Captains Newsletter: May 2022

May has arrived with warmer weather and the prospect of good golf dressed in summer clothing.

Greens are still being worked on, and due to this nicer drier weather greenstaff have been hampered with no rain to wash the sand in, although as I write this a shower is falling. Please stay patient and it will not be too long before they are back to their best.

To help maintain your golf course can I remind members to insure that you rake the bunkers after using them, what a pain it is when your ball lands in a foot print? Replace those divots and repair those pitch marks and our course will be top dollar.

This month sees lots of Club competitions being played and opportunities to represent the Club in many ways.

A GUW team qualifier was played at the weekend and the top 8 players will be split into two teams to go on to a regional final and if successful then go to Celtic Manor in August of this year, good luck to you all.

Seniors have started their matches and were successful in beating Old Padeswood away 8/2 well done to them and good luck in the forthcoming return match on the 12th.

Ladies have played their Challenge Bowl and congratulations to Gillian Williams who beat Lady Captain Julie Hanmer-Price on countback to claim the trophy both scoring 38 points.

We have exciting times ahead with the launch of the Intelligent Golf Management system on the 11th of May. This will be replacing the BRS system and will make life a lot easier for the lads in reception and us members. Josh will be sending out details very soon on how to operate the new system and there is also an app that you can download onto your devices if you so wish.

Please remember to have a pint or a coffee after your game and get that clubhouse buzzing.
