Ladies Corner at Marbella Golf CC

A New Year….. new Ladies!

The first Ladies end of month competition took place on Friday, January 27th. We chose Individual Stableford format with ‘Jack to Ace’ extra points. 15 ladies signed up to play and that included members, guests and some of Abbey Gittings Academy Ladies. It was closely fought, with 3 ladies all scoring 42 points! The winner was Eliis Naro, from The Academy…….what a fantastic performance. It was Eliis’s first ever Birdie!

We also introduced ‘Birdie Juice’ where each lady brings a hip flask of their favorite drink and if they get a ‘Birdie’, they share a tot with each person on their group. On this day, Birdie’s were few and far between, so there’s plenty left in the flasks for next time, which will be 24th February! If you want to take part contact our Caddy Master on 952830500. The format will be pairs Texas Scramble.

Our Ladies Interclub team have had 2 out of 3 matches cancelled because of bad weather but we did manage to play our match v El Chaparral, away. Unfortunately, we lost, but our return match on April 14th will be exciting, as we’ll need to win each pairing to retain the cup. We have 2 upcoming matches, home and away, against Miraflores, in March, so wish us luck.

It’s a very exciting time for the ladies, as we have a group of new members, who are joining our interclub squad: Cristina Ravagnan, Sarah Galvin, Susan Sweeney and Melanie Scholz. Welcome!
