Dress Code

Monday 1st June 2020

As we are having a nice spell of weather, the normal yearly issues occur with dress code. To save any confrontations in the pro shop or first tee i'm asking you to conform to the following dress code. 1. Golf Shirts must have a collar 2. Golf Shirts must be tucked into the pant/short at all times. 3. Gents shorts must be tailored and not have extra pockets sown on i.e No cargo shorts. 4. Golf shoes must be warn. 5. No tracksuit/jogger bottoms Golfers who don't adhere to the dress code will not be allowed to tee off.

A&LGC Seniors' Section Texas Scramble and Christmas Dinner

The Seniors' Ssection had a superb turnout for the annual Texas scramble and Xmas dinner on Monday 10th, December

With 51 participants in the scramble competition, the weather was kind and a competitive atmosphere ensued.

The winning trio squeezed through were Keith Hume , Rick Harwood and Mike Cushing.

As is traditional, our guests President Mick Wilson, Captain Mark Baron, Dan Clark and Graham Swarbrick were invited to join the throng for dinner.

Our new chef, Tom Carter, served up an excellent traditional Xmas dinner, which was enjoyed by all.

A departure from the norm was the absence of our Evertonian “speaker” who loves to share anecdotes with the gathering. However,  all was not lost as amongst our Seniors' Committee, we have our very own Jimmy Cricket and Frank Carson - more commonly known as Alan and Pat - who entertained us all with their stories.  

Pat's "observations" of our members was a breath of fresh air and everyone applauded loudly.  Well done to both - is this the future of seniors' entertainment?

The proceedings closed at 6.30pm, although many were still seen in and around the club long after.  We can only assume these people were autograph hunters for Jimmy and Frank (aka: Alan and Pat)!

Happy Christmas, everyone
