A very warm welcome to all our members, with thanks to our secretary for the kind introduction that was posted on the web site following the changes to the board of directors. As a result of Michael’s decision to move on to pastures new and our chairman Paul’s decision to stand down, I wish to thank them both, not only from the board of directors but from a personal point of view for all the effort and hard work that they have contributed to Ryton Golf Club over the past 4 years or so. A lot of the work done can quite easily be seen but much more goes on behind the scenes.
The club have advertised for a new secretary/manager and a number of applicants have expressed serious interest in the position.
We are hoping to start work on the new fencing system adjacent to the forth fairway later this month to prevent members of the public and golfers from entering the combustion area.
The summer golf session is almost upon us and this weekend saw our gents’ team entertain our rivals from Tyneside Golf Club and our ladies team travel to Prudhoe in the `Mail on Sunday` competition. I am pleased to say that both teams were successful – well done.
The gents weekend Fed-Ex competition is coming to a climax – good luck to all those playing in the finals.
Congratulations to Ray Archibald on his appointment as the seniors’ captain and to John Haddock as the vice captain – good luck to them both for the coming season
It is my intention to try to give you regular updates on the general goings on at the club on a monthly basis.
