Management Corner

Strategic Plan

The Planning & Development Sub-Committee has been working on a draft 10-year Strategic Plan for the Clubhouse for the past few months. The work is approaching completion and the draft plan is to be presented to the Management Committee for its consideration.

Team Golf

Finals evening on Thursday 26th July drew to a close ten weeks of evening golf over nine holes for ten teams of six, who completed individual cards on the first and last evening and then pairs played betterball with each of the other teams for nine weeks, with one rained off.

This format produced a really good mix with member as one never knows who you will be playing with each week.

Congratulations to the League winners, Mike Battisons team ‘Two plus Four.’

Also to The Champions  Carole Roes team ‘Roe the Boat.’

Presentation to John

From the Club Captain

The extreme weather conditions of a very wet start to the year followed by a hot and dry summer have made the upkeep of the course very challenging for the Greens’ Staff. A few comments have been made regarding the lack of sand in the bunkers and I reiterated this to Adam, one of our Greenkeepers as we headed out to rake a few of the bunkers. Although Adam disagreed with my views, I knew better because I play the course every week! Our first task was to test the depth of the sand and to my surprise we found that in the lower parts of the bunker, there was up to 150mm of compacted sand. To transform the hard-base back to fine sand we used metal rakes, always taking care not to break into the soil underneath, as this would contaminate the sand. On completion of this task, the sand was redistributed around the bunker and no imported sand was required to complete the task. The energy I needed in helping Adam to break up and rake the sand in only 3 bunkers, ensured I was finished for the day and not fit for any further physical work. Adam kindly made no suggestion that I eat humble pie!

On the first day of July, we held our Mixed Open which attracted a good entry and as usual was very well organised by our Ladies. Test Valley won in the morning round and a Hockley pair in the afternoon.

The number taking part in the Junior Championships was lower than last year; however, this was more than made up by the superb scores registered in the morning round. Jasmine Jury scored 49 points, Patrick Harris 45 points, Jenny Myers and James Parry both 43 points. For the second round of the day, it was decided that only 3 Juniors with the lowest gross would go out again. Oliver Stuart came out on top with a gross of 159, James returned 161 and Patrick 166. The scorching sun in the afternoon made for a very tiring round and as you would expect the scores reflected this. Our thanks go to Chris Geary for running the day and to George Clelland for keeping check on the scoring. Unlike some of us, the Juniors were very pleased to learn that their handicaps had been significantly reduced and especially Jasmine who was cut 6 stokes. Congratulations to all of you.

The Pro’s Clubhouse Knockout again proved to be a very enjoyable evening and a very successful one for the Ladies. Katherine McLaughlin overcame Claire Monkhouse in the final and the winning Dropout was Carol Young (alias the mother in law). Well done to you all and special thanks to Malcolm and Jane for all their hard work in making it a great evening.

Promethean Cup winners Sue Masser (Lady Vice), Brian Wright (Captain), Mary Panter (Lady Captain) and Graham Marshallsay (Vice Captain).

The Husbands and Wives Trophy, organised by last year’s winners, Simon and Debbie Wills proved to be good day for George and Jennifer Clelland who scored a tremendous 44 points. Paul and Linda scored a creditable 38 points to come second.

In the men’s interclub knockout competitions, our Gales team playing away at Stoneham lost in a very tight match. Well done to you all and thanks to Charlie House for managing the team so well. Our Annodata team had a convincing win against Goodwood at home and now go on to play Cams Hall also at home. In the friendly matches, the men are continuing to do well, winning against Cowdray Park and Basingstoke, drawing against Lee on the Solent and losing to Blackmoor.

Every year, the Club enters a team for the Promethean Cup at the Royal Winchester Golf Club. Alresford last won the Cup in 2002 and 2003. This year, the Club Captain, Vice Captain, Lady Captain and Lady Vice Captain all played well to beat teams from 21 other Clubs. The name of Alresford Golf Club will now be engraved on the Cup for the year 2018. Well done team.

Brian Wright

Ladies Section

This month we have said ‘good bye’ to 2 special Ladies. Angela Peel, past Ladies Captain and Diana Hampton who have both moved away. We will miss them enormously.  We wish them happiness in their new lives and good golf in their new Clubs.

The beautiful warm weather has continued all through July and our Greens staff are working extra hard keeping the greens… green! Our fairways, like all courses locally, are beginning to look a little brown, but at least our balls are running well.

The Grannies was held at the end of June. It was such a warm day we decided to make it a 9 hole competition. I think overall this was a popular decision. Lots of Ladies had a nice handicap cut and the worthy winner was Liz Petheram.

The Mixed Open which is run by the Ladies, was another great event with many compliments paid to our Club by those attending. For the last few years we have even had a couple come from New Zealand… well they probably don’t come to the UK just for our Open but they always enter and this year won a few prizes to take home as well.

And now to my personal highlight… I would like to thank all of you who came to my Lady Captain’s Day and for all your lovely presents and cards. I really was overwhelmed.  We were blessed with super weather which helped. I think the whole day had a ‘family’ feel about it and all of you seemed to enjoy the ‘No Stress’ approach to golf.

Also, having a massage, followed by a large bowl of prosecco jelly, at the end of hard days golf should be compulsory! I couldn’t have managed without my helpers who so kindly gave up their day, so a massive thank you to them all and to Annie who helped with the organisation and kept me calm!  It’s certainly a day I will never forget and so many lovely memories – I could fill this whole page writing about it!

The next day Brian, Graham, Sue and myself went to Royal Winchester to play in the Promethean Cup, this is an event for Captains and Vice Captains. It was started after Royal Winchester’s Club House burnt down as a thank you to all the Clubs who had helped them out. It’s a big event and we were delighted that we managed to bring the Cup home. The Promethean Cup was last won by Alresford in 2003.

The following Tuesday was our Ladies Invitation. Another beautiful day and well organised by Sue. My lovely guest was Sandra from Chilworth who played really well managing to birdie the 16th! Sandray and I were really pleased to win the event. I would love to say my handicap was coming down after all the golf I have played but needless to say once I have a ‘medal card’ in my hand, it all goes pear shaped!

On 22nd July, The Douglas Cup, which is a County annual junior stableford competition, was held at Barton on Sea. I am delighted to report that our own Millie Jonathan, Jenny Myers, Rosie Rooney and Jasmin Jury all took part with Millie winning (44 points) and Jenny 2nd (43 points) terrific scores so well done to them all!

Best wishes

Mary

Mixed Matches

In glorious weather we are playing our way through the mixed matches organised for this year but would welcome more support from you all. You do not need a playing partner or a low handicap – everyone is welcome. We get to play some great courses away and welcome teams from those clubs to Alresford.  There are currently three lists on the board. Sunday 5 August at home v. Hayling Island, Sunday 12 August, away v. Alton and Friday 24 August at home to Bramley.

Please sign up for one/all of these matches if you can. We need you!

Match Committee Report

World Handicap System

The implementation of new World Handicap System (WHS) is still some 17 months away, but we’re starting the preparations now. WHS will be a major change to the way handicaps are managed. The current system in the UK is an incremental system, where small changes are made to your handicap more or less every time you put in a qualifying score. WHS is an averaging system so your handicap will be based on the average of the best 8 gross differentials (the difference between your score and the CSS) from your last 20 scores. One effect of this is that a ‘bad’ score may not result in an immediate increase in handicap. Another effect is that for your handicap to be reflective of your playing ability, everyone will need to submit more than the current minimum of 3 qualifying scores per year.

I’m often asked if we will need to put in every score into the system. The answer to this question is no, you will not have to do this. However, everyone will be expected to record more than just scores from competitions, so it will be possible to submit a score from any round that you’ve pre-registered the intent to submit a score and which is played to the ‘Rules of Golf’ much like the process used for Supplementary Scores today.

England Golf has produced a document of Frequently Asked Questions about WHS. We will put a copy of this document on the Club website in the Members’ area

 

Men’s & Mixed Invitation Events

The sign-up sheets for these events have been posted. We need you to sign-up now!

The Men’s Invitation is on Sunday 19th August which, at time of writing, is only 26 days away and the number of entries so far is quite low. This has always been a good event which has been enjoyed by members and their guests. We play 12 holes of American Greensomes in the morning before the main event of 18 holes 4BBB in the afternoon. The cost is £67 per pair for coffee on arrival, lunch and 2-course meal in the evening. Guests who have society handicaps or handicaps which don’t have competitive status are welcome and would compete for a separate prize fund.

The Mixed Invitation is on Sunday 9th September, so still a few weeks away. The format this year is a round of 4BBB followed by dinner. The cost is £48 per pair to include a 2-course meal in the evening.

We had to cancel the Mixed Invitation last year due to the very low entry. This was an embarrassing situation for members who had invited guests and for the Club. I would urge you to support both these events which are a great way to show off our beautiful course and our hospitality to your friends.

Winter League/Knock-outs

In the blazing heat of the summer, the Winter Mixed Foursomes and Lombard Foursomes have come to an end in the past few weeks. The Winter Mixed was won by Ashley Wright and Jane Scott with Drew and Kathryn Fielden as runners-up. The Lombard was won by Gary Mugford and Ian Jones with Richard Lane and Dave Seager as runners-up. Congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who participated.

A Look at the Rules

Question.

A player, taking relief from an immovable obstruction, drops a ball from waist height. He then addresses the ball and causes the ball to move. He was then informed he dropped the ball improperly and could re-drop the ball to correct his error. Is this procedure correct and what penalty stokes are applicable if any.

R and A

Vets Section

Bad back.

Well, mid-season its still busy (and hot) out there. Thankfully there have been no more episodes of heat stroke (your captain was the only victim we know of and that was not on the golf course)

Since my last report we have played friendlies against Test Valley (won) Hockley (draw) Weybrook Park (won), Tylney Park (lost) The Army (lost) Sandford Springs (lost) Bramshaw (draw) and Waterlooville (result not in at time of writing). So its been mixed picture but the good news is that players are continuing to sign up in good numbers. The exception was the replay against Waterlooville and my thanks go to the match captain, Graham Lumb, for getting a team together finally.

The Vets past captains day was a great success. 13 past captains, together with the current captain and (non-playing vice-captain) attended for lunch and many played golf as well. It was a pleasure to see some of our older members tottering about. Joe Kitchen started on 10 and just played 9 holes. He was vets captain 28 years ago. The trophy was won by Stuart Slater despite the current captain having a better score on count back (but being sensibly excluded from winning – “just saying”). Stuart also won the front nine. Keith Turner won the back nine and Bill Pescod was nearest the pin on both 10 and 18 (in 2). Thanks to Drew Fielden for a military grade planning exercise and for making it a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Looking forward to August we have now closed the Vets Invitation and made the draw, with a large number of players involved. AND don’t forget the vets flag competition on the 15th August

ALRESFORD GOLF CLUB PRO-AM

Thursday 6th September

 The Alresford PRO-AM has been running for over 25 years and is the largest such event in the Hampshire PGA calendar attracting over 200 competitors and professionals from not only Hampshire but all over the south of England.

If you would like to play we still have some members slots and some limited availability for visiting / corporate teams. Please speak to Malcolm Scott for the AM and PM prices.

It really is a great day and one of the best organised and supported Pro-Am’s you will ever have the opportunity of playing in. Great course, great food and great prizes. One not to be missed!

WOULD YOU LIKE TO SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION TO THE GREENSTAFF ?

As members will be aware the Greenkeeping team is short handed at present. If you would like to offer a couple of hours labor to assist with raking of bunkers – this would greatly aid their efforts. Please speak to the Secretary or Adam Brimson (Deputy Course Manager) if you see him on the course.

FRIDAY EVENING CATERING

The kitchen will be open for supper every Friday evening during August from 7.00 – 9.00pm.

Come and play 9 holes after work or just come along and enjoy the summer evenings on the patio.

BRITAIN is set to be hit with heatwave conditions once again next week… Rain to FIZZLE out this weekend as heatwave STRIKES again in UK.

Yes – we are all adults (except if you are a junior!) and we have all experienced hot weather before, but it is a proven fact that as we get older, we fail to heed advice and follow the good practice that we may have done in the past. This is not the ‘nanny state’ but we do want to ensure that all our members remain safe on the golf course. Please follow the basic guidelines which are also echoed by NHS England.

HOT WEATHER SAFETY INFO

– an abridged version from GottaGoGolf, a US based golfers website.

  1. Avoid mad dogs and Englishmen

After all, only they would venture onto the fairways and greens at high noon, when the heat and humidity are at their fiercest. Early tee times make the most sense for so many reasons, but — especially if you must golf a little later — keep reading for ways to combat the sizzling temperatures.

  1. Put down the beer

“Water, water, gimme more water” should be every golfer’s mantra, no matter the time of year. It may seem obvious that you have to hydrate yourself to battle summer scorchers, but many golfers seem unaware of the dehydrating effects of fizzy drinks, beer and other alcohol, and even coffee. Don’t allow yourself to get thirsty  – drink continually during your round – on every tee!

  1. Let the grass grow

Health experts suggest that you cut down on nonessential outdoor undertakings like mowing the lawn and washing the car. Do you really need to play golf today ? Of course you do but why not make it 9 holes ? What they are really saying is conserve your energy.

  1. Step away from the table

You may want to carbo-load for the London Marathon, but scoffing down a full English or spaghetti lunch before taking to the course is a hot weather golf no-no that will weigh you down and may cause more than your golf cart to boil over. Instead, maintain your energy throughout your round by nibbling on lighter fare like fruits, veggies, and nuts.

  1. Cover up those six-packs (and we don’t mean hide the beer)

We know you worked hard all winter to get in shape but you’ll want to swap that close-fitting spandex designed to showcase your physique for more breathable attire made of cotton or moisture-wicking fabrics.

  1. Light-coloured clothing reflects heat and light better than dark colours do

Really, who hasn’t dreamed of teeing it up in the altogether when it’s so hot? OK, that may be more like everyone’s nightmare, but this is one time when you might want to take note of the Pro’s dress sense. Now is not the time to wear your normal attire – thick brushed cotton shirt with corduroy trousers and faithful sleeveless sweater !  Pale colours (white preferably is best), shorts or lightweight trousers and a hat. A cap will do but a wide brimmed straw , tilley or panama is best. Hats and sunglasses are must-wears in the summer sun. Glare-reducing polarized eyewear is probably the most effective at shielding your eyes from damaging rays.

  1. Lather up

Don’t skimp on the sunscreen and lip balm. Experts suggest you apply water-resistant 30 SPF sunscreen at least an hour before exposing your skin to the sun and reapply every hour or so thereafter. Golf experts mandate that you at least “don’t burn, reapply at the turn.” Especially ears , face and neck.

  1. 3-wood, 5-iron, or tall cold one?

What do you do when you’re out on the 7th  fairway, facing that long approach ? Reach into your golf bag’s for a cold drink!. Many bags come with built-in cooler liners so use them. Even better however is to rent a buggy or power trolley and take a cool bag with you with chilled drinks. Remember more drinks equals more weight to lug around in the heat. Don’t carry just because you normally do.

  1. Refreshing fashion statement

Nothing makes a summer golfer sigh, “Ah!” more than a cold, wet towel to the back of the neck. Re-soak at each water fountain. Better yet, make a refreshing fashion statement by using a damp  neoprene or cloth neck bandana. Bonus: It keeps the sun off your neck as well!

  1. Finally – Feeling unwell?

Get off the course immediately. Re-hydrate in a cool and shady room. DO NOT DRIVE immediately and tell the Club Officials.

Green News

Great weather for golf! As we all know we are going through somewhat of a drought of late with no rain since May 30th. That’s 60+ calendar days without notable rain fall and none forecast soon. This presents a challenging environment for the greenkeepers work in and to deal with. We are fortunate to have a good irrigation system to keep the Greens Tees and Aprons alive but other outfield areas struggle with no real means of getting water to those areas.

The fairways are struggling to survive in a hostile climate but the plant (rye grass) is hardy and has predominantly gone in to a state of dormancy where it sheds its leaves to conserve moisture in the crown. This state however can’t last forever and with some oppressive heat in the recent weeks it has desiccated some of the grass. We won’t really know how much or little we have lost until more favourable conditions return. We will do all we can to repopulate those areas with our beloved rye  grass as soon as this happens.

With a limited abstraction license on our bore hole and the cost of mains water we have to be frugal with our water usage in other areas Greens and Tees get ample water, but we try not to over water. You have probably seen us probing the greens gaining data on overall moisture in the greens and understanding where hotspots are. This gives us a better idea of how much/little irrigation is required.  In general we have a target between 18-24% soil moisture with our average wilt point being around 10%.

Please pray with us for rain in the near future.

Greens maintenance is scheduled to commence week beginning the 30th this will cause disruption during the week, but we will carry out works as quickly as possible, so recovery can start immediately. The greens will be solid tined, scarified and top-dressed with 40 tons of sand.  We expect a quick recovery as we are not removing any material from the green. Please remember that the maintenance is an essential part of our program for healthy greens in the long term so short-term disruption is a minor price to pay,

You may have noticed the recent addition of reflective strips at the top of the flags. These improve the ease of use for laser rangefinders.

The search for our new Course Manager is progressing well and I would like to thank members of the Greens Committee and Mancom for their support in this. I am so proud of our team of Greenkeepers who have risen to the challenge and continued to present our course to the high standard that we expect. You may have noticed that Mick Goodyear has kindly agreed to come out of retirement and is adding his expertise 2 days per week. Special mention to Adam who has taken over the leadership diligently and effectively. Adam produced the bulk of this article unprompted!

Thank you also to Captain Brian, VC Graham and HPLS scheme member Adrian Lease, who have all volunteered to do additional work on our compacted bunkers.

Here’s to another top month of golf with perhaps a more varied weather profile!

Mark Tiplady

A Look at the Rules

Answer.

The procedure is correct and he may re-drop in accordance with the rules (Rule 20-2 & Rule 20-6), however, the ball was in play when it was first dropped, even though it was dropped in an improper manner (Rule 20-4). When the player caused the ball to move, the penalty prescribed in Rule 18-2 was applicable. Decision 20-2a/4

Not a member of the 100 Club?

The objective of the Alresford Golf Club 100 Club is to raise funds for projects and items requiring capital expenditure that will enhance the Golf Course and/or the Clubhouse. Such projects would generally be considered as ‘extras’ and not necessarily be within the Club budget. The 100 Club was launched in 1987 to raise funds to augment the Centenary celebrations of the Golf Club in 1990, but at the request of the members, the 100 Club has continued to raise funds for items such as the Information Board and Clock on the 1st tee and the Automatic External Defibrillator in the Entrance Hall.

If you’re not a member of the 100 Club, you can become one for as little as £1 per month. Shares in the 100 Club are purchased for £1 per month and there is no limit on the number of shares which can be held. In general, most members have between 1 and 5 shares and pay by monthly direct debit, though it’s also possible to pay quarterly or annually. Each share is allocated a number which in entered in the monthly draw. The top prize is £100, with a second prize of £50 and four other prizes of £32. For more information contact George Clelland on 01962 735008 or george.clelland@btinternet.com, or call in to the Secretary’s office.
