Captain's Newsletter - 7 May 2018

At last it feels a bit more like Spring and the balls are starting to fly and roll a bit further. In spite of everything the course is looking and playing really well. Thanks again to Andy and his team for getting us through.


Spring Meeting is on Thursday this week - the tee times are posted on the board. Please ensure you have settled up with Pat via the usual methods. £18 golfers. £16 lunch only. There will be presentations after lunch and a £1 raffle on the day in aid of the Air Ambulance.

The Pearson team had a fantastic win this week, thrashing Sandy Lodge 6-1. Its been a really challenging season but Megan has led the squad with a smile and all the games have been played with spirit and determination. In most cases the refreshments have been great too...well done everyone who represented Chesfield through the horrible elongated winter season.

The Scratch team went to West Herts last Sunday - it was freezing! Unfortunately we were beaten 4-1 but it is a lovely course and a great bunch of ladies. Next match is May 20th v Berkhamsted at home.

Big mention here for the winners of the Adult Par 3 comp in April were Jane Sparkes and Pam Blake - well done ladies...handicap cuts on the way...?

The Ken Bird Trophy match takes place on Sunday 13th May. In case you weren't aware this is a team match - each 4 ball team consisting of a member from each of the sections. Good luck to the following who will be representing the ladies - Pat, Sarah, Jacqui H, Lin, Caroline K and Annabel.

If you have any friends from other clubs who would like to play at Charity Day on June 14th then please invite them. It will be a pairs competition on the day with lunch afterwards and the usual fund raising stalls/raffles etc. I have a sheet with all the details for visitors so let me know if you need it.

Amanda Macknight has very kindly agreed to make up some lovely hampers for the Charity Day Hamper Raffle. The idea is to theme them, golf, gardens, food/drink, nice smellies... If you are able to donate a small item for any of these hampers then I will put a box in the changing room next week.

Our next 2 events are the Price Vase on May 17th (rearranged from March) and the Ping Pairs on May 24th. Both of these are on HDID for sign up now.

Also don't forget you can still play another round in the Aussie Spoons competition. There are a few ladies who wish to play another round and are looking for a different partner. Please contact Kathy Morris and she will sort out the pairings (kmm53@btinternet.com)

The summer knockouts have now started. Commiserations to those who had to play the prelim round and didn't make it through. Good luck to everyone else.
Have a great week, enjoy the weather and happy golfing...☀️
