We wrapped up the summer programme with a team match at Bishop Duppas on Saturday 23rd. We may have lost 7-3 but it belies a close match right up to the end and an overall shot loss of 70-60. It cemented our 6th place in the SML Mixed League and provides encouragement for next season. Sadly, this will be under new management as our captain Diane has decided to hand on the reins to someone new. Also, Cassie has decided to call time on her work on the committee. They’ve both been part of the fixtures and fittings, certainly since before I joined in 2017 .. many thanks to them both for their sterling work down the years and best wishes on the green. Anyone who fancies joining the committee is encouraged to add their name to the nominations list which is in the clubhouse. Incumbents will be finalised at the AGM.
The green was closed by our greenskeepers today as the worm casts are worse than ever .. attention now turns to work preparing the green for it’s winter hibernation. It’s been decided to get a professional outfit in to do the heavy work to the green but they’ll be a call for help for other key work at some time soon .. so get your holidays in now! We start our programme of winter socials on the first Tuesday of every month .. more details soon.
