Captain’s Blog – February 2019

Well, what can I say……                                                                                                                        


Not a great deal has happened since the last blog! The weather has turned for the worst and the Winter Leagues have been cancelled, so hopefully we’ll have a dry week and resume this weekend to finally conclude who gets promoted / relegated from their respective divisions? On the plus side, Chris Bassford and Bob Hatton have halted their slide and have now gone three weeks undefeated……

January Round-Up

January saw the greenstaff take ownership of some new equipment in the form of a new tractor and a ProCore Aerator, which I’m sure will be very useful additions to their armoury and which we’ll all see the benefit of over the coming months. Whilst our main greens must remain the top priority, we are hoping that the aerator will have a significant impact on the quality of our winter greens and a plan has been put in place to improve them, so hopefully a marked improvement will be seen over time.

Coming up in February / March

Can I remind everybody that the annual subscriptions are due and prompt payment would be greatly appreciated to enable our yearly budgets to be drafted up and for plans to be put in place to ensure that the course is presented in the best condition as possible?

Although time is running out, there are still a few slots open for the Valentine’s night meal. Bookings can be made by behind the bar or by speaking to Bob or Joy.

Once again, Ian Jacob will be quizmaster for the spring quiz on Friday 8th March. It would be nice to get as many teams as possible taking part on the evening, so please come along and support what is normally a fun filled event. Don’t worry, I have very little input into our team and my role is to just fetch the beer from the bar!!

Tables are going fast for the annual dinner dance, so please get your forms filled out as soon as possible and handed in behind the bar. Details of the evening can be seen on the posters around the clubhouse and also on the social media pages.

And that ladies and gentlemen, brings me to the end of a very short and sweet February blog!
