March Golf Club Google Calendar
A Guide to Installing the March Golf Club “Live” Calendar

Introduction:  
Traditionally, March Golf Club has issued an annual diary listing club events (matches and annual social activities). However, as the golfing year progresses, the printed diary does not reflect potential changes to any match/competition dates and times nor additional use of the clubhouse for such things as wakes and private functions. Of course, changes to matches and competitions is always made as a last resort, but it is inevitable that amendments will happen from time to time. The Club’s web site diary always displays a “live” diary but this involves logging onto the web. Therefore, we are offering Members an alternative way of always having a copy of an-up-to-date diary, available on a mobile phone, tablet or desktop.

What is this new diary?: 

The alternative diary uses the free Google Calendar, displayed within the free Google app available for Android phones, iPhones, iPads and Android pads. The diary can also be added to your existing device calendar so that all your events are visible in one place (the normal way of differentiation is by using alternative colours for each diary).

How do I obtain a copy of the new diary?:
The process of obtaining the new diary is simple and involves no expenditure and you really don’t need to be “techie” to install it.

Instructions:
1. Use/Obtain a Gmail account:

Many Members already have Gmail accounts, which give immediate access to a Google Calendar and, if you don’t have one, it’s a simple matter of obtaining one by clicking on the link below and filling in the form:

The Club hosted a Halloween Evening attended by over forty members and guests.

March Golf Club is extremely sad to announce the death of Maurice Wiles following a short illness. Maurice had been a long time member, Past Club Captain and President. He also worked tirelessly on the course for many years, carrying out many Green Keeping duties which, collectively, helped the continuous improvement of the course. Maurice was also a superb golfer and took time to help develop young and new members of the Club. He will be hugely missed by so many and our thoughts are with Janice, his wife and family.

BBQ CupSeventy Eight competitors took part in the 2015 BBQ Cup on a hot and relatively calm summer's day. The winner of the Cup was Gary Wiggins with 39 pints, second was Paul Corney with 38 points (on count back) and third was Gary Neugebauer with 38 points. The evening BBQ was cooked by Derek Rowlett, Gary Wiggins, Steve Parrish and Paul Corney and the meal and evening's entertainment was organised by Glenis Jones and Brenda Softley. The fantastic disco of Vern (Stars on 45) completed an excellent day.
