The amount in brackets shows the value of the voucher you have won - this amount has been credited to your membership card for use at the Club shop.

At their most recent meeting, the Club Committee agreed to adjust the Divisions for the medals to make them a bit more equal – at the moment Division 3 is very small, and Division 2 much bigger, so we will be testing out moving the dividing line, probably to handicap 18. We did this for the February Medal, which had a great entry of 50 players, and it led to divisions of 13, 23 and 14, when in the previous three months there had been no more than 7 in Division 3.

DAILY MAIL FOURSOMES

Dave Brown and Phil Gardner will represent the men and Sefton Hooton and Amanda Chong the ladies in this year’s Daily Mail Foursomes.

AIR COMPRESSOR CLEANER

You may have noticed that work is ongoing by Rich Price and his team to install an air compressor cleaner outside the changing room.  We are looking forward to using it!

CHANGES TO THE CLUB AND SUBSCRIPTIONS

You should have received an individual letter or e-mail about your membership of the Club.  It would be really helpful to us if you could reply to this as soon as possible.  If you haven’t received one, please contact Bob Wolfson on 01452 790831 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please remember that if you haven’t set up a Standing Order to pay your £35 Club subscription, you need to do so, or to pay by cheque or cash, before the end of March.  We have identified that 36 members weren’t able to cancel their Standing Orders into the old bank account, and we will be in touch with them in due course so that we can get their subscriptions in the right place for next year.

CALENDAR FOR 2019-2020

As we are moving the membership year to coincide with the playing year, we will be providing you with a Club calendar when you renew your subscription in March 2019.  To fill the gap, there is a printed calendar on Club noticeboards.  ALL FIXTURES AND EVENTS THROUGH TO APRIL 2020 ARE NOW ON THE CLUB NEWS CALENDAR ON THE WEBSITE.

CLUB FINANCES

At the most recent Committee meeting, our Treasurer Hanif Bhula reported that at the end of December 2018, the Club had achieved a surplus for the year of £777, leaving a balance of £13, 738 to carry forward.  

ESTABLISHMENT OF THE COMPETITIONS AND HANDICAPS COMMITTEE

We have now set up this Committee, chaired by Steve Yemm, so that we have a better handle on organising our competitions and overseeing members’ handicaps. The Committee has held two meetings so far. Some of the issues arising are:

  • Reviewing arrangements for each competition – the Committee is reviewing the terms of each competition, and any revisions will be publicised and recorded on the Club section of the website
  • Referee/s for finalist days –  the Committee is suggesting that all major club knock-out finals, such as the Founders and Summer Pairs should have a referee from the H and C Committee.  
  • Trialling two starters – one booking in, with second starter on 1sttee – will be tested out for the next few medal rounds in order to get a ‘smoother’ start to medals.

COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP

The Committee is elected at the Annual General Meeting each March, following nominations that are invited from January onwards.  The Mens’ Club Captain chairs the Committee during his year of office.
