Gents Invitation to Ladies and Pro/Captain Challenge
Thank you to all who took part in todays fun event, the Gents invitation to Ladies which was held in horrible conditions, however all that played appeared to enjoy the day with some above average scores being posted.
Congratulations to Clive Lewis and Janet Gordon who won the event with an outstanding 67 beating Simon Smith and Krem Saunders with an impressive 69. Well played all.
It was nice to see such a vibrant atmosphere in the Clubhouse and thank you to all who stayed for the presentation, hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for future events, which leads me onto Friday 22nd October, The Pro/Captain Challenge Trophy.
All participants are welcome to attend for Bacon Butties and Coffee from 10:00 hours before proceeding to their allocated tees ready to commence a shotgun start at 11:30 hours. Don't worry if you are not already aware where you'll be starting, there'll be a list on display on the day. Beer will be served on the completion of your round and the hot Pork Rolls and Eton Mess will be served once the golf is complete. Festivities will begin thereafter with the presentation of prizes followed by live music by the Snogs. Look forward to seeing you all there.

Next week is the Turkey Trot and it is currently open for entries on V1/HDiD. This is followed by the Gents Invitation to Ladies on the 17th October 2021 and there is a sign up sheet in the foyer. On Sunday 24th October 2021 there is a Gents Texas Scramble and I will put the entry sheet up on the notice board this week. I am trying another new format for this scramble as everyone is aware, they're a fun competition and to add to the fun, all players will be required to get 3 drives in, however, each player will be required to use there 3 drives on a Par 3 a Par 4 and a Par 5.
