The golf section will be able to extend a limited number of invitations to players who are not members at Villarceaux. These invitations will be given on a priority basis to those who may be interested in joining the section and / or Villarceaux. To the extent that invitations are still available they will offered on a first come, first serve basis to section members. Recipients of an invitation will have no green fee to pay on the day, but will be asked to contribute 25€ to golf section funds to help the section’s finances.
Please reply to Simon by next Wednesday, October 7th; after that you will have to sign up directly with the Villarceaux secretariat.
The big Winner of the Day was none other than our very own Alison Lavelle. Alison and Mary-Beth Kemp, both had 39 points, achieving the two best net scores. Alison won the Autumn Vase on a count back against Mary Beth, who has only very recently joined the Section - and of course got 1st prize in the Ladies' 2nd Series!
The Autumn Vase is essentially a Net Stableford Competition, but there are some 'Brut' prizes. Since Roland Bouloux and Alan Peacock had equal scores in both the Brut and the Net of the Men's 1st Series, and since a player can only have one prize, was it Roland who got the Brut and Alan the Net, or vice versa?
Our only other 'Podium' finish was by the other half of Team Peacock, Julie, who came 3rd in the Ladies' 1st Series with 35 points.
