I hope you are all well and either enjoying your golf at your new clubs or maybe even enjoying a break from golf and reminiscing about the "good old days at the Racecourse"!
You may remember that many of us expressed a desire to play golf together again in the form of a "Racecourse Society" - and to play out some of our more prestigious trophy matches. As we approach Spring 2017, it is now time to put this into action! The "NRGC" website is operational and will become the hub for event information, updates, your news etc. and can still be found at www.nrgc.co.uk
The general idea is to play the following matches: Bogey Competition, Carole Scott Cup, John Ives Memorial Cup, Parker Hart Trophy and Racecourse Cup. The trophies for these are safely stored away in readiness! The venues will ideally be quite local for us and include lunch/refreshment and the aim is also to subsidise the cost of these events, as far as is possible, from remaining club funds.
The first step however, is to establish how many of you will still be interested to take part in all or any of these matches.
Could I ask you please, in the first instance, to let me know if you are interested to play - or at least to receive further details? If you are not interested in taking part, Just send me an email and let me know - firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in touch with any ex-members and would like to spread the word around - please do!
One other event I would like to mention is the Thursday Evening League. We played this at Deanwood over a 13 week period last year from early June to early September. It is the intention to hold this competition again this year and more information will be put on www.nrgc.co.uk nearer the time. However, can I please ask you to let me know if you intend to join us …. Remember, it runs for around 3 months, is a 9 hole competition with starting times from approx. 5.30 pm and it doesn't matter if you can't play every week! Only your best 7 rounds count!
So, to recap, this is what we'd like to know:
- Would you like to play in any of the Trophy Matches?
- Do you want to be removed from the mailing list?
- Would you like to play in the Thursday Evening League?
Looking forward to hearing from you - and if any of you would like to join in with the organising - volunteers welcome!!
