Whitstable Tidings October 2018

Howdy from the President

Hello everyone.

Quite a lot has happened at the club since my last Tidings. Course maintenance has been completed successfully with heavy rain just at the right time on the following weekend, 23.5 mm wow… so good news for Steve and Seth.

I had my annual Presidents match this past Sunday 29th away at Chestfield and they also are in the middle of Maintenance. On that note I would like to thank the 13 ladies and gentlemen for giving up their time to be part of my team. I am sure they would join me in saying that we had a great day and were warmly welcomed by our close neighbours. I look forward to our return match next year.

Finals day has also happened and thankfully it was excellent weather for all the players. I would like to congratulate all the winners Mick Found (Captains prize), David Hodgson (Seasalter Cup), Ray Emmerson (Veterans Putter), Callum Buchanan (Juniors), Sue Pout [Lady Captain] (Seasalter Trophy), Jack Tucker and Millie Tucker (Stanley Cup), Joan Sykes and Helen Foad (Jubilee Rose Bowl).

Where there are winners there also has to be runners up so well done for reaching the final namely Jack Tucker, Jimmy Bennett, Tony Love, Millie Tucker, Mel Bashford and Val Brown. As you can see some players achieved more than one final, which is very impressive. to the runners up better luck next year. The keen-eyed ones amongst you will notice there is one result missing……… the prestigious Committee Cup for the men’s section for which we had two members tied. The play-off for the title was between Callum and Ian Horton played in the October Medal which Callum eventually won by 3 shots thus scooping the trophy. I am looking forward to the night golf scheduled for the 26th October. Last year’s event was brilliant so fingers crossed for good weather which is essential. Howard and Richard have put an awful lot of work into this particular event so well done to them.

The annual Dinner and Dance is fast approaching and there are still places left! It would be nice to see as many of this year’s trophy winners in attendance as possible so please come if you are free, it’s a great night to end the golfing season. Steve the Steward at the Bar is taking the bookings So to end my message, enjoy your golf and attend as many social events as you can throughout the winter period.

Bye for now John
