MANY well-wishers attended Monmouthshire Golf Club Captain Brian Butt’s Captain’s Day to watch his drive-in, followed by a mixed foursome competition, won by Phil Edwards and Beryl Davies.

The morning competition was won by A and C Phillips with an impressive 44 points, and the junior competition was won by India Lesbirel.

Everyone at the club wish Brian all the best in his new position.

Both Ladies league teams were in action this month with the firsts playing Radyr at home.

Having lost their away leg they were very keen for revenge and won in good style, 4 -1.

Their form continued as they beat Newport away, also 4-1.

The team played in the Welsh Team Championships which were held in Langland Bay at the end of June.

Having lost the first round to Conwy they then took on Pennard in the Plate competition. This was an exciting match with Caroline Cole losing her game on the 19th hole.

The seconds have had a very busy month – they halved their match at the Glamorganshire and then played Celtic Manor at home. Although the result was a loss, three-and-a-half to one-and-a -half, each game went to the 18th hole.

Next came Llanishen away – a disappointing 5-0 defeat but they regrouped and played Morlais Castle away and won three-and-a-half to one-and-a-half.

The latest opponent was Whitchurch which produced another excellent 4-1 win for the Monmouthshire.

Sian Gwilliam and Annie Davies represented the MGC in the final of the Australian Spoons and are now through to the Welsh finals.

The next item in the social calendar is the Hog Roast on July 21 – this is always a great night with entertainment this year being provided by Jeff Hooper. Tickets are still available from the bar at a cost of £15 each.
