I have had to re-schedule the proposed Golf Day from Friday 8 July, mainly because of the limited numbers. Sadly, there were only 6 or 7 definite numbers/names put forward, and frankly, it is just not worth going ahead with it, for so few.

I can understand that, no matter what day is proposed, it will always conflict with someone's plans or arrangements; that's life, I suppose. Also this season has been one of the worst as far as Everton Football Club was concerned, with attention/distraction being drawn more as to whether we would still be in the Premier League come the end of the season.

Thankfully, we are safe now so worries have been allayed as far as Everton is concerned. I have spoken with the Professional at Hawarden Golf Club and re-arranged a new date, being Friday 16 September. Everything is pretty much as before: arrive around 09:00 to 09:30 for Bacon Butties and Coffee, Introduction to everyone and the Tee Times and Order of Play announced to start off at 10:30 am.

Please, please give me an early indication if you intend to participate. This is an enjoyable day of Golf with a bit of a Competition and Nearest the Pins (par 3s) and Longest Drives (Seniors and Juniors) thrown in. Hawarden is a lovely and quite challenging course and has excellent catering facilities as well as a friendly atmosphere.

Should there be any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, Derek Knox, (07565 140075) or del_kath@yahoo.co.uk. Also please let me know of any intentions to attend, and a rough idea of your Handicap. If you don't have an Official Handicap, an honest assessment of your ability would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in anticipation.
