The ladies section at Kendal Golf Club goes from strength to strength with new Lady Captain Eileen Slader and Lady Vice Captain Maggie Donald taking office at the Ladies AGM.
They follow Lady Captain Julie North who had a tremendous year as Lady Captain.
Julie’s year started with a win in the Westmorland and North West Lancs Shield held at Windermere Golf Club, where the Kendal Ladies won the Gross shield by a margin of 29 strokes. Our junior girls Caitlin Whitehead and Dana Billington were both in the team with Caitlin recording the best gross score of the day, at 2 under par.
A few weeks later in June the Westmorland Bronze Shield was held at Windermere Golf Club, and again the Kendal Ladies won. Lady Vice Captain at the time Eileen Slader had the best Nett score of the day with an excellent 62. The next event was the 1 day team trophy at Silloth on Sollway Golf Club with Youngster Dana Billington from Kendal winning the best Nett score on the day.
In September the wins kept coming with the 3 counties Bronze Interclub (Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire) being held at Kendal, with 10 teams playing. The Kendal team won the team shield and Val Woodcock from Kendal won the individual cup for the best Nett score on the day.
To finish the year off in style the Silver Scratch team had a great year winning their last match against Brampton ladies to win their league. Rosie Waller was presented with the Moulie Moore Trophy for the best individual points score (54) gained in all the matches played in that league.
A special part of Julies year was working with County Vets Captain Rosie Waller and County Vets President Sue Howell who are also both members at Kendal Golf Club. Over 3 days in April Kendal ladies hosted the County VETS Championship which saw Janette McWhirter from Appleby win the VETS Championship. The County VETS also held all 3 of their home matches at Kendal Golf Club where they played against Lancashire, Cheshire and Northumberland.
Julies Says that she “thoroughly enjoyed her year as Lady Captain and is so proud of all the ladies remarkable achievements at Kendal Golf Club this year”.
