The Past Captains met for dinner on Friday to celebrate the many achievements of Norman Hodgkiss over the years:
40 years ago Norman was Club Captain
30 years ago, Norman was the Captain of Gloucester Golf Captains
20 years ago, President of Gloucester Golf Captains
17 years ago, Norman became Club President (for 10 years)
13 years ago, Norman became Gloucester County President
A formidable record, and one to be proud of - the Club certainly is.
I would like to place on record what an absolute privilege it was to present the prizes at the Junior Presentation Night on Tuesday 3rd November. Jon Thompson is running a superb group of Juniors, who are representing the club extremely well. All are to be praised on their success this year. These youngsters represent the future of the club. I remember when, over 25 years ago, my sons received Saturday morning lessons from Stan, and now Greg is a full member who thoroughly enjoys his golf. Hopefully these Juniors will continue to enjoy their golf, and progress to becoming full members in the future. Congratulations to you all, and good luck for 2016.

The PGA concluded yesterday in awful weather, which didn't stop the players continuing the excellent scoring, especially Kevin Harper, who fired a magnificent 68 in the worst of the conditions to take the title by one shot from Toby Hunt.
Credit to JK and his team for the excellent presentation of the course - and their work in coming back to squeegie the greens in the rain, allowing the event to finish!
Also thanks to Sam Bidder and Adam Gerrard for assisting the PGA with the scoring on the course.
Overall a great week and a great advert for our club.
