Captain's Newsletter - 3 January 2021

Good afternoon ladies’

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe we are in January already! I had hoped to be starting my captaincy year on a better note but unfortunately due to government restrictions we are still in Tier 4 and it appears we will be for a few weeks yet.

So for the moment this means:
No block bookings till further notice
Maximum of 2 balls allowed
Can only book Tee times 7 days in advance
Catering facilities, if available, remain take away only

Although this is not the start to the year we were all wishing, we will make the most of the situation. Kathy and myself will be in constant discussions with Barry to ensure we can get back to some sort of normality as soon as possible.

Winter Eclectic

I have proposed this to the committee and we are unanimous that we would like the 12 hole winter eclectic to go ahead. To make this possible we have had to change the rules a little (just this once). I hope you will also find it an agreeable solution during the current pandemic to keep playing the competitive golf we all love. So;

Rules for Winter Eclectic 2021
Book your own Tee times
Ladies must play with another member of the club (male or female)
Photograph your completed score card and send to Hazel following your round
Your playing partner must agree your score (just show each other your cards, NO signing required)
Once you have started to play a round you cannot decide to change your playing day
You must putt out on at least 3 holes on each round
No entry payment required but a contribution towards tea & cake when conditions allow

Dates for Winter Eclectic
Round 1 7th Jan - 13th Jan (Play any day during this period)
Round 2 14th Jan - 20th Jan (Play any day during this period)
Round 3 21st Jan - 27th Jan (Play any day during this period)
Round 4 28th Jan - 3rd Feb (Play any day during this period)
Round 5 4th Feb - 10th Feb (Play any day during this period)
Round 6 11th Feb - 17th Feb (Play any day during this period)
Round 7 18th Feb - 24th Feb (Play any day during this period)

I hope you enjoy this different 12 hole eclectic. Hopefully by the time we have finished we will be out of tier 4!

Winter Knock Out

The draw sheet remains on the notice board (opposite the ladies changing room).

Dates for Matches to be played by;
Round 1 to be played by 28th February
Round 2 to be played by 31st March
Final to be played by 30th April

Committee Meetings
We will be holding our first committee meeting on Thursday 21st January, via Zoom. If anyone has anything they would like raised please email me.

If you would like to help in the running of the section there is a sheet to sign up on the notice board, or simply email me. Any help running the section is very much appreciated and ensures the smooth running of our great club.

Booking Tee Times
Barry has requested our understanding and support when booking tee times. It has been noted that some members are booking a two ball with anonymous partner. The restriction of 2 balls for the moment is so that it is fair for everyone. Please arrange who you are playing with prior to booking, many thanks.

I am looking forward to an exciting year and feel very privileged to have a team of such lovely ladies to work with. Hopefully going into Spring we will see the return of normal golf functions.

Kind regards
Lady Captain 2021
