Graham WoodfineI would like to start by saying thanks for the warm welcome Pat Dowsett  and I have received on becoming your Captains for the coming year. This was especially true at our Drive-in on the 6th of October. Our chosen charity for this year is The Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.

It is my intention to keep these bulletins short and sweet as I know one can easily loose the will to live if they become too lengthy.

Firstly, Pat and I are delighted that Hilary Ashby and Andy Fielding have agreed to be our respective Vice-Captains.

I would also like to welcome back to the Committee Chris Pritchard who will coordinate the Club Diary and John Burton who will be responsible for New Members. John will also have a responsibility for The Men’s Knockouts on The Men’s Golf Committee which this year will be chaired by Andy Fielding.

The Committee has also co-opted Victoria Westgarth to provide some oversight for Mixed Golf and Mixed Golf Events, an increasingly important part of the Club’s activities.

We have a number of Social Events coming up in November, Billy and the Bandits on Saturday the 16th, Quiz Night on Tuesday the 19th and The Bluff Wine Tasking on Friday the 22nd. All such events can easily be booked by sending an e-mail to  See the notice boards and The Club’s website for more details.

The next Big Club Golf Event is The Turkey Trot on Sunday the 8th of December,  so sign-up early to avoid any disappointments.

Thanks again and have fun out on the course.
