Captain's Charity Day raises More than £5K for MS Society

   

Black clouds hovered over the Common, it soon started raining, and the pace of play was slow, but you can't keep WCGC members down for long and by early evening the club was buzzing on our Captain's Charity Day on Saturday 9th August 2017. This year's Captain Martin Finn and Lady Captain Gilly Briant raised money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of the UKThe format was Thief in the Bag, a fiendish competition which involved winning teams confiscating a club from their opponent every time they won a hole, which some players enjoyed with a relish that was positively brutal, while others forewent the thieving. Strulligans—lengths of string to be used as mulligans—were on sale and holes were sponsored by area businesses and club members. Gordon House ran a chaotic auction which contributed £2000 to the funds raised. Nobody had a hole-in-one, so the magnificent prizes on offer, of a car, trips, and golf clubs, went unclaimed.

Martin Finn presented a succession of generous prizes, with John Harrington & Denis Lenihan winning the main event. Swing studio nearest-to-pin winner was Graeme Todd. The putting competition was split four ways between Jez Warren, Steve Murray, Chris Hobbs, and Ben Turner, all with 16 putts on the 9-hole putting course. The straightest drive / nearest to line on the 6th was Chris Moody. Ladies longest drive winner was Kate Pope and Men's longest drive was Brian McCarthy. Phil Amuaku won nearest to pin on the 16th.

Many thanks to Martin, Brian Cox, who issued and received the scorecards, hole-in-one spotters including Sue Payne, and the Clubhouse Manager Emma Pope and her team for organising such a great day and serving a brilliant barbecue. Special thanks to all of the golf clubs who donated fourballs to the auction and the businesses who sponsored holes and offered prizes. More than £5,000 was raised for the MS Society.

   

WCGC Men Retain Triangular Trophy 2017

   
     

Captain Martin Finn led the club to its first major victory on the 7th July, when WCGC retained the Triangular Trophy — an annual Foursomes match against Royal Wimbledon and London Scottish, which this year WCGC hosted. This year's team featured four outstanding performances of 43 points from Martin Finn & Neil Herbert, Steve Murray & John Harrington, Peter Wallder & Ben Turner, and Pat Donaghy & Dave Emsley, a score only beaten by one other team (Peter Mason and Tommy Tighe for the Scottish). WCGC won by twenty two points. (WSCG 238; LSGC 216; RWGC 194). 

   

 

Ladies 5th in Druce

   
2017 Druce Team
Virginia Marin, Jane Britton, Jane Logan, and Madge Corbitt competed for the Druce Trophy at Bramley Golf Club, 6 July 2017.
   
     

The WCGC Ladies team finished 5th out of 60 teams from all over Surrey in The Druce Competition 2017 as they fought to defend the title they won last year at the first time of entering. 

This is one of Surrey’s most prestigious events requiring two pairs of players from each club, with a bronze and silver player playing foursomes. Major Surrey clubs compete including Wentworth, Sunningdale, The Royal, Wimbledon Park, and Malden.

WCGC started the day just after 8.00 am playing alongside Walton Heath who had the recent Surrey Ladies Captain playing off 6 in their team. The first pair out for WCGC was Madge Corbitt and Virginia Marin who posted 94 gross, as did Walton Heath, giving Jane Logan and Jane Britton a very tough target as the second pair out. Coming in at almost 5.00 pm in steaming heat, the ladies were thrilled to have shaved a further 11 shots off the morning team’s total and so moved into second place. But as the rest of the teams came in with final scores and the 1/4 of combined team handicaps were applied, the finalised scores placed our ladies in 5th position.

Speaking of their success captain Jane Logan said: “This is a huge competition with 240 competitors, involving more than 50 people behind the scenes from the Surrey committee to scorers, referees, catering staff, meeters and greeters, car parkers etc. For WCGC to achieve 1st and 5th out of 60 clubs in the two years they have entered is quite extraordinary given the size of our club. No clubs that have won the event have successfully defended the title but our ladies certainly gave the opposition a good run for their money!"

Ladies Make their Mark in the Mary Forster Bowl

   

WCGC Ladies narrowly missed out in the Final of the Mary Forster Bowl, a National competition run by The National Association of Public & Proprietary Golf Clubs (NAPGC), when they found themselves 6 points behind Richmond, who in turn finished 3 points behind winners East Hampstead.

Six different WCGC competitors had represented the club in 4 regional rounds over the winter before the team qualified as regional finalists.

In the final staged at Cherwell Edge GC in Oxfordshire, Jo Elder, Madge Corbitt, and Valerie Ghent were supported by ‘caddies’ Jane Logan and Jane Britton, as they took on the challenge against the five regional finalists with all scores to count.

While the team narrowly missed out, Madge Corbitt was one of the top three players overall – all posting scores of 39 – so at our first time of entry into the competition, the WCGC Ladies definitely made their mark.

Not Just Golf: Play Friendly Bridge at Wimbledon Common Golf Club

   

One of the benefits of joining the Ladies Section of WCGC, either as a lady golfer or as a social member, is that you can join our Bridge Section, which meets every Monday afternoon in the Lenton Room. We regularly have three or four tables playing either Chicago or Duplicate. Members are asked to sign up on a monthly basis and pay £2 per session.

 
"No matter where I go, I can always make new friends at the bridge table." 

--Martina Navratilova

 

 

Our bridge afternoons are extremely friendly with lively discussions about unusual hands, conventions, and just "how might I have done that differently?” Last year we organised a few group lessons which were very successful and we now put what we learnt into practice! We are planning more lessons over the coming year.   

We organise several friendly matches against other local golf clubs throughout the year, and every November we run a Charity Bridge Afternoon with the proceeds going to the Lady Captain’s Charity. This year's beneficiary is Princess Alice Hospice. The Charity Bridge Afternoon is very popular and well supported, and the ‘afternoon tea’ is legendary! 

If you would like to join us on a Monday or just come along to see how it all works, or for more information about the Charity Bridge Afternoon, please email Elizabeth de Bay c/o WCGC office or call 020 8946 7571.

Ladies Beat 59 Teams to take Surrey Druce Trophy
   
 Winners at The Drift Golf Club
Madge Corbitt, Jane Britton, Jane Logan, and Valerie Ghent with the Druce Trophy at The Drift Golf Club

Four Wimbledon Common Golf Club ladies claimed victory over 59 other Surrey club teams, on their first attempt competing in the Surrey Ladies County Golf Association's Druce Trophy, at the Drift Club in East Horsley on 7 July 2016. 

Described by SLCGA President Rosemary Wallis as Surrey’s biggest and most prestigious annual golf competition, 240 ladies took part on the day. The competition was first played in 1955 in memory of Mary Druce who worked tirelessly for the SLCGA. The 36 holes eclectic stroke-play foursomes competition requires two pairs to play, consisting of one handicap plus to 20 and one handicap 21 to 32; higher handicaps can play off 32. The final score is the aggregate of the best score on each hole, with the team in the afternoon trying to better the morning team's score.

In the morning, Madge Corbitt (17 handicap) partnered with Valerie Ghent (33 handicap but having to play off 32) to post an excellent combined gross score of 99 on the par 72 course. In the afternoon it was the turn of Jane Logan (15 handicap) and Jane Britton (25 handicap), who posted an improvement of 15 shots, bringing the stroke score for the team down to 84.

As the ladies waited for the handicap adjustments to be made and net scores to be entered, the buzz in the clubhouse was palpable. With only six teams left to return scores, Wimbledon Common Golf Club headed the leader board. Minutes later a stunned and almost speechless team were praised by the SLCGA President for their outstanding and remarkable achievement.

Speaking afterwards team captain Jane Logan said: “Wimbledon Common Ladies section only began 11 years ago and other than the Pearson Trophy this was our first venture into Surrey Golf. The Druce Trophy is a marvellous opportunity as it requires lower and higher handicappers to work together to achieve the best scores in a fun foursomes competition spread over the day. The WCGC team supported each other throughout the day with the afternoon pair walking the course with the morning pair and vice versa. The team were thrilled to bring home the trophy for WCGC and very grateful to the huge team from The Drift and SLCGA who made this such an extraordinarily well-organised and enjoyable event.”

Joanna Croker's Golf Day Benefitted Princess Alice Hospice 4th July 2016

--by Joanna Croker, WCGC Lady Captain 2016-17
2016-17 Captain Neil Herbert had already elected to support the Princess Alice Hospice as his nominated charity this year, so when I became Lady Captain it seemed logical to join forces. They helped a family friend of ours, and more recently a young business colleague of Andrew’s.

So on Monday 4th July 2016, I hosted an invitation golf event. The weather was perfect, and the course in amazing condition. Also special thanks to Clubhouse Manager Emma Pope and PGA Professional Jeff Jukes who made sure it all ran smoothly.

We had ten teams of four, with Neil’s team using all that local knowledge to win the trophy (which was actually rose magnums – Neil has enough trophies). His team mates were Chris Bye, Martin Mierswa, and Ollie Hynes.

A lot of guests saw the course for the first time – universally loving the greens, finding it harder than they thought, and experiencing what seemed to have been a Crufts open day. But they all loved it. The timings were a little compromised by some navigation issues, with one group heading up the 18th after the 4th, but it all worked out in the end.

Those with us included former tour pro and Swiss Open winner Chris Moody, St George’s Hill pro Adam Morganti, ITN newsreader Mark Austin, TV presenter Matt Lorenzo, former rugby international Nick Greenstock (a one cap wonder!), and several very good lady golfers. Other than that the field was heavily populated by the great and good from the sports industry.

And finally, and most importantly, we raised over £2700 – with a mad rush to buy mulligans once they realised how tough it was out there.

Ladies' Open Team Challenge Welcomed Effingham, Roehampton, Reigate Hill on 22nd June 2016

Anna O’Neill donated the silent auction prize of a 4-ball at Kingswood, and Sue Payne sold raffle tickets and gathered auction bids. The total raised for the Princess Alice Hospice was £570.

Special thanks go to scorer Brian Cox, the marshals on the day, and the WCGC clubhouse for an exquisite lunch in the Lenton Room.

Pearson Ladies' Team Finishes Second in Group
   
     

Results of this year’s first round of the Pearson Trophy are now in. Coombe Hill won our group with 32 match wins, and we came second with 24. This is an excellent achievement for the Wimbledon Common Golf Club ladies' squad.

The Pearson Trophy was started by pioneering lady golfer Issette Pearson (1861-1941), who helped develop and champion the golf handicapping system to allow varied levels of players to compete, and who formed the Surrey Ladies’ County Golf Club, now the SLCGA. She originally played at what was then the Wimbledon Golf Club, in 1893.

The first Pearson Trophy was played by teams of lady golfers in 1911. In the Trophy’s 100th year in 2011, 179 clubs competed from the counties of Hertfordshire, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey. Coombe Hill advances to the second round of the Surrey Cup and will play against Burhill, Windlesham, and Kingswood by the end of April. 

Pearson teams play a home match and an away match against each squad in their group, in a Singles Matchplay format with seven players per match. In our group this year were first round winners Coombe Hill, plus North Downs and Woldingham. A selection from among nearly 20 intrepid WCGC ladies braved the winter cold and damp to compete in six matches, with our only losses occurring to Coombe Hill. The first match on 6th November against North Downs was sadly postponed due to weather. We lost against Coombe Hill 5 – 2 away, also in November. In December we played Woldingham away and won 5 – 2. In January we played Coombe Hill at home and narrowly lost 4 – 3. We beat Woldingham at home 6 – 1, and beat North Downs at home 4 – 3. The last match was Friday, 26th February, when we beat North Downs away 4 – 3.

"A lot of compliments have been directed my way on the team's performance this winter and I wish to turn it round and say a big congratulations and thank you to the whole squad." 
--Merlyn Law, Pearson Captain 2015-16


Congratulations and thank you’s go to this year’s players Karen Owen, Madge Corbitt, Jo Elder, Gilly Briant, Jane Logan, Valeska Maclachlan, Lindy Ratner, Lynne Mikhelson, Joanna Croker, Nela Hemmings, Shirley Tilley, Hatsumi Takahashi, Jane Britton, Jo Bacon, Virginia Marin, Valerie Ghent, and Caroline Wyld.
 

Special congratulations go to our 2015-16 Pearson Captain Merlyn Law. Invaluable support was provided by Lady Captain Janice Brackenridge and Past Pearson Captain Lindy Ratner.

 The biggest congratulations are in order for the Coombe Hill Captain and we hope they win the Surrey County Cup! Track their Pearson Trophy progress via the Surrey Ladies Golf website.
