Captain’s Corner


I must start by congratulating Martin Burbank and his team for doing a fabulous job in preparing the course for the Club Companionships.  I would also like to thank Tony Holiday and Solutions in Accounting for sponsoring the event for the second year running and presenting the prizes to the winners.  Lastly, huge thanks go to Simon & Sue from the Witney Lakes Resort team for donating the ball markers, nearest the pin prizes, winner’s shirts, flags, bubbly and water and for the great food and beverage offering throughout the weekend.

We have the inaugural playing of the Men’s Vs Seniors Charity Cup on Saturday 27th July and on the Texas Scramble is on Sunday 28th July.

Upcoming in August

The August Monthly Medal (Jameson’s CA) is on Sunday 4th August.

Sunday 11th August sees the Masters. (Open to competition winners only).

The weekend of the 17th and 18th August is Stableford weekend.

We have a big day on Sunday 25th August. It is the much-loved Safari course for Captain’s day.   This is a great day of golf – shall we say an interesting course!  It is £10 per team (pairs) format TBD.  There will be a sign-up sheet on the noticeboard in the Sports Bar from the end of July.  There will be trophies for the winners.  A raffle will be held with some great prizes to be had. Tickets on sale before and after the event.  So please get your names down and help me get to my target this year of £2,000 for my chosen Captains Charity, Clic Sargent – Young Lives Vs Cancer.
