From Paul Fileman, Golf Manager: Finally, we are back and let us hope this time it is for good, with no further lockdowns. A big welcome to all our new Members, who joined on the run up to reopening and I hope that you will all enjoy the benefits of being a Member here at Warley Park.
Dom and his team have been working incredibly getting the course back up to standard and their arduous work over the lockdown period means that the course is looking stunning, an amazing feat considering the winter that we have just experienced.
It is great to see that the competitions are back up and running and we will be holding the first of our Race to Le Touquet events on Sunday, April 25th with the Bobby Locke Stableford. All future competition information can be found here.
New Members: For all our new Members, if you wish to obtain your handicap index you will need to complete a minimum of three cards.
Each card must be declared before playing, by registering a social round in the register that is held in the golf office. On completion of your round, simply return the card back to the golf office. The same goes for all existing Members, who wish to enter what was formerly known as a supplemental score for handicap purposes.
If you need any help or advice on handicap indexes and the WHS please feel free to ask any of the staff in the golf office or have a chat to our truly knowledgeable handicap and competition secretary Keith Regan.
The Only Way is Warley: For all fans of the hit TV series The Only Way Is Essex! T.O.W.I.E. have once again returned to Warley Park to film another episode on the course. Pete, Diags and Gatsby completed filming and the piece will be aired in the not too distant future (I will keep you posted so you don’t miss out).
It is great to see the Clubhouse reopen even if initially it is only for outdoors service from April 12th, I know that Jayne and her team are excited to welcome you all back.
Lockers: as you are all aware I made a request in the last newsletter, that everybody who currently has use of a locker to please come forward and inform myself of which locker is yours. Thank you to everybody that has emailed or called to let me know which number locker is in use. For anybody that has not yet come forward may I ask that you do so before April 14th as I will at this time be emptying any lockers that have not been claimed and making these available to anybody who has requested one.
On a personal note, I am incredibly optimistic that 2021 is going to be a superb year for golf and Warley Park in general and as always myself and my team are here to help, happy golfing everybody.
