August 30th 2015, Complex, Glendale CA: Following their first leg of US tour dates supporting Pentagram, Cincinnati, Ohio heavy rock quartet Electric Citizen visited Los Angeles for a headline gig at Complex in Glendale put together by Church Of The 8th Day in association with Thief, who brought this band to Orange County for the Psycho California Fest earlier this year. And lastly at 11 o’ clock, Electric Citizen appeared on stage to bring the evening to a spectacular close. The turnout was appreciably great for a Sunday, and the temperatures inside the venue were pleasant as the air-conditioning was more effective than usual. We have been to Krause Springs before (link) but this week we tried a slightly different approach. Their sign says they close at dusk; the woman behind the desk told me around 8pm they close the camp to all but the campers. After we had all cooled off in the springs for two hours, we headed up to the picnic area for some dinner.
Krause has a great picnic area, with lots of grills and picnic tables, all shaded by the huge cypress trees. As you can see from the photos, due to the late hour, we had the place mostly to ourselves! Then, do some fun things like take a shower, walk around or just sit down.  Careful to keep the bag below your crotch or all the pee might flow back in and… YOWSA! Me:  I had a little accident and I need you to bring me some new shorts when you come visit this afternoon. I thought I was having a stroke, probably because the night before my friend Andi told me about this blog started by some guy whose wife died 24 hours post partum from a blood clot. Upon closer inspection, however, the nurse determined that I was not, in fact, having a stroke. Luckily it only lasted for about two hours, and every time I started to feel like I was floating out of my body and freak out Nick kept reminding me that a lot of people pay good money for what I was feeling.
So I decided to just ride it out and called down to the cafeteria and had them hook me up with some Raisinettes. Ghoulie The first time your baby sleeps through the night is the single most terrifying moment of your life. Pffft, give your fellow moms more credit, I read it while consuming fig newtons and merlot! 11th May 2016 - LADIES OPEN AM-AM Thursday 5th MayIn the first of the ladies open competitions for the year, 160 ladies drawn from 33 different clubs played in teams of four and enjoyed the beautiful weather which held for the entire day. With the course in great condition and providing a perfect backdrop, the Stableford Am-Am format got underway under the watchful eye of a team of starters – Mark Bond, Chris Shaw, Tony Bailey and Pam Jackson (with Pam also doing double-duty helping out with car park duties).
Additional help on the day was provided by office staff Steve Smith and Jane Lewis, Zoe North, Ben Benoist, caterers and bar staff and, of course, the team of greenkeepers whose efforts in presenting the course in such great condition was much praised by visiting and home players alike.
Chris and Hazel expressed their gratitude to Jill Lightfoot who did a great job of receiving and processing entries whilst they were away in sunnier climes at the start of the year.
Ladies captain Lesley Watson was delighted with the sum of £424 raised for her charity. 9th May 2016 - Taskers Result Mens Lutterworth BLutterworth B team took on Chevin on a warm Sunday afternoon .

On an overcast but dry day, the course was in fine condition and all matches were played in great spirit.  The customary seniors hospitality of half-way house tea and cake was welcomed by all and wonderfully served by Ken Earp and Brian Astbury, even if one or two of the ladies were a little suspicious of what secret ingredient the cake may contain!
Now free of Mail on Sunday engagements, the ladies embark upon their Taskers campaign against Chilwell Manor with the first leg being played away on Sunday 17 April. Thank you to all who entered the Ron Mee Memorial Trophy on Wednesday, we can only apologise for the weather conditions. The early starters had the best times, for those of us following it was grim, snow on the second green, it helped me to par though! The Ron Mee Memorial Trophy will be played for on the last Wednesday of the Seniors’ Group Winter Programme each year. Since the new simulator was commissioned in the middle of January this year, along with the two refurbished indoor nets, it has been in constant use by members and some visitors, with around 120 + sessions already played! Currently 10 courses can be played, including Pebble Beach, which one visitor played recently, to practice on before competing there in spring in a Pro-Am. The club teams can now take part in open nights indoors to sharpen up their games and socialise and the club juniors already enjoy regular Sunday afternoon sessions too.
14th February 2016 - LADIES SEASON OPENS WITH EMPHATIC VICTORYCold Ashby were the visitors today for the first round of the Mail on Sunday Classic tournament where five singles matches contest the overall tie. On a chilly but bright day with the strengthening wind providing a stern test, the matches were played in great spirit with the team of Jacqui, Joy, Sue, Laura and Mary delivering a 5-0 home victory to proceed to tomorrow’s draw for the second round.


Lutterworth's Zoe North is the first women professional to compete in the County PGA overseas ProAm in Portugal. She added " I plan to play in as many events as possible this season, but also greatly enjoy teaching.
North is an ex-County girls Captain and turned pro at Kilworth Springs, before moving to Lutterworth as Assistant two years ago, where she completed her training and PGA qualification. 7th February 2016 - Ladies Classic Mail on SundayLutterworth Ladies play Cold Ashby at home in the first round of this classic event on the 14th February 2016. We understand that this may not be possible for all members and do not wish to prevent any members who need to use a trolley or personal buggy from playing, but where this action is possible it would certainly prevent damage to the course in the short term and help to protect it for the future. Club captain, Chris Wormleighton, was last to tee it up and with the experience and ability of one who has played the fairways of Lutterworth for 38 years, hit a straight shot that was measured at 208 yards. 20th November 2015 - CANINE PARTNERS PRESENTED WITH CHEQUE AT RETAIL EVENINGWith the kind permission of Leanne and Natasha, the outgoing Lady Captain Joy Birch took a few minutes at the Xmas Retail evening to make a presentation to Canine Partners, her chosen charity.
She went on to say that at the start of 2015 there were 306 canine partnerships within the UK and that a further 80 would be created in this, their 25th Anniversary year. She stressed that although she had been in the driving seat, it was the members of Lutterworth Golf Club and in particular the ladies section, who had been quick to put their hands in their pockets, supporting every fundraising activity that she had organised throughout the year and it was they who had in the main contributed to raising a magnificent £2,480. 5th November 2015 - SETTING LUTTERWORTH ALIGHTThis year’s fireworks and bonfire night held on Sunday 1 November once again put our Club in the spotlight with an estimated 1,400 people taking advantage of the wonderfully dry and mild evening to come along and enjoy the festivities. Many people commented on the compelling sight of ladies president Bubbles and Lilian Pilkington stopping traffic in the centre of the busy A426 to guide visitors safely across.  Not even large HGV lorries were a match for our intrepid pair! 2nd November 2015 - LADIES SEND-OFF FOR LEANNEWith our lovely Leanne Bayliss about to start her maternity leave, the ladies section sent her off in style with a presentation of flowers and Mothercare vouchers, the latter from generous donations from lady members who have benefited from Leanne’s care and attention in the pro shop and the ladies boutique. While Leanne puts her feet up to await the new arrival, the boutique will be in the very capable hands of Tash who will also cover for Leanne in the pro shop. 27th October 2015 - MIXED SEASON ENDS ON HIGH NOTEOn a beautiful autumn day, a field of 32 set out in teams of 4 to celebrate another hugely successful season, playing Greensomes with aggregate Stableford scoring to ensure all players remained involved.
26th October 2015 - LUTTERWORTH SANTA FUN RUN LINK TO LADY CAPTAIN'S CHARITYNominated as one of the charities for the 2015 November fun run is Canine Partners, chosen charity of ladies captain, Joy Birch. If you are already planning to do the run and have not yet chosen your charity, Joy would be delighted if you would consider selecting Canine Partners as your nominated recipient for any sponsorship money. As a reminder, Canine Partners assist people with disabilities to enjoy a greater independence and a better quality of life and, where possible, to help them into education and employment, through the provision of specially trained dogs for the disabled, whose well-being is a key consideration. Throughout Joy’s year we have been treated to demonstrations and appearances from golden retriever, May, who is helping dog to Kate Cross who suffers from Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) an hereditary condition which has resulted in Kate having limited mobility and becoming a wheelchair user.
So if ever you were in doubt about how talented and dedicated these dogs are and what a worthwhile cause Joy had selected, this story serves well as a testament. 13th October 2015 - LADY CAPTAIN'S FINAL FLINGAutumn sunshine and a sometimes biting wind greeted the 13 teams of three ladies who took part in the Lady Captain’s final fling on Tuesday 13 October. Speaking on behalf of the winning team, Lesley thanked the lady captain for staging her final fling and providing a lovely prize table.
12th October 2015 - BAXTER TROPHYThe weather could not have been better for this very prestigious county competition, this year held at Willesley Park Golf Club. Unfortunately we were only able to field one team, Pete Brough and Sue Fletcher as our other entry had to be withdrawn after Andrew Skerratt took ill the night before and we were unable to find a replacement to play with Lady Captain Joy Birch at such late notice.
The Lady Captain would like to thank Sue and Peter for representing the Club, adding that she had had a lovely day watching them play. 29th September 2015 - LADIES ANNUAL 4-WAY TROPHYRugby were the hosts on Monday 28 September for the annual playing of the 4-Way Trophy involving Rugby, Lutterworth, Delapre Park and Kilworth Springs.

Thank you to the team on the day of Jules Barker, Alison Boyes, Liz Toney, Helen Dowling, Margaret Lightowler, Betty Sheppard, Liz Paris and Rita Ogden – and to the total of 26 ladies who have played in fixtures this season. All the matches were really tight with 3 out of the 5 going to the 18th but although both teams were striving for a win, everyone enjoyed the good spirit in which the matches were played. 13th September 2015 - HESELTINE CUPS - Sunday 13th SeptemberWith the season drawing to a close, the final mixed competition attracted a field of 10 pairs. The final match fixture of the year is another home tie against Glen Gorse to be played on Sunday 4 October. 7th September 2015 - LADIES FRIENDLY MATCH AGAINST GLEN GORSEIn the absence of Bridget Jenkins, our usual Captain for this fixture, the Ladies of Lutterworth went out to battle on her behalf.

To Lutterworth’s credit, both teams slowly narrowed the gap to 3 and 2 holes down but Melton were never in danger of being caught. With a 3pm tee-time for the first match, the wind had died a little and the players enjoyed the best of the day’s weather on a course that was in good condition and playing well. After the post-match meal, team captain Lesley was full of praise for the Lutterworth ladies who played and fought so hard and also congratulated Market Harborough on their victory and the overall condition of the course.
30th July 2015 - CHARITY CHEQUE PRESENTATION TO LEICESTER HOSPITALSFollowing the loss earlier this year to cancer of two senior members, Mike Ball and Ian Champion, the annual charity day organised by seniors captain Geoff Cooksey was held on 13 May to raise funds in memory of both gents.


A total of £1,100 including personal donations from Lutterworth Golf Club members was raised, destined for use by University Hospitals Leicester for research into cancer treatments. Accompanying Geoff as part of the Lutterworth Golf Club presentation team on 28 July at Leicester Royal Infirmary was club captain Ben Benoist, ladies captain Joy Birch and special guest, Mrs Joy Ball. Accepting the cheque on behalf of the University of Leicester Department of Cancer Studies was Sarah Porter (clinic co-ordinator for Professor Will Steward) along with research student, Dr Joey Wood.
Pictured (left to right) are Dr Joey Wood, Joy Birch, Mrs Joy Ball, Sarah Porter, Geoff Cooksey and Ben Benoist. 27th July 2015 - WELCOME WIN FOR LADIES IN HANDICAP LEAGUEFriday 24 July saw the three pairings in the handicap league take to the course for a home tie against Scraptoft with the encouragement of team captain and ladies vice-captain, Lesley Watson, ringing in their ears.
With one match halved and one loss so far, Lesley was keen to see a victory and hoped that the steady rain would not put a damper on proceedings. Armed with gifts of lip balm, pen and a chocolate bar from Joy, all that was left to do was contest the prizes – 1st to 3rd in the main competition with nearest the line on the 7th and nearest the pin in two on the 16th for everyone, plus nearest the pin competitions on the 4th and 15th for silver and bronze division players respectively.
The show also included support act Red Wizard from San Diego and local opener Sisters Ov The Blackmoon for an out-and-out stoner rock lineup that promised to treat the LA underground faithful to a rifftastic avalanche of heavy music. During this set, the confines of Complex resonated with heavy riffs and crushing rhythms aplenty, and these instrumental layers were fronted by incisive female vocals that carried the occult vibe to perfection.
There was clearly a sense of primal rawness in Red Wizard’s musicianship and performance that captured this audience straightaway, as the entire crowd was seen head-banging in unison for large portions of the set.
They opened for Wolfmother at the House Of Blues Sunset Strip in the summer of 2014 and succeeded in making an impact, but witnessing them here as a headline act on this small stage in this amazingly intimate venue was a completely different world in comparison, and this was undoubtedly the real Electric Citizen experience. I hate to disclose details involving my daughter’s private parts but she had a little, um, dimple above her, um, butt. Chevin included 3 catergory 1 golfers in their line up, we had Dr Lyn Griffiths in shorts. Following on, the Rugby mixed captain offered her congratulations to Lutterworth on the win, the excellent hospitality, wonderful meal and fabulous course.
Nearest the pin prizes were presented to Sue Young (Beedles Lake) and Liz Benoist (Lutterworth), whose tee shot hit the pin! Unfortunately it became a match of two seasons as the second half was played under darkening skies. Our winners, Lady Captain Lesley Watson and Steve Hardy, however played exceptionally well to score 37 points and for their efforts were presented with their vouchers and Easter eggs  by Lady Vice Captain Rita Ogden, who thanked everyone for taking part.
One of my fourball and I managed to get to the 6th before the driving snow and drifting put an end to our hopes of winning. I have had word from his family who donated the trophy in 2015; they were delighted with the support given to his Memorial Match. Allick Elliott has also donated a trophy, previously played for at the Mike Ball Skegness trip, this has now been renamed the Memorial Cup, it will be played for on the first Wednesday of the Seniors’ Group Winter Programme each year. It’s already helping members to understand much more about their swings and to make faster progress.
Trolleys and personal ride on buggies have the potential to cause damage to the course in its current condition. Our winners were Janet and George Millen, who took away a sleeve of golf balls and Liz Paris who won a bottle of wine for nearest the pin on the 17th. Quite fittingly, this event was on a Sunday, because the church of riff worship was certainly in session. Sisters Ov The Blackmoon are in their infant stages as a band and have largely performed in the heart of Los Angeles and Hollywood, but this felt more like the right setting for them, as this was the heaviest and loudest they’ve ever sounded on stage, and song by song, they turned more first-timers into fans. Red Wizard have made the short northward drive from their hometown to Los Angeles on quite a few occasions in the five years of their existence thus far, but this was somehow Metal Assault’s first time experiencing this band live, and henceforth, this band will always be on the radar. That said, it makes perfect sense to be opening for Pentagram on their current touring run because singer Laura Dolan portrayed an on-stage personality that resembles a Robert Plant with the vocal stylings and facial expressions of a Bobby Liebling. Bring a rolling cooler and leave it at the picnic area; just carry the necessities (drinks and tubes) down to the spring area! As they say, actions speak louder than words and the sight of the Rugby captain taking photographs of the course from the patio reinforced everything she had stated. Congratulations go to three of the 10.40 tee time competitors who made it all the way to the 18th.
Bacon butties and coffee were consumed before tee off, where all the par 3's had nearest the pin prizes, longest drive was on the 7th and nearest the pin in 2 on the 18th. Sisters Ov The Blackmoon are poised for their first ever tour in the form of a short US West Coast run in September, and are sure to expand their fan-base further. Along with bands such as Monolith and The Great Electric Quest, these dudes are showing that the San Diego heavy music scene is alive and well. We hope you, the over 60’s, will support these matches and join in the enjoyment which is what all our absent friends would have wanted. Congratulations to the Winners from Forest Hill, Steve Hathaway and John Upson with 44 points. The best LA bands are those that sound nothing like the typical LA bands, and with their undeniably excellent salute to classic stoner doom, Sisters Ov The Blackmoon find themselves in that category as well.
Ohio is bristling with musical creativity, and this Cincinnati band is making a positive contribution to the state’s reputaion. The match was played in a great spirit and the course received many compliments from the opposition. We appreciate all the positive comments made from the visitors on the day and our own members on the condition of the course and on the way the day had been organised.
