To the manager and staff
Many thanks to you all at Newark Golf Club for a wonderful and memorable day on Monday. My thanks go to the greens staff for a fantastic golf course, the catering staff for the wonderful food and the service and to you all for organising the day for us.

Many thanks
Malcolm Woodhead
Club Captain (Chilwell Manor Golf Club)
The 42 golfers who played in the Royal Air Force Golfing Society Summer Meeting at Newark on Thursday 2nd July all had an excellent day.  There were many complimentary remarks about the presentation of the course and, in particular, how well the greens played.  This was praise from golfers who play at some of the top courses in the home counties.  All aspects of the catering were well received and I was especially asked to tell you that the staff at all levels were helpful and cheerful, which always gives a good impression. 
Although I won nothing myself this year, I had warm feeling that the remarks from my colleagues in the Society had made me feel proud of Newark Golf Club.  I would be grateful if you would pass on the thanks of the Society to all concerned.
Best wishes,     Walter Hughes  4/7/15


On behalf of the Bruce Morris Away Day on the 18th March 2015 the players have reported that it was an excellent day. The hospitality being great, the food mst nourishing, the course in good condition and even the weather kind.

So on behalf of all the players I would like to thank Newark Golf Club, its members, the Professional, the catering and ground staff for the courtesy extended to them.

Dave Evans who holed in one was over the moon, particularly with his certificate of proof, once again my thanks to all.

Yours sincerely, G.B. Morris


On behalf of the guys yesterday may I thank you for your hospitality and the welcome we received.

Everyone enjoyed the day and I think some of the guys were surprised at the dryness of the course considering

that where most of us play the courses are still wet and a little muddy in parts

The food as usual was excellent – our thanks to the Chefs and staff -  as were the bar staff after we had finished and the guys in the pro shop. Once again many thanks and we no doubt will be back next year, if of course you will have us!

Kind regards

This is just a note to pass on our thanks for allowing us to use Newark GC as a meeting venue.
All people present on 21st January commented on the quality of the service and food provided by your staff, personally I think that the chips are addictive.  I have also spoken with the Meeting Chairman, who has recommended that we keep Newark in mind for future meetings because of the central location and the near perfect room set up.

Once again, many thanks.

Hi Dave, the Kids Xmas Party was great fun – thanks to everyone who was involved. Paul Gascoigne 16th Dec 2013

Hi David, I thought it might interest you to know that we stayed at Kenwick Park over October half term and used the reciprocal arrangement a couple of times.  They were very nice and accommodating.  Practice facilities are quite good too.  We have issues with the long grass, which I really like.  That is nothing compared to their 6th hole when it is played as a par 5.  Don’t know if you have ever been but it must be at least a 100 yard carry just to get to the lake and then another 50 to clear that.  Some other quirky holes too, really enjoyed it. Anthony Toft-Brown  5th Nov 2013

Dear David,  Reference: Tiger Cub Tour – National Final - Thursday, 24th & Friday, 25th October, 2013.  I am writing to request that you pass on my grateful thanks to the Board of Directors, and all the club members for their patience, kindness and hospitality in allowing the Tiger Cub Tour courtesy of the Newark golf course and clubhouse to host its National Finals in 2013.   In addition I would particularly like to thank the Head Green-keeper and his staff for preparing the course to such an excellent standard, it was truly appreciated by all the competitors and their parents. And not forgetting the Golf Shop staff, and the Bar and Catering staff for their help and support. It was greatly appreciated.

A note to the Chairman:  "A very big thank you for your kind hospitality at the Am/Am event at Newark GC on Thursday.  We both enjoyed ourselves immensely and I particularly thought the golf course and its environment were quite outstanding.  I would say it is on a par with Woodall Span as being one of the best inland courses in the UK.  Our dinner was excellent, the staff were pleasant and attentive to all our needs.  I wish you and your club the very best for the future."  Alasdair Gardner  28th June 2012

M and D."

" Dear David, I had the pleasure of playing in the gents competition at your club yesterday and wanted to write on a couple of matters. The first is that my partners and I found the club and course in excellent condition and our thanks go to all the staff who helped us have such an enjoyable day.  Secondly I wanted the Club to know how helpful Alwyn Lyons and especially the young assistant in the Pro shop (sorry, I didn't get his name) were when I encountered a problem with my sky caddie on arrival. As a visitor is nice to find people very willing to go that extra mile to try to resolve someone's problem. I did thank them at the time but felt that you should know how helpful they were. We shall certainly be returning to play in the future. Kind regards. Rob."

"I was at Newark GC on Wednesday with my son who was playing in the EGU Boys County QR ; he was fortunate enough to win the leading individual prize.  The course was in great shape despite the dry spring with the greens in particularly good condition.  Rob and I came across for a practice round the week before.  Tom was on duty in the shop and could not have been more helpful.  He showed us your new swing analysis studio and allowed Rob to hit a few shots with his driver.  Tom checked Rob's stats and pointed out that his shaft was producing too much spin.  We worked on improving this on the course that day.  By the day of the event Rob felt much better about his game.  Thanks Tom !!  The greens were the best Rob has putted on all year and his putting saw the benefit with 28 and 27 putts for the consecutive rounds.  Rob is on the England U16 squad but has never produced two 67's in one day.
All of your staff and officials showed all of the visitors to Newark great hospitality.  We had a really good time.  Please pass on our thanks to your committee, members and staff.  Kind Regards.

"Good afternoon David, I wanted to write on behalf of the Admiral Rodney Golf Society to thank you, and everyone at Newark Golf Club for a fantastic day last Friday (20th May).
Every one of the 35 golfers that were part of the Society had a fantastic day which began in exactly the right way with that superb full English breakfast. The staff that looked after us on both the catering side, in the Pro shop and behind the bar were very friendly and welcoming.
The course, as ever, was in superb condition which contributed to some very good scoring on the day (although I cannot legislate for one of our 28 handicappers coming in with 45 points !). Needless to say he has been duly slashed.
Once again, my sincere thanks to everybody at Newark Golf Club.     Best wishes"
