Well done to all members who took part in the Silverstone Masters Competition over the weekend of 16th and 17th May. The weather was great and some great golf was on show as well. Thank you to Brian for sorting out the results. The result sheets are now in the clubhouse for all participants to view and reflect upon.
Congratulations to Dan for winning the competition (Will his name fit on the board?) His handicap has now been cut to 16.....that means that he has been cut by 10 in the last 3 weeks. Well done Dan, a great achievement with a hole in one for good measure as well in that short period in time!

**Please note that the Winter Rules has been extended to 14th May to allow the fairways more time to recover after the very wet Winter we have just had. **

A reminder regarding the ruling about the areas where soil has sunk in drainage channels around the course.             

There is no relief from these areas and the ball has to be played as it lies.

Note of another competition -  Silverstone Mens Open Four Ball Team Event on Thursday 12th June being run by the Pro-Shop. Please sign up on the board and see Rodney or Mark for details.

*A request from Rodney to all members,*

Throughout the winter we did our utmost to keep the driving range open. Unfortunately as a result of this we now have many balls plugged in the ground. Next Wednesday (21st May) we will be asking members to come up and help us get as many balls out of the ground/hedges as possible. If you are able to help please let the Proshop know.

Thank you in advance.

Waltzing the Silverstone Way competition went very well on Bank Holiday. There were over 50 entrants this year who all agreed that the format is very good and allows members to play in a fun and competitive way. Thank you to Julie Edwards for organising the competition, sorting out the prizes and collating the results at the end. A fun mixed competition that had members from all sections taking part.

Well done to Dan Claydon-Drabble who scored a hole in one on the 16th hole which was a great achievement.

April

Wednesday 30th May - 9 hole Roll Up - 

This week the Roll Up was on the back 9 which many were looking forward to the change. In the past few weeks the Roll Up has been dominated by the men but not this week; the ladies got their revenge. There was also a few incidents that need to be noted. Will not wanting Dave to win 2 weeks on the trot, tried to take Dave's clubs out using the buggy. As Dave said "Its a bit difficult to produce the high standard if your clubs are bent!" A little bit of an exageration but did give the group something to laugh about! Anyone who wants to be in with a chance, go out with Natalie who has been in the winning group over the last couple of weeks. Winner - Natalie Toms 26pts, 2nd - Paula Batchelor 20 pts, 3rd - Charmaine Locke 18pts (on count back) 4th Nige(ella) James 18pts. Thank you all members for turning up to the roll up and making these evenings great fun and successful and a big thank you to Rodney for organising these evenings again. 28 members this week.

St Georges Day 9 hole Roll Up Wednesday 23rd April

Despite the wet weather there were still 20 members at the St Georges Day Wednesday 9 hole roll up. Thank you to all the members who joined in the competition; it is great to see members supporting this event and hopefully the weather will improve as we get closer to summer. The Dragon hole was the 8th hole. Well done to Dave who won the competition, scoring 27 points in the windy and wet conditions.
