Wow – Rally for Hallie… brilliant!

Just to say a BIG BIG thank you to everyone supporting the Rally For Hallie fund raiser and its not too late to scan the go fund me QR code and lend your support...

The Ladies generously let Alf and Derek storm through 72 hols of golf, just stopping for the odd refuel in a 12 hour marathon starting at 6 am!

Great friend Steve joined them for the last 3 holes to spur them on - very special moment.
Steve and his wife Julie came down from Coventry especially, both said how wonderful the club was and how friendly all the members were along with their generosity.

This has been a real morale boost for Hallie's family and Alf and Derek will keep us posted on progress.

Once again, on behalf of all at PRGC - the best of wishes to Hallie and a massive thank you to Alf Dobosz and Derek Gunning for their amazing 72 holer!

Rally for Hallie – help save a precious life – definitely worth reading…


On Wednesday 23rd, Derek Gunning and Alf Dobosz, will be attempting a 72 hole day of golf at PRGC to raise money for my friends granddaughter - Hallie.
They tee off at 6.00am and are hoping to complete the 4x18 holes by 8.30pm - what a day - what a cause!!

They will be wearing the t shirts with Hallie on the front and a QR code on the back, which directs you to Hallie's GOFUNDME page.

On that page you can read more about Hallie's condition and the target required to hopefully save Hallie's life!

If you see them racing through the course, please help us by letting us charge past, but please don't forget to slip a donation in our golf bags, or ask for a snap of the QR code.

Hallie has to have a daily blood transfusion, and has been since she was diagnosed, also 3 failed stem cell attempts. In 2 weeks time she will know if she can have the life saving treatment. At that point they will let the cancer take over her body to get to 40%, once this has happened they do a full blood transfusion and "train" her blood to attack the cancer cells, once her blood is clear, she will have a transfusion to put it back in her - after that it's fingers crossed.

Our golf challenge is nothing to what Hallie has had to endure, however it's being done to hopefully give her a life - something we all take for granted.

So please RALLY FOR HALLIE!!!'

Clubhouse Refresh Continues…

The Clubhouse and Main Car Park refresh continues apace...

Latest work is to the ladies changing room where Emelia (Nigel's daughter) is repainting.  A new lighting solution is also being introduced over the coming weeks to brighten things up!  Emelia is doing a cracking job and if you need some painting done - we can pass you her details 🙂

We are also renovating the men's shower area over the coming weeks - so please excuse any disruption.

We will keep you posted ...

New Greenkeeper – Huge Impact…

Jack has not been with us long, but has already made a huge impact!  A massive thanks from everyone at the club for your outstanding start and to Chris and Ollie for all their continued hard work!

The course is receiving huge praise from visiting players and lovely to see that those pesky Magpies pecking the greens for chafer larvae will be moving elsewhere for their free lunch at some point in the near future.  Jack has been treating the greens with nematodes, microscopic organisms that attack the developing chafer larvae.  Environmentally friendly, the nematodes are totally harmless to earthworms etc but deadly to the larvae.

So our beautiful greens are going to stay just that - beautiful!


Captain’s Day – Saturday 26th August



Dear All,

I am excited to give you details of my Captain’s Day which this year is being held on SATURDAY 26th AUGUST.  Firstly, I want to take this opportunity to give a big thankyou to the Club Management and their teams, and your Committee, for the support they have all given me over this year.

I would request that you register asap for planning purposes, by entering your name on the Sign In sheets in the changing rooms OR contact me directly either by email – – or telephone 07807 776461.

It is important that when you register you also let me know how many additional family and friends will be attending the lunch and fun social get together after so that we are able to properly manage the ‘après-golf’.

Please feel free to contact me with any comments or queries you may have either by email, telephone or when you see me at the club.

I am very much looking forward to us all having a fun and enjoyable day and sincerely hope you and yours are able to support it.
