Captain's Newsletter - 9 Jan 2016

(2016 Diary and 2016 Rules Books are available from reception and the pro shop.  Get your copy.)


7-day golfers played the only main course competition this week.  Double points off the Yellows – just a 9 hole competition because of the awful weather, but we were pleased to be on the course and playing.  Winners were: 1st Kathy Dale 22 pts, 2nd Linda Brown 20 pts, 3rd Pat Ward 19 pts

We were delighted to welcome back Sue Brady from her 7 month absence with injury. She was thrilled to find that she has not lost her touch. 

Tuesday & Thursday
Main course was closed.  The Par 3 was open and some ladies have practiced their short game.  Julie Price parred 6 of the Par 3 holes on Tuesday – now that is really good golf.


7-day members are playing in the Mixed Winter League (Men’s and Ladies’ section combined).  It is run as an Order of Merit competition throughout the winter months.  This week is a pairs competition “Double Greensomes”.

Join in a fun game of GRUESOMES!! Should be excruciatingly hilarious.

Julie Price has converted all the 2016 formats that Brigid has organised for us onto the DIARY CARDS and these will be available from Tuesday 12th Jan.

Tuesday tee times have filled up very fast.  No additional tee times are currently available so please add your name as a reserve and if anyone is unable to play, please let someone on the reserve list know. Thank you.

Change of format - Because the start of play is currently all off the 10th, we have changed the usual 12-hole Eclectic to a 9-hole Stableford competition, run over 7 weeks, with the best 4 cards to count as your score. (First week no play, so 6 more chances to get a good score).


In December, Amanda Macknight organised and hosted a Christmas morning at her house.  She raised a fantastic £285 for our 2015 Captain Jean Ray’s charities.  Then an additional amount for my own 2016 charity The Garden House Hospice in Letchworth.  Thank you Amanda – you are a star!!
