Hello and welcome to this week's newsletter
It's been a wet and windy week at the club. The leaves are starting to fall which places more importance on those straight tee shots. You will notice that the autumn work is looking nearly complete. The tees and run off's are starting to be cut to size and the sand has been put in the bunkers. This gives a much better impression of how the holes will look and play. In the greens meeting on Monday, Ray and his team were optimistic that the course will be fully opened within the next 4-6 weeks.
Here are just a few pictures taken this week of the 3rd fairway and 2nd green
It was a busy Sunday for the juniors last week as the David Hall finals
took place. The competition brings together the finalists from each months medal to play for the main silverware. This year the defending champion was our Callum Brookes,
and in tricky conditions he retained his title with a 76.
Running alongside this was the Handicap Cup
which was won by Leo Bonser
. Leo, like Callum is a product of the Saturday morning classes and this year has seen him really push on with his golf. He was part of the team which won the development league and he has seen his handicap tumble.
Speaking of the academy development squad it was another good week for Josh Izod
as he collected another prize at the Gogg's Masters trophy
winning his age group with 34 points off a 20 handicap. Not bad for a 10 year old!
Last weekend it was fantastic to see Andy Sullivan cruising to a nine-shot win at the Portugal Masters!
