As members are aware it has been arranged that the golf course would be closed next week on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for maintenance to the greens. This was planned in order to better ensure that sufficient time would be available for all of the works to be completed irrespective of the weather and that the course would be opened when it became clearer when the works would be completed.
Based on the weather forecast for the early part of the week we are now more confident that the works will be completed over Monday and Tuesday so I am pleased to confirm that the course will now be open on Wednesday with the proviso that if there are unforeseen delays, for instance through machinery breakdown, any tee times that are booked for Wednesday may have to be cancelled. Dependant on how the work progresses on Monday we may be able to open the course before the end of Tuesday in which case Stuart will open up the booking slots as soon as is practical and an email will be sent out to members.

Another very successful weekend for the club with the bowls club running its end of season, covid safe, finals and the golf section running its Texas Scramble event which had an excellent entry of over 100.
With the introduction of the much publicised “rule of 6” we have now received clarification, via Golf England, from the government in relation to changes in how we need to operate to continue to meet Covid-19 guidelines and the law from, today, Monday 14th September. The Play Safe Stay Safe Framework For Playing Golf has similarly been updated to reflect the changes.
To summarise the position for golf please see the following summary. But please note that I am awaiting an update from the bowls ruling bodies on any changes for bowls :
On the course:Golf can continue to be played in accordance with existing ‘Play Safe, Stay Safe’ guidance. Groupings must not consist of more than six people.
Off the course: Clubhouses can continue to cater for multiple groups each containing a maximum of six people from different households. However, golfers in one group must avoid merging with golfers from another group to create a single gathering in excess of six people.
Society and team event organisers should take special care to ensure different groups of six from within their party do not merge to form larger groups before, during or after a round. Travel to and from golf venues should continue to be in accordance with government regulations.
We are awaiting further clarification on how the new rulings affect committee meetings and group coaching and will provide an update when available.
Face coverings must be worn by members of the public in all indoor areas of the club/facility. Coverings may be removed in bar and restaurant areas for the purpose of eating and drinking.
It is important that we follow these guidelines to ensure that all members, visitors and our staffing remain as safe as possible and, as a club, can demonstrate to any regulatory visits that we are ensuring that we continue to meet all requirements.

Hugh Cameron, Gina Cameron, Neil Stewart and Julia Stewart 62.1
1st Leighton Gilbert, Nathan Long, Ian Stokes and Joe Thompson 54.3
2nd Cameron Silvester, Andy Lingham, Neil Barnes and Jake Barnes 55.9
3rd Mark Edwards, Sam Vallance, Jordan Cafferkey, and Mark Hurst 56.4
Also a congratulations to Dave Harris, who had a hole in one on the 2nd Hole.
It is nearly a month since my last update and I am pleased to report that the club has continued to benefit on a range of fronts so a hearty and, repeated, “HURRAH” is certainly appropriate.
Financially, August proved to continue the trend that we have been enjoying over recent months in that we have continued to attract new members and visitors and, as I have previously mentioned, I am in no doubt that the club’s welcoming nature is a major element of our success. To date, since the start of lockdown, the club has attracted a total of 85 new members !!
We continue to enjoy the good weather and I am extremely pleased that the outdoor deck has proved to be very popular.
Over the last few weeks it was great to be able to stage a variety of membership based events such as the deck opening day and various golf and bowls, covid safe, matches which have all proved very popular and I want to express my gratitude to all those members who, firstly, entered them and, secondly, who stepped forward to make them the success they were.
Today I am sure that many members will have listened to Boris outlining the new measures being introduced from Monday September 14th based around his “rule of 6”. I have already contacted Golf England asking for clarification as to where that leaves us for matches and societies and I ask all members to continue to adhere to the social distancing measures that we all need to.
This coming weekend the bowls side have their finals weekend and I have been successful in getting into a number of finals which will remove me from the bar operation for parts of the weekend. Members will have seen the dependency on volunteers at the weekend and there is no doubt in my mind that limiting people from the clubhouse and delivering food and beverages to the seating area is the safest approach for everyone on site so I would ask members to be slightly more patient this weekend if the delivery times, with one or two members not being available , are a little delayed. We have recruited some additional help but there may be times where delays occur.
As with previous weekends Sarah will be on site working, in her bubble, in the kitchen with the volunteers delivering her culinary delights to the deck. Sarah’s special this weekend will be lasagne and salad and, for those like me with a sweet tooth, victoria sandwich.
Lastly I want to take the opportunity to thank all those members who continue to step forward and volunteer on a range of activities across the club. There is no doubt that volunteering is an integral part of our success and without their efforts the club would certainly not be enjoying such positive results.
