Junior Fund Raising Disco

There are still tickets available for this 60’s / 70’s Disco which is being held on Saturday the 23rd of November to raise

funds for our Junior section. Junior numbers are on the up and it would be great if there was a large turnout of

members & guests to help support them.

The evening is being run by Eric Millar and the club are very grateful to him for this event.

Available behind the Bar tickets are priced at £6 so come along and relive some old memories.

There will also be a Raffle and any donations of prizes will be gratefully received.

Congratulations go to Clare Hogg whose name was pulled out the hat at last Friday’s Prizegiving.

Clare’s prize is a years membership for our Centenary year. Thanks to all who participated in the draw.

Tickets for the annual Children’s Christmas Party will go on sale this Saturday, 9 November, from 2.00pm at the cost of £10.

Annual Prizegiving

Just a reminder that the Annual Prizegiving evening is on Friday the 8th of November at 7.30pm

This is the highlight at the end of our golfing season. All the prizewinners have of course been invited but this is a

great chance for everyone to come along and socialise with members that you may see in the passing but don’t

often get a chance to talk to. Food will be available on the night prior to the prizegiving – pre booking would be

preferred but not essential

Hopefully many of you can come along on the night. If any of the prizewinners cannot make it that night we would

be grateful if they could inform the office.

Centenary Diary

As 2020 is going to be such a special year for the Golf Club it has been decided to produce a nice pocket book diary as a memento for next year. Although the cost has not yet been finalised it should be in the region of £5.00. In order that appropriate numbers can be printed the Council would be grateful if you could let the Club know by Sunday 10 November if you would like to purchase one.

To do so a list will be held behind the bar from this weekend or if unable to get to the Club please can you email the office with a note of the numbers required. Please note that no payment will be due until diary is picked up.

Centenary Draw

Please note that the draw for a free membership held by the Centenary Committee will be made on the evening of the annual prize giving, Friday 8 November.

As you know there was an unfortunate incident in the bar which meant that the draw list was taken from the Club. Many thanks to all members who purchased tickets originally and have provided their names, there are still one or two who have not come forward so please advise the Office if you did purchase a ticket but have not provided your details. There may also be an opportunity to purchase additional tickets on the evening should you wish.
