2013 Season Meeting

The following decisions were made at the pre-season meeting, held on Monday 15th April 2013:


Tony Thorpe was voted in as this year’s Vice-Captain.

Monday nights

Martin will book the Yellow course at Farleigh, with tee-off times as 5:15 pm – 5:35 pm. We will play every Monday night (except Bank Holidays) from 22nd April until 30th September 2013.


Fees will remain the same as last year: £35 for full members; £20 for away day membership.

Doubles Cup

This year’s Doubles Cup will be held at Wellshurst Golf  & Country Club on 15th May 2013. The cost for 27 holes, coffee and bacon rolls, a light lunch and prizes will be £40.

Please let me know if you can make this event. Guests are more than welcome. Martin will be collecting £10 deposits on Monday nights.

Nepotism Cup

This year’s Nepotism Cup will be a 27 hole match-play event against the Nicaid Golf Society on 12 June at Farleigh. The cost for 27 holes, coffee and bacon rolls, a light lunch, evening meal and prizes will be £60.50. This promises to be a good event as Nicaid is a large golf societyand has promised to send a team of 12 -18 players.

As such, we are looking for a good turnout of both full and away day members – and any guests – for this one.

Please let Martin know if you can make this event. He will be collecting £10 deposits on Monday nights.

Captains Day & 3 Club Day

Both events will be played in July 2013. Dates and venues to be confirmed.
