What can I say about Judy Gowing’s amazing round last Tuesday? Blowing a hooley and calm as you like Judy pops up with a net 72. I know nearly everyone else will have been gnashing their teeth – well done Judy.
1st Judy Gowing 72
2nd Catherine Cooper 78
3rd Lorna Robey 79
1st Claire Martin 77
2nd Caroline Dewar 81
3rd Anna Rowland-Clark 82
Well done to everyone the above as conditions were not easy.
World Handicap System (WHS)
If you have any questions about the new WHS system, please speak to Tristan or Louis. Golfers are recommended to hand in as many cards as they can to count towards the average of their best eight scores out of 20. If you do not have 20 cards in your handicap record, please see the table below to see how many of your best scores are taken:
Number of Scores in Handicap Record

|3 Scores||Best Score minus two strokes|
|4 Scores||Best Score minus one stroke|
|5 Scores||Best Score|
|6 Scores||Average of best two scores minus one stroke|
|7 or 8 Scores||Average of best two scores|
|9, 10 or 11 Scores||Average of best three scores|
|12, 13 or 14 Scores||Average of best 4 scores|
|15 or 16 Scores||Average of best 5 scores|
|17 or 18 Scores||Average of best 6 scores|

Saying ‘goodbye’ to Pearson Captain
Tricia Morgan has given up her extremely able Captaincy of the Pearson team in preparation for taking over the Captaincy in October. A huge thank you to Tricia for all her hard work and dedication. We are very sorry to lose you, especially as the last two competitions were cancelled even after we managed to win our group stage for the first time in a few years in 2020! Liz Collins will be taking over for the 2021/22 season. Several the Pearson Squad gathered to send Tricia off in style.
There are still spaces for the Spring Meeting on Tuesday 18th May.
The sign up opens on 18th May at 07:00.
Lady Captain’s Day
Sign up for the Lady Captain’s Day has been delayed by one week and will open at 07:00 on the 29th June.
