Where has the year gone, it only seems like last month we were at Brian Le Tissier’s Drive In. Your Committee has worked tirelessly throughout the year. So much is carried out behind the scenes which perhaps on too many occasions goes unnoticed.
On behalf of you the members a huge “Thank You” to all the Committee members and the many members who have helped in so many ways.
I have enjoyed working with the Committee in 2017 and look forward to another year, trying to maintain the progress going forward. 2020 is a big year in the history of L’Ancresse Golf Club as we will be 125 years old. A working party is being set up to help members celebrate this event. We want it to be for and about the members and if you have any ideas for ways to help mark this momentous occasion please let the office know so they can pass the ideas on to the organising committee.
Thanks go to Ken and Kevin in the office for all the work they do to see the club running in the right direction, they also do a lot of unseen work. Iveta and her staff do a great job serving and making the food for several functions and keeping the club clean. Their hard work is much appreciated. A big thanks also goes to Micky Boot and his colleagues for all their hard work regarding the dinners that are held in the club.
Captain Pete, thanks for a good year and I hope you have enjoyed your year in office. Working with you has been a pleasure.
Looking to 2018, I wish incoming Captain, Keith Dye, an enjoyable year and thanks for sorting out the prize tables for so many years. I also hope your Vice-Captain,Micky Boot enjoys the year also.
Again I welcome our new members and hope you all enjoy your golf with us at the L’Ancresse Golf Club.
Please do not hesitate to contact any committee member if you have any concerns regarding any golfing matter. We, the committee, know you can’t get everything right all of the time, however understanding and support is always appreciated.
I must touch on the recent States decision to remove part of the L’Ancresse sea wall. The clubs have advised the States in robust terms of the effect this could have on the 15th hole and the course as a whole. Together with Golf Course Management, the clubs will continue to make representations on all aspects and procedures that are taking place
Finally, I am sad to say that 2017 saw a number of members pass away who had been great supporters of our Club and they will be sadly missed.
