It's not just the glorious few days of sun that indicate spring is nearly here. Daffodils are out in full bloom, the hedgerows are turning green and…Johnny Carr (Yorks IT specialist http://www.jc-it.co.uk/) is out of hibernation and playing again!
Joking aside, it has been great to see so many playing and practising these past few days. Shot of the week must go to young Jack Varley who scored a fantastic hole-in-one on the 17th. At just 12years 8 months, I wonder if Jack is the youngest player to score a hole-in-one here at York GC?
It's not just the golfers who have been busy on the course. Our 'course helpers' have been busy too with further work being carried out on boundaries and general maintenance. The numerous hours that the many helpers give is greatly appreciated.
The annual Captain v Vice-Captain match was played on Saturday in glorious conditions.
As always, the friendly match was played in great spirit with the Captain & Alan Walmsley coming back from 2 down with 3 to play, to win their match against David Dodds and Phil Sinton.
On Tuesday Ian and I played our final Capt/Pro match. This time our opposition was David Dodds and Peter Bullivant or should I say Vice and Vice-Vice Captain! In what was a very close game we managed to let a dormy 2-hole lead result in a half.
On behalf of Ian and myself many thanks to everyone who challenged us and thank you for the kind donations towards the Captain's charity.
In amongst our deliveries this week are some superb shirts with the York GC logo.
In a choice of colours these shirts are at a special price of £39.99.
