Captains Message December 2019
So for the past three months it's rained and rained and then rained some more! Quite frankly I'm sick of it and I'm sure you are too. The course is exceedingly wet still and hasn't looked like drying out for weeks now, however it has been kept open when possible so that we can still get out there and play some golf should you want too. Bringing a sub in for winter league all of a sudden has a whole new meaning.. Winter league will resume now on Sunday January 5th weather permitting.
Sunday December 22nd is the winter league Christmas dinner in the clubhouse. Tickets are £20 which includes a three course Christmas meal " bums on seats at 2.15pm" and a comedian from 5pm for your entertainment, ticket sales are good for the day. Should any member of our club wish to join the party ask behind the bar put your name down and make your choice from the menu, it's great value and should be a good afternoon.
With no winter league that morning we are having a shotgun start "AM AM" golf event. There is a sheet on the stage to register your name. All names will be pulled at random on the morning of Friday 20th, put into teams of four and given a tee for a 08.15 start. Anyone who plays on the morning and is attending the Christmas meal will get a complimentary batch at the breakfast stop. All we ask if you are golfing that morning is for a small present with a minimum value of £5, be wrapped up and placed on the stage table, so everyone can go home that day with a prize.
This year we are looking to get families in the golf club on Boxing Day
Neil's kitchen will be open for bar meals and we will have music playing and footy on the big screen, some games for the kids and adults alike, so if you find yourself at a loose end why not bring the clan along and join your golfing buddies for the afternoon, it would be nice to see you all up there and finish the festive season off with a smile.
It just leaves me to say a very merry Christmas to you and your family and a very happy new year to you all.
