Club Defibrillator: This has now been moved to the entrance door to the bar by the bowls green room for easier/quicker access for both members and the public. The location is to be publicised and the unit registered so that anyone can obtain an access code by ringing the emergency services.
Plans including a memorial garden, an idea conceived by Mark and Carol Langford assisted by Vice Captain Phil Ackers and funding by the Club and a kind donation from John Harris were put in place for the arrival of our friends from Guernsey, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the golfing fixture. It’s a testament to the fixture that it has stood such a test of time. The weekend consists of a game on Friday with the Ladies and then a 2 day fixture with the men. This year saw the arrival of 6 golfers from the 14 visiting for the first time, not that you would have known that, immediately interfacing with all our members. The Ladies managed to win the first day getting the weekend off to a great start, a momentum that the men maintained with a most impressive 7 to 0 victory on day 2. The final day the result was 5 to 2 providing Ramsey with an impressive 12:2 Win. The whole weekend was full of friendship and banter that has become a trademark of the event. On Sunday evening a special RAM figure and Decanter were presented to Guernsey by Captain Paul Judge during the presentation dinner to provide a special keepsake for the Anniversary between the two clubs.

The picture shows Ladies Captain Lucy Mills-Cripps accepting the winner’s trophy (The Rock) from Guernsey Captain, Jerry Cobb. It was a well fought match – all square just waiting for the last group to finish. The final ladies group crossed the 18th 1 up, sank the putt, to win the match. Well done ladies.
Vice Captain Phil Ackers and I had an amazing day away at Newark yesterday (1st May).
At breakfast sitting with their Captain Howard Roberts there was a bright silver Trophy on the table in front of me and they had great delight in showing me all the entries of Newark engraved on its base, so much so that I wasn’t even aware there was a Trophy.
There were a couple of Ramsey entries, actually one was hidden on the side of the Trophy from 2021 where we had won last year – they apparently forgot the Trophy but in fairness had engraved our name onto it.
I believe we had not won away in the cup’s history – so no pressure then!
BUT with clever team selection with VC Phil and some on-buggy based course motivation, well presence at least, we amazingly came home with the Bright Silver Trophy and winning 6:2
What a simply great day and magical memory..
