Course Record Broken

Saturday 16th January presented the players with overcast skies and rain periods. Nothing special about the morning, a Stroke round in what we would have thought to be tough conditions.

Not so for our long time member Robert Mead, current holder of the course record of 66.  Though the showers and wind Rob reeled off 6 birdies, 3 bogeys and 9 pars to set a new course record of 65 off the stick.

Congratulations to Rob who has been in strong form recently playing yesterdays round off 3.

Well done and we are now looking forward to a 64.

Golf update

Dear Members

We are pleased and excited to announce that golf can now be played in groups of 4 and competition golf can commence from Wednesday 28th October.

As many of you will be aware, the Pro Shop has now implemented on online booking system.  At the moment, members are not required to pre-book, and we have retained our morning time slots on competition days.  However, with the unprecedented demand for access to the golf course, the Pro Shop has made the following changes to our time slots:

Tuesday              6.30am – 7.45am            approx. 44 players

Wednesday       TBA

Thursday            6.30am – 7.45am            approx. 44 players

Saturday             6.15am – 8.00am            approx. 60 players

Sunday               6.15am – 7.15am            approx. 36 players

It is possible that at some point in the future, the Pro Shop will require Members to pre-book their positions within the member time slots.  We are in discussion with Pro Shop management in this regard, and will keep you informed of any developments.

We expect to soon be in a position to confirm the dates for the 2020 Club Championships, and we will communicate those dates as soon as possible. We also hope to be able to make an announcement regarding access to the clubrooms.

Please remember to follow Covid-safe guidelines, wear a mask, maintain social distancing and if you are feeling unwell, stay at home.

Good Golfing

GWGC Committee.
