This is just to say what a wonderful day we had at Newark last Thursday. I said so to Simon Collingwood, but thought I should write on behalf of all our golfers to thank you for making it all go so well.
I was relieved that we managed to find a way to fit in 48 golfers in the morning and 46 after lunch. We had not attracted so many members before, so this was new ground for me. The timings worked out really well. The catering arrangements were also perfect. Karen was extremely calm and considerate even when I had a senior moment and got the numbers wrong for supper! She and the catering staff did a super job and the meal was very much appreciated, as was the soup at lunchtime - well done chef.
The course played extremely well; the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. Consequently our scores were better than usual - 2 folk (off 11 & 13) had 42 points in the Nett Stableford and the Scratch Stableford was won with 32 points by a chap playing off 7. In the afternoon Foursomes, the top 2 pairs were tied with 41 points - the winners (off 14) had a magnificent 24 points on the back 9. Scores like these only happen when the greens are good.
Please let Simon see this note. He should be delighted to know how it all went.
Finally, could you please confirm that we are booked in for exactly the same times for next year on Thursday 6th July 2017?
