. I’m having a great Captain’s year so far.
