Update from the Captain

Captains Log Star Date June 2018
Keep your eye on the ball
And to make the right call
When we’re longing for fall
On this evening in June

I take great pleasure in writing my monthly reports and hopefully they keep you all informed of what’s happening in and around the golf club, as I compose this month’s report, the warm and humid weather has finally arrived along with the occasional thunder storm, if we can dodge the down pours we can all start getting out on the course and enjoying our favourite pastime.
All the summer competitions are now in full swing, with everybody trying to play catch up and arrange matches.
Several organised trips away to foreign and UK venues have taken place since my last report, with many members enjoying different and varied locations and courses. Hopefully catching some early summer sun, one such trip returned with a surprise for yours truly, by collecting monies for various fines over their trip for my Captains Charity. Gentlemen I am eternally grateful.
Keeping the Captains Charity in your minds (as my charity aims to do), the Ladies Section of our great golf club, held their annual coffee morning on the 17th May, this has always been a well attended event, and organised with military precision, and I am pleased to announce the Ladies Section collected via their various stalls a vital contribution for my chosen charity, for this Ladies, I will endeavour to get around to you all and give you a big kiss, as a huge thank you.
Some of you may now be aware after falling foul of the front right pot bunker on the ninth, there is some new sand to play out of, I am sure Kevin will appreciate your comments.
The fun events the Secretary and I have been trying to organise for Bank Holidays, have often fallen foul of the weather. The one at the beginning of May suffered such a fate, but the one at the end of the month went ahead, the format was a modified greensomes event, I must thank the strong field of participants and the event was eventually won by Team Darch, well played Roy and Flynn,
Keeping you up to speed with the social side of the golf club and what is coming up, we will be holding a quiz evening on the 1st June, start time will be at seven thirty. On the 9th June the Summer Ball will be taking place (please register your interest behind the bar). Members and Guests Day takes place on Friday the 8th June, entry forms are still available, or alternatively you can register your interest with the Club Secretary, but you will have to be quick, Steve Ward will be holding a Charity Fun Event on Friday the 22nd June, where there will be a BBQ and live music, so please come along and support Steve.
Dates for your diaries in July start on the Friday 6th with the annual AMAM, this is a great day and deserves every bodies support, even if you cannot commit to the day, you can always purchase tickets for the evening festivities, also taking place on July 21st is the Cream Tea or High Tea afternoon, this event was very successful last year and I hope to replicate that success, also its two days before my birthday and it will save me from throwing a party, I look forward to seeing you there, as well as supporting all the other various events we have going on at the golf club.
Until next time its bye for now,
Club Captain
