Sunday 4th December saw the Norfolk county girls and ladies play in this year’s Santa Special at Royal Norwich Golf Club.

The morning began with seven teams of three playing in the Turkey Trot Texas Scramble followed by five pairs of girls with lady partners playing in the 7 hole greensomes competition. All players brought a wrapped gift so whilst there were no actual prizes everyone received a gift with the winning teams getting first pick.

After play there were a few presentations which had been unable to be made at the autumn meeting. County Captain Sammy Martin presented Lily Farrelly from Dereham with her silver birdie badge and Amy Taylor from Bawburgh with the order of merit shield. She then presented the NLCGA girls county captain badge to Royal Cromer’s Amelia Williamson. Amelia said she was very pleased and proud to have been chosen as this year’s county girls’ captain. She said that whilst through her golfing commitments she was out of the county and country a fair while she would endeavour to attend as many events as possible. Amelia said 2016 had been a great year for Norfolk girls’ golf and she hoped 2017 would be even better.

The winners of the Turkey Trot were Shelley Pleasance, Freya Biles and Jennifer Brown and the greensomes winners were county junior organiser Carol Delf and Lilia Copeman.

County secretary Margaret Watson had made Santa cupcakes for all players and there was ‘make a snowman’ competition which was won by Jennifer Brown of Dereham.

Other presentations were made to outgoing county captain Tracey Williamson whose Norfolk team had had a very successful season and to Carol Delf who was thanked by Amelia on behalf of the girls for her continued hard work throughout 2016.

The girls’ next event will be the Spring Meeting at Great Yarmouth & Caister in April.
