Captain's Newsletter

To all you new members who joined us recently, I send a very warm welcome to Bexleyheath Golf Club and hope to see you playing and entering our competitions and friendly games if you have not done so already. Basically put three cards in, get a handicap and away you go. Just look at the lists in the lobby and on the Captains Board and enter your name.
Not sure where to start? Try the Mens Swindle on Tuesday's and Thursday's 10.45am and Lady members on Wednesday mornings and Saturday.
The Ladies also have mixed competitions which we support and again have a look for these as well.

Into July already and Graham and I are busy organising the Danson Festival with very little time to spare until the weekend when the Festival starts on Saturday 7th July and finishes on Sunday 8th July. We are in the main Marquee promoting our Club, so come along and help man the stall, give out our flyers or just pay us a visit. Lots of entertainment during the two days so hope to see some of you there.

May through to June has seen some good golf at the club with excellent scores winning our Cups and Trophies. Some mixed results in the Vets league but under John Hubbard's guidance we are holding our own and still in with a chance of retaining our Title in the league.
Terry Cook and Mike Horwood have also managed to keep the Vets competitions going with good numbers playing in them. If you are over 60 you are more than welcome to enter. They are mainly Board Competitions so now is your chance to get your name up there on one of them in the Spike Bar.

Our Friendlies this year have been a struggle to recruit players but so far with the exception of Sidcup which we will try again later in the summer to organise, we have managed to get enough players. Again all members are welcome, just put your name down on the list on the Captains Board. Normally coffee on arrival and a two course dinner, with wine, port and coffee for around £18 depending on where we are playing.

My Charity Day is on Friday 3rd August and already the entries for the golf are coming in thick and fast so if you still fancy putting in a four ball don't wait too long. £120 per team.
Have a close look at the entry sheet in the Lobby as one or two teams still need a player or two if you can not make a four ball up. Four ball stableford, yellow ball competition, nearest pins and a two course meal to be taken as you finish your round.

Presentation of prizes, raffle and Auction (7.30pm) Liam Smith will be hosting the Auction and no doubt entertaining us all as well. We then have Andy Robertson singing and playing his guitar from 9.30pm till late.
Please bring your partners along for the evening, there is no charge for the evening entertainment and it should turn out to be a great day and a great night dancing to Andy Robertson. Dress Code smart casual.

I have also put up a “Sponsor a hole” list for £50 a hole to go towards the charity, Julie will laminate any advertisement you may want to put out on the Tee.
Donations are more than welcome for the auction and raffle for my charity and as most of you know Evergreen Care Bexley is local and in these days of less funding coming from Government to councils they now fill the void where Bexley Council can not help our elderly. They really do need our support.

Happy Golfing
Captain Tony
