Fosters Trophy – Saturday 10th September


As part of our agreement with Heineken, the clubs within our buying group take it in turns to host the Fosters Trophy.  This years event is at South Pembs, with tee times between 0900 and 1400.  There is no cost to enter but please sign up on the sheet in the foyer.


Mixed Open – Saturday 17th September.


Almost a sellout – there is space for just 7 more couples, and a reminder the course is closed until early afternoon.




Many thanks to all those who helped make this a successful event, including the chefs, the helpers, the cooks and most of all, those that came and paid their money!


Welsh Team Championship


A very good showing, with the team winning their first two matches and then losing in a very close match.  Well done everybody, a great performance.


DGU Super Six


The Super 6 finals day is to be held at Carmarthen Golf Club on Sunday 4th September 2016.  Teams are Milford Haven, Machynys, Ashburnham and of course, CARDIGAN.


Course News


Autumn maintenance will start later this month.  Make sure you read the notice board by the Pro Shop, there will some hole closures whilst the work is carried out – this is the quickest way to complete the work and get the greens back in play.  Please remember to give the greens staff priority during this very busy period for them.


Seniors – Geoff Snape


Matches through August with 2 wins & 2 defeats. We continue to have good support from the Senior Section for both matches on a Thursday and the roll ups on Tuesdays. The Senior’s Captain had his second away day on 31st August, originally planned for 22nd but the weather put paid to that date. Clyne was the venue and 16 members had a thoroughly enjoyable day, the course was very good with excellent greens and extremely wide fairways, a course we would all certainly visit again. Keith Phillips won with a superb 39 points followed by Ken Snelgrove & Dick Perry both on 36 points. The team prize went to Keith Phillips, Dick Perry, Trevor Boyce & Tony Simpkin.


We go into the final month of matches away to Newport (8th) & then home to Milford (15th). The next Captain’s way Day is to Aberdovey on 6th October, the notice is on the Seniors Noticeboard.


Ken Snelgrove & Peter Ward contest the Seniors Final, best of luck to them both.

Ready Golf – one to try out next time you play – suggested by the R & A


Allowing players to play when they are ready to do so, rather than adhering strictly to the “farthest from the hole plays first” stipulation should be encouraged, except during match play games. Examples of ready golf include playing when someone in your group is assessing a tricky shot, shorter hitters playing first if longer hitters have to wait and hitting a shot before helping someone to look for a lost ball.


Being ready to play should be very easy and considerable time will be saved if players do these things efficiently. For example, if each player in a four-ball that shoots 80 each takes an average of five seconds less to play each shot they will save over 26 minutes (80 shots x five seconds x four players).


Starting on the 15th Tee


Yet another reminder, players may only start on the 15th tee (and the 5th for that matter) if they are not interfering with players coming down the 14th (4th).  This applies to EVERYBODY, including club matches eg Seniors, Tigers, Ladies, Rabbits as well as Swindles, etc.
