2017 Club Captain's Charity

 Date Posted 14th March 2018 by RG/CR   |   Posted in General

On 28th February our 2017 Captain Clive Reynolds presented a cheque for £6500 to Ceris Bradley of Macmillan Cancer Support. This was half of the funds raised during his year of captaincy; the remaining £6500 was to be presented to Willow founders, Bob & Meg Wilson, in Welwyn Garden City two days later, but the weather intervened, another date is to be arranged.
Clive thanks all members for their support during the year.

Ladies & Seniors Captain's Charities 2017

 Date Posted 6th March 2018 by RG   |   Posted in General

Denise and George Eland had a great time in their year as Lady and Senior Captain at Chipping Sodbury Golf Club.

The charity they chose to support was Brandon Trust, which is a local Charity that supports people of all ages with learning disabilities and autism to live as normal a life as possible.

George commented, "It was our absolute pleasure that gave us enormous satisfaction in being able to help in some small way. On behalf of the Ladies Section (who raised £4000) and the Seniors Section (raising £2500) we managed to raise a total of £6500."

A big thank you to members of both sections for their generosity.

The Men's Teams

 Date Posted 25th August 2017 by RG/RC   |   Posted in General

While the Men's 1st Team capture the headlines in Division 1, the 2nd and 3rd teams have also had successful seasons, under the captaincy of Andrew Harris and Tom Hunn respectively.

The 2nd team finished their season in the darkness late on Tuesday evening with a draw at home to Bristol & Clifton - both sides had already secured promotion to Division 2 for next year, and unfortunately the result meant that B&C claimed the title by the narrowest of margins.

The 3rd team battled in Division 6, facing several clubs' 1st teams - so to earn retention in their last game is still an achievement in itself.

Thank you to Andrew and Tom for their work in running the teams - and to all the players (around 55 in total) who have represented the three teams over the course of the season.

 

The Stragglers team have been captained again this year by Joe Mclean, with the normal help from Mike Watts. They have had a successful year as well, winning 8 out of 13 games.

Joe is passing the reigns over to Adam Murrin for 2018 - and all male members are invited to sign up to play in these friendly matches next season.

 

Finally, Clive Reynolds has led the President's Trophy team into the quarter finals of the GGU knockout event. This will be a tough ask, away at Forest Hills, but we wish them every success.
