Captain’s Newsletter – February 2019
February and the AGM is looming, my year is up, it has been an experience that I will always remember. I have had some ups and downs but, overall, I have enjoyed it and hope that I have contributed something to the Club.
The weather over the winter hasn’t been too bad and most Saturdays have seen the brave (some may say fool-hardy) getting their gear together and playing the course, which, I think you would all agree is in unbelievable condition. I am not a lover of the mats on the tees but respect the request to use them. I am in favour of mats on the fairways and I look forward to hearing from Rick about the difference that they have had over the winter to the coming season.
In the coming season, we have decided to have midweek medals on a Thursday, there will still be some of the major trophies on a Wednesday such as the JM McArthur, but the others will be on a Thursday, we hope that this will stop clashes between ladies, gents and visitors, again any feedback welcomed.
Another change for the new season is the minimum numbers required to make a competition valid, we have been discussing this and have listened to feedback as well as complaints. There is no set rule so we have decided to do away with the minimum numbers. If the course remains open and there are competitors who have finished it will remain a valid competition no matter the numbers that complete on the day. This is for Saturday, midweek or couples games, the rule book will be amended to reflect this change.
At our penultimate meeting the committee had loads of ideas and loads of things we would like to do but we need HELP! So we thought about trying to start up a few sub-committees, for example:
- Set up and run the Shop at the Club
- Look at the Club website, with a view to change / update
- An events or promotional group/membership recruitment/corporate sponsorship/corporate events/anything like that.
- Advertisement/marketing group
None of these are set in stone and there may not be a need for more than 2 but what we talked about was the amount of untapped talent in the Club that we are not using. So if you want to be a part of something and not be tied to the committee then this might be for you, have a think about it and perhaps you can come up with something, anyway, we want more people involved.
The proposed fees have been announced and I hope that everyone is pleased with the work that has gone into getting the best result we can. The Club cannot stay still, we must move forward and we need to continue to improve our offering, we have to be the place potential new members want to join, we have a great product, our course, we just need to try and get everything else in place to make our Club even better.
Our House Convenor is working hard to put on other events throughout the year and I hope that perhaps we might see some new faces appear, the nights are always great fun and the bands have always been first class, so why not take the plunge and give it a go.
After the AGM, in fact the next night, is our Burns’ Supper. I hope that if there is a space available you will find the time to come out and hear some excellent speakers and listen to a night of blether, song and good company.
