Captain's Newsletter - 22 August 2022

Still waiting for a drop of rain in Shillington. When will this weather break. My water butts are empty and I feel guilty using the hose even though there is no ban in this area. When we are playing in our thermals in the winter we will look back fondly at this time

The ball is running even faster now on the course which means lots of handicap cuts. Please put in General Play Cards when you can. Stableford Eclectic is a good opportunity for this as long as you aren't holding up play. Please don't protect your handicap by not submitting cards - it isn't then a true reflection of your handicap

Some ladies found the ball running to their advantage on Thursday Hazel, Lynn C, Pat and Clare. all scored Eagles Well done ladies

Two ladies went one better and scored a hole in one - Pat and Linda B. Fantastic ladies

The committee is aware of the issue of high and low handicaps playing in the same competition and we are working hard to try and redress the balance. This of course can't happen overnight so please be patient.

Wendy left 3 tee shirts in the locker room and they have been taken - presumably someone thought they were for sale. If it was you please can you return them to Wendy. Thank you

If you would like to have a white sleeveless club t shirt please let me know. At the moment I don't have enough for an order.
