Lady Captain's Day - 20th September 2018
Lady Captain Lesley chose Novelty Hats and Headwear as her teme for this year's Lady Captain's Day and the ladies didn't disappoint with both home made creations and embellished old favourites. A real change in temperatures made the day a little autumnal but didn't seem to affect the scorring.

3rd Place: Wendy Stewart with 36 points
2nd Place: Lis Isles with 39 points
1st Place: Caroline Hills with 40 points
Nearest The Pin: Caroline Hills
Longest Drive: Lis Isles
Winner of The Best Hat was Pat Hawcroft with her home made creation (although almost disqualified for carrying an extra club!). Here she is wearing her hat on the far left.
Vice Captain Julie White presented the Lady Captain with a engraved crystal bowl on behalf of the Ladies Section.
