Seniors July Medal

Wednesday, 1st July 2020

----------------------------------

Lost

 

I lost a small black bag of ball markers around the 1st tee a few weeks ago. It contains some special ones which are a gift from my grandchildren, and are inscribed "Papa Clark" "RJC".  If you find them, please pass them to the Pro Shop.

 

In hope, Ray Clark

Seniors Golf Update

 

Hello, everybody.

I hope you are all well; it’s good to see so many of you back on the course, albeit at a distance!

 

We intend restarting our programme on 1st July. The entry sheet for the medal is now on the notice board. Thereafter, we hope to run the programme as listed in the handbook.

We do need to be aware of the latest advice regarding COVID and we must follow the protocol as laid down by the Club and Wyboston Lakes. Please be aware that in a medal competition we can only accommodate a maximum of 48 players (16 x 3 ball games). That number may vary according to the competition being played. Whatever the number, it is very much a case of “first come, first served”. Anyone turning up without an allocated time will not be allowed to play.

 

Regrettably, the decision has been made to cancel all inter club matches for this season.

 

We will be going ahead with the Vimy and Vulcan competitions. The entry sheets were posted back in February and I fully understand that some may no longer want to play. Please email me as soon as possible if that is the case. The intention is to finish both competitions by the end of September; that will mean 3 week intervals between matches. On the basis that very few will be rushing off to the Costa Del Sol, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. If you are struggling to organise a match within the allocated time frame, please let me know what the problem is and I will adjudicate where necessary.

 

There have been two changes to the committee.

Richard Annette has resigned and I would like to thank him for his contribution while on the committee.

For some time now, we have been looking for someone to help with the accounts. I am pleased to advise that Ray Clark has been co-opted to the committee to help Mike Gower balance the books. At some point in the future, Ray will take over as Section Treasurer.

 

That’s all for now. Enjoy your golf and I look forward to catching up with you, soon.

 

Keith Moore.

Secretary – Senior Section.

Reopening

We are delighted to be able to inform you that the golf course will reopen for play on Wednesday 13th May and we are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to Wyboston Lakes Resort.

There are a few things that will be different and some areas that we need your help with to ensure safe play for everyone.

  • All 'Tee Time' bookings will need to be made and paid for online. We will only be accepting bookings based on the booker agreeing to the following terms:

  • I am booking to play golf on my own

  • I am booking a two-ball with one individual from another household

  • I am booking a two, three or four ball with members of my household only.

  • Societies and mixed groups will not be permitted.

  • For the time being we will be playing every other tee time to ensure social distance is maintained.

  • Social distance signage, floor markings, and guidelines will be in place and we ask that you always respect these.

  • We are awaiting clarity on when the Pro-shop will reopen, only 3 people at a time will be permitted into the Pro-shop.

  • The Pro-shop will be cashless, payment will be by debit/credit card only.

  • You will notice all rakes have been removed from bunkers and we ask you not to move Flagsticks. We have ordered a contactless ball extractor for each hole; these will be installed as soon as they are delivered and will take away the need to touch the hole cup.

  • At this time, the driving range and changing rooms including showers, will remain closed. We are hopeful that we will be able to open the driving range but are awaiting clarity on this point.

  • When parking your car, where possible try and park in alternate spaces.

CAPTAINS CHARITY QUIZ

 

 

Hello, everybody – I hope you are keeping safe and doing as Mr. Johnson asks.

No golf, so what is the next best thing to do with your spare time?

Correct – attempt to answer 100 questions on all things “Music and Musicals”

The quiz sheets are now available but, of course, we won’t be seeing you for a few weeks. Not to worry because by the wonders of modern science and communication we can get it to you electronically. All you need to do is email either myself or Mags and a word document will drop into your in box very quickly. We will make a note of who has had the quiz and collect money when things return to normal. What could be easier?

And please, none of this “it’s not my thing”. It might not be for you but you will know someone who likes a quiz or who is interested in music. You may know someone who sings in a choir or plays in an orchestra or, perhaps, goes to the pub on quiz nights. It’s during these times that people need some light relief. It’s fun, it makes you think, it’s rewarding when you get a few answers and importantly, its for St. John’s Hospice, Moggerhanger.

Please help us to help them.
