Message from the Captain

Season end
As the competitive season has finally drawn to close, I will take this opportunity to congratulate all the winners of trophies this year. It’s good to see some new names (with new handicaps!) appearing on the lists and some familiar ones too.

As the winter months are with us we can now start and enjoy the pleasures of searching endlessly for golf balls either plugged in the ground or hidden under the blown leaves.

Hopefully conditions will allow us to be able to play golf in what will continue to be very trying times for all of us.

Stay safe and help to keep others safe too.

Steve Belchamber

Message from Head Greenkeeper
Due to the current covid restrictions all traffic management (ropes, hoops etc) are to be classed as an immoveable obstruction and not to be handled.

Players must take relief if such an obstruction is impeding their shot

Dress Code

In light of Tyrell Hattons recent success and fashion statement and following discussions on this, can I draw your attention to the Clubs dress code and re emphasise that "hoodies" are not acceptable golf attire for Wearside Golf Club, no more so in fact than designer ripped jeans. ??
I hope this avoids any unnecessary misunderstandings on this subject.

Thank You

Socialising in Clubhouse

Dear Members

From Wednesday today Wednesday 30th September it is illegal to socialize indoors with anyone that is not part of the same household or support bubble, including in indoor areas of golf clubs.

Whilst our clubhouse will still be open for business and table service will continue, we would ask that members adhere to these new legal requirements and sit at separate tables unless you are with people from your household/support bubble. This applies to both the lounge and dining room.

Bar and restaurant staff will be keeping a watchful eye on everyone to try and ensure this new legal requirement is being met and I would ask all members to do their best to comply.

Let's all do our best to keep safe and carry on enjoying our golf!

Rob Willis

Honorary Secretary

Message from Competitions & Handicaps Chairman - Finals Day
Finals Day
Due to the strange year, we have all endured, the knockouts started late this year and in an email sent to members, I allowed play by dates to be relaxed. This has unfortunately led to a situation whereby it has become necessary to give an extension until Saturday the 17th of October.

The Vets final weather permitting will go ahead this Sunday. If other finals line ups are completed and Members want to arrange their own date they can do so but it must be before the 17th of October.

Thanking everyone for their patience.
