Congratulations to Robert Grover on winning the Coronation Cup last weekend with a 36 hole medal score of 138 net. Omitted from last week’s issue was the winner of the Thursday Beer roll up, being Graham Evans but I think the field was rather limited. Who won the guess the beer prizes ? perhaps Debbie will fill us in soon. This week’s roll up winner was Sean Nugent and the winner of the club draw was a D F number 147 but unfortunately he was not at the Club to collect his £425 prize which now rolls on to next Thursday at £450.
Sunday the gentlemen hosted the ladies to a greensomes competition which was very closely contested with the scores only separated on the last three holes. Janet Connor and Mark Stevens were pipped at the post by Irene Dickinson and Myself with 40 points. Thank you to everyone who took part in a most enjoyable afternoon, arranged by my vice captain David Dickinson who did a splendid job on the day. It’s all looking good for next year!
I have agreed with the President that winners of Presidents day on the 9th of September will have to attend the prize presentation in order to receive their prize which will take place at 6.45pm. Only in exceptional circumstances will this be waived and the definition of exceptional will be decided by the President. These prizes are paid for personally by the President and failure to collect your prize will result in the money being paid to the Captain’s Charity. The Club will endeavour to contact winners but if you know you have a chance then check with the pro shop late that afternoon.
President Night posters are now on the Web site and on the Club notice boards please check these out and book your places as soon as possible as tickets are limited. A fine meal and evening entertainment for a very reasonable £32 per head, so tickets are bound to sell fast.
Bank Holiday Monday 28th August Texas Scramble and Wilson Putting Vase posters are also on the notice board. This is open to all members and guests as we urgently need to boost the numbers to make it viable, so why not invite some friend’s along to what is a fun Golfing format.
That’s about it for this week, apologies if I have missed anything or spelt any names incorrectly. (I blame the teachers). See you all over the weekend.
Ps- has anybody seen or got my Splash sponsorship form?
