WELLOW GOLF CLUB CAPTAIN’S CHARITY 2015/2016

WELLOW GOLF CLUB

CAPTAIN’S CHARITY 2015/2016

 

 

Last season’s Captains of Wellow Golf Club Jan Marsh and Kev Foot had a successful year raising funds the their chosen charity; The Wessex Neurological Department at Southampton General Hospital.

 

 

 

 

 

So on the 3rd December they presented a cheque for £2800 to Professor Rosaleen McCarthy from the Wessex Neurological Department.

The work this department does is clinical/research strands which then helps GP’s and Neurosurgeons/Neurologists in diagnosing and treatment of people suffering with brain disorders ie: dementia.    This was raised by various events including raffles, book sales, cake sales and competitions throughout their year’s captaincy.

Well done to everyone involved and thank you to all those that contributed throughout the year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wellow Juniors- January 2017 Monthly Report

Wellow Junior Section  

2017 Season Preview 


 

The New  HAMPSHIRE JUNIOR LEAGUE (HJL)

South West Hants Junior League (SWHJL)has now been replaced with a new league called the Hampshire Junior League, which will be known as HJL.

This is supplemented with a Junior Academy league which caters for new juniors taking up golf and will  be for handicaps 36 to 54. A special short course will be used covering 9 holes totaling approx. 2000 yards.

A total of 5 teams will compete this year, namely Barton, Stoneham, Bramshaw, Romsey and Wellow.

The first fixture was held  on 22nd April. Wellow came second in the HJL and fourth in the Academy League. This was a great result and it appeared everyone enjoyed the new competition. The next scheduled fixture on 6th May at Stoneham will have to be rearranged.


Upcoming

We are scheduled to play Barton in the next round of the Green Jackets competition on Sunday 21st May at Wellow.

We have been drawn to play Bramshaw in the 1st round of the Poppy Golf competition again at home.


Danny’s Clinics

Danny Harris has put together a Spring/ Summer Training programme for the Juniors. We are placing a lot of importance on this programme and other activities to try and recruit more juniors to the section.


Lastly…..

The Easter Raffle took place under the guidance of Gill Lobb and Jane Leigh. A princely sum of 133 pounds was raised mainly through the generosity of our membership.

Danny’s Blog- The Start of Another Golfing Year

ANOTHER YEAR OF GOLF 


Happy New Years

Happy New year everyone, may you have many pars and birdies this coming year! Thank you for kind feed back from my first effort, please feel free to ask some questions or give me a subject you would like me to cover.

So we are at the start of a new golfing year, hopefully you’ll be thinking about improving your game, lowering your handicap or maybe improving a certain aspect of your game.

Now it always baffles me, these next 3 months should be the busiest time for me, however I always get told two similar quotes, “I’ll sort some lessons out when the weather improves” or a particular favourite of mine, I’ll get my game in order and start hitting it a bit better, then I’ll come and see you for some lessons” REALLY!!!

Would it not be better to work on your game now so when the weather warms up, your all ready to go, or see me for a course of lessons so you have something constructive to practice, rather than doing all that practice ingraining the fault or working on the wrong thing so mine and your job is much harder to get things back on track.


NO Excuses

With the new teaching bays at Wellow, or the fact that I do evening sessions at chandlers ford range, there really isn’t an excuse to not get things improving now! That way you can enjoy your summer golf as it will all be sorted by then, and I can get out and play some golf! Lol.


Junior Golf

Lastly a quick congratulations to Zak Leigh who won the years first trophy, The New Years Cup, with an impressive 39 points, closely followed by this years Vice-Captain Michael Hillman.
