Captain's Newsletter - 11 Feb 2019


Well what can I say about the weather this week that the above doesn't say!!! Storm Erik certainly made the course really challenging and it is easy to see why Links courses get the reputation they do in difficult weather conditions. As Erik waited off our western coastline, Tuesday's game was only slightly affected and it certainly did not put off the Alliance overall winners of Hazel, Karen and Julie R as they managed to score 39 points and with only 3 in their team!! Well done Ladies.

Thursday, well that was a very different picture!!! Erik was in full flow by then and it was very difficult at times to even stand still to drive off the tee, particularly on the 5th!! Needless to say, I for one, have certainly not managed to reduce my very high score on that particular hole yet!! One last round on Thursday 14th and lets hope we see calmer skies.

Saturday's match also saw some tricky weather conditions, with only 3 competitors (men) managing to score 36 or more in the Ken Bird Individual Stableford Competition. Whilst 8 Ladies braved the weather to compete, scoring was difficult this time around. Well done to those involved for getting out there though!!

The Minutes of the 1st Ladies Committee Meeting of the year are now available in the Locker Room in paper form. There is much going on at the moment with changes to the course, rules, weekend matches etc, so please do read them and talk to us if there is anything you are unsure about or indeed would like further information about. We will be contacting you all soon for your agreement to us holding your data. This is in line with the national requirements (GDPR) and something that all groups have had to comply with over the last year or so. In the meantime, Marica has asked that if you have changed any of your details; telephone, email or mail address, in the last year, could you please let her and myself know so that we can make sure we are as up to date as possible. Thank you.

Many of you will know that the Pearson season starts again after its Christmas and January break, this coming Wednesday 13th, when we will be playing Essendon in what will be a very tight game, and of course, we will be hoping for a home win. Good Luck Ladies, we all wish you well! Whilst some ladies have put their names down to indicate that they are available to play in the remaining matches of the season and thank you for doing so, we would like to reiterate the Pearson requirements. You will simply need a handicap between 13-32, and indeed a player over 32 may play but will need to play off 32. If you haven't yet put your name down to indicate that you are interested and available to play, please do so. Megan and Kathy C, the Pearson Captain and Vice Captain will then select the team two weeks prior to the match and of course, will then let you all know.

Finally, there are still a few spaces left for the Megan Bonner Par 3 competition for Thursday 21st Feb, so do get your name down! The CEO of MIND in Mid Herts will be joining us for the after match soup and baguette and will talk to us about their work in our area, before we finish with the Winter Eclectic presentation. Even if you are not playing but would like to join us for soup, baguette and the talk afterwards, you are very very welcome, just drop me a line.

Happy golfing.
Margaret
