January 2018

Welcome to 2018 and the start of another golfing year

Hi everyone – and it is my pleasure to wish you all a very happy new year. Let’shope 2018 brings great weather, drives that avoid bunkers and putts that never lip out. (some hope!).

Just click on the items below to open up that article.

This being the quiet season there is not so much golfing news around. However, our men’s team that were entered into the National competition sponsored by Annodata covered themselves in glory in reaching the National Final in Jerez in Spain. A full report by Team Captain James Hawley is our major story.

We also have some details about the 2017 competitions including our Ladies Section competition winners list, and several statistical analysis of the Men’s 2017 competitions – Order of Merit, Season Eclectic results and an analysis of how the course played. These make fascinating reading – please take time to read them.

Our Club Captain Derek has supplied a suitable report, as he nears the end of his 12 months as our Captain. Steve Lapage the newly elected Men’s Senior Captain tells us about his interesting life.

Our Junior Section have elected Charlie Pope as their Captain for 2018 – congratulations Charlie! Please read about Charlie in the article below

The recommendations from the Strategic Review of the club, that need club rule changes to be implemented, will be voted upon at an Extraordinary General Meeting of club members on Thursday 8th February at 7.00pm in the clubhouse. This is important, and all members are encouraged to attend.

The usual supply of jokes is maintained and reports on the updated Trolley Shed and Peter’s Indoor Studio are also in this edition.

Thank you to all our contributors and I hope your winter blues do not get the better of you. It will soon be spring, and we will be welcoming a new Club Captain at his Drive-In!!

Meanwhile we have some social events to promote to you: - Jan 7th – NY Texas Shuffle competition; 19th January Quiz night with Phil Sparshatt, 17th February a musical evening with supper included, 9th March a second Phil Sparshatt quiz and on 17th March our Captains Farewell party with musical entertainers. Please watch the club notice board for full details.
Happy New Year to you all
Jim Thatcher
