2019 Ladies President Day

 

The Ladies President Kathy Duffield held her day on the 10th September and asked those playing or attending the tea afterwards to wear pink at some stage of the day in remembrance of those who have suffered from cancer.  The format of the competition was an 18 hole stableford with the ladies also playing for the Diamond Jubilee Rose Bowl.   After playing the ladies returned at 5.00 pm for tea and the presentation of prizes.   Glenda Langmead was the winner with an amazing 41 points, Heather Clements was second with 38 points on count back from Ali Atterwell who was third also with 38 points.   Glenda was also presented with the Diamond Jubilee Rose Bowl.

 

There was a nearest the pin on the 3rd for players up to a 25 handicap which was won by Sarah Hales and a nearest the pin in two (but not in the hole) on the 8th for players with a handicap of 26 and over which was won by Diane Davidson.

 

The Ladies President then presented two other prizes, one was for the neatest written competition card which went to Pearl Taylor and the other was for the person the Ladies President considered wore the most pink and this went to Christine Joy.

 

After these presentations the Ladies Captain Kay Bates presented a voucher for £100  to Dot Frewin from Miss Designer Golf.   Dot won the stableford competition held on the 3rd September which was sponsored by Miss Designer Golf.

Another fabulous weekend at Dereham Golf Club

Following on from last weekend’s successes with victory for Dereham in the new junior GolfSixes league, the ladies in the Scratch League and the men’s second round triumph over Royal Cromer in the Myhill Trophy, the Club continued their great run with a victory for the Juniors in the KK Smith Trophy beating Middleton Hall away by one hole, despite having to give 52 shots over the four games.  Meanwhile the Men’s scratch team were beating Dunston Hall 3-2 at Dereham.  Well done to everyone involved in those events.

This week was Captain’s week at Dereham with two Men’s competitions on Wednesday and Saturday, and the Ladies competition on Tuesday, all well subscribed.  The weather was generally very good, despite the forecast, with a near heatwave on Saturday afternoon.  The results were as follows;

Ladies Medal

Winner - Maisie Farrelly               Net 70  

Runner-up – Carole Harrisson    Net 73

Men’s Stableford (Weds)

Winner - Matthew Strudwick     39 points

Runner-up – David Dobbs            38 points

Third place – Alastair Simpson   37 points

Men’s Medal (Sat)

Winner - David Ashfield                68 net

Runner-up – Chris Newton          68 net

Third place – Stuart Hudson        69 net

This year’s overall Captain’s Prize went to Richard Wilson. (70 net – 39 points = 31)

Following the presentation of prizes, the members and their guests enjoyed a great evening party with the wonderful ‘Harley Street’ band providing really great music, and Heather & Lauren Pincott supplying a superb buffet.  The clubhouse was packed and there was plenty of dancing and good fun the whole time, a really memorable evening.

Sunday morning saw the Captain’s Champagne Brunch with 32 players, most with hangovers, tee off with a greensomes Stableford shotgun start at 8am, followed by a full English breakfast with Prosecco provided by the Captains.  Carol Parker and Kevin Mann won the Champagne prize with a score of 42 points.

My thanks to all people who, with their selfless contributions, helped to make the competitions and the Saturday evening party a great success.  Finally, special thanks to my lovely wife Heather and daughter Lauren who made my whole week and Sunday birthday unforgettable with their hard work and fabulous support.  Thank you both so much.

KK Smith Competition

Dereham Win
On Sunday 12th May we went to Bawburgh for the Junior Myhill 1st round (actually called K K Smith Trophy), we won Three Up. Maisie and Lilly, Liam (Captain) and Joe played some outstanding golf on a beautiful sunny day. This match was a Junior Myhill debut for Lilly, her good performance bodes well for her season.
This 1st round result is particularly sweet as Bawburgh beat us in a close run Final last year at Eaton. 

As usual our Juniors were great Dereham ambassadors. Bawburgh looked after us very well. Our four players all commented they could have played better, which is really encouraging for their season’s golf.
Dereham golfers have again competed against a club with bigger resources, a Tranmere-esque result.

 

JUNIOR NEWS

Within the Junior Section Andy Brown has provided invaluable support and encouragement to young golfers over a number of years, most recently leading the Junior Committee. Andy has decided to step down from the Junior Committee. 


The Club would like to thank Andy for his energy and ideas, all geared to encourage our Junior Golfers. The 6's Event next month bringing fun competition to our youngest 5 hole golfers illustrates Andy's drive to get more golf time for children. We wish Andy all the very best for the future.

Simon Crane, will take on the role of leading the Junior Committee, the Committee comprises Liam (Junior Captain), Joe (Junior Vice Captain), Vicky Dann, Christine Webster, Sarah Wicks, Will Cross and Graham Howe.

 

Ladies Nine and Wine

The Ladies held a ‘9 and wine’ social evening at the Club. Ladies from other golf Clubs were invited to play the course and ladies who are new to golf to have a go and find out more about golf. Although it turned out to be a rainy evening the ladies enjoyed their time at the Club and getting a taste for golf. Thanks go to Andy Marshall for his expert tuition and seeing the ladies off for their games. Here are pictured some of the ladies who enjoyed the 19th!

 

Girls Golf Rocks

For the second year running the Club won the right to host Girls Golf Rocks, alongside a small number of other Norfolk golf clubs. This initiative encourages children to take up the sport, it’s a route to getting people to our club.
All the families were welcomed by Kay, Mike and Nigel. Mike’s welcome focused on the ambition of the club to see more children playing golf, also how our sport teaches children attributes and skills, not just how to swing a club.
Nigel’s welcome included the importance of keeping visitors safe as we travelled across the course to the practise ground. John Batty’s comments during the event were very welcome and timely as we’re all invested in each other’s safety. Next year we’ll do better at this aspect of the event, it can be tricky managing groups of various ages and sizes.

Lots of girls gave golf a go, thanks to Will for making the session and tuition fun for the children. Girls Golf Rocks ambassadors Eva, Charlotte and Maisie were team Captain’s. Things got really fruity when hitting parents for points became the focus - not sure who won?

We want to make Girls Golf Rocks a routine event in our Calendar, there’s a need to constantly attract new young golfers to the sport and to Dereham Golf Club. Children keep growing, this year we know we’ll lose four talented golfers from the Junior Section. Consequently, we need at least four new young golfers.
Every Monday evening through to mid-August the Junior Section play’s golf- 5.30pm to 7.00pm ish. If you know of children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews who’d like to try golf then contact Will Cross or Simon Crane – the Junior Section will make them very welcome and look after them. 

Finally, there’s a new golf initiative across Norfolk clubs for young golfers, SixesGolf. This is coming to Dereham next month, more details on this later.

We are pleased to confirm that Gareth & Rebecca Williams, owners of The George Hotel in Dereham, have been appointed as our new caterers. We feel that with their reputation and locality this should be a good move for both parties.
To ensure we have every chance of success with Gareth & Rebecca they have spent the past 3 days cleaning the kitchen and ensuring that all the equipment is in good working order, and will start with producing a meal for the Sportability group today, the Scarning Bowls Club tomorrow and the match against Bradenham Cricket Club on Sunday. The day to day Bar Snack menu will be introduced gradually over the next few weeks to allow for an understanding of opening times and likely requirements.
We wish Gareth and his team well and trust all members and visitors will be able to enjoy quality food and service going forward.

 

Who are Harley Street Band?

After the recent success of SkaSouls, HARLEY STREET BAND, will be playing live at DEREHAM GOLF CLUB on SATURDAY 3rd NOVEMBER 2018 AT 7.30PM only £10 A TICKET, come along and enjoy a fun evening.


Want to know more about Harley Street? Look at their website: www.harleystreetband.co.uk


We are a very professional group of musicians who have a huge amount of fun on stage and love what we do. 

That enthusiasm comes across in every performance and is one of the reasons clients come back time and time again. 

Originally formed back in 1982, (blimey, that makes us sound old!) the line-up has gradually evolved over the years. 

Between us we have over 100 years of experience and expertise at all levels of the entertainment business 

from 20 people in someone’s front room (yes, really) to 2000+ people in large venues.


What is different about Harley Street? 

Well apart from the obvious (we are consistently excellent!) 4 members of the band sing lead vocal. 

This gives Harley Street a unique and original sound.

 

 

RICHARD WILSON HAT TRICK

Congratulations to Richard for topping the NCGU Scratch league order of Merit for the 3rd year in succession, a brilliant achievement, well done.

 

 

GONE WITH THE WIND !

Its back, many thanks to the hard work of David Ashfield and Nigel Elmar and their respective companies for painstakingly restoring the weather vane on top of the club house. The silhouette of a golfer cut a forlorn figure for many years, but is now back to its original state.

Myhill Agony

On Sunday, Dereham played Sprowston in the Quarter finals of the Myhill Cup.

Played over 144 holes in a foursome format, with morning and afternoon sessions, both sides played to an exceptionally high standard, in some pretty extreme heat.

We came so close, losing to Sprowston by just one hole and it literally came down to the last match on the last green.

A sterling performance by Richard, Nigel, Stuart, Simon, Ryan, Jamie, Matthew and Julian, I'm very proud of the way you dug in and nearly pulled it off.

A special thank you to all the caddies and supporters, you outnumbered those supporting Sprwoston by miles.

Next year will be a different story!

Safeguarding and Welfare Reminder
Transport and Photography: 

Just to remind everyone to be mindful when it comes to our junior members. The Safeguarding Children’s Procedure and Social Media Policy are there not only to Safeguard our Junior Members but also to offer guidance to all Members. 

Two issues to draw your attention to are photography and transport. 

Photos of Junior Members should not be taken, shared on social media or any other means. Dereham Golf Club has its own Facebook and Twitter Pages, there are specific Officers of the Club who can post pictures to these with parental consent. 

Whilst the Club welcome and support junior members participation in matches and events both at Dereham and away, we don’t provide transport. Parents/carers are expected to make arrangements for their child’s travel. 

If members wish to provide transport for juniors, they do so at their own risk, and are not acting on behalf of Dereham Golf Club and must seek parental consent. 
Where an emergency occurs it is best practice for an adult not to transport a child alone but to have another adult member present. 

Be mindful of your actions and don’t leave yourself vulnerable to allegations both now and in the future! 

Thanks 
Sarah

 

Team Spirit
Head Green keeper Tristan would like to say a big thank you to all the part time green keepers who have all pulled together and worked extra hours over the past couple of weeks whilst Chris has been on paternity leave, to keep the course in top condition.

 

Gentle Reminder
If any member wishes to make a complaint, please could you kindly address your comments to the Secretary, either in person, via email or letter. Please try to avoid approaching members of staff directly as they are often busy providing a service to the golf club.

PLEASE USE THE COMMENTS BOOK
If you have any observations, comments, compliments or complaints would members please use the Comments Book in the Club House or if appropriate write to the Secretary. In doing so, we can ensure a timely response. This includes items of maintenance if you notice something that isn't working properly.

It is becoming common practice for members to approach the officers or members of the GMC who may not know the answers or occasionally forget, we are all busy people. 

Whilst we will always try to help and take our roles seriously, we are also members of the club and would occasionally like to enjoy a round of golf without trying to answer questions or queries.

Thank you

 

LOCAL RULE CHANGE - WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT
The sleepers in the pot bunker to the left of the 3rd green are now to be treated as an immovable obstruction and relief can be taken without penalty. You may lift the ball and drop it within one club-length of the nearest point of relief but no nearer the hole (rule 24.2). THE BALL MUST BE DROPPED WITHIN THE BUNKER. 

You may elect to drop the ball outside and behind the bunker under the penalty of one shot.

New Website
In accordance with our commitment to improve communications with members and visitors we are pleased to announce the launch of our new web-site. 
The website contains far more information and as can be seen from the photograph it is now adaptable to laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
There are a few more updates to install, however as it is 95% complete, we thought it beneficial to launch it now.

 

 

Message from the Greens Team
The greens team have done an excellent job over the past few months in keeping the course open whenever possible and in making preparations for the new playing season.
Please can you be mindful of the following:
Pitch marks: Please be mindful to take a few moments to repair pitch marks when on the greens, and look out for those left by those in-front of you. It doesn’t take many seconds, but makes the world of difference to keep the greens in tip-top condition.
Divots: The use of the divot repair bags appears to have gone out of fashion with some of us. It is important that we get into the habit of doing so now that the growing season is upon us.

 

Captain / Pro – Sign Up Sheet
Yes its back, the Captain pro sign-up sheet will shortly be put up in the men’s changing room. We are planning a minimum of 20 matches and can add more if there is demand.
