Christmas time - a time to bring good cheer to everyone!
It's busy busy busy as we get ready to celebrate, at home and at our golf clubs, in fact anywhere we gather with our friends and family. If you've got a golfing wish list, we hope it comes good on the day, or maybe you've tucked away a particular parcel for someone you love.
We hope all the new balls fly long and far and, of course, go straight down the middle. Maybe there's a rain jacket that's been on the list for ages or even a driver. Well, we can all dream!
We wish everyone a happy festive season and good luck for health, happiness and extra-specially, a fine golfing year in 2019.
Please make a New Year's resolution to let us know the good golfing news and the goofy bits, too!



 A few highlights of 2018:

County Champion:  Alice Barlow (Hintlesham) won the Championship trophy for the third year in a row.   She has had a stellar year again and recently took over as Junior Organiser.

County Strokeplay Champion:  Vanessa Bell (Ipswich).   She maintained her usual high standard and, having taken the Woodbridge Bowl for Strokeplay, was runner up in the Matchplay event, too.

Senior Champion:  Vicki Hunt (Ipswich) topped the list for the first time.

Seniors Jubilee Shield:  the ladies of Diss  have had a very successful year.   Besides the Shield, they also won the Stearn Trophy whilst their players, Sarah Gotts and Kerry Enever, picked up the Coronation Foursomes silverware.

County Match Week:  Norfolk took the available spot for the English County Championship Finals but Suffolk came second, beating Cambs & Hunts on countback of games won.

Junior Match Week:  Suffolk's young team gained some valuable experience.   It was tough but hugely enjoyable for the juniors and for the people who went with them.

Ipswich won the Weston Trophy, Bury St Edmunds won the Plate and Thorpeness won the Bowl.

Ipswich also won the Cranworth Trophy.

The Haskell Trophy went to Felixstowe Ferry.

Personal moments:  Vicki Inglis took on the Vice-Captaincy.  Lottie Whyman won the prestigious Astor Salver.

There was lots more besides and much of it will get a mention at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday, 12th January 2019, 10.30 in the Kesgrave Memorial Hall.  Please come!
