Presidents Report July 2018

Well here we are in the middle of a British Summer heat wave, I didn’t think I would be saying that earlier in the year but here it is.
The weather does present problems for our green keepers Lee and Pete they are however doing a marvellous job in keeping the course playable and looking in good order.

Interesting times for Bishopswood going forward, I am sure you either attended Dave Penson’s presentation, or have subsequently been bought up to speed.
Dave’s plans are important to each and everyone of us that love this place and wish to see it continue well into the future. How can you help? Please take a few minutes to send an email or letter of support for the scheme to the Planning Dept.

On the golfing front we have a resurgent Juniors section under the supervision of Martin Smith, Steve Ward and ably assisted by Kevin Fleet.

Gemma Burgess goes from strength to strength recently qualifying for a tournament in the USA
then goes off and qualifies for the final of the Abraham Trophy, a competition to find the most improved golfer in handicap and age groups, keep it up Gemma.

Also watch out for Fed Gill the winner of the Whale Trophy this year. Fred is improving very quickly.

Malcolm your Captain has an impressive record in Gents matches this year and thanks goes to all those who have supported the team. I’m sure if you enjoy Malcolm’s monthly report he will give full details, try stopping him!

Bob Lycett (Seniors) Jenny Lycett (Ladies) David Williams (Mixed) have all been managing very busy schedules for their sections and your continued support is appreciated. Heartfelt thanks to all.

Your Committee has been very busy this last few months.

A review and updating of the clubs safeguarding policy has been completed, thanks to Bob Lycett for heading the review. This policy is available on the notice board and on the website.

A new membership application form has been produced and agreed with management. Thanks go to Bob Mitchell.

Data Protection (GDPR). All documentation and processes have been reviewed and updated and documentation has been posted on the website. Thanks to Martin Leyshon.

The process of renewing Golfmark has been commenced. Initial meeting with County representative has taken place. Nick Leonard will lead this process.

As you can see a lot of work is carried out behind the scenes other than the day to day work in running the golf club membership.

The next social/golf event is the pinnacle of the Captains year - CAPTAINS DAY
fast approaching on Saturday 18th August.

This is an all day fun event with hopefully a full field of golfers followed by food and a live act in the evening and the idea is to play golf either morning of afternoon and then bring the whole family back for some fun and laughter in the evening. This event is open to all members, yes ALL members.

So I look forward to seeing you all there supporting Malcolm.

Look out for entry sheets for this and all the upcoming events.

Enjoy the weather.
