Captain Graham's August Update

I would like to thank you for your fantastic support of my Captains day on the 2nd August. The day went so smoothly, and a big thank you to all those who donated, sponsored and helped to ensure that this happened, especially Julie, James, Liam, Rob, Chris and my family.

The course was in a fantastic condition and the catering and Bar excellent, so another big thank you. The day continued into the evening with the raffle, auction (well done Liam for your entertainment and as our superb MC) and entertainment by Germaine Murray. Finally what an incredible result in raising nearly £10,000 for my charities,

THANK YOU.

The whole of my Captains week was very well supported and congratulations to the winners of the Captains Prizes as follows: Vets: Ian Menzies 40 points, Ladies: Janet John 34 points. and Men: Mario Innecco 40 points.

Congratulations to our Vet team who continue to represent the club to a very high standard and continue to achieve success in the North Kent league with the Club team beating Shooters Hill GC at Home by 3.5 games to 1.5, and Lullingstone GC away 4-1 and unfortunately losing away to Sidcup GC in by 4-1.

Congratulations to our Green Keepers and Greens committee for the excellent condition of the course. And I make no apology in reminding members that we must continue to play out part in keeping the course in its excellent state so may I remember members to use the designated entry and exits to tees, replace divots, repair pitch marks and Tee box divots and dispose of litter in the appropriate bins, even if the divots etc. are not yours!

As always, a very special thanks to Julie our Secretary for all her hard work behind the scenes and for the support from our Past Captains and the House and General Committees and for the guidance of our President Harry and Chairman Robin who continue with their efforts to develop the club and facilities. I have been pleased to see so many members participating in the club and various sections competitions and may I again encourage all members to take part in them, they are great fun! Please check the notices boards in the foyer and changing rooms for dates of events and competitions and information. If you are interested in playing in either club or friendly matches please let me know and I will pass your name on to the appropriate person.

Another area of success is in the increase in Green Fees. Many of the visitors I have spoken to have remarked on the friendly reception they receive and the great course and club house. So well done to everyone and keep the welcome going as these players are potential new members.

Please keep August Bank Holiday Monday free as we are aiming to have a Mixed game in the morning followed by a family B-B-Q in the afternoon with various family activities.

Please come and support the club.
