Captain's Newsletter December 2021
Well the last newsletter of 2021 even though I am now writing it in 2022. It's been another funny year with Covid dominating the beginning and end of 2021. It was a shame that some of the festivities had to be cancelled but I hope you all had a very enjoyable Christmas with your family & friends. Unfortunately I tested positive for the virus on the 18th so had to isolate over the festive season. I was sad that Bob Bailey decided to step down as chair of handicaps. He has done a fantastic job over the last few years and like me I am sure you will thank him for all the time & effort he put in to it.
The new paths on 3, 5 & 6 are really looking good and are a great asset to the course.
More areas that become persistently wet in the winter have been roped off to prevent damage by trollies and unnecessary footfall.
Again this will help to protect the course.
New faces on the bunkers at the fifth hole are taking shape and should look really good on completion
I am sure there will be some January bargains in the shop so pop in and see Craig.
I am glad to say that Peter Morris has put his name forward to fill the role as Secretary and I think he will be a great asset to the club going forward. Nick Johnson has also agreed to fill in as chair of handicaps and again I think he will be a great asset to the club. I am sure, like me, you will want to support them when it needs to be ratified at the A.G.M.
So we still have vacancies for Head of house and Treasurer. The roles have been scaled down in terms of hands on so if any one maybe interested in either of these then please speak to Ron, Jan or Steve.
Happy New Year to you all and I do hope that we are now seeing an end to this pandemic. Let's hope for a relative dry January (you can take that whichever way you want) and enjoyable golf.
