First I would like to wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year with good health. 2018 went out with excellent celebrations for Christmas and New Year organised by the Social committee. Well done all those who attend those meetings to put on our entertainment during the winter months and an extra special thanks to all the Ladies who helped with the Children’s’ Christmas party.
Last month I asked you all to make a special effort to repair pitch marks on the greens, well along with the Captains also mentioning the subject in their speeches, I am pleased to say there has been a big improvement so let’s keep it up along with Divot marks please.
I must say the course is looking and playing the best I have seen it in the winter months for a long time, so a big shout out for Ted in his new role and the well planned work by Steve & Seth. It’s great to see the fairways recovering too.
Congratulations to Don Crawford, Callum Buchanan & Don Williams who all had a Hole in one on the same morning! The good news for this lucky trio is that everyone in the bar afterwards were all drinking coffee! I think that is what is known as a great Escape for the Hole In One’ers…
Upon us is probably the most significant year in the Clubs History for some time as we all witness the New Clubhouse grow from its foundations. This journey is a bit like Brexit! Whether you are for it or against it, we should all embrace the decision made by the majority and produce something that our future generations can use for their enjoyment and will also be a statement to other Clubs in the area that we are a contender in these forever changing times.
To conclude my message for this month, I would like to say to you all Just enjoy the coming year’s Golf as there will be plenty to distract us nationally and don’t forget for you members that have spare energy and good ideas to come forward and serve our Club which can be rewarding.
Bye for now John
