We'd like to start this week's newsletter by firstly wishing you a happy New Year, and secondly by asking you a question:
It's an age-old tradition but we're wondering how many of you made a New Year's resolution for 2017?
Don't worry, we're not going to ask you to tell us what it is, but if yours is golf related then remember we're here to help. Regardless of whether you won multiple competitions in 2016 or didn't see your handicap come down once, we'd all like to have a better year on the course in 2017.
With this in mind, don't settle for doing the same again this year as we have lots of ways to help you to enjoy better golf. From a series of lessons to custom fitted equipment to some simple course management tips, come and speak to the team so we can identify areas of your game where you can improve.
Leave us a message here and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.
A Users Forum takes place on Tuesday, 17 January from 6.00pm to 7.30pm in the clubhouse. If you're interested in knowing how the golf centre and Mytime Active operates, then please come along - everybody welcome.
2016 Bandit of the Year
The Bramshott Hill Golf Club Senior Section held their Christmas luncheon and presentations on Thursday, 12 December, but before the presentations it was again time for the award of "2016 Bandit of the Year".
This year the award went to Robbie Robinson, also known as David (shown in full regalia). The regalia and award were presented by Chuck Stone who explained the process of selecting "Bandit of the Year". He considered that anyone who won more money than him was a bandit and, last year there were seven in that category, this year there were nine which meant either there were more "bandits" in the Senior Section of Bramshott Hill Golf Club or that his golf was getting worse. During the period considered for "Bandit of the Year", prize money was awarded to 60 of the 86 members which meant that the winter handicap system was working. This system deducted three shots for winners, two shots for second, and one shot for third for an eight week period between October and May.
The "Order of Banditry" was - First place - Robbie Robinson, second place - Ray Dunkason, third place - Brian Lewis and in fourth place - Peter Paine.
