Invitation Day 2011_1The annual Mens' Invitation Day is a time when members are able to share golf, food and fun with their guests; where the course can be presented at its best and where old friendships can be enjoyed and new ones formed. Each year the club is able to organise a successful and well attended day and this year proved to be no different and was certainly more eventful than most.

The day commenced with the traditional cup of coffee and breakfast followed by a nine hole four ball, better ball Stapleford "starter" with a ham salad recovery lunch. The eighteen post prandial holes started in showery conditions but the threatening weather won the day half way round when the skies literally opened and torrential rain flooded the greens. A decision was made to stop the competition after all groups had played nine holes and all competitors retreated to the clubhouse for showers, drinks and an evening meal.

 

Presidents Putter 2011_5The annual President's Putter was held on Wednesday the 24th August. Twelve couples took part on a wonderful summer's evening.

A special cake, made and decorated by Becky Wilding of Becky's Cup Cakes, was presented to Glenis Jones and then promptly eaten by competitors. Wine for the meal was kindly presented by Peter and Glenis Jones.
