Captain's Newsletter - 24 Sep 2018



It looks as though Autumn is on its way, knee deep in leaves now and battered by various stormy winds and now rain. However we all play on, in denial that we may have said goodbye to our wonderful summer!

However, the diary was right and this week it was our Autumn Meeting and over 30 of us played in fairly windy conditions for the Chris Leary Chalice. It was fantastic that Jenny Feaver was the winner with 37 pts. Jenny told us all that the force 9 gale 'suits her game'. Congratulations Jenny, a very popular and worthy winner!

A number of other trophies, cups and prizes were presented after a wonderful lunch and I would like to congratulate everyone. Good to see some of our lovely 9 holers too. If you weren't there to collect your prizes then please try and make it to the AGM (Nov 1st 7pm) when there will be more presentations...and FREE wine!!!! It is a chance to find out what is going on next year as well as to celebrate this year. 

The raffle held yesterday in aid of the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance raised in excess of £200, thanks to all who donated prizes and for your very generous donations to the charity. 

In addition to the prize giving we took some great pics of the Ladies Section sporting the new colours, great to see so many Ladies supporting the day and wearing new sweaters. If you feel the need to get one please see the guys in the pro shop for details.

 

As you are all aware Captains Day will now be held on Saturday Nov 10th - still lots of space and weekend ladies don't forget you can come too!!!The sign up sheet is on the Club Board and the more the merrier. From next week I will be selling the raffle tickets for that day. The prize is a Years FREE 7 DAY membership of the club so it's got to be worth £5 a ticket.

Details of the 2019 Away Weekend are now on the board. Next year we will be off to Stoke by Nayland in Essex from Sun June 2nd to Tuesday June 4th. I have heard that its a great course and venue so get signed up, roomies can be sorted in due course I am sure and deposits are due by December 1st (extended from Sept 14th) 

There is a list up on the Thursday board of those ladies eligible for entry into the Kathy Dale Medal Final and the Lauren Pitcher Stableford Final. Please sign in on the computer for these competitions in October but if you are not eligible then on each occasion there is a separate Medal and Stableford Competition. Any queries please contact Lin Goodey. Whilst we are on the subject of Kathy and Lauren - good luck girls this coming week in the finals of the Yonex Pairs at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club.

Christmas Update - Jackie Reid has arranged for a Christmas Wreath Workshop at the club again this year - date for your diary is Tuesday Dec 4th 1.00-3.30pm. When Jackie returns from holiday she will put the details and sign up sheet on the board. Please also sign up if you are interested in meal out on Thursday 13th December. I will let you have further details in due course but I think there are enough names on the board to get something booked away from the Club party night this year.

Looks like the forecast is drier and less windy for the week ahead so get out there and enjoy some Autumn golf.
