On the Course...
I think we could have held the National Table Tennis Championships on the course on Sunday as the frost had certainly dug its teeth in. Conditions for all were a test of patience with a few lucky breaks/bounces, but a large amount of not so lucky bounces. I can certainly say there was one happy member when his putt dropped for a two on the 17th hole as he was the only player to make a two out of a field of 61. Congratulations David Taylor for winning the whole ball sweep! Winning the war of patience out there was Anthony Seyour for Division One with a nett 70, Steve Brown with a fantastic nett 66 and Tom Williams winning Division Three with a nett 74.
Sadly, due to the fog on Tuesday, the ladies competition was postponed as the course was closed until 11:00am. Last week there was a typo with regards to the winner of the Stableford. With a fantastic 37 points in tricky conditions, Sue Pickard was the winner. Congratulations!
What's coming up?

The '10 Yard Challenge'
Simply book in with your driver and if I can't get another 10 yards on your drive by either the latest technology or a little pointer here and there, then I'll give you a FREE sleeve of golf balls. So many golfers are playing with a driver that quite often doesn't suit their swing and speed, either too stiff in the shaft, not enough loft or simply a club from the last century. So come on, what have you got to lose? I'll see you in the Swing Studio.
The Big Christmas Shoe Sale
We have over 40 pairs of men's and women's shoes with big discounts, so come and bag yourself a bargain while stocks last.
