I hope you are having a great week and you all enjoyed Chris Atkin's Captain's Day last Saturday. It was a great day and I know Chris put so much work into the day to make sure it was one to remember (or not depending on what time of the evening you talked to him).
I personally would like to thank all those that help run events and days like these at the club including the ladies at the half-way hut, Trevor Dean for helping Dane in the kitchen and cutting his holiday short, Vice Captain Barry Tiplady and Competition Secretary Craig Russell for doing the cards and scores plus everyone else who donated, helped and supported our Captain.
We have so much to tell you about what is going in July, I have not got time for my usual thoughts and chat so here goes and keep up...
Time to improve your handicap and win £250!
So it's July and the question is, has your golf got better and have you improved your handicap? A better question might be, what have you done to improve your handicap? Well here is the challenge. We are offering the person who can reduce their handicap by the biggest % between Friday, 1 July and Sunday, 24 July, £250 pro shop credit on their account! Do you need a bigger incentive?
