the program of Meetings and Matches for 2024 for your diaries
Our Captain 2023-2024 Pat McNeil
|Dear ladies, as we now reach the end of the main playing season our thoughts and efforts may turn to Winter golf, chilly mornings, frosty greens, warm winter and waterproof clothing – I’m shivering already!
Therefore let’s not forget too soon the lovely golfing days we enjoyed throughout the Summer months.
Our inter county matches against Berkshire, Hampshire, Sussex and Kent all played in sunshine – with Surrey coming out on top in 3 matches.
Then our BIG DAYS – The Claret Jug, Spring, Summer and Autumn Meetings all blessed with good weather. Even the large oil spill incident on the M25 on the day of the Summer Meeting didn’t deter players; my grateful thanks to all the ladies who fought their way through heavy traffic to make their respective tee times, albeit with minutes to spare.
Our last event of the year was the Mixed Invitation at Tandridge Golf Club which was threatened with postponement due to heavy rain – I have never paid so much attention to weather forecasts in the immediate preceding 24 hours. I’m delighted to say the weather stayed dry enough to proceed with the day as scheduled; although all the bunkers on the course were deemed ‘out of play’ none the less the event proved a fitting conclusion to the season.
My thanks to all the ladies who supported the SLCS’s calendar of golf during 2023 – it was a pleasure for me and your Committee to organise the events for you to enjoy.
Next year is very significant year for our Society as we enter our 7th decade. The 60th Diamond Anniversary AGM is being held at Kingswood Golf Club on Wednesday 13th March 2024 – a definite date for your diaries.
All that remains is for me and your Committee to wish you the very best Seasonal Greetings.
