Men’s Singles Championship

After a meeting with the Men’s Golf committee we have decided to hold back the Championship until February. Due to the uncertainty of being able to play 4 straight Saturday’s we think that delaying the Championship is the best way to go. We intend to still go ahead with the Foursome Championship which is scheduled for Saturday 20th November, and our Christmas Party on Saturday 4th December, which will be a fun 4 Person ambrose.

Joke of the day

One evening an old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn’t been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny dipping in the pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, “We’re not coming out until you leave.” The old man frowned, “I didn’t come down here to watch you Ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.” Holding the bucket up he said, ” I’m here to feed the Alligater.”

Joke of the day

After the honeymoon, the new wife told her husband, ” I think it’s time for you to stop playing golf. In fact you might as well sell all of your clubs.” The husband replied, “Your starting to sound like my ex wife.” His wife looked at him crossly and said, ” I thought you said you’ve never been married before?” The husband responded simply, ” I haven’t. “

Joke of the day

For some time now, my wife’s had this ridiculous idea that I’m playing too much golf. Actually it came to a head at about 11.30 last night. She suddenly shouted at me. “Golf,Golf, Golf,” all you ever think about is Bloody golf”. And I’ll be honest, it frightened the life out of me. I mean you don’t expect to meet somebody on the 14th green at that time of night.

Hit em long and hit em straight

Golf Course open Tomorrow 11/9/21

Welcome back. Saturday’s event will be, Single Stableford 3 Divisions. I am also going to throw in a top 10 Stableford score on the back 9 holes, which will be conducted in conjunction with the 18 holes rundown for a ball.

I’ve had notification from Roger that the green staff have carried out sanding work on some fairways and rough. These areas are to be played as G.U.R.. Also the greens have been lightly renovated and the greens might not be as smooth as usual. The Spring major greens renovations will not take place this spring.

First round of our Singles Championship will now be played on Saturday 25th of September as well as our September Monthly Medal and then played over the next 3 Saturday’s, finishing on Saturday 16th of October which will also be the October Monthly Medal. Our Foursome Championship will be held on Saturday 20th November.
