Lady Captain’s Open Day | Donation to Palliative Care

During her recent Lady Captain’s Open Day, our Lady Captain Florence Brunt asked that Members and visiting Lady Golfers should, if desired, make a donation to ‘Palliative Care’ in lieu of gifts.  She was aided in her fundraising efforts by the generous sponsorship of Gerry McNamee of CarZone Irvinestown, who once again provided a Nissan Micra car for a ‘hole in one’ on the 3rd hole during the Open Day. Entry to this part of the day’s competition incurred an additional £5 entry fee which was added to the amount raised.

Today Lady Captain Florence presented a cheque for £500 to Heather Gott, Palliative Care. Our thanks to all who took part in our Open Day Competition or sent donations, for their generosity in raising so much for such a worthy cause.

Lady Captain Florence’s Open Day – 17th June 2015

Our annual Lady Captain’s Open Day was held on Wedneday, 17th June 2015. Lady Captain Florence welcomed the Lady Members to the Clubhouse in the morning where the 2 ball pairings were drawn. A damp start didn’t dampen the Ladies’ enthusiasm with tee-off getting underway at 9.15am.

The big prize to aim for was a ‘hole in one’ on the 3rd hole (know as the ‘Dunt’), to win a Nissan Micra Car kindly sponsored this year again by Gerry MacNamee of CarZoneNI, Irvinestown. Unfortunately it was not to be and the car was still available after all the CVGC ladies had played through. The entry fee for this part of the day’s competition along with donations in lieu of gifts, is being donated to the Lady Captain’s chosen charity, ‘Palliative Care’.

Back at the Clubhouse the Lady Members were treated to tea, coffee, scones, fresh fruit and some home baked goodies. This was timed to coincide with the arrival of visiting Lady Golfers from nearby Clubs. Lady Florence welcomed the visitors and arranged for a shotgun start just after 2.00pm. By this time the drizzle of the morning had passed over to be replaced with dry but blustery conditions.

Lady Captain Florence had extended an invitation to the gentlemen members of Clogher Valley GC to play her competition over the previous weekend. Club Captain Sean, President Michael and several of the gents were on hand to represent the players with Captain Sean having presented Lady Capt Florence with a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers earlier in the day.

The winners and prizes were announced in the Clubhouse after visitors and members were served a finger buffet of sausages, sausage rolls, sandwiches, etc. There was a great atmosphere with everyone chatting, catching up with ladies from other Clubs and waiting to see what the winning scores would be. Unfortunately none of our visiting Lady Golfers managed a ‘hole in one’ either – we will all have to get practising!
