Captain's Newsletter - 25 June 2018

Summer is in full swing now and so is the golf.....

Following on from Charity Day week it seemed a little quieter for me this week.

The weekend Ladies played round 3 of their eclectic, difficult to see who is going to be the winner but a couple more chances to better your scores over the next couple of months. It is great to see so many ladies playing at the weekends.

We played Roll the Dice on Tuesday - a sort of scramble with a difference. It was highly amusing and a scramble always gives you several chances at the par or birdie!

The midweek ladies played their monthly Stableford on Thursday. Now that summer has arrived the CSS keeps going down so not the big handicap cuts we all feel we deserve but still lovely to play in such good conditions....well done to Hazel and Julie R who won the respective divisions with 40 points each and had handicap cuts!


After Thursday's comp I was delighted to be able to present Nicola Adkins with the Handicap Cup which she won in the far distant winter! Really well done Nicola - it was a tough season for match Play!


The Friendly team had a match away at John O Gaunt. Barbara Job made her debut for the team and the greens were running very fast on the Cartagena course. Unfortunately home advantage took over and Chesfield were unable to pull out a win but a good experience for all. We are playing at Mount Pleasant this coming week so another chance to get back on the horse and score a win!

Congratulations go to Pat Ward and Kathy Morris who are going through to the Area Final of the Coronation Foursomes to be held in July and August. The Grand Final should they progress further is held at St Andrews in September. Good luck ladies.

The Aussie Spoons competition has now finished and your Vice Captain Margaret and Pauline Humphrey will be representing Chesfield in the Regional finals at Hanbury Manor in July. Again good luck ladies.

It was great to see Pauline Harrison during her European Tour! Thanks to Kathy C for hosting a great party and I hope you were able to catch up with Pauline at the club last Thursday. Hope to see you again soon Pauline, with clubs in hand!

This week is round 1 of the Club Champs. Keep your eye on HDID as your tee times will be available from Monday evening with the lowest handicappers going out first, as is traditional in this competition. There will be warm up balls available on the range that morning and the following week for Round 2. After Round 2 on Thursday 5th July the Champions will be crowned over a cream tea in the Conservatory so please try and stay afterwards that day, even if you haven’t won!!! Good luck everyone..

Jackie Reid is looking at arranging a trip to Les Miserables at Milton Keynes next year. Due to the popularity of the tickets please could you let Jackie know if you are interested by June 30th this year!

Stay hydrated this week and take your brolly for the sun! Enjoy...😎
