Many thanks to all the members who played in my President’s Day today and congratulations to all the prizewinners large and small; there were over 30 members who had a win of some sort. The weather was extremely kind with lots fo sunshine and not a single drop of rain. Jon and his staff had double cut and rolled the greens this morning resulting in super fast surfaces. The results will appear shortly along with prize winners lists for the Men and the Ladies. All prizes can be collected from Brian King throughout the week. Thanks for being there and making it a great day for me.
Candy’s 4 ball vouchers donated to support the Ladies County team (along with other prizes kindly donated by members) raised £164. Candy sends her thanks to all those who bought tickets.

It was another get together over lunch and coffee on Friday, 15th June, for some of the retired members of the Vets section. This occasion was supplemented with a slide show on the TV showing a collection of old photos of members past and present, taken over the last 30 years and more. Many thanks to Sharon Percy for arranging the event.
The Parklands Juniors played at home in the junior league on Sunday 27th May against the top of table Westerhope and we were unlucky not to come away with a win, but finished with a very respectable draw 6 – 6. It was another good win for our number one, Ben Jones, who remains unbeaten in the league this season and his performances have been noted by the Men’s team Captain Chris Bowman and he has been invited to play for the Men’s team.
On Bank Holiday Monday 28th May, four lads went to the City of Newcastle to play in a Texas scramble; Kane Mason, Harrison Sewell, Josh Barrass and Finn Bell. They finished 9th out of 16 teams – well done lads.
Lilian Allison had a great result whilst representing Parklands in the regional medal finals played at Richmond Golf Club on Saturday, 26th May. The winners of the ladies medals competition at Club Level go through to represent their clubs at one of 6 regional finals within the country. Lilian was in a field of 118 in her regional final at Richmond where she returned a net 75 to finish 8th in the competition. With the top 10 from each of the regional finals going through to the Grand Final played on Thursday 16 August 2018 during England Golf Week, Lilian will be off to Frilford Heath Golf Club. Well done.
Members of the Men’s Section are reminded that they are limited to entering one name (normally their own) on the Men’s Competition Entry sheet on a Sunday morning.
Committee members should not normally need to enter any names as their names are already on the sheet.
In the interest of fairness please cooperate.
