Hi everyone,

Time for another blog from the Captain. I can't believe that over half of my year is already over, it really has gone quick but my golf has yet to hit new heights. There is still time though.

What a summer we are having - lovely warm days and sultry evenings and golf balls running further than ever (apart from mine!). I hope you are all enjoying it, and big thanks to Tony and his team for keeping the course in such great shape in these tricky conditions.

Since I last wrote, I have played more golf than ever before - both with the 2018 Captains and the Past Captains of S&A. What a great pleasure it has been having days out with the past Captains, thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable so thanks gentlemen. I have also played in Club matches at Fairhaven and Ilkley and had Hillside visit us. Once again, great days.

On 14th July I held my Charity Day. Big thanks to everyone who helped from Barry the Starter to the professionals including Phil the GM and the Lady Captain and the lady members who helped make the day run so smoothly. In the evening we had a barbecue, raffle and an auction - another good social evening. I really appreciated all the help from all the staff, members who supplied prizes, and those who throughout the day donated money and time. Special thanks to Kevin Davis and Anna for helping with the auction, it was great fun.

I really felt touched at the end of the evening when the large sum was totalled. An amazing figure was raised so many thanks to each and every one of you who helped and contributed.

Last week I attended The Open and had an awesome experience staying for two nights in a caravan and watching James Robinson play. It was a pity he didn't make the cut, but a wonderful time was had by the other members of S&A and myself.

Enough from me, but once again enormous thanks and gratitude for all the support and help everyone has given me so far.

Thanks,

Captain
