Captain's Newsletter - 10 Dec 2018

Well, I am back from Christmas tree installation, somewhat exhausted but looking forward to picking up my clubs again and seeing you all through the week! I hope you all managed to get a bit of golf in over the last couple of weeks in spite of the weather...a sample below of some of my work whilst you were on the course...



Back to the important issues of the day..this Thursday is the newly formatted Christmas 4BBB, it looks like there are nearly 40 of us playing 9 holes. There will be prizes for the best dressed Christmas pair and the winning pair. Might be some forfeits too....! Please bring some nibbles for the afternoon upstairs in the gallery room. Chips and hot drinks will be provided. Rosemary and Keith from the Essex and Herts Air Ambulance will be joining us to receive the cheque for this years fundraising and there will be a new rules briefing for next year (nothing heavy I am assured)! Then the evening out will be at the Hermitage that night - arrive at 6.30pm.

There are a couple of Fun Club competitions in the next few weeks open to all - the Christmas jumper challenge is on Friday 21st Dec, shotgun start at 8am. Still 2 tees available at the time of writing. Also the Boxing Day Scramble (on Dec 26th!!) sign up is on HDID.

Into 2019, we are now up to 32 people for the away weekend but intend to have a reserve list so if anyone would like to add their name to the list please do so!

The White tee shirt list is still up and doing well. The list will remain on the board until the end of 2018 and then Margaret will place a bulk order with the Pro Shop and hopefully get a small discount. There are samples available for trying on for size in the Pro shop before you buy!

See you all in the week

Great decision to cancel the November Stableford last Thursday- the weather was horrendous...!

The annual Ladies v Men match took place on Sunday 25th November. It was a dry and benign day on the links! The matches were close but unfortunately (from the Ladies point of view) the Men, plying off the yellows (!) triumphed by 4.5 points to 1.5 points! Well done though to all the players - men and ladies. The matches were played in great spirit and thoroughly enjoyable. Des happily took the trophy!




The Pearson team played a home tie on Wednesday against our local rivals Knebworth. There were some familiar faces in their team but I am delighted to say that on a misty, drizzly, very windy day Chesfield ran out 4-3 winners. What a result - really well done to Megan and her team...


The Ladies section white tee shirts are now in the pro shop so you can try on and get the right size. If you would like to purchase one - for use in all our teams then there is a sign up list on the board. Any queries please contact Margaret.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Christmas Jumper Golf on Friday December 21st. This is always a fun day, the sign up sheet is on the club notice board. Great to see lots of you have signed up already!

Deep in the Christmas trees now....!!! Happy golfing
