Letter from the President

Stanton on the Wolds Golf Club is hosting the County Championships this year. Dates and entry forms for all the County tournaments can be found on the Union website: www.nottsgolfunion.com and I encourage everyone to consider the possibility of entry. You will find full details of 2014 fixtures, meetings and County meetings on the website. An electronic copy of ‘The Fixture List and Handbook 2014’ can be accessed via your computers or mobile phones 

County Cards which offer discounted rounds of golf at more than 1500 clubs in the country are now free of charge to all male affiliated members of clubs. You can find out more about how to use the cards and what clubs are participating by visiting our website. You should be able to collect these from your Secretary/Manager once you have paid your annual subscription and the cards are valid from 1 April.  Lady members can also purchase a County Card for a nominal fee of £2 half of which will go towards supporting junior girl’s golf in the county.

The County kicks off the season with the County Trials at Stanton on the Wolds on Sunday March 23rd and the Under 18 Boys Four Counties event at Wollaton Park over the 9th/10th/11th April when we will be hosting teams from Cheshire, Lancashire and Shropshire and Herefordshire. This is a great competitive event and you are welcome to come along and give your support to our boys’ team.

More newsletters about County golf will be published throughout the golfing season. In the meantime let’s hope the bad weather is behind us and we can all look forward to a successful and enjoyable golfing year.

Best wishes to you all.        Martin Hathway.
