Captains Corner : April

 I’m sure we’re all glad to be back to golf, although for many of us it’s reminder about how hard golf is!

I was delighted to attend Captain Judy’s Drive in last Friday; she is a credit to the club. She’ll have a fantastic year.

Both men’s leagues are to go ahead this year with the first match being in the Newcastle and District League away to Newbiggin on Thursday 29th April; we are traditionally have the best support in the league, I look forward to seeing our regulars plus a few more, if you can make it – there’s some good stuff to watch! I’ll keep you up-to-date with team selection and results.

Good news that Craig, our Head Greenkeeper, will be up to full strength this month with the addition of Mark. Craig’s made tremendous progress in the short and difficult time he’s had to date, but we’ll be reaping the rewards of the team’s effort once the temperatures begin to rise.

Myself and President Bill Gibson are meeting new members where we can, to introduce them to the club, if you see a few new names on the timesheet make yourself known and give them a warm welcome, they much appreciate it.

Finally congratulations to John Blackburn on achieving honorary membership status after 50 years of membership. Well done John!



First match is tonight (29th April) in the Newcastle and District Golf League.

We’re away to Newbiggin.
