Saturdays at 09.00am - for 18 holes
Lady Captain - Christine Henderson  

 

I hope you and your families and friends are all keeping well in these difficult times that affect us all.  Let us hope that we can return to our normal lifestyle in the not too distant future.

 

In the meantime, you will no doubt have seen the messages from Neil Burke regarding Horne Park and he will no doubt continue to do so in the weeks ahead.   The clubhouse and golf course, including the range, are now closed.  There is also guidance on the England Golf website to all clubs regarding Covid-19 which is worth a read.  The link is here: https://www.englandgolf.org/clubs-golfers-covid-19/

 

With the summer qualifiers due to start in April, the Ladies Committee has agreed to suspend all our club competitions until further notice.  I think we all agree that this is a sensible approach in the current situation.  The Committee will keep up to date with England Golf guidance and update you on any changes.  Keep safe and sane, from CHRISTINE HENDERSON

The winter Eclectic since November 2019 was not given a chance to finish by the end of March 2020 but the Competition Committee will advise us all on what will happen to this. 

WHEN WE FINALLY GET TO PLAY GOLF AGAIN - see the usual notes below:

Keep looking on our noticeboard for sign up sheets and check the main noticeboard inside the front door for mixed and club competitions.  

SUMMER SINGLES & DOUBLES - doubles format is 4BBB in the summer.  Sign up on the sheets on the noticeboard outside the Ladies cloakroom - 4 each.

 If anyone needs a green Team shirt, please let us know as we have a few available.  They are in the Pro-Shop at 15. Also there are a couple of purple jumpers in stock.

WINNERS! - if you win a Ladies' qualifying competition or Sunday Comp, or even Chip In, during the summer months you are entitled to enter THE CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS and win a cup.  This year it should be on Sunday 20th September. Well done to SUE HUNT who was the 2018 Ladies Champion of Champions!!

The SUMMER Eclectic 2020 will be taken from all the qualifying games played in the summer where the scores are entered into the computer -  showing your best score on each of the 18 holes.  Make sure you play and score on ALL 18 holes over the course of the season.  The Order of Merit (OOM) is taken from your position on the leaderboard at each qualifier you enter, from 1st down to 8th and your best 10 positions over the summer are used. All the more reason to come and do the qualifiers!

For all new Winter members please see our Welcome Letter and notes on competitions we hold over the year.  There is also a sign up sheet on the noticeboard where you can put your name and contact details asking any of the ladies to play a round of golf with you. Unless you joined Horne with a handicap already, from April you can submit 3 x 18 hole cards (or a mixture of 9 and 18 = 54) to get your handicap.  Please ask any of the ladies to give you more details.

TUESDAYS - this is a fun 9-hole game for all the ladies, including non-members (you just have to pay a green fee).  Tuesdays are a great way for new members to meet the ladies. Our Vice-Captain Rosie Christie arranges the Tuesday games although she may well ask one or two others to help. 

THURSDAYS & SATURDAYS - Please put your names on the sheets which are on the noticeboard in the ladies' changing rooms.  If you find you are not able to be there after all or you want to be added to the list, please phone the Pro Shop (01342 844443) before the sign-in time. 

ON-LINE TEE BOOKING: Horne Park uses an on-line system of booking tee times.  Tuesday afternoons and Thursday morning tee times should be automatically on the booking system, but any other tee times should be booked using the on-line system.  Ask in the Pro Shop for your 'membership number' - this will be your 'login'.  Go to the main Horne Park website and create a PIN - You will be asked for your membership number and your date of birth.  Create your PIN which is 4 numerals.  Then when you login using your membership number and your PIN number you will get the option to book any date within 3 weeks.

If you have any questions or ideas for the website please get in touch with any of the committee.
