What an honour and a privilege it is for us to have been asked to be Club Captain and Ladies Captain and a first for Donnington Grove to have a Mr & Mrs at the helm. We are very lucky to be able to represent such a wonderful club and we thank Rob & Anne-Marie for asking us.
With Ian carrying on in the role of Senior’s Captain, we will be supporting Newbury Cancer Care again as our charity. Last year the charity benefited from the amazing sum of over £9500, courtesy of the generosity of Donnington Grove members. It seems that as members you are very keen to support not only a worthwhile charity, but one that benefits us as a local community.
With all the best laid plans for the start of our year, because of the coronavirus we have had to delay all events until it is safe to once again socialise. We plan to run all the board comps when circumstances allow and also as many of the fun events (such as St Georges Day, VE Day) as we can. We will be running the champagne roll up this year, with a little help from our friends, and hope to get it underway as soon as we can safely do so. We have planned for several social events this year, the first being a Band & BBQ, featuring The Consuls, at the club on Friday 29th May; we are hoping that this will still go ahead but we will update you all in due course.
After a very wet winter when many didn’t want to venture out on the course, the weather is now improving and we aren’t allowed to play. Dave and his team, however, are still busy working to get the course ready for us all to enjoy and we thank them for all their hard work in these uncertain times. Thanks also go to Tom and the Pro-Shop team for everything they do to support us and the members.
We couldn’t let our Drive In day pass without celebrating in some way, and since it has turned out to be a beautiful day, we popped the cork on a bottle of fizz and had a mini drive, chip and putt competition in the back garden. Obviously, we couldn’t hit the driver as the neighbours would be less than impressed by broken windows, but we did have a chipping comp into a bucket and dusted off the putting mat too. After some fun today we still plan to hold our official Drive In on one of the Weekend Medal dates once the course has re-opened.
We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to you all for your support and we hope to see you all on the course as soon as we can.

Stay well, Stay safe, Stay home

Ali & Steve
