Stourton Caundle Golf Society Couples Day – 22nd August 2021

After missing out on the Couples Day in 2020, the ladies were all very eager (?) to get back into the swing of things in 2021, and even though we had to delay a few extra months, it was worth it, and a very enjoyable day it was. The weather was with us, cloudy to start, but blossoming into a beautiful warm summer’s day. After a small mishap with the catering arrangements, instead of the usual BBQ, everyone brought a picnic, and it seemed to make the event even better. Groups were pre-determined, and with the ladies amongst friends, and supplied with some cocktails in a can for the walk round nobody was taking things too seriously. Many enjoyed a drink out on the course, and all enjoyed a laugh. It was another chance for the partners to find out just how frustrating golf can be, and for players to combine their two loves of golf and family time.

The format was set that the ladies would tee off. The shot would not count if missed, but if the ball was hit, even if it was just 1 inch, it counted. The playing partners then took over until the ball was on the green, where the ladies then took back over until the ball was in the hole. There was added balance this year with the inclusion, at least in part, of the players society handicap.

Once we were all in, the picnics were broken out and we all basked in the sunshine. Drinks were in hand, the food was done, and it was time for comments from our President, and the presentations.

Finally, and reflecting on Terry’s comments on the day, huge thanks go to Steve and all the Folke team, and to all the friends, partners and guests that joined us, for entering into the spirit of fun required, and enjoying the day for what it was.
