A new golfing year, a new logo and a new website – welcome back to the NAPGC!
Firstly congratulations to all the finalists of 2015 –especially those who made it to the Team Series Grand Final held at Breadsall Priory, Derbyshire back in October. This was the first time we have held all the finals in one weekend and the feed back from you has been very positive.
This year’s finals will be held at Frilford Heath Golf Club in Oxfordshire -it has three great courses. England Golf use this venue for their own Golf week.
By now the draws for our competitions have been made – so try and get your rounds played early to avoid congestion at the busiest times of the golfing calendar.
Good news – we welcome back to the NAPGC fold Bird Hills Golf Club Berkshire. They have managed to reach an agreement with their management company and work together to provide competitions for their members.
Sadly last year we lost Hurst and Blue Mountain GCs in Berkshire and Tamworth in Staffordshire due to closure and redevelopment.
As a direct result from our survey sent to all clubs last year we have made changes to several of our Team Series competitions. We know we cannot please everyone but the overwhelming factor seems to be that you would prefer to see more Matchplay competitions. We hope therefore that you will support our two new Competitions for 2016 – a Ladies Pairs Matchplay Knockout and a Mens Team Matchplay knockout. Full rules and entry forms have been sent to the clubs.
If you have any news you would like to share with other clubs then please let us know. We want to hear if you are struggling to keep your club going or perhaps you have found a way to increase your membership which you would like to share.
Please send items for inclusion to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
