Greetings golfers, 

Christmas Draw 

Christmas is approaching fast and it is time for us in the Pro Shop to focus on this important date! Therefore we have begun our popular Christmas Draw

The squares are £2 each and with less squares available than previous years you have a great chance of winning a great prize! First prize is a fantastic Motocaddy S1 Electric Trolley worth £300 and all the money taken is given back in prizes! 

The draw will take place before Christmas so it will be a nice present for somebody when I ring them all give them the good news. The draw will take place following the Christmas Texas Scramble on December 20th.

Titleist Personalised Golf Balls …. Great Christmas presents! 

If you are struggling for a present for your golfing loved one this Christmas why not take advantage of our Titleist golf ball offer with free personalisation? It is available on any model from the Titleist range of balls with a minimum order of just one dozen. 

Prices start from just £15.99 per dozen (DT Solo) and go up to £39.99 per dozen (Pro V1's). There are balls at the price points in between as well with Velocity balls at £19.99 per dozen and NXT Tour and Tour S at £29.99 per dozen. Each golf ball will come with your own personalised message printed on it which can be up to three lines of text (no logos) and is in black ink only. 

Ordering is very easy, simply click here and complete your details online. This automatically orders the balls direct with Titleist for you, or you could give us a ring at the club and we can put the order through for you. In both cases the golf balls will be delivered to the golf club and we will contact you to let you know when they have arrived.

Captains news 

From Men's Captain Neil Rimmer 

Good morning, exceptionally the winter league was cancelled for the second time this year last weekend due to inclement weather, this has been reset for the 13th December, let's hope it doesn't snow then too! Other than that it's a quiet time of year for golfing. 

Consequently I don't have much to report on, but I can mention the very successful quiz night the other weekend at the club. It was organised by Roger Mills and his awesome social committee and a large number of both golfers and non-golfers attended. Teri put on a great selection of curries to feed our minds, and Malcolm Sainsbury made a fantastic quizmaster and kept control of the rather unruly crowds. 

In an unusual appearance for winter, Roger Downes brought the Downes family along and then only went on to win the evening! His team clearly propped him up, and one suspects that Mr A. Downes' new Peruvian wife is responsible for most of the answers! it will be the only competition at the golf club that Roger wins this winter as he will be, without doubt, retiring from golf until conditions improve in late spring, he is, after all, a true fair weather gofer. After recent conditions I feel he may not be wrong either! Still, chin up we shall continue on regardless!


I can report that your Captains team managed a very satisfactory 3rd. His team clearly propped him up too! 

Lastly a reminder that presentation night is this Friday 27th at 7:30pm. Teri will be laying on some nibbles. All of you that have a prize to collect will have been informed by now, but why don't you all think about popping along and supporting your golfing colleagues.

FootJoy gloves

Glove warning
According to FootJoy, a worrying 50% of you are playing golf in a glove that’s too big for you – which will present grip issues. You might be fine, but ask us the question next time you’re about to head out for a round. Can’t do any harm, can it?
