Spring Meeting Message April 2020

Our President, Glenda Yeldham and all of the committee members hope that everyone is keeping well and fit at this difficult time 

This year has definitely had more downs than ups as far as our golf is concerned.  At the beginning of the year golf courses were closed due to the torrential rain and now they are all closed because of the lockdown. One good thing, by the time we are allowed to play, the courses should be in excellent condition.

Today should be our Spring Meeting at Luffenham Heath Golf Club when players would have been competing in a 3 ball alliance for the Wendy Johnson Trophy.  Unfortunately due to Coronavirus this has had to be cancelled but we are grateful to Luffenham Heath for agreeing to host this event in April 2022 (as the spring and autumn events for 2021 have already been booked in the diary).

Given the recent beautiful weather that we have experienced, today is a little disappointing being slightly cooler but it is still dry. We are in desperate need of some rain for the gardens and golf courses, which we wouldn’t have anticipated saying a few weeks ago.

We are monitoring the situation for future events having already postponed the match against Nottinghamshire until next year. Again we are very pleased that Longcliffe golf club has agreed to host the match in 2021.

We will keep you all updated with future events via our website, as and when things are firmed up.

We hope at this difficult time you are finding plenty to keep you occupied, perhaps there should be a gardening competition instead as we are sure all of you who have a garden will have spent a lot of time getting it into pristine condition.

The priority for everyone is to stay safe. We send our condolences to anyone who may have been affected by this terrible virus and our thanks to those still working to keep us all going.

In the scheme of things, it would be nice to play golf but this may be a long way off. For now, please just take care and stay safe.
