Captain’s message 2018

After playing Rickmansworth golf course for many years, my dad (Peter), brother (Lee) and I decided to join the club in the start of the 2016 season. Being a new member it was a great honour to be asked by Peter to be his Vice Captain in 2017 and to be the Captain of Rickmansworth Golf Club in 2018.

My family have been associated with Rickmansworth Golf Club for over 50 years. My grandad and his two brothers were members in the 1960s, with my great uncle Albert Bartlett being Captain exactly 50 years ago, in 1968. This is also the second time my dad has been a member as he was a junior member during this time.

Huge congratulations to Peter Maestas who captained the club in 2017. He has done a fantastic job, and I would like to say thank you and I hope to be able to follow in his footsteps and do the same this year.

I also would like to introduce this year’s Vice-Captain, Jake Jacobson. Jake will be helping me this year, and I’m sure will make a great Captain in 2019. I would also like to wish both the seniors and ladies Captains a fantastic season this year.

A mention must go to Jon Darby and his team. They are doing a fantastic job in the pro shop and looking after the course and I look forward to continue working with them this year.

Playing team golf in the club matches was new to me and I have thoroughly enjoyed the friendly competition against the other clubs. This was a great way as a new member to get to know the other members. For those members who have supported the club matches, I would like to ask for your support again this year. Any new members who would be interested in playing in the club matches, the matches are played in a friendly manner and are a good opportunity to play some different local courses. If interested please contact me or keep a look out on the club notice board and diary on the website.

As a captain I would like the general feel to be a “club” so I would like ask members to support the Rickmansworth Golf Course Pro Shop and The Fairway Inn. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and you will find the other members in there both before and after their rounds.

My Captain’s Charity is Bloodwise. My brother Lee, was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2015. I am pleased to say that he has the all clear now, this due to research that has been done and needs to continue to help improve future knowledge and treatments. Bloodwise have changed the world for people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood disorders – but they won’t stop until every single one of the 38,000 people diagnosed with a blood cancer each year survives and can live their lives to the full.

You can support the Captain’s Charity by donating at my Captain’s day, or by visiting this link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/martin-bartlett6

I hope as a club we can have fantastic year of golf in 2018, and I hope see you on the course!

Needle Shield played at Bushey Country Club 14-Oct-2017

This year’s Needle Shield was played at Bushey Country Club, a 9 hole golf course, which made the start somewhat interesting. We all teed off from different holes; 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th, with 2-3, 4 balls at each hole in a kind of shotgun start, but different. Three holes in, I was notified that one of our players had sustained a hand injury and could not continue with the match, so Rickmansworth were down to a team of 9 healthy players. When the scores were totted up at the end, it was clear that Ricky would not be winning the Needle Shield in 2017. We limped home with 266 points, but even with 9 players we did not finish last. The winners on the day were Bushey Country Club, with a very healthy points tally. The day finished with a very nice meal and of course a few drinks, for some to celebrate and others to commiserate. A big thank you to all the players, it was a long day and I very much appreciate you giving up your time and giving Rickmansworth Golf Club your fantastic support. There was no sweep on this occasion, but the Rickmansworth high scorer on the day was Mick Lee with 35 points.

Final results for the 2017 Needle Shield are below.

1) Bushey Country Club 356 points

2) Little Hay 293 points

3) Panshanger 285 points

4) Batchwood 274 points

5) Rickmansworth 266 points

6) Stevenage 264 points

HFL Rickmansworth v Bushey Away Match Report – played on 23-Sep-2017

The team gathered at Bushey Country Club for the second leg of our local derby, which is always a competitive affair. The weather was looking rather glum, but we were assured by the ever so accurate weather people, that it was to brighten up mid-morning. The gun went off, and we were away. The first match lost to Bushey by 1 point, match 2 was a draw, match 3 lost by 2 points and match 4 lost by a point. So far, all the matches were extremely close. At this stage Rickmansworth were only 4 points down and a good final round could swing the result in our favour. The final match of the day unfortunately lost to Bushey by 3 points, so it was a win to Bushey by 7 points. Final scores were Rickmansworth 187 points to Bushey’s 194 points. However, as we won at home by 14 points, the cup comes back to Rickmansworth as we won the aggregate by 7 points. The sweep was won by Mick Rogers and Dave Miles, again, with a healthy score of 41 points. Well done gentlemen, and once again a big thank you to all who played on the day.

Peter Maestas, Captain 2017
