With the Spring forward of the clocks and the start of British Summertime we are all looking forward to the new golf season and, of course, personal and club success.
Many of us have welcomed the sight of some little ducklings, the first of many clutches, we hope, on the course.
Regrettably this brood seem to have suffered casualties already and efforts to photograph the remaining chicks on Sunday evening were rather frustrating, as mum was rather nervous.
Where have all the swans gone?
I am quietly enthusiastic about an owl family however.
Watch this space.
Captain Chris Smith and Martyn Ball hosted a well supported in-house day at the races on Friday 14th March.
The whole event was professionally organised, betting facilities were available, for those wanting a flutter, a delicious four course meal was served, all of the day’s Cheltenham races were viewed live with our new HD projector, with extended screen at the far end of the restaurant and the atmosphere could only be described as vibrant.
The image shows Martyn & Chris in action raising funds for Ruskin Mill College with both a raffle and auction. The “pirate’s” year in office is setting a cracking pace and we wait with eager anticipation for the next event. Well done!

Following a most interesting AGM on Thursday and the passing of the honour of Captain of CSGC to Chris Smith we were given a rare treat at today’s Drive-in.
Without hesitation and with calm assurance Chris smote the ball 183 yards, first time, a touch right of the centre of the fairway, to the applause of the appreciative onlookers. As seen in the attached image his follow through and balance were text book style.
The chance to support Chris, in his target to purchase a mini bus for the special needs students of Ruskin College, will provide us all with some exciting and varied opportunities and we all wish him great success.
