Social Events Suggestions

Members - we would like to hear suggestions from you as to what you would like to see put on at the Club that might encourage you all to use the Clubhouse more frequently and that would perhaps encourage the younger
members to participate. Remember an empty Clubhouse costs money and if you fill it, it pays the bills!
Please give your suggestions to Liz Day or Neil Hancock.

Tuesday Evenings and Dress Down Friday Night

Tuesday Evenings

Why not come and try our very popular "2 for £13" Tuesday evening suppers. Please book in advance with Neil or Myles.

Dress Down "Fridays"

If you have not tried these evenings I do urge you to come along and introduce your friends to this very informal evening, you never know they may like to come and join the club once they have sampled how good these evenings are! 

Annual Carol Concert 2017

A wonderful evening, enjoyed by a full house, listening to and joining in with Ireland Colliery Band. Photo sequence here.

Annual Dinner Dance 2017

Superb entertainment and Neil's usual quality catering made for a most enjoyable night. Just a shame so many members and friends missed it.

Last Night of the Proms

An almost full house really entered into the spirit of the Last Night of the Proms event on 9th September. Liz Cromwell, whose idea this was, had arranged for the clubhouse to be decorated with union jack bunting and table decorations and most all the guests came in some form of dress relating to red white and blue.
Neil and his team provided very enjoyable typically British fayre during which background recorded music from a New Year's Concert in Vienna was played.
After our meal, a music quiz, based on extracts from radio and TV themes of the 50s and 60s was run (Mike Aves' table winning) prior to the BBC One live Last Night of the Proms being displayed on large screen and sound system.
Everyone joined in with the familiar Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and, of course, the National Anthem.
A slide sequence can be viewed here.

2017 Summer Party

It was a beautiful summer evening for our annual Summer Party with approximately 90 people attending including some new faces which was good to see.

Neil put on a wonderful buffet with so many salad choices that we were all spoilt for choice. I think everyone was very appreciative of the catering, if the full plates was anything to judge by!

During the meal the band played some very nice easy listening music which was very pleasant.

Before the dancing commenced Mr. Captain held an Auction of a few items which brought in about £300 for the Ashgate Hospice. Thanks to everyone for supporting this local charity.

Dancing to Privilege followed. See a photo sequence (courtesy of Liz Day) here.

Captains' Social - June

The Captains social on Saturday night was a great success with over a hundred members and guests attending. It really was fantastic to see the Clubhouse full and buzzing. Thank you to all those members who came along.

Neil produced a really lovely meal and his staff worked hard to get everyone served in as short a time as possible, not easy with the number present, but all went smoothly.

After the meal the Band came on and started to play Beatles music which got a great number up on the dance floor, I don’t think we had a time when there was no-one on the dance floor, which says a lot!

I must say it was a very enjoyable evening and it is again thanks to you all.

Keep supporting these events please.

29th April Social

Another excellent social evening, with more of Neil's cuisine and his team's service and with excellent music from the Northern Line Soul Band. A short photo sequence courtesy of Liz Day here.

Captains' First Dance 2017

A full house of members, family and friends enjoyed Neil and his team's food and entertainment from The Groovy Cats". The draw was made for the car parking space and the winner donated his space back to the Captain's to "auction". Their auction raised a significant sum, again, towards their Ashgate Hospicecare charity. A photo sequence from the evening is shown here.

New Year's Eve Party

The New Year's Eve Dinner Dance was a resounding success. Neil and his team served excellent food and the band, "The Buddies", new to us at the Golf Club, provided rich entertainment over three sets during the evening. 

If you have to cancel..

There were still a few members who are not abiding by the Club’s cancellation policy for its social events. Would all members keep in mind that if cancellation is not received 48 hours prior to the day of the event they are required to pay in full.
 Obviously consideration will be given to exceptional circumstances.

Friday Evening Fun

A big thank you to everyone who has supported Friday Nights’ Mixed Fun competitions this year. All-comers are welcome; the more the merrier. Finally, a big thank you to both Garry and Barbara Sims for organising these Friday Night Fun competitions. If you have not previously played in these fun nights why not consider giving it a go next year. Download the 2018 fixture list here. The events are open to every-one including off-peak members. Bring your non-playing spouse / partner along for the meal.

9 Holes and Supper - April through early September. A variety of informal mixed competitions.  Every Friday evening except the Captain's Weekend and couple of other dates. An end-of-season Annual Dinner is also held (see photos of 2017 dinner here). 

Children's Party

See the menu link to the left (or above if you're on a mobile device) for a sequence of photos from this highly successful party.

Ladies Christmas Dinner 2016

After the Christmas competitions the ladies enjoyed a superb meal which was followed by the presentation of prizes to the winners.

Before the singing of carols with music played by Pat Willmot we all had to draw a Christmas tree with bobbles, a star and presents underneath on the back of a paper plate which had to be placed on the head to draw it! Liz Day was the winner!

See photo sequences here and here.
