Course update…

Members will be pleased to know that the White Tees will be back on the course again in time for this weekend’s Easter Cup competition. Winter rules will still be in place until further notice though.

Spring Fourball cancelled

Due to the terrible golfing weather at the weekend, the last event of the 2012/13 season, the Men’s Spring Fourball competition, had to be cancelled and it will not be re-scheduled.

Good luck to everyone at the Club for the forthcoming season. The first competition is next weekend’s Men’s Easter Cup – Full handicap Stableford format.

Ricky G.C. 8th Pontoon – Results for season 2012/13

Total prize fund of £148, (won in 4 weeks, @ 37 entries at £1)

Please repair your pitch marks!

As it is  very  wet underfoot at this time of year, please give the course a helping hand by repairing a pitch mark on each green. We all know the damage it causes if pitch marks go un-repaired, so please help out and we’ll have great putting surfaces in the months ahead!

Quick tip: insert your repairer at the edges of the holeplug, not in the middle, and gently bring the edges of the turf together – if you dig or lift the turf it will kill the root. Thanks!

17th Annual TRDC Chairman’s Charity Classic

The annual Chairman’s Charity Golf Classic is once again being organised by Hertsmere Leisure on behalf of The Chairman of Three Rivers District Council. The Golf Day will be held at Rickmansworth Golf Course on Friday 19th April 2013. This will be the 17th successive year of this event.

The format is a three ball Stableford Team Competition, including an individual Stableford with prizes for the first lady and the first gentleman. All are welcome. Official handicaps are not essential, if you don’t have one, it can be allocated on the day – this will be a maximum of 24 for men and 30 for ladies.

Tee times will be between 11.30am and 3.30pm in 10 minute intervals.

The Tournament will finish with the Presentation of Prizes at approximately 7.30pm and all teams are invited to stay.

Rickmansworth Golf Club will once again support this event by entering 4 teams. If anyone else would like to support this event by entering their own team, please see Jim McLeod in the pro shop for an entry form. The cost for a team of 3 players is £99 – please make cheques payable to ‘Hertsmere Leisure’. If you have any queries, please phone the pro shop on 01923 775278 or Kelly Barnard at Three Rivers on 01923 776611 / email: kelly.barnard@threerivers.gov.uk

Last year over £1,400 was raised for the Chairman’s Charities from this event and I am sure that you will want to support this year’s Chairman, Councillor Kemel Butt, in his fundraising efforts for his nominated charity; 9 Lives Furniture.
