Winter Invitation
Sixty players were blessed with bright sunny weather for our Winter Invitation.

This ever popular 9 hole competition welcomed visitors from Heydon Grange, Colmworth, Knebworth, Aldwickbury and a return to Chesfield for Liz Cooke and Brigid Kerr. We all enjoyed a delicious hot carvery before the presentation of the many prizes.

Over £450 was raised from the raffle and sale of Christmas cards, this goes towards Sarah's charity for 2018, Essex & Herts Air Ambulance.

The second Pearson match took place last week with Brocket Hall coming to play at Chesfield. Some close fought games. Final score Chesfield 3 Brocket Hall 4. There will now be a mid season recess until April.

Christmas Greensomes
Still time to sign up for some Christmas fun. Lots of on course fun, food, forfeits and frolics followed by presentation of cheque to Willow Foundation in the Gallery Suite. Bring your nibbles to enjoy whilst taking part in Marica's quiz.
