Bunker Enhancement Programme Underway…

Jack and the greenkeeping team are now hard at work on a bunker enhancement programme - the 9th has already received the Jack treatment and they are working their way around the course.  So many positive comments coming in from visiting golfers.  Well done and thanks for all the hard work!!

Sad passing of Mike Newbury – funeral details…

Good afternoon All,

We have been asked to pass on this sad message.
Mike Newbury, a previous member and club captain, and who some of you will remember, sadly passed away recently and I repeat below his wife, Sue’s email.
As you will see if you wish to attend either/both the funeral and/or celebration, you need to advise Sue direct.
"I have now made arrangements for Mike’s funeral. They are as follows:
GreenAcres Chiltern, Potkiln Lane, Jordans, Beaconsfield, Bucks HP9 2XB at 3.00p.m on Friday 20th October. 
Followed by a funeral reception at Maidenhead Golf Club, Shoppenhangers Road, Maidenhead SL6 2PZ
I’m also arranging for a webcast for live coverage. If you’re unable to attend & would like the link please let me know
This will be a celebration of Mike's life so please no somber black outfits.
No flowers but donations to 
Thames Valley Hospice, Windsor Road, Maidenhead SL6 DN 
or via the funeral directors Funeralcare, 27 High Street, Maidenhead SL6 1JG
I’d be grateful if you could let me know whether you’ll be attending just the funeral or both the funeral & reception.
With best wishes

Please support Nat’s new Wednesday Evening Barbecue (with a country music vibe)…

Nat has taken over the Wednesday evening slot from Trish and is offering a cracking Barbecue every Wednesday from 6pm.  Sit inside (or outside depending on the weather) and enjoy a perfectly cooked barbecue with the usual trimmings.  All for just £10 or £15 for a premium sirloin steak option - try and find that quality and those prices for an evening meal in Princes Risborough!!

Please support Nat's new venture and enjoy the background vibe of some good ole country music!!

More upgrades for the clubhouse…

Sarah has fitted new blinds to the conference room enabling a wonderful choice of beautiful views of the course or total focus on the presentation.  A second projection screen option will be added shortly which will enable a theatre style presentation for circa 60 people.

New window glass was added to the Princes Suite by Jacko and repainted outside - thank you Jacko!!

The pro shop is undergoing renovation work (lots still to do) and Luke is fast becoming the Pro Shop Manager, working into Sarah as the overall Clubhouse Manager.  We are keeping it simple - focusing on things that have been requested by members and guests.  The large QR code on the white board takes new visitors directly to a course guide to help them better navigate the course.

On request, we relocated the ladies trophy cabinet to a more accessible location - this has the added benefit of creating some space in Luke's new pro shop area.

We have also given pride of place to the club championship board and created a future proofed solution for the captain's pictures, with the very oldest of the pictures now featured prominently in the ladies and gents changing rooms

Our friends at Rebellion loved our advertising so much they rewarded us with a beautiful hand built point of sale solution for the bar...

And last but certainly not least, the buggy sheds in the upper car park have been completed...



Update – Temporary Winter Greens are now No Play Zones (NPZ)

Why are the temporary winter greens currently No Play Zones (NPZ) not just GUR?  Because we are trying to protect them as much as possible prior to use.

If your ball lies in an NPZ, you must take relief, and you must also do so if it interferes with your area of intended stance or area of intended swing in playing a ball outside the NPZ (e.g., if your follow-through would create a divot in the NPZ even though your ball lies outside it).

[relief under Rule 16, means dropping within one club-length of your nearest point of complete relief not nearer the hole. You must take full relief, so can’t still be standing in the GUR / NPZ after taking your drop]
