Captain's Newsletter - 14 February 2021

Happy Valentines Day! This must be the coldest Valentines day on record. In fact, it has also been the coldest January across the UK since 2010. Would be far too cold for golf - me thinks - every cloud and all that!

The bad weather has unfortunately made it impossible for Lee, and his significantly reduced team, to carry out the planned ‘drill and fill’ work on the greens scheduled for 8th February. However, a warmer week ahead is forecast, so fingers crossed. On another note its been a great week for some Chesfield Downs Ladies with so many of you now having had your first dose of the vaccine. Every day it's getting closer for those of us who are still waiting.

Ping Mixed Betterball Competition

I am delighted to say that we now have a date in the diary for the Ping Mixed Betterball Competition, Saturday 29th May 2021 (subject to government guidelines). 5 day members will be granted courtesy of the course for this competition. It is a similar event to the Ladies Ping Pairs which is so popular within our section. So I thought I would give you advance warning to ‘save the day’. This new mixed event for club golfers will see the top 50 pairs in the country qualify for the national final at Thonock Park on Tuesday 7th September, 2021. Winners and runners-up from each club – even if they don’t make it to the final – will receive prizes from PING. England Golf have not released all the competition rules at present but for further information go to:

County News

Until we have a route map out of lockdown, the county is working on the premise of ‘business as usual’, with that in mind, please see links below for the current Championship schedule of events for 2021. When more information on government restrictions is released, the county will communicate their plans for rescheduling, if necessary.
