Captain Graham's June Update

A special thank you to our Green Keepers and Greens committee for the excellent condition of the course. Please remember we all have a part to play in keeping the course in its excellent state so may I ask all members to 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!

Congratulations to our Club and Vet teams who have started the season well with the Club team beating Dartford G C in the North Kent Trophy by 4 games to 1, and then beating Sidcup GC in the Yeomans by 2 to1. The Vets team beat Sidcup G C in the league match by 4 ½ to ½ and look to continue their winning run with a match against Lullingston GC at Home on Friday the 14th June 2019. I am sure any support would be very welcome. The club friendly against Dartford on the 23 May resulted in a win for Bexleyheath by 3½ to2 ½, a big thank you for those who represented the club. Our next friendly is on Thursday 13th June away against Cherry Lodge and again a thank you for those who have put their names down to play. My personal thanks to Roy Jackson who is acting as Team Manager and doing a very efficient job.

Again, thank you for the support from our Past Captains in the absence of a Vice Captain. I am hopeful I may be able to fill this position sooner rather than later, please contact the President Harry Wanless if you would like to know more about the position. As Captain you are the representative of a Great Club, have the opportunity of meeting other Captains and playing at many different clubs. There is a Social aspect to involving partners so an opportunity that I can honestly say is not to be missed and it is apparent that you make many new and long-lasting friendships. It is impossible for one person to do everything and that is another reason why having a Vice Captain in place is useful!! Please therefore may I ask members to give the idea of becoming Vice Captain this some thought and consideration. Our members and committees support each other and will support you if you decide to volunteer. The club led by the House and general committees and the guidance of our President Harry and Chairman Robin continue to develop the club and facilities and I am sure we will continue to be successful in the future.

It is great to see so many members participating in the club and various sections competitions and may I 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.

From those who attended the Sunday Lunch a big thank you to Nikki and her team for an excellent meal. The list for the next meal 21st July 2019 will soon appear on the notice board so please sign up to avoid disappointment. The Motown Nights evening was a great success, many thanks to all who attended.
There have been a few changes to planned entertainment events and a revised list will be issued soon. 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. Information will follow ASAP.

Enjoy the good weather - regards Captain Graham
