With a 9-hole novelty event testing their skills the lady golfers of Toronto Country Club finished up the year with only two clubs, a putter, a break up party and presentation on Wednesday 2 December . The biggest struggle of the day; figuring out which clubs to use. At the end of the day they’re always left wondering why you need fourteen clubs in your bag if you can function off two? Then for the talented, “blindfold” putting took place to win some chocolates.
Lady Patron, Melva Henry, special guest, is 102 years of age and is an inspiration to all our Lady Golfers. A little about Melva… In 1957 Melva was on the steering committee for Kilaben Bay Golf Club which was significant to its foundation and later progression to Toronto Country Club. That sums up Melva’s time with the Club at a whopping 58 years. Melva attributes her wonderful longevity to the ‘Three G’s’…Golf, Gardening and Grog (in moderation of course).
Other special guests included Margaret Quirk and Rita Dodd who participated towards the advancement of the Club during their active involvement.
Now, down to prizes. Prizes were shared for the Running Competition Events and Perpetual Trophy awards over the three divisions. This year’s Club Champion is Maureen Skeet. Maureen’s excitement and gratitude almost had her dancing on the table, with a little more encouraging she would have been hard to get down.
On behalf of the Lady Golfers, Directors, Management and Staff, we’d like to congratulate all the 2015 winners and place getters on their achievements this year. Happy Golfing!
