Notes from the President

Since our last edition of the Tidings, we at the club have lost two of our senior members, both past Captains of the Old Salts, George and Tony were
much loved members and were both perfect gentlemen. They will be missed by all. The past and current President of our close neighbours Chestfield,
John Lee and Nick Pout, send their sincere condolences to George and Tony’s families through this difficult time.

Staying with Chestfield, during the last month, we have played our Presidents team match against them at home, and can report that we won 4 & 3. I would to take this opportunity to thank all my team for giving up their time and say well done. In fact I can report that we have won 90% of all matches played against our neighbours at home in the past year, a statistic to be justly proud of and again a well done to all who took part.

During the last month our seasonal maintenance has taken place on the course together with additional drainage work, for which I would like to congratulate all concerned including our own green staff. I think the course is in terrific condition so well done.

The social activities have continued to entertain us and we have been lucky enough to have enjoyed a challenging and enjoyable quiz and just this past weekend a Boat trip on the river Thames. Both events were well supported and enjoyed by all and my thanks go to Mel Bashford for all her hard work with the quiz and Bob Ireland for his organisation of the river trip.

I am sure you will all have noticed the days are getting shorter as Autumn commences, so know you will all join me in hoping the weather gods will be kind to us in the months ahead.
