Captain's Newsletter - 6 Aug 2018

Where is the time going, another brilliant week of summer and some great times with good friends


The Away Day on Thursday was a fantastic day and I am so grateful to everyone who came and played in very hot conditions. The Bedford Club was an excellent choice and they looked after us all very well. Although it was hot there were some good scores and Helen and Nikki came out tops with Jackie and myself the runners up. We played for the Kelland Pairs Trophy, and although Marica was unable to be with us to present her trophy, it was awarded in her absence with some beautiful engraved keepsake glasses. A big thank you again to Margaret and all who contributed to the day, making it another memorable event in my Captains Year.



Earlier in the week we played the 1st round (of 4) of the Summer Eclectic. Plenty of time to improve on your first round. Please remember that when you are playing your first round (whether it was last week or this coming week) you must play it as a strokeplay game and putt out on every hole. Once you have completed that first round then you are trying to better your scores each week so can pick up in the next rounds if you can't make a lower score – hope that makes sense!

Congratulations to Pam Blake who won the Adult Par 3 competition in July. This is the competition run by Jo Oliver on the Lannocks Course and is a stern test for all. Well done Pam and I understand they docked you 2 shots on your handicap!!!

Hot off the press, the Weekend Ladies played a medal on Saturday. Special congratulations to Lin who shot a nett 61 and had a handicap cut of 4 shots, to Julie Price who shot a nett 66 and is down to 12. I believe that Nikki and Megan also got a cut although not as big as they might have wanted, as the CSS came down again! Well done to you all.

Wednesday this week brings the hard fought Palmer Cup match between the Ladies and the Senior Men. Last year this match had to be postponed in August because it was too wet but the Senior men won the trophy which means that this year they are playing off the White tees!

Captain's Day will be on Saturday September 15th. The sign upsheet will be up on the board soon. It will be a fun day with a dinner and entertainment in the evening. Please bring your non golfing partners/ friends for dinner in the evening. If you need more info at this stage please ask Margaret or myself but put the date in your diaries.

Our Autumn Meeting will be held on Thursday September 20th. This competition will not be on HDID, so look out for the sign up sheet in the locker room later in the month. There will be lunch afterwards.

Just had to include this photo of your captain sporting the latest in headwear for the hot summer!!


Have a good week and keep playing well!
