High season is now well underway and with it we’ve seen several members return, and a resurgence in new members who we, the committee, are especially pleased to see.
At our recent meeting we discussed the upcoming club championship. The dates for your diaries are Tuesday 24th January 2023 (Green Valley), and Thursday 26th January 2023 (Eastern Star), followed by the evening presentation at Hemmingways. More information will be circulated, via the venue organisers, nearer the date.
Having now been chair for just over six months I'm amazed by the amount of voluntary work, time and effort put in by committee members. I’d like to give a special mention to Martin Grimoldby, who has already started to organise the club championship and Craig Hitchens, who diligently enters the 200+ scores every week, keeping our handicaps current. All these things ‘need doing’ and I hope we all appreciate their efforts as much as I do. Craig will be returning home for a while at the end of this year and in his absence, David Edwards, who is the handicap sub-committee chairman, will take over the admin of the system. Again, the committee thanks you very much Craig for all your past efforts in supporting us, the handicap sub-committee, and PFGS.
We should also remember the venue organisers who also work tirelessly to ensure we have good golfing days. As members we can help them by ensuring the score cards are legible and accurate, giving the exact daily entry fee and conforming to our recently introduced Code of Conduct (available on this website). The Code of Conduct is intended to remind us all of our responsibilities, on the course and in the club house, towards both our fellow members and those around us. Please take time to read it and as always, feedback will be welcome, through the venue organisers.
Finally, may you hit every fairway, hole every putt and enjoy your golfing days with the IPGC.
