RIDE FOR CHARLIE GOLF DAY
Many thanks to everyone involved in making the #RideForCharlie Charity Golf Day so special.
The day was a great success and the total raised so far is fast approaching £2,700.00
Amanda Holland and Helen Worrall did an excellent job with the raffle, raising over £570. There were only £500 worth of tickets, when those sold out people just made donations which is amazing. Thankyou to everyone who donated prizes.
Thanks also to Craig and Jodie and their team for catering for everyone on what proved to be a very busy day at the club.
Sam Shaw provided vouchers for the winning teams, with the first placed team also getting a #RideForCharlie Mug each.
In first place were some visitors to the club – Paul Barlow, Steve Moore, Freya Moore and Mike Hewitt with a score of 88
In second place were the team from H Crabtree – Steve Hall, Neil Hyde, John Fernley and Paul Kemp with a score of 87

The football card was won by Carl Garside and his winnings along with his raffle prize are behind the bar at the club.
Simon Webb also has a raffle prize (Golf Glove) waiting for him to collect from behind the bar.
It was great to see the Golfing community come together and raise a massive amount of money in memory of such a special young man.
On behalf of Nick and Sarah Craig and the #RideForCharlie Charity – Thankyou
Your support and generosity is massively appreciated.

The Quiz master, John Northover, entertained everyone with a range of challenging questions along with a number of ‘quirky’ ones!
A great evening was had by all and due to people’s generosity, we raised £430 for the Lady Captain’s chosen charity which is the British Heart Foundation. Well done to everyone who took part!
May Day Bank Holiday at New Mills Golf Club
Each year teams made up of a lady and Gentleman from New Mills and a lady and Gentleman from Withington Golf club compete in the May Day Bank Holiday match.
This year it was the turn of New Mills to host the event to enjoy a Texas Scramble over 18 holes. For once, the weather was kind. Blue skies, no wind and temperatures in the mid 20’s ensured we all had a fantastic game of golf. The course had dried nicely and the ball was running well on the fairways which ensured some incredible scores.
After the game we all sat down to a delicious meal created by our new chef Craig followed by our Lady Captain and Jackie Piper presenting the prizes.
Congratulations to the winners (pictured) and a huge thanks to Jackie Piper from New Mills and Julie Webb from Withington who organised a fantastic day.
We all look forward to playing at Withington next year.
Winter Weekend 2018
52 members and guests enjoyed a fabulous weekend’s golf at The Belfry.
Arriving on Friday, 27th April, after bacon rolls and a great welcome from our club Captain , Mr. Garry Worrall, we played betterball on the Derby Course bringing in some great scores. Although the weather was cold, thankfully the rain stayed away. Well done to the winners John Samme and Steve Yates.
On Saturday, we played a quad am on the PGA Course which we all found challenging but a great experience. The rain came but in no way did it spoil the game. Congratulations to the winning team of Chris Wood, Martin Wild, Steve Farmington and Garry Yates.
In the evening, after a formal dinner, we were entertained by the hilarious comedian, Garry Marshall. His jokes and stories had everyone in fits of laughter and it was well worth being there to watch John Samme crying with laughter for at least 3o minutes and constantly slapping Chris Hall’s bad shoulder!
Thankfully on Sunday the rain disappeared and everyone was back on the Derby Course playing a Texas Scramble. Yet again, the winners returned to the clubhouse with an incredible score. Well done to Kev Bennett, Ian Wyatt, Jake Bagshaw and David Ryan.
