With our annual welcome to the new Club Captain (Dave Cambers) the ‘Captain’s Drive-in Stableford competition was held on April 2nd 2017. A charity board was set up to guess where the Captains first drive of the day landed – as you can see from the video below he did an outstanding job – leaving his doubters having guessed he’d be in a tree, out of bounds or in pond out of pocket. It was no mean feat with a heckling audience – Overall winner Tom Wagland with a massive 42 points!

The Club runs a “100 Club” to boost Club funds. Each number costs £1 a week or £4 a calendar month if paid by Standing Order. A draw for cash prizes is held monthly, with bonus prizes quarterly and at Christmas. You may choose any number(s) between 1 to 100 that are not already spoken for.
50% of all receipts is paid out in prize money, so the more members there are, the bigger the prizes! You will find a Standing Order form at the link below if would like to participate!

PRESIDENT’S DAY 29TH AUGUST 2016
This was a well attended fun day, mostly all of us were playing with someone new, a gave a great atmosphere to the event. A little confusion was experienced over how to score. It was a three ball better ball, with the best gross and best nett score counting towards the score. This meant the person with the best gross score eg: 4 shots on a par 4, was recorded as 4 on the card. Then the best net player (not the same as the gross player) had their net score recorded, eg: 5 shots on a par 4 with a two stroke handicap would give a score of 3 on the card. After a little sorting of the cards the winners, runners up and third place were awarded:
Vivienne Hepworth was one of our founding members. She was the Ladies President for many years and helped make the ladies section the fun, supported group which we still are. Sadly she lost her fight with cancer in April 2015 and is still greatly missed. In her memory we have built ‘Viv’s Retreat’ on the 6th hole. One the work on the top of the 7th Tee has been competed, the retreat will be relocated to the top – the furthest point from the club house should you need to shelter and keep cosy.
