Captain’s Newsletter – October 2019
We are nearing the end of our season with the daylight time getting shorter and dark nights “drawing in”. Our course has been fantastic throughout the season, with latterly only a couple of days lost to the persistent rainfall. The sheer volume of water that fell tripped our pump at the 8th during the night and left us with a flooded fairway that took a day or so to drain away.
Competitions are all finished now and our focus turns to the organisation of the Gents Annual Dinner & Prizegiving on Friday 25th October (the Ladies Prizegiving is on Friday 1st November). My sincere thanks go to David Brown, who has done a tremendous job all season controlling all our competitions. Thanks David.
The winter will soon be upon us and with the kitchen and the bar are doing well at the moment we don’t want to halt that momentum by closing at 4 o’clock during the winter months, so for November and December we are going to stay open longer than we normally do. Meetings have been held with both Angie (bar) and Liz (kitchen) and we all in agreement to trying something a little different this year.
Here are our plans, I hope you find them as pleasing as we do and give your club as much support as possible through our quieter months.
Monday – Kitchen will be closed, everyone needs a day off, so this will be the kitchen staff unless we have a specific event, then they are more than happy to come in and provide kitchen cover. We may also look at closing the bar, but Angie does all her paperwork on a Monday so she will be here whether the bar is open or not.
Tuesday – Kitchen will be doing special menu for quiz night, bar will stay open accordingly. Quiz night is fortnightly but we will run with this weekly for now.
Wednesday – Kitchen and bar will close early as it’s usually quiet. Closing time will be 5pm. If there is a request for later hours for kitchen or bar for a function or any other booking these will be accommodated.
Thursday will now be a “Thursday Theme” night. This could be a curry night, pasta night, seafood night, steak night etc. This will be managed by the kitchen and advertised in advance, hopefully this will be popular and bar will stay open to suit.
Friday and Saturday will be normal late opening for both kitchen and bar. The dining room will be closed off and Alan and Liz will be offering a-la-carte dining in the dining room with special menus and full table service, even for drinks; our bar staff are more than happy to support this. A full dining experience, seated in the dining room with excellent food and service.
Sunday is going to be another new experience for St Cuthbert, we will be running a carvery. First one will be Sunday 27th October, watch this space for booking and cost details.
These are big changes for St Cuthbert for the quieter winter months in an attempt to make them a little less quieter and keep generating the much needed revenue in to club funds.
Our next events are our first Firework Night, on Friday 8th November, with kids disco and the return of the very popular Gerry Anderson. Tickets for both are selling well and both should be great nights. Hope to see you there!
John Irvine, Captain
