Captain’s Newsletter – May 2019
My Captaincy is now into the third month and I would like to take this opportunity to say how honoured I was to be elected Captain of the Club for the 2019 – 2020 season. Like most golf clubs we are in challenging times, but rest assured that the Council and myself are working hard to increase income and reduce expenditure. We hope to introduce hole sponsorship and corporate membership initiatives soon and this weekend sees our first “Promotions Day” where we encourage prospective new members to come along, try the course and speak with members.
I would like to welcome all our new members to the club and hope they settle in well. If there’s anything I can help you with please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
As the golfing season is now in full swing it is good to hear from everyone how well they feel the course is looking. Certainly the introduction of mandatory fairway mats has helped in this regard, and Council will be reviewing their use again for next winter. I would ask that everyone takes a little time to repair their pitchmarks on the green and divots on the fairway as this is important for the appearance of the course and also help out Richard Fulton and his team.
It is good to see that the number of insurance claims from our neighbours have declined this last year, but please remember to take special care when hitting your shots from the 1st fairway and from the 2nd tee. If you do hit a ball out of bounds the book behind the bar should be completed for insurance purposes.
I would also like to remind members of the reciprocal arrangements we have with other clubs, namely Prestwick, Bonnyton, Loudoun, Strathaven, Williamwood and Cawder, to which Council are looking to add other courses. These arrangements allow our members to play these courses at much reduced rates and vice versa. Full details are on the back page of the Membership Card and Fixture List for 2019 – 2020, and also on the noticeboard.
On the social side of things look out for forthcoming events and do try to get up to the club to enjoy this part of your membership – I can attest they are very enjoyable and would certainly recommend them. Members may also hire our facilities for their own parties free of charge, be it birthday celebrations, anniversary, christening etc – just see the Secretary to check availability.
We have quite a busy June ahead, with St Cuthbert Day and the Par 3 Charity Competition taking place on Saturday 8th June, the Mixed Foursomes Open on Sunday 9th June and the Armed Forces Open on Friday 28th June. I believe there are some spaces left so get yourself booked in if you fancy one or more of these.
Finally, may I wish you all an enjoyable season and competitors every success.
