Happy Christmas To All The Santas Out There!
I love this time of year, especially on the golf course when I'm dressed up as Santa. Fortunately the weather was kind to us at Batchworth Park Golf Club in Hertfordshire for the annual Santa day, and in fact I played pretty well considering I was wrestling with some overlarge trousers and a white beard! I wasn't the only one, as the whole course was full of Santas. I was part of the ladies' team including Naga Munchetty, Lisa Skelton and Angie, and although we didn't win a prize, we had a respectable Texas scramble score, and then enjoyed a few glasses of Prosecco before tucking into a Christmas dinner.
Monday was the final Team Naga Munchetty vs Team Sir Clive Woodward match - this one was held on the wonderful Duke's Course at Woburn Golf Club. If you have read Naga's latest column in the Jan/Feb issue of Women & Golf magazine, you will already know that we've all learnt a lot about our golf this year, whilst taking steps through the TeeToCup learning programme. For me the lessons have been invaluable and I'm confident that they will come to fruition next year and that my handicap will go in a downward direction again. The good news for Team Naga is that we won the year-long challenge with the largest overall percentage team handicap reduction (no thanks to me!), so we took great pleasure in enjoying the moment, especially when Clive handed Naga a small bag of marbles as the winning trophy (pictured), and which are now fondly known as the golfing marbles!
That's it from me for this year, I'm now looking forward to Christmas and the New Year, and hope you are too. Have a happy and healthy one.
