The up-coming Annual General Meeting 

The Annual General Meeting is scheduled to be held on 24 November at 7.00pm in the Spike Bar.  Think about putting the date and time into your diaries and coming to the meeting.  It is the meeting at which the Committee gives a fulsome report to members on the year’s activities and the financial position of the Club. The formal Notice of Meeting can be found at this link – Notice of meeting GLGC.

Nomination for the Golf Club Committee

For those interested, each year we elect a ‘new Committee’ which is announced at the AGM.  Nominations open on Monday 26 October and will close on Monday 9 November.  For a nomination to be accepted you must complete the form here – Committee Nominations form 2020-21 and this must be returned to the Golf Manager at by 5.00pm on the closing date (9 November).

If voting is required (more nominations than available positions), we will open the voting on Wednesday 11 November.  Voting will be undertaken electronically by members logging onto the system, as was the process last year.  The CFO Ainslie Group, Stephen Gallacher, is the Returning Officer.  Voting will close at 5.00pm 20 November.  If the number of nominations equals the available positions, there is no requirement for a vote.

The Course

With the completion of the Championships, you will have noticed a huge amount work being done on the Course.  Greens are in the process of being renovated (cored and sanded) with the cores being distributed around the course in areas of need.  Remember, while playing if you land on cores, you should take a drop, away from the area in which cores have been distributed and no closer to the hole.  These areas have had seed added and raked in.  Our thanks to all of the members who turned out to help with the Greens renovations and in particular Ken Wark who managed the work and organised the volunteers.  Our thanks also to Shan and his team for their tireless work in doing all of the early renovations work.  Great job for all of those involved.

Presentation Event

Our presentation day event is scheduled for Saturday 21 November.  The event is normally a shotgun start commencing at 8.30am and concluding with a luncheon at which we present all of the trophies for the various Honour Board events for the year.  We are hoping that the event will proceed as normal this year but, we will provide further advice closer to the date.  Because of the Shotgun start, the field is limited to around 128 players and so I encourage you to book in early when the timesheet is opened.  Lunch will be served in the Spike Bar area and presentations will take place soon after lunch has been served.  Plan to be at the club until around 2.00pm.

Good golfing now the warmer whether is with us.
