April News from your Mens' Captain

Mon 04 Apr 2016


The Mens golfing season got underway on the 3rd April on a glorious spring morning when 80 golfers took part in the Sausage Supper event. The winners were Mark Smith, Dave Woods, Richie Murfitt and Claude Powell, I would like to thank all those who supported the event and helped make it a great event.

I would encourage all members to look for the many opportunities to play in the Mens competitions, the dates are on the website and in the published diary. On the completion of the Locker project the details of competitions will be also be published onnoticeboards. The first Monthly medal is on the 17th April and it would be great to have a good turnout.

I like to see good performances recognised and with this in mind I will be starting a Golfer of the Month award which will lead during the year to the Golfer of the Year award to be presented at the Presentation evening.

The Club matches start with the home match on 23rd April against Girton. If any members wish to be involved in these matches please add your name to the list in the locker room.

On the Charity front Tim Ashman, Karl Mackender, James Smith, Steve Sharp and supported by Allister Berry will be undertaking the Three Peaks Challenge on 11th June on behalf of the Captain’s Charity. There is a Just Giving page,  https://www.justgiving.com/ElyGolfers/ where members can make their donations.

The next social event at the Club is the Race Night on Saturday 23rd and it promises to be a great evening, contact the office/bar for tickets which will include a basket meal.
