The Captain has already mentioned his involvement in the day which went really well. Everyone did their best to enter into the spirit of a day at the beach, including some interesting golfing gear! Well done to those that went the extra mile.
It was taking quite a risk to shake the traditions of LCD by introducing a fun format. However, extensive research suggested it would be greatly welcomed by both low and high handicappers. The enthusiasm with which the ladies threw themselves into the spirit of the day, dressing appropriately for a seaside Summer holiday and decorating their trolleys, was a joy to behold. I am so grateful to those who went the extra mile for me.
Hope House was festooned with buckets and spades, seagulls, surfboards and fishing net and the gentlemen helpers also dressed appropriately, with many a knotted handkerchief and rolled up trouser leg on view.
The party atmosphere at the putting competition was great, with Pimms, nibbles and ice creams for all. Waldorf and Stadler served the ladies well and fortunately the weather was kind to us.
The evening party was marvellous fun, which was enjoyed by members and their guests. Who will ever forget the sight of Neil, Myles and James in their swimming trunks!
They were such good sports. It was extra special for me to have my two girls, Laura and Diljeet, with me to celebrate my most extraordinary day.
