Captain Gary

Unfortunately, the rain keeps falling and preventing most of us from getting out and play golf, there’s not much we can do but look out of the window and hope for better weather (even frost sound favourable right now). Still it’s great to see so many of you attending the club and socialising with your golfing buddies. Talking of social, it’ was fantastic to see so many of you at my first event of 2020 “Chinese New Year” sorry if you missed out but tickets sold out quickly and it was a really good night with fabulous Chinese food options created by Ray and his team. Thanks to all the Social Committee for their help and I appreciate all the positive feedback from those who attended.
I am delighted to have Martin Smith (Smithy) a Vice-Captain, I know you will all look forward to congratulating him when you next see him, and he comes with his own Secretary (lovely Jackie).
Next seasons pricing structure for golf membership has been released and I can only echo the words of Big Bob, it’s a very bold and positive move and most of you will benefit going forward. I’m confident this will attract new member as you will be hard pushed to find a better offer. I hope you will have already made the commitment enjoy your golf with us at Bishopswood.
We are hopeful that we will be able to appoint a new Club Secretary in the next few weeks, this will be a big relief for Big Bob Mitchell (President) and myself as we have been keeping the ship afloat for the last two months.
Ladies: The Lovely Deedee (my wife) has now set up the bookcase in the Ladies changing room “Book Swap” simple bring in some of your books and exchange them for others a small donations to my charity is optional if you don’t have one to swap. Gent’s if you are interested in this please let me know.

We will endeavour to keep you updated with golfing and social events.
