Captain’s Newsletter – August 2019
Dear Fellow Members,
We are almost into September, days are getting shorter, where has the year gone? The summer has been good to us, very warm but sometimes very wet. Our St Cuthbert Day, same day as our Par 3 competition, our popular Armed Forces Day, the Spirit AeroSpace Day and our 4-Ball Better Ball Open competition all benefited from the glorious weather, making these days more enjoyable than ever.
I am sure you will agree our course has been fantastic throughout this season and massive thanks and praise go to Richard and his team for all their dedication and hard work. Every visitor to our course has nothing but positive comments on its stunning condition, something we must build upon.
Alan and Liz have now established themselves in our kitchen, food has been great and they both have big plans for St Cuthbert, with theme nights and a full winter programme to keep things ticking over. Watch the noticeboards for upcoming events and book in early.
Mark Watt, this year’s Club Champion, along with some help from a couple of Council members has been doing some terrific work in marketing our club. We have taken out a membership advertising drive in the very popular Bunkered magazine and also a full-blown advertising campaign with Scottish Golf. A very positive step forward.
It is disappointing that the social side of our club is poorly supported, we need to find out why!! The last 2 club dances have been poorly attended and, with the cancellation of the Sportsman’s Dinner, this has put a dent on our current finances. It’s easy, it’s YOUR club, it needs YOUR support.
We are currently looking at the installation of a golf simulator, we have done our homework and these are proving very popular and a really good income generator. Some of our neighbouring clubs (Loudoun Gowf, Gailes, Belleisle) have them installed and are very pleased with the uptake. Gourock has installed 2 simulators to keep up with demand. There is talk of a winter league being played on the simulator, a bit of fun and a good income generator. We will keep you all up to date with the progress.
Although we have a few hurdles in our way, with some good planning I am sure we will come through better than ever. The Council are doing some great work which takes up a lot of their time, if you feel you are able to assist, or have any ideas then please come forward. This is everybody’s club.
We have a terrific course and an excellent membership base. Let’s move onwards and upwards and take us from strength to strength. Remember, it’s YOUR club, it needs YOUR support.
John Irvine, Captain
