Presidents Half Year Post

2019

PRESIDENTS POST 2019

We are nearly half-way through the year so I thought it opportune to keep all members up to date with matters at your golf club.

  • Outside around the golf club a significant amount of landscaping has been undertaken. It is our intention to cap these areas with top soil and then let nature take its course with grassing over.
  • Our land owner Ian Hill has finished all the internal / external developments so areas such as the new ladies locker room/toilets and mens shower areas are now ready to use.
  • The area outside the bar area is complete with a glass surround and offers wonderful views over the golf course and surrounding areas.
  • The “new” trolley store is nearly complete and once finished I will get Martyn to contact all paying users so that a power point can be issued. For those who would like to use the store , please see Martyn. I think the annual cost for usage and power is £50, very reasonable.
  • Once we have moved out of the existing trolley store the intention is to use this as a locker space with a re-organisation to the entrance/booking in area.
  • The area around the compressor has been tidied upend chipping put down. Please keep this area tidy . It all adds to the general appearance of the golf course.
  • The club, through offering sponsorship deals will be installing new course furniture in the form of new tee signage and ball washers. We have had a great uptake and thank all sponsors.
  • These sponsorship packages will allow us to improve the overall appearance of your golf club.
  • As in all cases to make things happen quickly the club needs support from its membership. If anyone can spare an hour or two to help we still need more stone pickers, we will need people to help with the trolley store move and just general duties such as sweeping the passageway, keeping the compressor area tidy and gardening duties. Every little helps. Please contact me (Len Stott on 07776498394) if you are prepared to help.

Thank You

President
