Charity Day 28th June

Charity Day 28th June In Aid of Phil Westley.

The day is in aid of my brother Phil Westley, he was diagnosed in February with throat cancer.

An ex soldier, fireman & policeman. He now works by teaching and mentoring troubled kids.

He is self employed as is his wife so cannot now work, he therefore doesn’t get paid.

The purpose is to raise funds to support the family whilst he battles this terrible disease.

Thanks for your help,

All the best,
Cliff Westley (DG Member)

2 Holes in 1

Congratulations to Shey Walder and Justin Shell on both carding a hole in 1 on the 15th in Saturdays Medal. The odds of making a hole in 1 are approximately 12500/1 and to get two on the same hole in the same competition is brilliant.

Congratulations to you both

Captains Day Report

From Anne-Marie

“I was told that I would enjoy the day and I certainly did. After helping with Registration it was soon time for the Drive In. The old wood, with a very shiny handle was produced for me to hit my ball. I was very relieved and delighted to see it launch into the air and down the driving range away from the members who had congregated to watch and who had taken bets on the distances hit by the Captains. The following Texas Scramble was a fun filled round of golf with the President, Club, Ladies and Senior’s Captains combining their skills to try and come in with a respectable score. We had our moments of brilliance but were not in the prizes.
My thanks to all the people who came together to make the day run smoothly: TC and Andy Storer for the Master of Ceremonies and the admin, Viv and Mike Lewsey for running the registration, Steve Lillywhite for taking the photos, Dawn and Sue for taking refreshments around the course during play, Molly for the flapjacks, Nigel and his team for the catering, Tom for organising the prizes, Dave and his team of greenkeepers for preparing the course in such good condition and lastly, all the club members who contributed so magnificently to raise £520 for the Rosemary Appeal.”

Champagne Roll up is coming on the 12th April

**** Date change now the 12th April ****

Finally!!! The inaugural ‘champagne roll up’ for the 2019 season starts again on Friday 12th April. This is a nine hole roll up stableford competition. The course is booked from 4pm each Friday for those taking part.

Due to the success of previous year's the roll up will again alternate between the front and back nine. On the 12th April we will be using the front nine. The cost of entry is £3 and covers the cost of the champagne winning prizes. You also have the opportunity to purchase discounted meal after the golf at the very reasonably price of £7.

The presentation of prizes takes place around 8pm and each Friday we also run a members cash draw, to which the owners generously contribute £25 each week. This year the starting pot will be £25.00. If you are not in the bar at the time of the draw the money rolls over to the following week.

Tonight we will also be announcing the winner of the annual subscription fee draw for those paid in full by the 1st April and you could win
