LADIES GET INTO GOLF SESSIONS
The IOM Golf Union’s ‘Red Tee Tour’ is coming to Rowany on Wednesday 20th March. Our version of this initiative is to hold a Texas Scramble over 7 holes, partnering lady newcomers to golf with our members. We will draw for partners and anticipate people arriving at about 9.30 for a 10am start.
The Sunday morning sessions continue, with John Tinsley offering coaching. All are very welcome to come and join in the fun. We meet at 10.30 – and trust that one of these Sundays we’ll have nice weather!
During these wet conditions, can buggy users please keep to the rough as far as possible. In particular, please keep to the right-hand-side on the 11th, and take the bottom path round to 14th green.
David Kneen, Chairman Greens Committee
Due to the rather wet conditions the March Medal will be NON-QUALIFYING for handicap purposes and will be played off the YELLOW tees.
Following a request, the Competition & Handicap Committee has decided to run a Texas Scramble on Saturday 30th March to honour Bryn Jones 80th Birthday. The format will be mixed stroke-play teams of 4 with a shotgun start at 10am. Bryn will be providing the prizes, and also a Bacon Bap in the club house prior to the start of the competition. Full details have been posted around the club house and sign-up sheets placed on the Gents Locker Room Notice Board. An alternative date will be sought for the Eric Quayle Memorial Charity Stableford.
The Club Nights start on Wednesday 27th March.
Week 1 Cross Country
Week 2 Par 3 challenge
Tee reserved from 4pm to 6pm.
Come along and join in – sign up on the night.
