Louth Golf Club skipper Janet Ablott hosted a successful Lady Captain’s Day last Tuesday with weather and course conditions perfect for both morning and afternoon competitions.
A field of 37 ladies played an 18-hole stableford, while 33 survived ‘The Greenkeepers Revenge’ in the afternoon.
The nine-hole fun competition saw golfers trying to sink almost impossible putts by overcoming obstacles set up by the club’s team of greenkeepers.
All were imaginative and challenging, but the leaf blower on the third green, which blasted the golf ball away as it neared the hole proved the trickiest of all. Lady captain Janet provided a selection of homemade cakes and pastries, Pimms and chilled wine at the halfway house which she and helpers converted into a beach hut for the day.
Following the competitions all players and guests enjoyed a summer buffet before the presentations.
