Christine Langford has been sharing in our Ladies 125 Anniversary celebrations at Royal Jersey this week with great success. Christine, who is now Golf Professional and Director of Golf at Thorpeness Golf Club, was a founder member of the Ladies European Tour and last played at the the Royal Jersey when the Club hosted three WPGA Jersey Opens in the mid-1980's. (She along with Club Manager, Darren Attwood and former Head Greenkeeper David Crawford were able to share their memories of those halcyon days!)

Christine held four excellent clinics during the week and gave a highly entertaining speech at an evening dinner at the Club.

To round the week off Carol Gibbs (nee Le Feuvre), former Curtis Cup player and multiple Island Championship winner, played with Christine against the 'new generation' of Olivia Jordan-Higgins and Flora Keites in a 13 hole exhibition match. This was another well supported event with many members walking round the course watching Olivia and Flora playing from the yellow tees and Carol and Christine from the reds.

Young member Annabelle Lucas-Villar had the honour of caddying for Christine. Christine and Carol ran out winners in a very close and entertaining contest. The merits of having a great short game were on frequent display.

It was particularly pleasing that Olivia made a special trip 'home' from the USA, where she now combines her time playing on the Symetra Tour with coaching duties for a Ladies College golf team, to support our celebrations.
