Whetstone Golf Club – February/March 2019
Congratulations to Ian Nicholls and Jamie Steadman on their successful defence of their Winter League title against Jim Birkenhead and Kev Ball following a close fought match. Thanks go to Charles Steele who umpired the match in beautiful early spring sunshine.
Back to back wins for Ian and Jamie
With the weather hopefully improving we look forward to the start of the main competition season beginning with the Captain’s “Drive In” on Saturday 6th April at 1.00 followed by the traditional Texas Scramble at 1.30. Thanks to all who have signed up so far for the match and booked tickets for the evening. Places still available!
You will have seen the new numbered “Yellow” Tee blocks provided by Joe Wolmarans and the Main Committee have asked Joe to provide similar for the “Red” Ladies and “White” Competition Tees. Discussion are also ongoing with Dave Raitt around other works including new course markers and a replacement tree on the 7th fairway amongst others.
Sadly Howard Lissaman passed away recently and we send our condolences to his family and friends.
Congratulations to Paul Clarke and all who supported last year’s charity Commbus with a fantastic result of £6300 which was presented recently.
Join with me to support this year’s charity and don’t forget to find the new glass jar on the bar if you miss the 17th green. All contributions greatly appreciated.
Play Well and Love Your Greens
