Club Magazine

March 2018

Welcome everyone, to the March 1st, 2018 edition of our online Club Magazine.

I hope the winter, with all its challenges has not put you off the game of golf forever. It is a good few years in my memory, since we had so many closures of our course, and so many days when we could only carry our clubs. Thank fully Easter is just around the corner and we will shortly hold our AGM and start the new season off.

Our AGM will be held in the clubhouse on Saturday 24th March at 7.00pm and the next day at 11.00am our newly elected Captain will tee off in his “Drive-in”, alongside the Ladies Captain, Seniors Captain and Juniors Captain. Let’s hope for perfect weather!
News, as always at this time of year, is a bit scant, but we do have a message from our Captain as he prepares to vacate the job. Also, we have an article about a significant honour being bestowed upon Louise Fitzroy, one of our Ladies members.

No doubt most of you will know the outcome of the EGM held on 8th February, but for those that do not – a brief summary is published below.

Peter Deal has an appeal to help him in preserving the records of our club for posterity and we also publish the information about the Pro-Am being run 24th May.

It is over 10 years – Ken Curl was Club Captain, since Rowlands last hosted such an event. I remember playing in it and it was a terrific day. As I recall the Hargeaves family team were the winners. I remember it well as the Ladies team prize, and second overall, went to my wife Sue, with Angela Steeles and a guest from Waterlooville GC. I am reminded of this quite frequently!!

There is a report about our Juniors (shortly to get a new clubhouse), a joke of the month and a question about Rules.

No doubt I will have more to report on in the Magazine update due at the beginning of May, after our AGM.
Good Golfing to you all.
