Captain's Newsletter - 10 November 2019


My goodness, Thursday night's AGM was such a great evening, with lots of Trophies, Cups and prizes to hand out, photos to enjoy and of course, the great company of many of the Ladies Section! Thank you to all those who attended, I hope you enjoyed the evening. We formerly, welcomed the new committee and especially Rogie T, who will be the new Ladies Captain for 2020, with Pauline H as her Vice Captain, it will be a great year, I am sure! A MASSIVE thank you to all for your very generous gift, the lovely memory book and the messages in the card. As I said on the evening, I have thoroughly enjoyed my year, THANKS TO ALL YOU LADIES!! Here is Jackie S receiving her 'Most Improved Player for 2019' award. A much deserved award after a massive reduction in her handicap through the year.

It has been a while since my last newsletter, so big apologies for not being able to include everything that has happened while I have been away! You certainly seem to have had fun!! Halloween appears to have been a success - do you recognise everyone I wonder!! Maybe it will become a regular addition to the diary?


So what has happened in the last week or two? The changeover to Intelligent Golf has occurred and appears to have gone well. If you have any problems booking into a competition, please do say and the committee will do their best to help you out. The first competition on Ig for the ladies will be the November Qualifier on 28th and you will need your new silver card or your PIN number to allow you to check-in on the morning of the comp., something for us to get into the habit of! Registering to enter a competition can be done at the club with your card or PIN number or at home in the same way as before. Let us know if you have any difficulty, we are here to help!

The Mixed Weekend League started with a 1st round of a Pairs Texas Scramble. Well done to those who went out in what was a very cold morning. A special congratulations to Margaret F, who with her husband, was the first lady on the results sheet with a 19th place. Great start to the Winter Golf season! The Tuesday competition last week was only 9 holes with Jackie S winning on count back from Lynn T, both with 16 points. Well done ladies. The prizes for the Fun event's winning team on Thursday were presented at the AGM! Please forgive me for not remembering the results, it had been a busy evening!

This coming Thursday is the Hattersley Cup; Captain v Vice Captain. The team sheet is on the board and we will present the Trophy to the winning team after the match with tea and cake to hand, in the upstairs meetings room. Please do stay after the game. Mandy U has very kindly given us some packs of her personally painted Christmas cards in order that we can raise more funds for the Captains Charity. The packs will be sold for £3.50 per pack of 6 or a donation if you feel generous!

The Tee Time list for the Winter Invitation is now on the board! As you will see we are a HUGE group of almost 90 ladies!! Lunch will therefore be served as a rolling buffet because of the numbers! The impact of SLOW PLAY is a concern as you will understand. Please remember IF YOU LOSE 1 MINUTE OF TIME EVERY HOLE, THIS AMOUNTS TO 18 EXTRA MINUTES PER ROUND!!! Please be vigilant!!

Finally, the Club AGM is on Tuesday12th November at 7pm, when the announcement will be made about the result of the Club Captain Ballot. Please do come along and support this event, if you can.

Yours
Margaret
Ladies Captain 2019
