Captain's Newsletter - 11 September 2022

I am sure I speak for everyone when I express our condolences to the Royal Family on the death of Queen Elizabeth 11. Most of us have only known 1 Monarch in our life and I think she has been a great example to us all in her loyalty, her steadfastness, and let's not forget her sense of duty and humour. RIP

What is this green stuff on our fairways? It's a while since we have seen it. We all now need to change our games. Golf is an ever changing sport which keeps us on our toes.

Winter Rules are now in place with immediate effect. This means that -on closely mown areas - the ball can be lifted, cleaned and placed within six inches of where it came to rest, no nearer the hole. This will be especially welcome on the 14th fairway at the moment.

General Play Cards - please continue to submit these but no need to let Karen or Lin know if it is a Tuesday or Thursday. Cards may only be submitted for singles scores. Any team and match play scores are not acceptable even if the golfer completes each hole
