Days Gone By:
When I first joined March Golf Club, we didn't have a clubhouse anywhere near as good as the current one. We were in a little wooden hut that served as our club house. We ran the place ourselves; the men ran the bar on a rota system while the ladies did all the catering. Saturday afternoons were the highlight of the week. You could get afternoon tea consisting of dainty sandwiches and home made cakes. In fact, as much as you could eat for 2s 6d. The catering was also carried out on a weekly rota. We had a great deal of fun in that old hut. The man behind the bar would call out "Time Gentlemen, please" and it really meant that we all needed another pint. It just shows how the times have changed; nothing free and easy anymore.

Mail on Sunday (Men's competition):
The March team of Stan Dunn, Mark Crawley, Steve Parrish, Nick Carter and Steve Campbell took on a strong Ryston Park Team in the 2013 Mail on Sunday Competition. Despite a sterling performance, March lost to Ryston Park by 1¬Ĺ to 3¬Ĺ. Captain Cliff Jones offered the Ryston Team every success in their next round.
¬†In a chilly but bright window of opportunity, the March Ladies team played the first round of the Mail on Sunday, against the ladies of Lakeside, on the 2nd February.
It was a friendly encounter and our team, Glenis, Anna, Viv, Jo and Ros played well and we won 3 ¬Ĺ¬† to 1 ¬Ĺ .¬† I know we would all like to congratulate them. None of the ladies had played much due to the weather, and they got the job done in a lively and brisk round, on a crisp wintry day.
