Amazing Grace gets her first Hole in 1

Grace's Hole in 1

A massive congratulations to Grace Canning one of our Junior members on getting her 1st Hole in 1 on the 15th hole yesterday playing with her Father Ben and a family friend.

After her Father Ben hit a shot to a very respectable 5ft Grace stepped up with a Pitching Wedge and showed them how to do it.

However they did not know until they walked up to the green and there was a ball resting in the hole.

This caps off a great year for Grace who has come down from 54 Handicap to 31 this year and what a way to finish with the perfect golf shot.

Congratulations from everyone at Donnington Grove, what a great year!!!

Ladies Christmas 9 hole fun comp

Please the results from Thursday below

I think from the number of emails I have had over the last 24 hours that you all enjoyed yesterday’s Christmas golf comp.
The weather was without a doubt the best of the week, with blue skies and the sun shining, the rain stayed away all day.
The festive spirit was abundant if the number of Christmas Jumpers that were being worn, were anything to go by, along with flashing lights and jingling bells a Mrs Claus and a Jolly Elf. Well done to Kim for keeping those white leggings white all the way round, my trousers were muddier, and I didn’t even play.

Thank you all for your generosity to the charity, just on the 1st tee we raised £81.75 and I know that many of you donated at the refreshment stop too, unfortunately this box already had some donations in it so we cannot say exactly how much was raised.

I would like to say thank you to Tom for providing some lovely goodies that went down extremely well and to my hubby for serving you all with mulled wine and doing his usual David Bailey impersonation.

Now to the game, I will blame the anticipation of mulled wine and treats for a few of you forgetting that both scores counted on the par 3’s, but this really did make an interesting result.

With one outright winner and 3 groups tied for 2nd it went to countback and more countback and was finally decided that whoever scored the most on the par 3’s would take 2nd.

Well done all of you and here are the results

Nearest the Pin on 5th goes to Jan King
Nearest the Pin on 7th goes to Fay Unsworth

Best Dressed goes to our Jolly Elf Jules Culley

1st Place winning a bottle of Lanson Blush Champagne goes to Sarah Fowler & Ella Bailey

2nd Place winning a bottle of Monopole Heidsieck Champagne goes to Julie Myall & Sarah Deal

3rd Place winning a bottle of Freixenet Rose Fizz goes to Lorraine Storey & Dorothy Hawker

I will leave your prizes in the pro shop for you to collect.

Thank you all again for joining in the fun, it was so nice to be able to finally have a Ladies event, not quite how it is normally done but then this year really has been far from normal.

Merry Christmas to you, your families and loved ones, enjoy the festivities and most of all stay safe.

With Love

Ladies xmas lunch 2019

The Ladies Section enjoyed their Christmas get together on
Monday. Dressed in their Christmas jumpers, 36 members came together to play in a 9 hole Christmas “Waltz” Competition, followed by lunch in the Cloudy room.

My thanks to Kat, Simon and Jo for all their organisation; the tables were beautifully decorated and the food was delicious.

This year, the “Secret Santa” gift was a voluntary cash contribution to the charity.  The Ladies were very generous and £325 was raised for the Rosemary Appeal.

My thanks to Santa, the Elf, Rudolph and the Christmas Fairy who took time out of their official duties to dispense mulled wine and mince pies to the players on the course.

High Silver League Winners 2019

Undefeated Donnington Grove Ladies Team were rewarded with the title High Silver League Winners 2019 at a presentation lunch held at Basingstoke GC on Thursday.

This was a truly fantastic team effort showing off the depth of talent at the club. Led by Captain Fay Unsworth, the team did not lose a match in the keenly contested annual competition which is played over the Spring and Autumn months against teams from Newbury and Crookham, Donnington Valley, Basingstoke, Sandford Springs, Marlborough and Mapeldurham golf clubs.

The nature of the competition meant that the team could not relax until the final putt in the final match was holed, so concentration and nerves of steel were the order of the day to ensure DG came top of the leader board.

Team:- Fay Unsworth (Captain), Kim Richardson, Gill Lane, Julie Myall, Katherine Hartwell, Jan King, Shey Walder, Maria Tillett, Jules Culley, Lorraine Storey, Anne-Marie Gane

My thanks, as always, to the DG team who always play with great spirit and enthusiasm - Fay, Gill, Kim, Ann L, Deb, Sue F, Julie and Shelagh.
