Well golfing weather seems to have joined us, the course is looking in excellent condition, let’s hope our golf does it proud.

Our friendly matches are now well underway, our visit to Gosport, as always an excellent social encounter, unfortunately we lost 3-2, following our away match at Dummer, again coming off second best 5-1 . We have several matches coming up, and please encourage members to put their names down, each match list is on the men’s notice board.

We played 2 Annodata matches away at South Winchester and home against Weybrook Park. We lost 4-1 at South Winchester and had a very close game at home to Weybrook where we lost 3-2 on a play off down the 19th hole. Similarly, we had a narrow loss in the County Seven at Test Valley where we lost 4-3 with again a match going done the 19th hole.

Better news in the Gales Hockley where we won 5-4 at home to Highpost. Our next opponent is Romsey.

It is noticeable that some golfer’s both members & Green Fee players, are not replacing divots on the course, can I ask that we all help the greens staff and replace them, even if they aren’t yours.

We should take delivery of 2 new Buggies this week, I am sure this will generate some additional revenue for the club, these will be on show ready for hire each day, I believe Roger is organising this.

And finally, the front of the clubhouse is in need of a clean, I am in the process of getting one of my clients to do this, and will liaise with Alison as to the timings.


Happy Golfing!
