Ladies Golf – December Monthly Medal & Tuesday Star Medalist Play-Off.
Summer was here briefly but Winter was back again on Tuesday when conditions were quite miserable & only 16 degrees! There was wind & misty rain making for a less than pleasant day ( a jackets on, jackets off day!) but there were still some pretty good scores as you can see below. The numbers playing were much lower than recent weeks, no doubt due to the sudden drop in temperature!
A total of 39 ladies (30*18 hole players & 9*9 hole players) played in the Stroke & Putting events. The 18 hole players were also competing for the December Monthly Medal & Tuesday Medal winners during the year to be the Star Medalist for 2021.
Some ladies have asked why the rakes are not in the bunkers & also why the flagsticks still cannot be removed. Both are in fact allowed but only if regularly cleaned under the high-touch surfaces provision. As the Valley does not have sufficient staff to comply with these cleaning requirements the decision was made to continue without rakes & not removing the flagsticks.
