It seems to have been a very long cold and wet winter, but the spring and sunshine that has finally come through have certainly helped us forget all about that!Thursday 17th May we welcomed the Staffordshire Vets to play at Kedleston Park Golf Club with blue skies and full sunshine. 16 ladies in each team played off scratch in this our opening match of the season. The camaraderie between old friends meeting each other again was lovely to see and
hear.

The course looked beautiful from the clubhouse and we were all keen to get started. Maggie Wylde, Past President and member of Kedleston kindly did us the honour of as our starter for this match. Maggie along with Christine Davies, Staffs Match Captain was on hand as players came in. Collecting the results, it must have been very exciting as the matches went to and fro, the first four games two apiece and then the balance slipped to Derbyshire then back to Staffs and then up again to Derbyshire. The last match coming in holding the balance which would be either a win overall to Derbyshire or a halved match with Staffs! A much better result than the previous year at Trentham
which had nearly every game going all the way to the 18th with a substantial overall loss. Our halved result against Staffordshire was a pleasant surprise for both teams!

We were very well looked after by Michelle and the catering team with an array of pastries, egg/bacon cobs and plenty of drinks before play and the post-match meal was delicious.Our thanks to Kedleston for hosting this match with everyone there being a credit to the club.

The green staff should be very proud of the course as it indeed did look magnificent.

Thank you to everyone who was available for this match, it was a great result to have so many ladies
from which to choose the team.
