Captain's Newsletter - 1 August 2021

Yet another great golfing week with many handicap cuts well done ladies!

Scratch Team

The ladies Scratch team were in action today v Porters Park. Some very hard fought matches, well played ladies.

'Scratch Captain' Sarah: ‘On a beautiful lush and extremely well maintained course the Scratch team took on Porters Park. All the matches were played in great spirit against some wily competitors and in spite of intermittent rain we were still in good spirits at the end! There were 2 matches that went to the 18th and sadly we narrowly lost 3 and 2 overall. We will be entertaining them on the return leg at Chesfield in 2 weeks time.’

Friendly Team
The ladies friendly team will take on Mowsbury at home on Friday 6th August, good luck ladies.

Birdie Badges
The birdie book is back! Any birdies obtained in competitions to date for this year will be added to the book. Any birdies obtained in knockouts, friendlies or scratch/Pearson matches need to be entered by individuals (I know dates for these are impossible to remember but which competition will suffice). Ladies are now responsible to register their birdies in the book which will run until 31st Oct 2021. Birdie badges will be presented to individuals when they achieve their:
  • 1st Birdie
  • 10th Birdie
  • 20th Birdie

Touchscreen Score Entry Terminal
The touchscreen is located in the reception area for those of you who may prefer to use it instead of your mobile phone to register your score. Following this please ensure you place your score card in the box in the ladies locker room. Score cards must be verified by the handicap secretary - failure to place your card in the box will mean disqualification.

Food & Beverage App
Food or drink orders may now be ordered via the app and delivered direct to your table AND it gives you your 10% Members discount.

Car Wash
If you fancy coming back to a lovely clean car following your round, check out the car wash in the staff car park. Many ladies have recommended them stating 'they do a great job'.

Enjoy your week!

Kind regards
