  • CAR PARK: LACK OF MAINTENANCE

    In this month’s Fore Info there is a report about a major incident regarding flooding from the drains recently which the Chairman said was unconnected with the Clubhouse refurbishment. He did not state what had caused it or whether it was foul water or surface water drainage which overflowed. As a result of this report,…

  • The Chair of the Management Committee

    Having visited the re-vamped Club website, which I think is a great improvement, I noted that the most recent ManCom minutes were those in draft for a meeting on 5th January. I emailed the Chair as he had previously told me that the earlier problem of a similar nature had been fixed. Regrettably his initial…

  • Bunkers – Poor Standard

    Can I please ask why the bunkers continue to be of an extremely poor standard? Fairway bunker on 5 has more sand in it than is required yet majority of the bunkers on the course have little sand in them. The club continues to bounce off what must be the liner and there is just…

  • BAR & CATERING

    Can the Management Committee kindly explain why the most recent set of Minutes for the Bar and Catering Sub-committee on the website are for a meeting which took place on 25 September 2019, i.e. more than two years ago? Furthermore, why was there no consultation with Members before the decision was taken to close the…

  • UNANSWERED QUESTION AT AGM

    I submitted a question in advance about the Club accounts prior to the 2021 AGM. The Chairman said he would answer it but did not do so. I asked how much has been included in the 2021/22 budget for professional fees relating to the Clubhouse Redevelopment project? The Chairman said these fees would be “capitalised”…

  • DAILY COURSE CONDITIONS RECORDING

    Option 1 on the Club’s phone system is the daily course conditions. This morning I called it to ascertain if there is a trolley ban but was disappointed to hear the message said the course was closed due to snow – but it was recorded on Monday 29th November. If a different message cannot be…

  • Drinking water facility in Clubhouse

    Subject:Drinking water facility in Clubhouse Message:Could MANCOM please consider installing a drinking water facility in the clubhouse. On a number of recent occasions I have found it very difficult to get a drink of water. The bar staff can supply one if they are open and last week when I was taken ill a member…

  • Weekend Comps

    Subject:Weekend Comps Message:Just a thought but is there anyway we can have either more medals / stapleford comps on the weekends. Just feel it could help with a bit more money back in the pro shop. I feel it can also help level handicaps out etc.

  • Speeding up play

    Subject:Speeding up play Message:If we had occasional colour markers on selected trees around the course, could it help speed up play by reducing ball search time? Similarly, colours attached to sticks in areas of rough may reduce ball finding time??

  • Receipt of “In Memory” Gifts

    Subject:Receipt of “In Memory” Gifts Message:I think this is for MANCOM. I understand that as a general rule we don’t like to accept gifts that require a brass plaque/carving to name somebody. I quite agree with that personally. However should MANCOM be explaining to the membership that gifts that are more “unrestricted” would be welcome.…

  • Recycling

    Subject:Recycling Message:I think the club should do more recycling. Especially paper generated from all the results sheets and postings.
