Gig­gles aplenty for Wilm­slow

Macclesfield Express - - TRAVEL - GOLF GE­OFF GAR­NETT

WILM­SLOW Golf Club Lady Cap­tain El­iz­a­beth Black was de­lighted with the re­sponse to a fun mixed event she or­gan­ised at her club.

El­iz­a­beth ex­plained: “The event was ti­tled ‘Golf and Gig­gle’ and the for­mat was that an ex­ist­ing mem­ber played with a novice – child, spouse, part­ner or friend, a ju­nior with his mum, Lady Cap­tain with her bridge part­ner etc – a great va­ri­ety of com­bi­na­tions!

“The mem­ber got the ball from the tee onto or close to the green and the novice then putted.

“But on a very for­ward tee on the sixth hole the novice played all of the shots and groans and gig­gles could be heard all round.

“The dress was train­ers, no jeans, so it was then straight to the club­house for drinks and lunch off the bar menu where sim­ple prizes were pre­sented and any money left over went to the Lady Cap­tain’s char­i­ties.

“It was a very suc­cess­ful and en­joy­able day and by pop­u­lar re­quest it will be re­peated on Oc­to­ber 29.”
