NOTICES

THE CAPTAIN'S LOG

John Constance

Argh....

 

Thanks to the 19 Pirates who turned up on Saturday for our Ambrose comp and shared in some great prizes put up by the Sponsors. The heat has certainly been affecting the greens with a few patches on some holes causing issues when putting – from what I’ve seen and heard it is a common problem around all courses this summer.  

Handicaps for next Saturday are attached.

Keith Angus, Phil Place, Chris Reid – A big thank you to these 3 chaps who sponsored last Saturday’s game. Your generosity is so appreciated!

 

Next Week’s Sponsors are: The Odd Couple – Norman Marshall & Mike Clifford

Next weeks format is PAR - [Off The BLUE Tees].

 IF YOU WANT TO SPONSOR A GAME – then please let JC know in advance and I will give you the details on how it works. Tip! Partner up so its not too much of an outlay.
