The Captain's Log - Stardate September 2017

Saturday 7th October – Maggie and I were pleased to attend Sidcup Golf Club’s Annual Dinner & Dance. Thanks to Jim Johnson (Sidcup Captain) and his wife Helen for their hospitality that evening.
Monday 9th October – With Captains Jim from Sidcup, Steve from Dartford and Richard from Cherry Lodge, I spent the day at Sunningdale GC where we were given courtesy of the course. I finished the course with the same ball that I started, but that doesn’t reflect the difficulty. If you didn’t reach, or went off the fairway, you could find your ball, but getting it out of the neatly clipped 4” heather was almost impossible.
Thursday 12th October – Eight of us from Bexleyheath travelled to Dartford for a Past Captains match. As Mike Stephens said after dinner, it was a (Dartford 5 – Bexleyheath 3) draw. As always at Dartford, we were well received, the course was in good condition, the food was excellent and a great day was had by all.
Friday 13th October – Last month we lost Hugh Holland – a longstanding member of our Vets Section, and of the Friday lunch club. Thirteen of us from Bexleyheath attended a celebration of his life at Eltham crematorium, where he was remembered by his family and friends.
Saturday 14th October – The second Dinner and Dance of the season was held at Shooters Hill GC. Magical Motown provided the musical entertainment, and special thanks go to Roger Witchlow and his wife Sandra for hosting the evening. Roger has taken on the captaincy until November following the departure of John Drummond earlier this year.
Tuesday 17th October – Attended the Jack Hicks AGM at Sidcup GC. This meeting agrees any additional new 9 hole clubs who wish to join next year and does the draw for the 1st round of the 2018 competition.
Saturday 21st October – Maggie and I were pleased to represent the Club at Shortlands Golf Club’s Annual Dinner & Dance – the last function of the year for Dave & Maggie Collen who are the 2016-17 Club and Ladies Captains. Entertainment was provided by the same group that played at Shooters Hill, but this time as their alter ego – Bitter & Twisted.
Saturday 28th October – Our Murder Mystery evening at the club. It was an excellent night with a very good attendance, including many people dressed to the theme. Thanks again to the Rosedon Players and especially Dave & Eric for organising the evening.

Best wishes
