New Season – a message from the Gents Captain

Dear Gents,

Well who could believe it but the new golf season is upon us and fingers crossed we have no snow.  It has been fantastic to be able to get up to the club over the last few weeks to blow off those cobwebs and to even start playing in adhoc stablefords. (I wish I hadn’t having been cut a shot before the season has started).  The course is already looking and playing well which bodes well for the rest of the season.

I thought I would just send out a few words as this years Gents Captain and wish everyone the best of luck for the season ahead and lets see your handicaps come crashing down.  I am looking forward to working alongside Fran and Shirley as Ladies Captain and Norman as Senior Captain and wish them all the best for the coming season.

We have the Captain V Chairman competition this coming Saturday 5th April Teeing off at 10 am so please dust of your clubs and get yourself involved.  It is a 9 hole comp with a social afterwards.

The season starts for real the following day with the April Medal so it is now all to play for.

Once again GOOD LUCK to you all for the season and please if you have any problems get in touch.


Iain THOMPSON – Gents Captain.

Volunteer Working Party

Well the excitement of the Chairman v Captain season opener (5th April 10.00 meet) is almost upon us, but there are a couple of things you need to know about also:

Working Party – on Saturday 12th meet 10.00 To Strim and Rake the Plantation with a view to improving the presentation of the course at the start of the season. Anyone with a power strimmer is encouraged to come along and others plaes come prepared to rake and collect the cut grass.

Match v Tynedale GC – We are due to play a Ladies & Gents match away to Tynedale on Saturday 26th April. The teams comprise six Ladies and six Gents and the Ladies have already filled their allocation! At the moment we need TWO Gents to complete the six man team. Places will be allocated on a first come basis, so if you fancy some fun on Tyne Green e-mail your Captain Iain Thompson –

Many thanks for your time, and see you at these events!


Start of the season

As we emerge from a surprisingly mild winter (fingers still crossed) it is time to look forward to the 2014 playing season here at the Golf Club.

For Gents and Lady menbers there is the traditional Captain v Chairman match on 5th April, meeting at the clubhouse at 10.00.

For Junior members the first event of the season is the April Junior Medal on 12th April.

Those members who have not yet renewed for this year are reminded that it is important to do so as soon as possible to ensure participation in club competitions.

With this flying start (weather wise) we look forward to a bumper year on the course and I personally look forward to meeting up with members old and new once again.

Enjoy your golfing!
