It was a great start to the season for Ken Wilkinson who had the perfect way to shake off the pandemic blues with a Hole in One.
Ken was playing in the Seniors Competition on Monday morning and played his ace on the 12th hole. Congratulations Ken on joining an exclusive club with a Hole in One in competition play.
The exceptional dry April weather has delayed the recent drainage works from knitting back into the course.
Therefore, with immediate effect and until further notice, all recent drainage works are to be treated as Ground Under Repair (GUR) Rule16 applies.
In addition, the area of soft mounding between the area of the 13th and 17th greens is also GUR until further notice.
Don’t forget when you are playing from a bunker that the local rule on Covid19 still applies until further notice.
It’s official … its the start of the season and following in the traditional manner, today was the Captain’s Drive-In. This was a drive-in with a difference as current restrictions curtailed any social activity associated with the event. Both Graham Brown and Lilian Allison struck superb shots down the fairway and in so doing, became the first Captains of High Gosforth Park Golf Club, our newly renamed club. Well done to you both and best wishes for a successful year in your roles.
Its been a while since we have used the scoring software so please check your phones before the 1st competition on Sunday.
On the day of the competition you must sign in before you tee off. Open the howdidido app and go to todays competitions.
At the end of any normal membership year, we would have been invited to the Annual General Meetings of the Ladies Section, the Men’s Section and the Seniors’ Section, in addition to the Club AGM. Obviously, this has not been a normal year and the AGM’s were not held. A composite report is attached in lieu of a Club AGM. Please direct any questions or queries o the Club Secretary via email email@example.com
Preparations are well underway for the 2021 season for the Rabbits and Inter teams from High Gosforth Park.
The first event for the Inter team is at Wearside GC on 17th April, while the Rabbits start a week later on 24th April at Bishop Auckland GC.
Both teams have 9 fixtures this year and a team of 8 HGP players are required at each event.
For the 2021 season the handicap range to qualify to play in either team has been amended slightly, where players with a Handicap Index between 7.0 and 14.4 play for the Inter team, while players with a Handicap Index between 14.5 and 28 qualify to play for the Rabbits team.
An HGP male member, over age 18, can play in the events, so if you fancy a game of competitive golf, representing your club, playing in one or at multiple events, please get in touch with Iwan Owen for the Inter team or Tommy Watson for the Rabbits team.
The full fixture lists are posted on the “Rabbits” section of this web site, along with some more general information about the teams.
