Hello to all members and prospective members of March Golf Club. It is an honour to be Ladies Captain and I am looking forward to my year in office albeit with some trepidation as I have some hard acts to follow. I am hoping that my golf will improve as I will be playing more and I am also looking forward to playing in some mixed matches.
March Golf Club is offering all Ladies, who might be interested in playing golf, the opportunity to experience both golf and the Club. If you are interested in taking up the offer, come to the Club any Monday morning in April, between 10.30am and 12pm and have a go on our practice ground with our Professional to help you, followed by refreshments and a chat in the clubhouse. All you need to do is telephone Alex on 01354 657255 or Michal on 01354 652364 to let us know you’re coming.
Foot Traffic Causes Substantial Damage to Frozen Greens!
Golf greens are fragile & require careful, professional management. A green is a collection of millions of individual grass plants that are very delicate. Putting surfaces are cut at a height from 4mm – 8mm depending on the time of year, which places extreme stresses on the plant. This makes them vulnerable to attack from disease, pests, drought & frost.

The traditional Boxing Day Captains' Drive-In was held on a cold dull day but was thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. The Drive-in was followed by a nine hole Greensomes competition, which was won by Barry Groves and Teresa Layton.
Fifty Four Members and guests attended the New Year's Eve celebrations held in the Clubhouse. An excellent four course meal was prepared and served by Jeff and Christine and their team from Classic Catering and the entertainment was provided by the superb Vern's Disco.
