Last year’s Lady Captain Sharon Rand, choose Weldmar as her charity, A grand sum of £5,500 was raised in total including a large sum from the sales of the lady’s ‘risqué’ calendar.

Competitions are well underway for the lady’s section, albeit still with some restrictions on account of the pandemic. The Interclub team have started their matches, unfortunately the Woods Trophy (formerly the Beales Trophy) has had to be cancelled and friendly matches are being played instead. Weymouth welcomed Broadstone for the Humphreys Bowl which we lost 2&1, the Parkin Cup match at Knighton Heath was conceded. We continue to welcome new members and some returnees to golf many of whom played in an evening 8-hole competition followed by supper in the clubhouse.

Weymouth ladies have been represented at several County events including the Seniors which was held at Came Down, the Spring Bronze at Wareham, Interclub Foursomes at Yeovil, and the Silver Challenge at Ferndown.

Sally Davies won the Seniors best nett with a nett 72 out of a field of 78 players. Angela Gasgougne, Katy Bean and Val Parsons played at an extremely wet Wareham at the County Bronze, Angela came second with Katy and Val close in the running.
