Congratulations to Stuart Oliver and John Clavey after they managed to beat David Jones and John Smith to claim the Rosebery Cup, its John's first club trophy after many tries and he is delighted to get his name up on the boards around the clubhouse and his name in club's history books, the lessons are paying off.
In the Davis Cup its congratulations to Niki Clark and John Preston as they took the title against Lila Garrod and John Bateman.
A great saying in the Scandinavian countries is 'there's no such thing as bad weather just bad clothing,' so in the shop we have just taken delivery of a new range of Glenmuir half zip pullovers, some are lined to keep you warm and the wind out, and waterproofs to keep you dry, both ladies and gents sizes are available.
The New Under Armour range of winter clothing is available with fleece lined pullovers, body warmers, lined trousers and waterproofs. So if you want to keep playing throughout the year keeping dry and warm, then come into the shop and see the great winter clothing range we can offer you.
Pace of play
Plan your shot before you get to your ball
Once you are off the tee, think ahead. Determine your yardage and make your club selection before it is your turn to play. Very often, you can do this while others are playing, without disruption. If you take your glove off between shots, have it back on before it is your turn to play. Even a small step like this saves time.
Morley Smith and I are holding an event on Sunday 27th September at 7.00pm where we will be taking you through our Spanish Adventure which we completed earlier this year. The evening will consist of a three course meal, choosing from a French, Spanish or English menu, and us reliving our adventure in a funny (hopefully), light hearted way.
The evening will cost £20 per person of which £3 will go to the Captain's Charity. If you would like to join us for this fun evening please contact the Golf Club bar.
