Captain's February newsletter

This month’s newsletter is hard to write as there not much to write about. Firstly, Jenny and I would like to thank everyone for attending the Captains Drive In on the 7th January, I must admit it was very cold so well done for being there, I will take this moment on behalf of the gent’s section to thank the ladies for a great spread of food which they provided for the us on the day.

The weather let us finish the Winter Series this year on the 14th of January and the results are as follows division 1- 1st C Lightfoot. 2nd D Stonehouse.3rd N Stanwix. In division 2 - 1st E Lightfoot. 2nd M Wicks. 3rd I Matthews, well done to all for completing this competition, so well done to the winners.

Mid - January the weather took a turn for the worse with rain then snow which closed the course which is rare event these days, hopefully the weather is going to pick so we can play on our great course again.

Next Captains quiz is Friday 23rd February.You can also order food before the quiz.

Look on the social diary of the website for various events throughout the year to have fun and support the club.

There have been a couple of past members who have recently passed away so I would like on behalf of all the Club members giving our condolences to all the families on these sad times.

That’s about all this month keep on swinging.




We have an exciting oppurtunity for Hole Sponsorship at the club. Please see note below from Chris Lamb.

"This is to give you, as members, particularly those who are business owners, first priority on sponsorship of the holes at Richmond Golf Club.

At the beginning of 2018, RGC is looking to reallocate and revive the sponsorship for all 18 holes at the course. This will consist of a new larger sponsorship notice on each hole (ca 40 x 30cm) as well as an overall sponsorship board in a prominent and visible position near the entrance to the clubhouse which will stylishly list all “hole” sponsors.

We will be offering these sponsorship opportunities for only £100 p.a and believe this is great value.

We estimate this will attract visibility from well over 2000 individuals as well as sustained repeat exposures from our ca 350 members up to ca 14000 exposures in total.

For comparison, taking a half page advert in the yellow pages can cost ca £5000 and whilst quite targeted once a need arises, has relatively limited repeat exposure. Equally a local newspaper advert can cost ca £200 per week (£10000 pa) and for a paper like the Yorkshire Post hits are based upon circulation of ca 29K falling annually at a rate ca 10% pa.

If you are interested in taking up this sponsorship offer please contact the Office.

We will allow until October 15th for members to have first priority for “hole sponsorship” after which we will offer any remaining holes to our suppliers and following that, to other local businesses.
