Captains Newsletter: June 2022

Glorious Glorious June, lovely weather, fantastic golf course and lots of great facilities. This is Clays Golf Club at its finest. Use and enjoy all that’s on offer.

First let me congratulate Malcolm Williams and Ewan Bonds and team for all their great effort in producing a fantastic NHS charity day.

It was well supported from club members and visitors who praised the event and our course, so yet again a massive thanks to Mark and the boys for their efforts.

All the results from the day are on the Clay’s web site and well done to those prize winners. The weather was inclement to start but brightened as the day progressed although a strong breeze made for tough conditions. Scores were very close throughout and comments were that we have a very tough course.

The total monies raised will be posted as soon as the blind auction has been run. There are lots of fantastic prizes on offer and if anyone wishes to participate the auction will close on the 18th June. Details are still in the clubhouse.

Jubilee plate has entered the 1st round proper and matches are on the notice board so good luck to all in this round.

The DGU team visited Wrexham on the 29th May and achieved a narrow but a great win, 4 1/2 to 3 1/2. A brilliant start to the team’s league matches. Next is a visit from Moss Valley on Sunday 19th June. Good luck team and well done to Vice Captain Mick McHugh in picking a winning team.

Congratulations Clays Ladies winning their home match against Royal St Davids Harlech in the NW Challenge shield. The Ladies section has been supported well and continues to grow with new members, which is fantastic for the club.

JCB qualifier is now on the HDID knockout section, if you were among the top eight you will see who you are pitted against in the knockout stages; please complete the 1st round by beginning of July.

A note from our handicap secretary Peter Bowen, please if you enter a competition you are obliged to submit your card, even if you decide midway that you are having a bad round. Failure to do so can mean you could be penalised by Wales golf.

Up and coming event is CAPTAINS’ DAY on the 9th July. This, as last year will be a shotgun start. Entry sheet is on the noticeboard at the bottom of the stairs, please support. £10 entry, which will incorporate food, and a free drink at the bar. If any member wishes to donate raffle prizes please leave at reception and big thanks for doing so.

Having just completed the NHS charity day brings me and Lady Captain to inform members that our charity this year will be in aid of Shooting Star Cancer Support Wrexham, who apart from myself, have given great help and care to many. There will be further information concerning the charity in the form of leaflets in the clubhouse. Please help and we will be hosting our charity day on the 13th August.

Just leaves me to wish you all good golf and to remind you that using the rakes in the bunkers is free, so please use them.
