PRESIDENTS POST

HALF SEASON UPDATE

18 July 2018


We are approximately half way though this years golfing season, and to date we have been hit by the Beast from the East, followed by one of the driest Spring /Summers on record. However through all of this, our amazing ground staff - ‘the thee J’s - Joe, Jethro and John’ have worked tirelessly to provide us, the members, a playable course in good order. Thank you to the 3 ‘J’ s.


The teams this year have been performing well. Unfortunately, however we have not entered a scratch team in the Bradford Golf Union.


The 8-15s ably run by Jethro Wilson are finding their division a little tough-next to bottom as I speak. However the Rabbits led by your Vice - Captain and Rabbits Captain Mick Hawksworth are second in their division with two rounds of games remaining and are in with more than a good chance of getting promoted - well done to all involved.

Your Captain for 2018 Mike Dobson is doing a sterling job juggling his post of Competition Secretary with his major role of Captain - well done Mike.


You will notice that the entrances to the lockers and trollies have been tidied up and painted - our thanks go to Eddie Shuttleworth. This is an area where I think we can improve the general appearance of the golf club with a little help from a few more members. I am not asking you to spend half your life up here, although some of you do. I know how extremely busy you all are, but a little help of half an hour here and there will help us to improve the general appearance. Phil Barsby currently does a grand job keeping the locker room clean and tidy, but we could do with some assistance on the following tasks :-

  • Trimming shrubs round the putting green.
  • Tidying of the compressor area.
  • Sweeping up the pathways.
  • Vacuuming of the bar area.
  • Emptying bins.

Spread between a number of people these tasks will be minimal.

If you do have the time and energy to support the club in these areas, please give me a call - my telephone number is 07776 498394 (mobile) or 01535 656919 (home) or catch up with me on the course or in the bar.


We should be looking to increase our membership. We currently have some fantastic deals on offer. If you know of anyone looking to take up golf, or currently play golf and need a new challenge, bring them along for a free round to showcase our course. For further information please see Martyn Twigg or use the contact link on the homepage.

 

Our website is also a good point of reference for keeping up to date with all golf club matters, ably run by Keith and Susan Butler. The more times you visit the website the better our ranking-please visit.


That’s all from me. Enjoy your golf for the rest of the year.


PRESIDENT : LEONARD STOTT
