The Club hosts and visits many other clubs during the year. The format of these events is usually some form of matchplay, either men, women or mixed and they are an excellent way to meet fellow members and those of other clubs. They also offer the chance to play on some very fine courses other than our own.
Each year, the same names often reappear on the expression of interest list for these events, giving the impression they're for a select few. But that's not the case; while regular volunteers are appreciated, it would be great to see a broader cross-section of membership play in these events.
Certainly, a few spots on each team are reserved for those that need to be part of the team, however the remainder are selected by ballot if oversubscribed. So, next time notification appears on the website regarding an upcoming match against another club, be encouraged to put your name down as I'm sure you will enjoy the day.
