We're Back !!
It was wonderful to see so many people out on the course this past Monday 29th March, our first day back.
The course is in excellent condition for this time of year and the greens are immaculate.
A very big thank you to Graham Careford & his team of greens keepers for all that they have been doing, ready for our return.
It was great that so many people chose to use their first round back as an opportunity to make a donation to my chosen Charity, Marie Curie.
We managed to boost our funds raised significantly.
The new practice nets have been getting a thorough workout and most everyone I spoke to , thought they were an excellent addition to the Clubs facilities.
It was also great to see the new hut on the 13th open for some much needed refreshments and our group took full advantage of this. Possibly a little too much in my case, which leads me to my next point.
When I was getting ready for golf , early on Monday morning, I found that most of my golf clothes seem to have shrunk, not so much in the length. My wife assured me it was nothing to do with our washing machine. I spoke with our Pro Danny Hill about this. After great discussion, we believe we have come up with the answer. Covid Shrinkage. We think it could be that if you've had the vaccine, the materials used in the clothing, react to your body and start to shrink the clothes. They were all much looser before lockdown.
Golf scientists ( Danny Hill & myself) believe the best way to beat Covid Shrinkage, is regular exercise ( golf) and eating less. This can reverse the reaction & your clothing will expand, back to its original size. Failing that, Danny has larger sizes available.
The draws have now been made for all the knockout competitions. You can find the draw & dates to be played by on the IG website & App.
