Vice Captain’s Texas Scramble report & results
Vice Captain’s Texas Scramble
I should just like to thank all of you who were able to participate in this event last Sunday. On the day 22 teams of 4 players went out with prizes being given to the first 7 teams, the last team and the best front and back nines. It was good to see a wide spectrum of members playing from all sections of the Club.
A number of prizes were generously donated for a raffle which together with a fun card game raised over £180 towards a defibrillator which will be held at the Club and remain available in case of need for players out on the course.
During the prize giving, what started as a generous gesture by one individual, turned into an avalanche with almost all the prize money eventually being donated back towards this excellent cause.
Whilst I would certainly not expect these acts of generosity to be the norm, because any victory in golf is terribly hard won, and the rewards deserved, I am overwhelmed by the manner of the Long Sutton members who responded in this way on the day. As a cautionary note however, if any of the winners feel that they had been overtaken by the euphoria of the day, or by peer pressure, to make these donations, then their vouchers will be available in the Proshop to collect until 8th August.
The weather was kind with many people able to eat their lunch outside on the patio; whilst others took the opportunity to have their family join them for a carvery meal in the restaurant.
The course was in great shape and is a credit to the Long Sutton management team.
My thanks go to all the people behind the scenes whose help made the day the success it was.

Introducing Mike Poole – Vice Captain 2014
Mike Poole – Vice Captain 2014
Hello to all Long Sutton Golf Club members. It is more than halfway through my year as Vice Captain and I am very conscious that although I know a lot of the members I have really only skimmed the surface of the membership, despite being a member at LSGC for just over 20 years.
So this is by way of introduction to those of you who do not know me. You will be able to recognise me by way of my picture above and I will be pleased for any of you to introduce yourselves to me if you see me in the Clubhouse and I shall welcome any constructive comments that you have on the operations of the Club.
I have had an enjoyable and challenging year so far supporting your current Captain, Phil Lock. Challenging in regard to the impacts of the bad weather over Winter, and helping to set up the new Men’s Section, and enjoyable in watching our flooded course recover into the superb condition it is in today. I know that the management and staff are fully committed to future improving the course as far as possible and with your support and involvement I am sure we can continue to be proud members of Long Sutton Golf Club
I take over as Captain in October and look forward to representing the members, both with the management of Long Sutton and of course to the other Golf Clubs and organisations with which we interface.
