So I've been in the hot seat for only a few days, and my first order of business is one of congratulations. Yes, the weather may have beaten us last weekend and no, there wasn't any golf, this meant that the Luther Smith competition played at Enfield Golf Club on the 26th September was reduced to a single round.
Meaning the competition was won by Bush Hill Parks very own Gary Hampshire with a net score 67. Well done Gary, a superb result in some pretty difficult conditions. Also a special mention should go to Ray Ripsher, Graham Dickens & Se Banim who all had very credible scores, putting themselves into contention ready for the home leg back at BHP, but sadly it wasn't meant to be as storm Alex turned up, flooded the course & shut it for the whole weekends golf.
Only 1 golf shot was played last weekend and I would just like to say a massive thank you to all of you, who supported me in the slightly odd ritual of hitting a ball the wrong way down the 18th fairway, " The Captains Drive In. " Thank you to all who took part in trying to guess the distance of the drive and helped raise a significant amount for the Charity I'm supporting this year, Marie Curie.
As many of you are aware, the Captains Driver Texas Scramble competition had to be cancelled last Sunday 4th October but it has now been RESCHEDULED for Sunday 1st November. 8.30 a.m. Shotgun Start (weather permitting). If you had booked previously, you WILL NEED to re-book on the IG app or in the pro shop. The competition is open now, so book early to avoid disappointment.
This coming weekend we have the first week of the Winter League and on Sunday the New Members Trophy open to all golf members who have joined in the past 12 months. If you haven't yet signed up for either of these events, there is still time, just.
And finally our top golf Pro Danny Hill and I are looking to play as many Captain & Pro challenges as possible this year. Any pair who would like to challenge us , please speak to myself or Danny in the Pro shop. Danny does have a handicap this year.... it's me... unless he's got those noise cancelling headphones.
A few dates for your social diary:
Quiz Night - Monday 13th October
The return of our popular Fish Night - Wednesday 15th October
Friday Fish & Chip Night - Every Friday
Sunday Lunch - Now served in the upstairs restaurant every week
That's all & most definitely enough from me.
