Captain's Newsletter - 10 February 2020

Hopefully storm Ciara today (Sunday) will pass with not too much damage and all will be well for next weeks golf for you all.

No I'm not going to tell you what the weather is like where I am that wouldn't be fair 😎

Another two weeks of competitions have been played without any rainfall and some lovely sunny days which has helped the course dry out quite a bit. Some bunkers are being renovated so are GUR. More will be done over time.

Tuesday 28th January
We played a Novelty Stableford a new one on me, you got a free drop out of a bunker, a free kick, take your tee shot again and a free drop out of water. How many did you use? Anne L won with 18 points with Julie P hot on her heels with 17 points.

Tuesday 4th February
One of everyone's favourite formats Stableford alliance played on a lovely sunny February day Debbie F, Julie R, Sarah F and Katy C came in with a very respectable 39 points.
