Hopelessly Devoted To ...

After a fabulous holiday to San Francisco which explains my absence from this blog, it was straight back to work in more ways than one as this didn't only include my day job but an annual weekend away with the ladies from West Essex Golf Club. This year we travelled to Meon Valley near Southampton.

What started as a day out nearly a quarter of a century ago has turned into a minimum two-night, two round break and it has become a big event. There's an organising committee of which I'm part of and the last couple of years, after the prize presentation, members of the committee put on a mini show. This year the theme was 'A night at the Movies' and featured the Blues Brothers, Eva Peron, Julie Andrews, Liza Minnelli, Phantom of the Opera, the doll on the music box from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Yours truly was Sandy from Grease, singing 'Hopelessly Devoted to You'. The finale was a dance routine to Abba's Dancing Queen.





The show takes a lot of organisation and effort from everyone concerned, but it was all worth it - there was no heckling, just a sing-a-long. As Grease was one of the first films I saw as a youngster, and of course for that reason, it remains as one of my favourites, I threw myself into the role (and costume!).

As you can see, in some ways golf played second fiddle for the committee members, but that's what the game should be about - enjoy playing the sport, doing the best you can, but also having FUN. The pressure is on for next year's 25th anniversary.

It's an early start tomorrow morning as I'm off to The Bedfordshire Golf Club to direct an instruction shoot with Samantha Head, so keep an eye on Women & Golf magazine and website for more great tips.
