Captain's Newsletter - 5 Nov 2018

Thank you all for attending the AGM last week. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening and thank you soooo much for all my lovely gifts. I am looking forward to purchasing some new clubs next year and the photo book of 2018 is a fantastic memory of my year. I would like to add my very good wishes for another such year to Margaret and her team in 2019. I know they will do a great job and be supported by an amazing group of ladies! Congratulations to all those winning trophies, cups and end of season orders of merit and Eclectics. If you weren't able to be there to collect your prizes I still have them and will try and pick a suitable moment to present you properly with your hard earned winnings.



Although the AGM is now complete there are still a number of events to come this side of the new year. This coming week we will be playing Captain v Vice Captain Pairs matchplay for the Hattersley Cup. The teams are on the board so please check your tee times in advance of Thursday. As this goes to print there is one space available to play as Julie R has had to pull out. Please let me know if you would like to play. After golf Marica is kindly laying on tea and cakes for us by way of celebration of her 'big' birthday so please stay afterwards and join us for tea and the presentation.

The Tuesday games have now moved to 9 holes, but you are of course welcome to play on if you wish and the weather permits. Just remember to hand your completed competition card in at the 9th. Last Tuesday saw the first of our "18 Hole Monthly Matchplay" games. This was designed to get a practice session in for team players ahead of the first match of the new season this week for the Pearson team. A very enjoyable round of friendly/competitive golf was had by all and good luck to the team against Manor of Groves at home on Wednesday. This format is aimed at ladies wishing to carry on playing 18 holes of golf throughout the winter months with a bit of matchplay practice. The next session will take place on Tuesday 27th November 2018. The sign up sheets for the usual Tuesday comp that day are on the board with a separate sheet for the matchplay practice. Whilst the idea is to use the last 2 tee times for the matchplay, please let any of us know if you cannot get a tee time that day for the Tuesday fun competition. Please be assured that Tuesday fun competitions and tee availability will not be compromised in any way by the once monthly matchplay.

You can still sign up for the Winter Invitation on Thursday Nov 22nd. Already we have lots of guests signed up as well so it should be a fun day with lunch afterwards and lots of prizes. Please let Kathy Carroll know if you or your guests have any special dietary requirements. In terms of payment please pay for yourselves in the usual ways and guests can settle on the day by cash or cheque. Margaret will be holding her first fundraising raffle that day for her chosen charities, MIND and Tilehouse Counselling. If you have any suitable prizes (that you would wish to win!) then please place them in the box in the locker room. We will sort the tee times out this week so you can let your guests know in good time!

Captains Day is on November 10th and I am greatly looking forward to playing with Hazel, Alison and Lorraine on the day and enjoying a night of casino, dancing and wine!! I look forward to sharing it with all who are taking part both in the golf and the evening.

On the club notice board in the bar you can sign up for the Christmas Jumper golf on Friday Dec 21st(always a fun day!) but also on that board you will find details of a number of workshops taking place to cover the new rules for 2019. These are free sessions to all and the one taking place at Chesfield is on Wednesday 16th January. Please see the notice board and sign up accordingly.

Let's hope we don't get too wet this week! Happy golfing!
Sarah Faircliff - Ladies Captain 2018
