Comments from the Chair : Chairmans Blog October 2015

Sorry I'm late! Busy, busy, busy!

That's it then. Done and dusted for another year. Accounts are being prepared as we speak. The final figures will be very interesting baring in mind the cost of the fire!

The Board has basically 2 more meetings prior to the AGM and we have some very interesting and important decisions to make on what we intend to take to the members. I believe the club is doing well and if it wern't for the pesky fire......... who knows!

This weekend we reinstate "winter golf" with all that it brings! We remain on greens for as long as we can but we certainly need to think about the protection of our wonderful course. I ask you to think about the use of mats (before it becomes compulsory) on fairways as every divot is damage to be repaired from now on, as the grass will not easily repair itself due to the temperature and therefroe lack of growth.

I am however looking forward to the revamped "FedEx" comp which sees a separate comp on Saturdays and Sundays to allow more people to qualify for the "Shotgun Start" finals at the end of March (72 on each day!). I personally love the fact that we have created 2 different courses at the club and therefore 2 different challenges. It's exciting!

Tonight I am going to the Hadrain League presentation evening to pick up our 2 Trophies! The "Nett Team" winners and the "Singles Nett" winner (Matt Turton). I am really looking forward to that. We deserve it for all of the hard work and I am very proud! Next week is the NDL league presentation and then we move towards our own presentation in November.

I hope that you are all pleased with the way the club has opperated this year. To be honest there have been very few (direct) grumbles! So thanks for that. We do have challenges ahead but ........ it keeps us on our toes I guess. My thoughts now turn to the AGM and the nominations for the new board! I ask myself the question time and time again "Shall I run for office for yet another year?". Please have a chat when you see me and let me know what you think!

Have a good winter!
