Captain's Newsletter - 14 May 2018

A week of great weather followed by slightly less than great weather this week, but nonetheless good for golf!

Congratulations go to the Mens Section who raised £6500 for Des's charity, The On Course Foundation. Great result guys...

Also over Bank Holiday weekend Nikki Brooke took top spot in the Ladies Weekend Medal with a nett 72, followed by Linda Brown and Julie P. Well done to all the weekend players. Yesterday we played for the Ken Bird Trophy v the Men, the Seniors and the Juniors. Results next week....!

Our Spring Meeting held on Thursday was great fun and Marica, Maggie, Jacqui H and Jill came out the winners in the Team Alliance event. This was followed by a lovely lunch and presentation of Cups, Trophies and Monthly medal and Stableford winners. The raffle raised around £200 for the Air Ambulance, so a big thanks to all who gave so generously and to our volunteers, staff and Management who helped to make it a memorable day.

Spring Meeting Winners

The next few weeks see our summer programme of events start to kick in and there is lots of golf to be played. This Thursday we are playing for the Price Vase and this is followed by the Ping Pairs on 24th May. These events and the Coronation Foursomes at the end of May are all on sign up on How did I do. For anyone not familiar with the process the competitions appear on the system 3 weeks before the playing date so sort your diaries and sign up early! If you have any problems please contact a member of the Committee.

Whilst on the subject of diaries there is a change of date for the Crown Champion of Champions. This is the final for all the club champions within the Crown Group and will be held on Sunday 9th Sept at Oak Park
The Friendly Team featuring 5 of our 7 day members played a match v Colmworth at home. It was the first time we had played Colmworth in this fixture and 4 of our Ladies were making their debuts for the Friendly Team, Nikki Brooke, Clare Breen, Jacqui Harbor and Annette Gillette. Well done ladies, sorry you didn’t get the win but hope you all enjoyed the game and are ready to play again!

As hopefully you are all aware my Captains Charity Day in aid of Essex and Herts Air Ambulance will be held on Thursday June 14th. This will be a pairs better ball competition and is open to members and guests, so please invite your golfing friends! The golf will be followed by a 2 course lunch and prize presentation. The initial sign up sheet will be up next week so find your partners and keep your eyes on the board for further info. There will be various fundraising stalls, raffles and other fun things to spend your money on on the day. If you are prepared to sponsor a hole I will also put a sheet up for that! As some of you will know we are also hoping that one of the helicopters will be landing on the golf range that day. We will be looking for volunteers to help us on the day so please keep your eyes on the board.

Enjoy the week ahead and Happy golfing.🏌️‍♀️🏌️‍♀️
