How time flies! I am already a quarter of the way through my "reign" and am pleased to say that the glorious weather I had on my drive in has so far stuck with me for my recent events, the most important being my daughter’s wedding.
The condition and presentation of the golf course continues to receive high praise from all that play. However I do know that Mark and his team have set themselves high targets and challenges - irrigation, bunkers to name just two - and ones that will be achieved as we go forward.
The clubhouse with the magnificent efforts by members in decorating and the introduction of new furniture and lighting has been transformed, resulting in an environment where you are happy to sit and enjoy a drink and a meal.
In terms of performances on the course, the Ladies have achieved THE result of the season to date, winning two Leicestershire and Rutland Shields, the Scratch and Bronze division at the competition held at Scraptoft. Congratulations to all involved.
Unfortunately other results to date, particularly the Men's Scratch and H4H teams have not gone our way, we can only improve!
I am now looking forward to my "Away Day" and upcoming Captains Day and hope that members will support my evening on the 8th July, a BBQ and Disco, very casual, which will hopefully further my Charity appeal. Please have a go on the raffle, with some great prizes on offer, which have been further enhanced with a mountain bike and very apt for the current weather - an ice cream maker. The raffle board is in the Professional's shop.
