News and Updates:-

Thursday 12 May - Interclub Championship. This is run by The Club Company and is being held at Benton Hall 8 Senior men and 8 ladies of any age make up a team from the club. Chesfield have their quota of Senior men but not ladies. This date is also Ladies Spring meeting at Chesfield, however if you would like to represent the club go ahead and let Barry know. It would be a shame if the ladies were not represented. The final will be at Chesfield Downs 22 June.

I have heard it is a course worth playing!!!

Driving Range - I was asked when this would be open at the earlier time again. At the moment the balls are still being picked up by hand because of the wet conditions. Hopefully this mild weather will speed up the drying process and the tractor will once again be in use and the range can open earlier.

I am aware that the hairdryers are not working in the locker room and Barry has been informed.

I am away again next weekend so no newsletter. I am returning to my roots for a family birthday party. Do remember if you have anything you wish to be included in the newsletter then please e mail or text me.

Top Tip When leaving trolley near ditch on 10th hole until after your tee shot on the 11th please ensure it is not interfering with the players behind you with their shot on to the green Hand up - guilty as charged!
