End of Spring

Dear Golfers!
I hope your chipping improved on your back lawn during lockdown and you
are enjoying a return to the game, hopefully on our wonderful course.
A funny old time nevertheless but storms don`t last forever.

Socially Distance Lessons

I write to tell you that from Monday 1st June I will be showing my face at the
golf club more regularly and that “socially distanced” golf lessons are available.
Such a long lay off has made me realise how much I missed coaching and,
coupled with such wonderful weather and eager students the last week or so,
has really reignited my teaching mojo.
So come on, let`s improve you today!!

Point and Shout Service

Government restrictions currently prevent me from opening my shop “as normal” and, for all our safety, I ask that no one comes inside or touches the door frame.
Please note I am not back at work under contract from the club, but simply wishing to provide a reasonable service in the interim until we agree on a resuming date.

The club will be releasing soon some guidelines about the pro shop but in the
meantime, rest assured, infection control measures are in place. I can operate a
“Click and collect” service (it has been amusingly referred to as “Point and shout”)
for everyone. So far, many of you have been messaging or ringing, telling me what
you require and the items have been waiting for you. Pop 07890 021575 in your
phone (you can always try the shop 01354 657255), befriend me on facebook or
messenger, whats app or email me with anything your require. I want to help you!

The various equipment companies I deal with are nearly all back in operation, albeit
with skeleton staff, so orders are possible but it is not next day Amazon Prime delivery.
There have been several pluses over the last couple of weeks – a bit more golf and
prior to that the ability to get on top of all those jobs that I never have the time to do.

Unlimited Golf in June, Just £3.33 a day!

Lastly, can I bring your attention to our unlimited golf offer for June. With so many
people still furloughed, a great opportunity is possible for 30 days golf with great
weather on our brilliant course – just £3.33 per day for as many holes as you can!

If you know any of your friends or family who may be interested, ask them to get
in touch and the process will be made very easy for them by yours truly.

 

Hope to see many of you very soon, best wishes, Alex

March Golf Club open despite the elements

Members and visitors, I enjoyed a wonderful 9 holes this afternoon on hand cut greens.

With many local competitors (courses) closed, we were playing a full course, albeit one winter green and a few mats on the par three holes. Having to carry my bag was a small price to pay to enjoy great company and weather.

So if you want a game this Christmas period, come on down to March Golf Club, but please leave your trolleys at home.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all, Alex

Calling all women, existing, new, intrepid and enthusiastic! This coming Sunday 17th November, midday at March Golf Club, our club Pro Alex is holding a free of charge coaching session specifically for ladies.

One of our ladies, Gail, has progressed from absolute beginner to a confident, competent golfer in a very short period of time. She says…

“My husband wanted me to learn golf so we could play together. Just to shut him up I booked some 1:1 lessons with Alex, March Golf Pro, then joined in with the Ladies Academy. In just a short time I`ve won some competitions and got a hole in one!! Made lots of new friends and am completely hooked on golf!”

So we look forward to seeing some new faces just before midday. If you have any questions, queries, require directions or need a welcoming voice please call Alex on 01354 657255 or email alexoldham@btinternet.com

 

Mens Captain 4Ball Better Ball

   Competition Report – Mens Captains 4-ball better ball  (Saturday 23rd March)

In the traditional opening club competition of the golfing season, 44 golfers from March Golf Club teed off in near perfect weather conditions. This was the first competition of the year played from the back tees, and the change to a longer course proved quite challenging for many of the pairs.

The winners, with an excellent score of 45 points were Andy Lilley and Tom Sharpe. Second were Hugh McGarvie and Darrell Ladds with a very creditable 42 points, closely followed by Stan Dunn and Mark Crawley with 40 points.

A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 162-yard par 3 15th hole. A  magnificent shot inside 6 feet secured the prize for Gary Holmes.

Prizes were also awarded to four players (Stan Dunn, Baz Smith, Mark Crawley and Gary Holmes) who secured birdie two’s on the day.

Club Captain, Alan Jones, would like to thank everyone who took part on the day. He would also like to thank the greenkeeping team for presenting the course in such good condition in the early part of the season.

Thanks also go to the team from Classic Catering for the very welcome bacon rolls half way round, to our professional, Alex Oldham, for organising the start sheet and cards and also to our Competitions Secretary, Derek Wisbey, for processing the scores.
