Hale Golf Club PGA Golf Professional
As I write this it's Tuesday morning and we're about to commence battle with Knutsford GC for day 1 of our overseas 2017 Ryder Cup match.
It's the 5th running of the event. The photo included shows the strict preparations going on yesterday before today's big game.
More news on twitter and in next week's newsletter.
David Gill must have played magnificently on winter greens and at times very heavy rain, in order to score 35 points over 15 holes in the Men's Winter Stableford on Saturday. John Webb was second with a very creditable 33 points. Three players then shared third place and they were: Bob Cooke, Mike Kirchin and the gentleman captain David Swale.
Well done to Jan Ravenscroft for scoring 19 points and winning last Thursday's Nine Hole Stableford competition in the bitter cold. Barbara Spark was second with 16 points and Sally Wright managed a gross birdie on the third.
Ladies Beginner Group Lessons
We have some really exciting news about some ladies beginner group lessons. As things currently stand, we are running two five week ladies courses starting in April. They include weekly one hour golf lessons followed by tea/coffee to help the group get to know one another and the cost is just £25.
There is then an option to follow this on with a four week programme where we introduce the ladies to the golf course at a cost of £40.
Finally the ladies can then take out a three month trial membership at just £55. The initial courses start at 1.30pm on Tuesday 18th April and 6pm on Thursday 20th April, so if you have any friends or family who you think might like to join us then please pass on my contact details (firstname.lastname@example.org or 0161 904 0835) and I can talk them through it. It's a fabulous opportunity for ladies new to golf to give it a real go at our super golf club.
I have just taken delivery of some Hawke Laser Range Finder LRF Golfer 600.
They do a great job of giving you an exact yardage to the pin and are especially useful on pitch shots I've found.
They are very compact and cost £199 which is £100 or so cheaper than the equivalent models that Bushnell and Nikon produce. Pop into the shop to take a look.
Here's a note from Sandra Mossop:
On Wednesday 8th March the HGC Eggheads Team (of BBC 2 fame!) - Captain, Bill Dixon, Tony Bray, Paul Simpson, Andrew Kay, Jim Mossop, & Jonny Yates - are presenting an evening of entertaining but challenging questions based on their specialist subjects:
- Sport and Leisure
- Politics and Current Affairs
- Geography and Science
- Food & Drink
- Music, TV, Film and Theatre
The quiz will follow the usual excellent HGC Supper and there will be prizes galore. Join us to help put the Eggheads Team through their paces!
And here's a summary of Burn's Night from Jan Ravenscroft:
Jason produced an amazing Burns Night Supper and paraded the haggis with pride while Heather bore the whisky in true spirit, both accompanied by a traditional bagpiper. Pictured below are Donald Sutherland who read the Selkirk Grace, Janice Moss who gave the reply to the toast to the Lassies, the Captain (a true bred Yorkshireman!) who gave the keynote speech to the Immortal Bard and Mike Kirchin who chaired proceedings. However the star of the night was Martin "Mc"Oldfield who addressed that haggis with all the passion of a true Scotsman. What a night! One of the best!
