Mixed Section Blog for July 2013
At last we have summer playing conditions. Long may it last.
Mixed Away Day
After a couple of hiccoughs I have at last managed to sort out details for our Away Day. I have had to change the date to Sunday 22nd September due to a clash of the previous date. The venue will be Scraptoft Golf Club. Our tee times are from 11.40 to 12.30. The golf will be followed by a 2 course meal and prize giving. Price £40 per person. Numbers are limited to 12 couples so sign up quickly to avoid disappointment.
Matches against other clubs
Our match on 7th July away against Naunton Downs was played in glorious sunshine. Naunton won, but we all had the enjoyment of watching the winning games by Andy Murray before the final speeches by our captains.
Our next matches are away against Kings Norton on 21st July and then home against Bromsgrove on 8th September. Do consider putting your name down to play. These matches are friendly and it is a great way to meet players from other clubs and to play some different courses.
4 Ball Better Ball Stableford on 28 July
There are still spaces for this. Booking is on-line or in reception. The fee of £23 per couple will include golf prizes and a 1 course meal. Puddings and coffees will be available for you to order on the day at the normal bar cost. (Please bear in mind the sign-up procedures for all mixed competitions as detailed in the January blog. There is also a copy of these on the Mixed Notice Board.)
The Windsor Cup – Mixed Summer League
In order to help with people arranging dates for the round-robin part of this competition, I have amended the play by dates for the first 3 rounds. ALL of the round robin matches must now be played by Sunday 8th September. This means you are at liberty to arrange the dates for any round-robin matches to suit yourselves as long as they are played by 8th September.
There can be no leeway after this date and any matches not played by that date will be considered to be cancelled and both couples will be awarded zero points. This is necessary in order to give time for the Semi-finals and Final to be played.
Mixed Social Golf
The social golf on Friday evenings will continue each Friday until the clocks change in October, or until we cannot see to complete 9 holes. Do think about joining in, it is always a friendly group of players so you will soon fit in. The sign-up notice for each week is on the mixed notice board in the entrance to the changing rooms. You do not need a partner for these evenings, just sign-up and come along to the bar area about 4.15pm to find out who you will be playing with.
Are you looking for a partner for mixed competitions and matches?
Let me know, I may be able find someone for you. Or, do you know anyone who might like to play? It would be lovely to be able to include more people in our activities.
