Bruce’s New Callaway Deal!!

Dear Members,

We are delighted to announce that from 2018 Bruce has teamed up with CALLAWAY GOLF UK as an official authorised retailer and will be able to obtain CALLAWAY equipment for all of his clients and for members of Princes Risborough Golf Club.

Bruce plays with Callaway himself, so when he recommends them, it really does come from the heart!

Callaway are one of the top 4 golf companies out there today so if you are looking for some new clubs – Bruce should be your starter for 10!

Why not have a look now  and let Bruce know what you would like to order for the coming season.

As per Bruce’s coaching, please note that the club make no money from any of these sales – they go straight to Bruce and all ordering will be directly with Bruce not through the club.  Let’s support our Pro rather than American Golf!!

Well played Bruce!!

Amazing CBL Away Win but…

... a narrow aggregate loss.

Our team played Chesfield Downs on Saturday 11 November in the first round of the Chiltern Breakfast League winter Knock Out. With a format of three matches at home and three away this is different to our normal league fixtures. Our away team put in a sterling performance with superb wins for Bob Darvill and Steve Wagerfield (1 Up) and Barry Woledge and Craig Whitworth (3&1). Chesfield Downs is a tough course and this 2:1 away win is virtually unheard of in the league so the guys did really well. Unfortunately “fortress PRGC” did not apply this time and our home team lost all three matches. Overall we lost 4:2 so no disgrace.
 
The league restarts in April 2018 with a home match against Three Locks so all the focus is now on the new season. The matches are open to all members with an active handicap so those wishing to  play and not yet included should contact the Competition Secretary, Barry Woledge.

Speech from your outgoing Captain – What a Year!!

CAPTAIN’S RETIREMENT SPEECH 2016-7

I am truly proud and grateful, to have been part of your Committee: To experience at first hand the special skills, the dedication, commitment, and ultimately the achievements of those of your colleagues who freely give of their time in the management of your golf and social activities . Each of the Members of your Committee has contributed with integrity and enthusiasm and this year would not have been as enjoyable or as complete if that was not a fact. There could have been no better team to act for and to represent the expectations and the reactions of you, the Members.

Beryl; calm, efficient and totally reliable: Her determination has always been to make concise sense of and to convey the intentions of sometimes extended and lively debate.

Sue; I have enjoyed sharing the experience of Captaincy with none better: Always there to share the load; equally. Her views have unfailingly been informed, considered and constructive.

Mark – His quiet efficiency and calm temperament ensured that Members’ funds were always in safe hands.

Neil, David and Jill; your Handicap Committee – A sometimes contentious task applied with strict attention to the rules when applicable and compassionate consideration in general reviews: Members interests have always been their first priority.

Barry – The first challenge for me was to find a Competitions Secretary and I will take with me the satisfaction of knowing that I found the best.

Roy – As Members’ Secretary his experience and advice has informed and influenced many of my decisions and actions.

Nick – The answer has always been “yes” even when sometimes the going got tough.

Gary – Saw the potential conflict in the title of “Management” and took the polemic out of it. Always ready to listen and improve by consensus, he has governed our Club progressively and in the true spirit of friendship and with clear direction, and in the hard work of John, Jake and Bob we have seen the results in the quality of our course.

Bruce must deserve special thanks for bringing to our Club his expertise as a coach together with the idea, now a unique selling feature, of our Academy Course which we have started to use to great benefit and which will mature to be of real and practical value to Members as well as those who look to our website for reasons to join us. I am not sure that we are always worthy of our Class A PGA Professional but I would like to believe that I speak for all Members when I express gratitude for the energy and gravitas that he brought to our Club. I regard Bruce as our “friend in the business”.

There is a special person that I must not overlook; Doreen who works quietly and tirelessly with dedicated green fingers to make our Club welcoming and attractive.

It has been my privilege to act as figurehead of the good ship PRGC and I will step down happy and satisfied with the achievements of the representatives and the Members of our Club.

I ask only that you give your new Committee the support and encouragement I have enjoyed in my memorable year as your Captain.

Thank you.
