Captain Graham's November Update

Firstly, a big thank you to all members who were playing on Sunday and respectfully acknowledged the 2 minutes silence and to President Harry for organizing the Klaxon.

Despite the onset of the autumnal weather remember our course plays well all year and again hope that members will continue to use the course and club facilities and join in the competitions and social events that are advertised on the notice boards, by email and on the clubs website. A big thank you to Nick Isom for organizing the many competitions and keeping us informed of up and coming competitions. It was good news for everyone that Julie has arranged with Four Seasons to continue their Sunday Sandwich Deal. (Thank you Julie). Please check the notices boards in the foyer and changing rooms for dates of events and competitions and information. If you are interested in playing in either club or friendly matches please let Julie, Nick or myself know and this will be arranged.

Remember it is your club and the more events and competitions that are supported by members and their friends etc. means the club continuing to be successful and bring satisfaction to those who organize.

Thanks to our inhouse maintenance and decorating team(s) for all their continued efforts and the excellent results and continued work both on the course and in the club house. New lighting has been installed at the rear of the clubhouse and the rear walls have been jet washed and painted. A special thank you to John Cowey and Merv Brace for their excellent work.

At present as Captain I am attending several Drives-ins and Annual Dinner Dances at various clubs and it is again due to the support I receive from our President, Vice Presidents, Past Captains and of course Julie, that I can ensure that I or a member from our club can attend. Thank you all for your continued support.

Congratulations to our Green Keepers and Green Committee for the excellent condition of the course. And I again make no apology in reminding members that we must continue to play our part in keeping the course in its excellent state so may I remind members to use the designated entries and exits to tees, replace divots, repair pitch marks and tee box divots and dispose of litter in the appropriate bins, even if the divots etc. are not yours! Remember that mats are now in place on the 2nd and 3rd Tees.

We have several social events coming up so please watch out for notices and emails giving details. Please remember to book your places for the Christmas Carol lunch and add the names of any children that will be attending. Tickets are also on sale behind the bar for the New Year’s Eve Disco.

Please continue to check the notice boards and your emails so you can come and support the club’s events.

Before I list the results of the recent club competitions since the 13 October, I must correct the result for the Ladies Medal 4 - this was won on count back by Sheila Wanless from Lesley Wright
