Now that we’ve all recovered from the Christmas and New Year period I thought an
update would be a good idea.

Firstly can I offer a very warm welcome to the new members who have joined over
the last few weeks Mark Nicholson, Glen Abrahams, Lee Kaighin,
Josh Hemingway, Keith Rigney, Ryan Bust, Steve Benn and Chris Connelly. In
addition we also have three lady members who we are delighted to welcome
Denise Mathews, Gill Johnson and Sandra Rippon. Im sure you will all have a
great time here over the years to come.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working with Jonathon and Rebecca Nellar on a
marketing campaign part of which requires feed back from our existing members.
In the next week or so everyone should receive a questionnaire sent through BRS.
If I could ask everyone to fill this in it would help enormously in not only our
marketing strategy but also in finding what you the members want moving forward.

If you’re not already aware we have a new scratch team manager for our newly
promoted team so on behalf of all members I’d like to wish Bob Moore and the
team the best of luck this year. If anyone is interested in joining the squad I’m sure
Bob would be very pleased to hear from you.

On the golfing front the season will be here before we know it and it’s looking like
we’re in for a great year ahead. As previously advised the competition entry forms
have moved from the locker room up to the bar. Two items to note firstly we are
trialling an invitation day on a Saturday this year which is on June 15th and offers a
great opportunity for you to show off the course, secondly we have our inaugural
Pro-Am tournament which is on Friday 4th of October and should prove to be a
great success. It’s never too soon to get those invites out to your family and
friends.

Looking into March this year National Grid are changing the electrical pylons from
the 3rd tee down the side of the 9th to the 8th green. This is currently scheduled
from the 11th to the 15th and obviously will cause some disruption which you will
be notified of nearer the time.

Our Course Manager Martin Hayward continues to post daily tweets and these can
be found @Sitwell_greens you may even get the odd photo and video there.
Our Vice Captain Michael Hinchliffe has booked several bands and artists for the
coming year. The first event is scheduled for Saturday 30th March which is the
Captains ins and out buffet and dance. It’s a smart casual affair and we hope to
see as many there as possible. Further details can be found around the clubhouse.

Prior to that I’m pleased to announce our very own quiz master Steve Cavill will
continue with his increasingly popular quiz nights the next one being Friday 15th
March, food can as always be pre booked.

If you’ve read this far down well done and the best of luck for the coming year!

Regards,
Neil Widdop
Captain
