Survey time

As the year is rapidly disappearing it is a good time to reassess what has been successful over the past 12 months. You should all have received a survey in your inbox. Please complete and push send so that decisions can be made for next year. All responses will be anonymous so please be constructively honest.

Volunteers for 2020.

The 9HW have become a very popular group and our membership has increased markedly in the last 18 months. Because of this we are wanting to increase the size of our committee from 4. Currently 2 manage the year, with 2 shadowing and helping. Ideally, we would like to share the load and provide ways that people can contribute without being inundated. So, if you would like to join this vibrant team please come and talk with Jo Hollies, Jane Beveridge or Sue Olliff.

Pressure on Tee Times

As the weather warms up more people are wanting to come out and play which is adding pressure on our limited tee times particularly on Monday and Wednesday mornings. We understand that part of the enjoyment (some days the only enjoyment) of golf is the social aspect and that is what makes 9 holes special. However, there are other times that we can play, including early afternoon on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at various times on Friday. So, gather a group together and try a different time occasionally. The course is definitely drier later in the day which is a bonus.

Happy golfing everyone and check out the latest summer apparel in the pro shop.
