With the New Captain’s in place we must not forget all the hard work Digby, Mike and Gill put in last year, and we look forward to what Olly, John and Eliza have to offer.
Last year was a good year for the Men’s section with the A team gaining promotion in the Avalon League and also reaching the semi-final of the Pickeridge Cup, but the highlight for me was the incredible performance to reach the Bowl Final only losing out on the third extra play off hole.
The Seniors have also been performing well at county level with Individuals and teams winning prizes in the County Senior Autumn meeting. Not to be out done our Ladies finished runners up in their League, so a good season by all sections.
There have been many fine individual performances during the year with prizes at all levels being spread across the membership.
The annual St Margaret’s Hospice Day raised a staggering £19,500: congratulations to all who took part and supported this event.
The course continues to improve with work carried out to paths, tees and drainage on going. It is important that we the members realise that we need to support the club both in the bar and pro shop in appreciation of this continued investment by the management.
A notice has been posted about running a driving range target competition and it is hoped to get this up and running after Christmas.
Socially there are still some places available at the Christmas Cabaret Dinner which is to be held on Tuesday 21st December. Tickets for Burns Night go on sale 1st December and in February we have a Dinner Cabaret night with Barry Paul alias Elvis.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of the club for there ongoing support and wish you all a happy Christmas and New Year and lets make next year the best ever for this club.
