The Captain's Log - June 2017





June was not as busy as the previous month, but here are the highlights of my month when representing the club.

Thursday 8th June
Invited by Steve Weeks (current Dartford Captain) to play in their Past Captains Golf Day. We played in a three-ball with John Drummond (Shooters Hill ) and we came 2nd with 77 points.

Friday 16th June
Paired with Vice Captain Tony for the Vets Team at home to Lullingstone. We won our match ‘2 up’, but more importantly the team won 4-1. Even more importantly, the Lullingstone team all commented on how good our course was, so well done to our Greenkeepers and the Greens Committee.

Friday 23rd June
This should have been Club Invitation Day. Very disappointed that it had to be cancelled as there were only 6 names on the sign up sheet.

Thursday 29th June
Partnered VC Tony in the club friendly match at Cherry Lodge.

Friday 30th June
I attended Headway’s own charity golf day at Barnehurst GC. Best golf I’ve played this year, coming 2nd with 45 points.

Although my ‘log’ is done by calendar month, I don’t think that I can let this one pass without making comment about the Captain’s First Dance on Saturday 1st July. I have had many comments from those who were there that night – all saying that it was one of the best nights they can remember at Bexleyheath.

During the next few weeks:

Thursday 20th July – we have a Club Friendly at home to Shooters Hill (first tee at 2:30pm). We are short of numbers at the moment, so if you are available, please add your name to the list on the Captain’s noticeboard just outside the lounge doors.

Captain’s Charity Day – This was originally scheduled for Friday 4th August, but because the new catering arrangements don’t officially start until mid-August, the Charity Day has been moved to 18th August, which will be the Friday of Captain’s week. A list will be up in the lobby soon, but in the meantime, any offers of hole sponsorship, raffle or auction prizes would be very gratefully received.



Best wishes
