Ladies News

This is the third news installment of the Ladies News from Hampton Golf Club. With the end of August nipping at our heels we enter September with excitement for the Triple 6, a popular ladies invitational tournament, a member’s scramble and the closing scramble.

The ladies recently held a skills competition and are happy to say we have held our first home and home with Westfield in mid August. Fifty one ladies took part in the Hampton portion of the home and home and we anticipate another great turn out when we are in Westfield on September 5th. We must thank Jan Bower and Vivian Bhola for all their work in this our first home and home with another course.

Our ladies day format has acquired a few new members, but we seem to have lost several also. The executive is always trying to find the perfect fit to suit everyone’s expectations and your comments are always welcome. To that end we held a successful Crazy Hat skills competition on August 28th with 18 ladies (many deck out in Crazy Hats) to a mini course competition and discussion following for ideas concerning the Club Championship, Ladies Day format and an all lady’s member event in the future.  Congrats to Barb Dempster for winning the skills competition with Carol McNamee as runner up. Congrats also to Margo MacDonald for producing the Craziest hat of the night. Many thanks go to Travis (our pro) for his patience and running the skills competition.

We must note Jacie McCrae has broken 90 for the first time ever this year and we congratulate her on this accomplishment. Well done Jacie!

Schedule:

We continue to enjoy and marvel at the condition of our golf course. The grounds crew under the management of Andy McGee has done a superb job of keeping Hampton as one of the very best golf courses in the province!

It is time I think to sincerely thank the great executive I have had the pleasure to work with over the past year. Some members will be leaving the executive and I wish to acknowledge their contributions and knowledge the executive has enjoyed.

With the very enjoyable weather New Brunswick has been enjoying there is still lots of time for some golf. Hope to see you on the course.

Keep your head still.
