FIXTURES – Next Sunday’s competition for the men will be the much anticipated “Voucher”, with the winner receiving a free membership voucher for the year or the price of an adult single membership deducted from a family membership. The format will be 18 hole Strokeplay. You must be a member in good standing for 2020 to be eligible to win first prize, so please pay any outstanding memberships this week.
The club will be holding a fundraiser for the club itself over the August Bank Holiday weekend, the format will be decided during the week.
COURSE – The “Putt Buddy” devices were felt to be causing too much damage to the playing surface of the greens, so they have been removed for the time being with the cups being partially filled with foam instead. Please take care on removing your ball to avoid touching the cup with your hand.
COMMISERATIONS – The club extends its sympathies to the family of the late Joe Mahon, who passed away this weekend.
