I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
Firstly I must apologise on behalf of the directors for announcing that Mike Smyth had died. I don’t know where the information came from but Malc Whitter sent a card of condolence to his family only to get a phone call from the said Mike! I take it as a lesson learned that we must have confirmation before announcing such things in the future!
The captains’ putt out and drive-in is on Sunday 5th January. With the course so wet you may not have been to the club for a while but there is a list up for those wishing to play in the morning. If you wish to play in the drawn team game, and the course is open, email or phone the club by Friday and your name can be added. £2 to play and it will be a shotgun start at 10am. A buffet breakfast is available from 9am, at a cost of £7, but you do need to book. Also if you have an unwanted bottle or chocolates there will be a raffle in aid of the club. The putt out will be at about 1pm. I am sure the three captains would like to see as many members at the club as possible on the day. I am also sure you would like to join with me in wishing Marian, Aidie and Steve the very best for their year in office.
I saw a photo of the dip in front of the 8th green the other day and it was like a moat! I am sure you will agree that the course has never been so wet, closed so often or for so long. Let’s hope the New Year brings in drier weather so we can all get back to playing golf.
Very best wishes for 2020 from all the directors. We will continue to do the very best we can on your behalf.
