2018 Captain - Keith Dye


February 2018

Gentleman – Apologies for the late (very late) first entry of 2018 on the Captains Blog!

Drive In

Let me start by saying a massive thank you to all who braved the elements on Sunday 7 January.

For those who witnessed the inaugural speech, it certainly reached “new heights” for the incoming Captain!!!

The support by the hardy few, who huddled around the green in my own personal “Hurricane Le Lacheur”, was much appreciated.

My chosen charities:- namely Clic Sargent and Diabetes – Guernsey, were delighted to see a starting collection of over £600 between them – thank you all who contributed.

To my family, volunteers and staff on that day, a huge thank you.

What a start to my year –

Many congratulations to those who have again braved the winter weather and supported the very popular winter-league programme.

To all of our ‘new’ members, a warm welcome to the L’Ancresse Golf Club.

I hope you enjoy your golf and our amenities in ‘your club’, as we pride ourselves in having an honest and friendly golf club to be enjoyed by all members.

Our bar facilities, and our friendly staff, are there for you to enjoy, including a limited but excellent choice of foodstuffs, always pleasantly supplied by Iveta, our Bar Manager.

I am sure you will not be disappointed with what is available in our bar, including our meat draws, lottery draws and, of course, meeting new friends and associates.

Captains Charity Draw

Many thanks to all of you who continue to support my draw which will ensure increased donations to my charties.

Competitions (Walton Heath)

To those who have signed up for the Walton trip in April, many thanks – it will once again, after all these years, be a tremendous trip.

To the ‘new’ members on the trip, hopefully this will be a first of many visits to play , on what is after all,  the opportunity to play on ‘2’ Ryder Cup venue courses.

St Clements (April 13-14)

Info will be posted on the notice board ASAP, to allow names to be put forward, for this very popular visit by our Jersey oppos.

Other Competitions

The Henderson Qualifying and the Pro Shop Challenge competition sheets will be posted soon.

Please remember that your elected committee, along with Kevin (Club Office manager), plus myself and Micky (Mr Vice) are always on hand to deal with any concerns/issues that anyone may have regarding “your Club”.

I would like to end this 1st edition of ‘My Blog’ by thanking all those who have sent me e-mails, phone messages and cards, over the past weeks, showing your support for my personal loss.  It has been immensely appreciated.

It goes without saying that I am hugely proud to be your Club Captain and representative for this great Golf Club.

I will do my utmost to uphold the traditions that the Club is renowned for.

Finally, have a great golfing year on the L’Ancresse Links.

Your Captain
