Club Championships 2022: The club championships will be held over one week next year:
  • Round One: Tuesday 5th July 2022
  • Round Two: Thursday 7th July 2022

This will enable it to fit in nicely with the ladies away weekend (the week before).

Pearsons League: Our Pearson squad are taking on Welwyn Garden City Golf Club in our first match of the season on Monday 1st November. Good luck ladies!

Club Captain: Our club captain Margaret enjoyed a glass of fizz for a special birthday celebration last Monday! Happy Birthday Margaret! What a lovely day!

Annual £10 Fee: It has been decided by the ladies committee to waiver the annual £10 fee again this year as the ladies section has enough funds at present, this will remain under review over the year and ladies will be notified if any changes are required. However, the £10 joining fee still remains as a one off payment for all new members.

Winter Rules: Pick and Place came into effect on Monday 18th October 2021.

Slow Play: There is a subtle difference between Slow Play & Bad Play! We can all have a day when we play a bad round, lose balls, bad shots etc. thats just how it goes sometimes and we all have to accept that is not slow play, we don’t mean to do it! But we can all avoid slow play by:

  • Teeing off at our correct tee time
  • Not chatting on the tee
  • Not marking our cards on the green
  • Not leaving our trollies in front of the green
  • Being ready for our next shot
  • Waving through players that are faster
  • Picking up when we cannot score

These are just a few of the things we can do to avoid slow play. Lets make winter golf more fun by avoiding slow play it’s getting so cold and wet out there! Many thanks.

Have a good week!
