Jan / Feb 2018

A big thank you to everyone who attended the AGM and witnessed my election as Captain. I feel very proud to be Captain of Les Mielles Golf Club having been a member for the best part of twenty years. I believe we have a fantastic committee in place who are very focused and committed to working on your behalf and organising a full schedule of competitive and fun golf for the year ahead.

This is the first in a series of Captains Blogs where I will look to keep you informed of our committee’s progress, any club news and upcoming events.

Hopefully by now everyone will have received their 2018 diary and membership renewal, prompt payment will be very much appreciated. If you have not yet received your renewal form, please contact any member of the committee as soon as possible.

As we approach our first friendly match of the season against La Moye, it is pleasing to see so many names on the list wishing to play. Unfortunately due to the overwhelming response, there aren’t enough places for everyone this time out. If you do miss out this time, please keep putting your name down as we have many upcoming club fixtures and you will be considered as a priority in the next possible match as we are looking to give as many members as possible a chance to play.

Our Captains v Vice Captains and end of season prize giving has now been re-arranged to Sat 10 March for which there will soon be a sheet on the board. I urge as many of you as possible to join us for this fun filled day which is always a highlight of the season.

The Hampshire Sevens draw has been made and we start off with a favourable draw at home to St Clements on Sunday 18 th March. Chris Frost, our Hampshire Team Captain, will be organising things as usual and so we look forward to another successful campaign and urge anyone interested in putting themselves forward for selection to get in touch.

Our annual club match against our friends at Chateau Des Ormes has been confirmed with the first match being away on the weekend of the 14/15 April, and the return match at home on 09/10 June.

I am proud to announce we now have a trophy cabinet outside the Pro Shop, this is a work in progress and will develop into something we can all be proud of. If anyone has any outstanding trophies, please arrange to return them as soon as possible we can add them to the display.

Please also be advised that our current competition prize system will be changing in the very near future. We have negotiated with the Country Club a new system where any prize money will be credited to your membership card (instead of receiving a physical voucher) which will enable you to spend the money anywhere within the Country Club facility (Pro Shop, Roccos Restaurant, Driving Range, Crazy Golf etc ). There will be an announcement on this to follow once everything is in place, but I hope that you will welcome the added flexibility this option will give you as a member.

I look forward to seeing you all on the golf course.

Best Wishes

The Captain
