Captain's Newsletter

1st June 2020

Dear Highwaymen   ****  The Captain's Corner ****

Step by slow step we are once again able to play our beloved game. The smiles on the faces of those at the club I have seen in recent days have said it all. However, there remains more than a few who still need to take great care because of underlying health issues and they are in our thoughts. Now that the club has opened up more tee slots, I do hope this group can find a quieter time of the day to enjoy the fairways.

The loss of our George Baker, we understand to the virus, is still very raw with many of us and I do so hope he will be the only one we lose. This loss to us and his family is a stark reminder that this virus is still amongst us. Therefore, the discipline of the social distancing guidelines has to be strictly adhered to by us all when playing golf. It is all too easy to forget when one is enjoying oneself.

My thanks to Bill McIntosh for getting the Costello Bowl matchplay knockout competition up and running. We have kept the option of this being able to be played over 18 or 9 holes as the availability of 18 hole tee times is not guaranteed and government guidelines might change if the control of virus outbreak has any setbacks.

Many of you will have known Ron and have chatted with him on many occasions, Ron being one or two greenkeepers that worked at the club since it opened in 1994. I had not seen him in recent days and asked how he was. I was told he had retired a few weeks ago, something I knew he was contemplating for some time. The cold winter days were not getting any easier so I hope he is enjoying his retirement in the delightful current spell of sunny weather. I have asked the club to pass on The Highwaymen's best wishes to him and thank him for all of his hard work over the past 26 years.

Whilst we have the Costello Bowl up and running, I fear it will be some time yet before we, The Highwaymen can return in all our glory. Certainly not until the clubhouse reopens and social distancing measures are more conducive to social gatherings will our Thursday mornings routines return.

In the meantime, I hope I see you all occasionally albeit at a distance at the Golf Club, and that we are all able to get out and enjoy our golf safely and as often as we want.

Keep well, stay safe.
