Ladies Section

This little gem of a Golf Course has a friendly Ladies’ Section, which has Tuesday as its Ladies’ Day, when Members take part in fun and serious competitions (Medals, Stablefords and a variety of Trophy Competitions). Medal/Stableford competitions are also held at the weekend for those Ladies unable to play on Tuesdays. The Competition Board looks very busy in the welcoming Ladies’ Room at the Club. At the end of the main competition season the Ladies have a Presentation Evening rounding off the evening with a Dinner provided by our Catering Staff.

The Ladies’ Section holds two Open Competitions each year, the Ladies AM-AM in July and a 3 Ball Alliance held in August. The Ladies also organise a Mixed Open during June and take part in many national prestigious competitions – the Daily Mail Foursomes, the Peugeot Coronation Foursomes, and many more.

We have a flourishing Bridge Section, (particularly when the weather is not quite so kind), along with two Charity Bridge Drives during the year.

The Droitwich League, for Handicaps of 21 and under, holds 5 matches during the season and there are 12 inter-club Friendlies for the higher handicappers – up to 36. Special Club Nights are held on a Thursday evening twice monthly throughout June, July and August; a 9 hole friendly competitions followed by Supper.

During the year there are seven Mixed competitions mainly held at the Weekends, along with the Frank Vincent Trophy – Knockout Competition – played from May to September. The exception is the Midsummer Madness, not for the faint hearted – an early start of 7.00am finished off with Bucks Fizz and a Full English breakfast!

To complement the super Golf facilities the Club hosts many social events throughout the year, usually accompanied by wonderful food and great company.

The Club has vacancies for new lady members and anyone interested in taking up the game of golf, or joining EGC, should contact Fraser Williamson (Secretary) on 01386 860395 or email the club via our contact page.

Celebration Day

Past and and Present Captain

Past Lady Captain, Sue Taylor and present Lady Captain, Melanie Evans exchanged brooches today at the Disney themed Celebration Day. It was the first opportunity to have 30 ladies celebrating with lunch after 12 holes of golf. A wonderful day was had by all.

Ladies Captain Drive In

Our new Ladies Captain, Melanie Evans, carried out her first duty following the easing of lockdown; the annual Ladies Captain “drive in”. Due to social distancing the tradition was performed in a slightly different way, with a “spot the ball” grid drawn up on the first fairway and an area allocated to each of the lady members. Three balls were driven off the first tee, the first hurtled down the fairway stopping in a very favourable position, the second and third were not quite so polished!

The winning squares on the spot the ball which was adjudicated by Penny, Elaine and Marilyn were:

Hana Reid, Elaine Frostman-Clarke and Joan Hunt, congratulations to all.

With this Tuesday being the clubs “Ladies Day” there were 28 members who enjoyed a beautiful day of sunshine on a well manicured course.

Ladies Captain Charity 2021

Ladies at Evesham Golf Club used their baking skills to produce a beautiful selection of Mother’s Day cakes to donate to Pershore Community Cupboard.

Melanie Evans, Evesham Golf Club Ladies Captain has chosen the Community Cupboard to support by way of food donations during her year as Captain. During lockdown, along with baking, the section have continued in their social style with on-line bridge, zoom meetings and regular phone contact; but the Ladies are more than ready to be back out on the beautiful course at Evesham come 29th March.

The Community Cupboard started in April last year with a few draws outside the home of organiser Jane Keen-Smith, with a few essential items because the local food bank had to close. It soon became clear that this was needed and the project built up to what it is now with a large group of volunteers collecting food from over 22 different places each week including supermarkets and shops. Parcels are delivered to people who are shielding or struggling, it is open to anybody who is in need. Talks are now in place with the Baptist Church in Pershore who have offered a large room and storage so that the project can continue on a more permanent basis. It will also allow the CC to be registered to help the longevity of the project and be able to apply for funding.

Jane was delighted with the cakes and said 'they had all gone and everyone was over the moon with them, I saw a little boy and girl who came with big teen brother to get their single mum a treat, they were so happy and said she’d had a really tough time so it was lovely to see the kids so excited’.

Senior Ladies Championship

Despite a rather worrying weather forecast thirteen Ladies set out to play in the annual Senior Ladies competition last Friday. This is a Stableford competition played over 9 holes for a Trophy donated many years ago by Audrey Piddington , one of our Past Lady Captains.

As the morning progressed, it was evident that the weatherman at the BBC had got the forecast spot on and as the sky darkened, the expected rain showers began to fall. One or two Ladies decided to call it a day and headed for the shelter of the clubhouse where coffee and dry clothes were very welcome!

The remaining Ladies finished the competition just before the heavens really opened and the greens began to flood. By then we were all warm and dry and enjoying an excellent lunch prepared by Bev and her catering staff.

Results: Winner with 15 points, Carol Yates, runner up with 13 points, Margaret Roberts and in third place with 12 points was Angela Fletcher.

Lady Captains’ Day

An envelope may be opened at any hole before teeing off, contents included - ‘double your score at this hole’, 'have a free putt’, ‘use a lifeline’ - all a mystery, which added to the fun.

After an enjoyable game the ladies were joined by some non playing members for tea, and delicious strawberries and cream For further amusement there was a small competition for the best composed limerick. Lady Captain read the various contributions. The winners, as decided by Gill Smith, were table two, who’s limerick received raucous laugh from all.

Tuesday 29th May - Bisque Competition

An interesting competition was played today, called Bisque. Prior to playing the teams of three had to nominate 5 holes where they felt they could score well, as their scores were then doubled and all three scores counted. Not an easy task I was told, perhaps handicaps were discussed too! On the remaining 13 holes, the best two scores were counted. The weather was pleasant with only a slight breeze to contend with, so a good time was had by all.

The winners with an amazing score of 102 points were Margaret Williams, Gill Smith and Conryn Abbott.

Daphne Shields Trophy - Tuesday 22nd May 2018

The CSS was 76 meaning a reduction only for handicaps. A nine hole qualifier was also played with the winner being Sheelagh Crane, how wonderful to see her back playing, well done Sheelagh.

Tuesday 3rd April - Texas Scramble

What a day of mixed weather, everything was thrown at us - rain, hail, shine and wind. Twenty four ladies played in teams of three in this fun competition. All ladies had to have at least four drives each, thereby thoughtful decisions were needed.

Fortunately the weather had eased but snow was still lying on parts of the course, particularly in the bunkers.

Broadway started well taking the first 2 holes, Evesham coming back to all square on the 7th. Broadway went up a gear to be 2 up at the turn. Evesham won one further hole on the 12th to be beaten on the 15th, 5-3.

The match was played with great spirit, allowing Angela and Penny a most enjoyable first experience of this competition.

Ladies Captain’s Drive In

On Tuesday 6th March we held our Ladies Captains' Drive in. This was far from an ordinary event as four ladies are sharing this role with a three month period each. It will be an interesting year which we all embrace and very much look forward to. Perhaps this will be the way forward as more and more ladies have other commitments so sharing will be the new norm? Evesham Golf Club lead, others follow?

Our four gracious Lady Captain's, Conryn Abbott, Eunice Allen, Patsy Brumage and Angela Budden were joined by Pat Saville to play their tee shot to anxious ladies waiting to be greeted by their balls. Nearest their balls were Gill Smith, Mel Evans, Hana Reid, Ruth Masters and Carolyn Washbourne. A Bogey Competition was then played in pleasant weather considering all the snow we had encountered over the previous weekend. The course was playing well with signs of spring as daffodils were raising their blooms despite being smothered by earlier snow.

Our winner in this formidable format was Ruth Masters with plus two, followed by her playing partner, Melanie Evans with plus 1.

The afternoon continued with birthday celebrations of one of our lovely lady members - Jackie Edmunds. We all enjoyed birthday cake, delightfully made by Ruth Masters, and a glass of wine in her honour.

A good day was had by all, well done ladies.

Stableford -Tuesday 27th January 2018

With snow showers forecasted our ladies still braved the elements to play a Stableford competition in teams of three. It wasn’t long before the first snow shower came, making visibility and ball spotting difficult. However, we battled on to finish 9 holes with some good scores coming in with 2 ladies achieving 20 points. The winner on count back was Ruth Masters followed by Jill Cleary.

The afternoon continued with a visit from Ken Piddington and his daughter Janet. They brought lovely photos of the late Audrey, who was a long standing member and very dear friend to many of our ladies. Ken was proud of these photos of Audrey as Lady Captain making many of her presentations. Janet continued by saying she was pleased to see so many of her mum’s friends in one of her favourite places. She said that her mum’s passions were her beloved Ken, her family, career and her love of golf. She said she was a ‘force to be reckoned with who lived life to the full and enjoyed her many holidays with Ken’.

It was a lovely afternoon and Eunice thanked Ken and Janet for sharing such treasured memories of Audrey. We all enjoyed sandwiches, scones with cream and jam and a glass of wine in Audrey’s memory. Thank you Ken and Janet, a very pleasant afternoon enjoyed by all.

American Foursomes - Tuesday 20th February

On a fine but breezy February day our ladies strode out to play American Foursomes where both players play tee shots at each hole, then play a second with their partners ball. One ball is then selected to continue to hole out. It’s a fun competition, needing a little thought and strategic planning on occasions. Good scores came in with the winners, Sally Deakin and Audrey Tomkins having 50.4, well done ladies. Our runners up with a respectable 53.4 were Mel Evans and Angela Budden.

4 Clubs and a Putter - 13th February 2018

We all knew that our good fortune of mild and dry January weather couldn’t last for our ladies on a Tuesday. Today was the day when a ‘band of wet weather’ was due to hit us by lunch time. It was therefore agreed to play a nine hole competition.

All armed with our bag of only 5 clubs we played this competition in good spirit.

The winner was Margaret Roberts with 16 points, closely behind was Sandy Insall with 15 points and in 3rd place was Conryn Abbott with 15 points (on count back).

Tuesday 16th January

Tuesday 5th December - 4 Clubs and a Putter

A dry and mild day saw 30 ladies play in this 12 hole competition. We all asked our selves ‘why do we take a bag full of clubs when we can play with only 5?’. A very good question which the good scores confirmed.

Runner up with 21 points was Eunice Allen
3rd place with 20 points was Annie Bird

Tuesday 28th November - Back 9 Competition

On another bright but cold November day our ladies played the back nine holes in a stableford format for this competition. This time of the year our ladies rarely play holes 13-18 so it was an interesting challenge for some.

Our winning lady with 17 points was Margaret Roberts, closely followed with 16 points were Audrey Tompkins and Dinah Wood

Ladies Presentation Evening 2017

Thirty six ladies attended the presentation evening where everyone could celebrate their year of golf achievements. A number of trophies had been presented to winners throughout the year, however, there were still some remaining that were presented during the evening by the Lady Captain.

The day always starts with a twelve hole competition for the Vet’s Trophy for ladies over sixty years. The conditions were awful with the heavens opening when many ladies were playing. So torrential was the rain that some ladies abandoned their game. However, some determined ladies battled on. The winner was Angela Fletcher with 22 points closely followed by Penny Osborne with 20 points. For the remaining lucky ladies who haven’t reached the age to play in that competition a friendly stableford was played for to win the Captain’s Friendly Trophy.

Ladies Captain's Away Day 15th August

Twenty eight Ladies travelled to Bransford Golf Club to play and enjoy a fun competition in teams of four for the Ladies Captains' Away Day. The format was Stableford, best two scores to count and three scores on all Par 3's. There were also prizes for nearest the pin on all Par 3's.

The sun shone on a beautiful, lush course. It was tricky in places with a lot of water to challenge the minds. However this did not deter the competitive spirit with some high scores coming in.

Nearest the pin winners were Joan Hunt, Gill Smith, Mel Evans and Sandra Piovesana, pictured with Eunice Allen.

Runners Up with 83 points were Frances Wilkinson (Lady Captain Eunice Allen), Jean Bevan, Sandra Piovesana and Enid Walker

The Winning Team with 85 points - Angela Fletcher, Patsy Brumage, Marlene Billings, Gill Smith with Lady Captain Eunice Allen.

Celebrations were also in full flow for our very own Enid Walker who enjoyed her 80th birthday in grand style. Our Ladies enjoyed bubbly and a super birthday cake kindly made for Enid as a surprise by Ruth Masters. Lighting the extra large candle set off the fire alarm so everyone in the club house were made aware of the celebrations.

Many Happy Returns to Enid.

Craycombe Trophy and Avon Cup

On Tuesday 8th August 26 ladies competed for either the Craycombe Trophy, maximum handicap 28 or the Avon Cup, handicaps 29-36, both playing stableford. We were fortunate that the forecasted rain kept away to enable good scores to come in resulting with some handicap changes.

The winner of the Avon Cup was Lesley Kewley with 35, pictured below with Lady Captain, Eunice Allen. Penny Osborne was the runner up with 33 points.
In the the Craycombe Trophy the winner was Jenny Masser with 38 points, runner up was Margaret Williams with 35 points.

All Comers Trophy

Cleary takes the Honours!

The All Comers Charity Trophy, which was originally donated by Lila Bailey, is played once a year with all money going to the Captain's Charity which this year is the Aquired Brain Injuries Trust.

The event was held in the gale force conditions of Tuesday 6th June and my word was it difficult to play with bits of trees flying in all directions, the golf balls oscillating on the Greens and the gusts blowing us off balance on the tees. Thankfully the worst of the rain had abated as 19 intrepid ladies sallied forth to do battle. Well done to Jill Cleary who came in with a 'storming' score of 38pts.

Friendly AM AM - Tuesday 30th May

32 ladies played in a Friendly AM AM, stableford, where the best two scores counted. It was a pleasant day with a slight breeze in some areas.

Well done ladies.

Huntingdon Cups - Tuesday 9th May

Twenty six ladies graced our course on a pleasant sunny day in drawn pairs for the Huntingdon Cups. Apparently some of our ladies had a memorable game for a variety of reasons. To mention but a few I understand that Marlene Billings and Angela Fletcher lost a ball up a tree on the eighth fair way, after looking for it, (in the wrong tree) a provisional ball was taken, they then retrieved the ball from the right tree, with penalty, and continued. Later in the game they took 12 shots on our notorious 16th hole, which we all know is a Par 3! However, Angela came back to redeem herself with a chip in on the 18th from under the chestnut tree to score a birdie after the cracking drive from Marlene. Dee Machin and Lesley Kewley had a high score on the front nine then the dynamics changed as they were let through and they lost their momentum on the back nine, still scoring a net 80.5, so well done ladies. What a memorable game of golf!

Congratulations to our winning Ladies - Gill Smith and Carol Yates with a net score of 78.5

Runners Up were Dee Machin and Lesley Kewley with a net 80.5

A friendly competition was also played, without incident, and the winners were Margaret Roberts and Penny Osborne.

After a photo shoot in front of the Club House, 25 ladies then continued to enjoy the beautiful weather playing a Bogey Competition.

The winner was Ruth Masters with plus 4, 2nd was Eunice Allen with plus 1 and 3rd was Jenny Masser with a level score.
and all the ladies celebrating.....
