In a change to previous plans, the prize presentation and dinner dance have been split up.

Presentation will now take the form of a fun game open to all on Sunday December 1 with a shotgun start at 9.30am, followed by the prize-giving at 2pm. Lunch will be available for £6 and can be booked at the bar. Entries for the golf are on a sheet in the lounge.

The dinner dance will now be at Dunsley Hall Hotel on Friday December 6 and can be booked in the lounge. The cost is £24.99 per person.

The golf club Finance Director Steve Ellis got the figures right this week as his number was drawn out in the 200 Club, winning £100.

Don’t forget the Rabbits Presentation Dinner at the club today (Fri), open to all members. The evening is bonfire themed, with fireworks. Contact Byron Blessed immediately if you want to attend.

Tony’s Tip: with the greens slowing down going into winter, your approach to putting should change with the conditions. You should gradually strike the putts more firmly, and as you do, allow less for any breaks you can see on the green.
