Christmas Dinner

At the Engine

 I have booked us in for Wednesday 20th.
The menu is as follows :-
Starters :    Potato & Leek soup with crusty roll
                 Prawn cocktail
                 Farmhouse pate with chutney & toast
 
Main :        Roast Turkey
                 Chunky pork steak
                 Poached salmon with Hollandaise sauce
                 Vegetarian Pie (roast vegetables)
                 usual selection of vegetables including roast potatoes
 
Puds :        Christmas pud. with brandy sauce
                 Chocolate Brownie with toffee sauce
                 Lemon torte with raspberry coulis
                 Medley of ice creams
                 Cheeseboard with biscuits (£1 supplement)
 
                 Coffee & mints 
 
Cost - £13.95 plus gratuity of (say) £1.05 -  making £15 in total (or £16 for cheeseboard fans).
 
If I make it tomorrow I'll bring along a few copies of the menu. The doubt about my appearing is because of my car & the golf trolley.
My wife has to go out during the morning so I'll probably have to stay at home in case anybody calls or phones
Perhaps you could arrange to get the above info onto the website - or it may be easier to scan a menu on to the page, in which case I'll get one to you a.s.a.p.
Regards,
Ted

INTERIM REPORT ON TODAYS PLAY.Ted Lewis 12  13  25

 

When I have the full scores I will add them

6 players

Ted, Kevin, Mick

 Derek , Edwin, Len

Kevin won with 34 points, just managing to score one measly point more than Derek ‘s 33.

WELL PLAYER KEV!!

 With only 6 players it was winner takes it all.  

-----

Edwin and Derek spotted a bird by the river,  at first thoughts we thought

 it was a Heron. Derek tried to photograph it but failed. (It would have been a good picture to put on the new  Photo page.)

On reflection I think it was a bit small and too white . So I will stick out my neck  and say I “think it was an Egret”.  Much less common !

 Keep your eyes open next time we play. -Derek

As you can see if you look down the page there is a new tendency mainly by me!

 To add things during the week , not just on match days  please have a look bellow.

I am  working at present with Jim (Sadly still  on the unfit list) to make the pictures page a bit more than a list of pictures of the Christmas bash.

Over the next few days it will change. Please take your mobile phone on to the course with you , so you can send me a picture of what has been going on.

Things like the look on the face of the player who just got a birdie.  Or the wild life around the course. It’s a chance for you to use your imagination.      

------------------------------

I have just down loaded two pictures  onto the photo gallery click on the one you see to see the other one. then click again to enlarge them.

they are  just pictures I took on my phone.

now it's your turn  Have fun!   send me your work! - Derek

16th Oct.  (ref 13th)

 Mike was probably too non-bragging to mention it but for his birdie on the 2nd hole he hit in from 50 yards!!!!!!!!.

It deserves a mention on the website!!!!!!!! Foe Edwin's birdie on the 15th his drive landed 18 inches from the hole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the other hand it was Ted and me who scored 18 on the back nine. I was quite proud of that as I only scored 8 on the front. After 5 holes I had 2 points.  -Wilf

15th Oct

Part of a letter sent to Edwin by Bernard Andrews

I ventured onto the par 3 course yesterday encouraged by the use of a buggy made available to me as a birthday present from one of our daughters.

 Much to my relief, I didn't have any repercussions and enjoyed being back on the course.

Hope to be able to see you soon.  I was late arriving at the course but did see Dick and Ted as they were leaving.

 

Best wishes

Bernard

------------------------------

Winter is now well and truly here. 

Placing on fairways, leaves on the fairways, coats hats and thermal underwear.

The greens are different too, it is less of a problem to stop the ball on them.   

The more height you get on the ball the better your chance of stopping it.

The more back spin you get on the ball the more it will grip on the green.

When you are pitching on to the green, why not try coming down a club and hitting it a bit harder.

(I can’t take any credit for originality for that one)

We have a sort of responsibility because we go out first. We get the greens in the best condition they will be in all day.

 Apart from not treading on your playing partners’ line and mending pitch marks,

remembering to check the line if you pick your ball out of the hole before your partner putts 

think about not wandering about the green too much, the slightest things will add up through the day,

like spike marks, even footprints in the dew can make a difference.

 Remember you could be the one going out last next time!

– Derek, but mostly,  Peter Dobereiner,

No matter what you think, I did not stay in bed today because it is Friday the 13th.

I spent yesterday power washing my drive ( 5 hours!) when I finished my left leg felt a bit doggy.

I decided I would not be a good idea to play today. Weather permitting I will be back on Tuesday  .   -Derek

11 Oct

I have been asked what has happened to Paul Mayman since he joined the Gujons .we last  played with him at the Four Nations.

He is on holiday at the moment in Croatia.   He said he will play with us again on a Friday soon,

He has the problem that is still playing on Saturdays until his seven day membership runs out.

He wants to play more often but he is struggling to fit it in.  - Derek

Up when the sun came out,the rough was quite long today

And with the leaves now starting to fall on to the fairways

Made it a bit difficult to find the balls at times.

That’s all for now cheerio Vic.

---------------------------------

An interesting thing happened to me today, No I am not talking about winning, though I found that interesting too!

I want home thinking my battery was playing up,it was not managing a full round.  I have not serviced my trolley for a while,  so I decided to do it.

The first think I noticed was the Jockey wheel on the front was sticking . The  bearings where shot. with new bearings, let’s see if it will do a full round on Friday.

(If you have a pro-rider trolley, I have 4 more sets of bearings in the Goujons spares kit. , don’t go buying them if you want some . )  _Derek

PLACING

With Placing upon us again,  it is probably time to go through the rules on placing yet again.

The First thing to understand is, Placing is not there to improve the position of your ball, (any improvement is a bonus.) It is there for you to remove mud from your ball.

 Let’s get the rough out of the way first.

You are not allowed to touch your ball with hand or club under any circumstances in the rough. That’s a one stroke penalty .

(That includes  identifying it. If you are not sure it is your ball,  check with the other players if they have their balls,

the chances are you have yours. Hit it ! if it turns out it was a lost ball from someone ells . you can go back and try again with no penalty. )   

On the fairway

You are not allowed to touch your ball without marking it first (One stroke penalty )

Pick it up, clean it, put it back within the width (Not length)  of your score card. And not nearer the hole .

It’s not rocket science, and I won’t have to listen to your playing partner complaining to me, because they don’t want  to make a fuss !!.

My advice to you is,  if you make a fuss, They may not understand to rules and be greatfull for the help.

or they will not try it again for at least some time!  if you don’t you only have yourself to blame when they annoy you the  next time you play with them.

Please ! Let’s have  a friendly and stress free winter!!  -Derek

29th Sept

Here are the scores from our group this morning for the first 4 holes before we packed it in:-

 

Terry H. 6

Derek P. 3

Mike F. 8

 

Cheers – see you next week

 

Mike

 

PS – Note for Kevin – I had a par 5  on the 4th – (3 points). As this was my best score on this hole this year does this count towards my eclectic ?!!

Mike.

 

Hi Derek,  You gave in too soon !  By the time we got to the 4th green it was very light rain so we decided to carry on and finish the front nine. 

The rain stopped by the time we got to the 7th Tee, the rain gear came off at the 8th Tee and so we carried on.  The jumpers came off at the 10th,

the clouds started breaking up to leave a lovely warm and pleasant back Nine.  The scores were not too good to start but improved along with the weather.

Unfortunately Vic slipped over on the 3rd  and was left a bit shaken and wet so he called it a day on the 4th and went in.

Scores:-  Alan 7 front, 13 back. Tom 12 F, 15 B, Kevin 9F, 16B.  As only 3 players finished there would be no changes to handicaps.

Kevin

27th Sept

 

Report on this year’s Four Nations day.

A good turnout of Goujons  today, most of us played for Wales . Kevin who only came in at the last moment. Had to play for Scotland !!

Some of our new members played for us for the first time. I hoped a bit of fresh talent would help the course . I can’t be right all the time ! 

We came last !  Reiner was unwell and had to pull out. So he doesn’t have to shear in the abject ignominy we suffered. John Williams went all the way to Australia. To avoid it!

 England won  . Mike Foster won the best player for Wales prize.  Kevin didn’t win the best player for Scotland prize.

We looked very smart, with all the team in matching Wales caps.  We have put them into storage for next year. We also had a secret weapon each player went out with a small pack of Bara Brith  (Welsh  cake) even that didn’t work .

I had to report the result it John in Australia . maybe some of the players think I should have gone with him.!   

Joking apart .  It was a good fun day really. I think we all had a good day? It’s always fun to play in it.

 I for one hope to be back next year.  (With John back as Captain!)  - Derek

Front and 1 point for winning the back bringing his

Handicap down from 37 to 32.We all had problems

With finding our balls in the long rough and the bright

Sun light did not help.All for now cheerio Vic.

 ---------------------------------------

Next Wednesday is the Four Nations day.    Seven of the Wales team and one of the Scottish team are Goujons. 

I am not playing on Tuesday so as to be fresh for the match.  I don’t know how many other Goujons will do the same , 

but it  could be a depleted field on Tuesday. If you are not playing Wednesday it could be a good chance to increase you Goujon points .

Start and quite foggy the fog did not lift untill about 10-30

When the sun tried to come out.Reiner only played the

Front went home after feeling unwell,Kevin joined in at

Operation in January. Thats all for now cheerio Vic.       

----------------------------------------------------------
 

Today Edwin came to help eat the chips.  It was great to see him walking cautiously, but without a limp.

It won’t be long before he is back with us and a lot fitter than before.

The question is can Kevin get a few wins and birdies in before he comes back.  _derek

Good to see Kevin back with us, we wish him well for his forthcoming op.

Wilf Feely and Tom Wilding shared the front

With 18 points Tom Wilding won the back with

21 points and overall with 39 points there were

No birdies today may have been due to the greens

Having a top dressing of sand on them making it a

Bit difficult to judge the speed of the ball to the

Hole.It was quite cold to start this morning but got

Warmer as the day went on.All for now cheerio -Vic.

----------------------------------

The members who realised that  the sand on the green took out the borrows on the green ,

are probably the players who did the best scoring today. 

Confession time,  on the Seventh tee I was trying to sort out how many strokes Reiner Received on the Sixth hole,

 that I put him off his shot . I was so bothered about this,

I didn’t realise until I was 30 yards down the fairway that,  I hadn’t hit my ball it was still in my hand!! - Derek

From things brought to my notice today from two different members it seems a reminder is required.

The rule is- Under NO circumstance is a player allowed to touch  there ball 

when it is in play. (after driving it, until it goes in the hole) this is a penalty .

On the green you must mark your ball before touching it under all circumstances . 

it  includes identifying it  and taking it out of a hole or divot. If you think it is unpliable take a drop two club lengths not nearer the hole,

at a cost of one stroke.  You don’t really need me to tell you this . please try not to spoil the game of your playing partner with bad behaver .

Quote

Peter Dobereiner at the beginning of his book  said  “ you can’t choose which rules you play to and those you ignore “

6th sept

 Eight people turned up yesterday to play but only four played. 

The drizzle started dead on eight-o-clock, the for cast said it would it would only be light for a short while.

  Len, Tom and I went out expecting the others to follow shortly afterwards. 

As we were teeing off John came and joined us and said that the other four, Alan,

Don, Vic and Dick have changed their minds and gone home.

  It drizzled till the third hole, then it came down heavy for 5 minutes so we sheltered under the trees on the forth tee while it passed over,

by the time we finished the forth hole the rain had stopped, the sky was brightening up and so we carried on to the end without any rain.

  I won the front with 19 followed by Len 18, John 13 and Tom 9. 

John won the back 9 with 22, Tom 18, me 14 and Len 12, giving John the overall winning score of 35.  There were no birdies. - Kevin

 

 

 

5th Sept.

Rain stopped most members turning up, or if they turned up they did not go out,

Tom, Kev, John and Len decided to give it a go, the rest went home.   

I have no info as to the outcome if this brave act. If you completed the round please let me know. 

---------------------------

If you didn’t already know, you will be surprised to know I managed to fight off all the contenders for the job of captain of the Welsh team this year.

  I have not been to the club lately , I am informed I have the support of quite a few members.

If you have not signed up yet please join the welsh teem!! If you think of yourself as English. 

 And you think your ancestors were here before the Angles, Saxons and Jutes,. emigrated to live in England.

You could be more related to us than you think!

Yes I am that desperate !  please sign up. - Derek

Today a volunteer was asked for, to captain the Welsh teem in the four nations competition on the 27th of September.

 I was half asleep and was the last to get to the door!

I will be calling in all the favours people owe me and doing a bit of coaxing with my baseball bat, to get up a team.

Please!  put your name down  on the list in the changing room when it is put up.

Actually it is quite good fun.    -Derek

I reported something I overheard on the car park last week,

about a lack of  Recycling of the rubbish at the course.

 I can now inform you that it is not the case the rubbish is recycled.

That will teach me not to listen in to other people’s conversations!

John Williams said he landed on the green on the 15th and still managed not to score a single point.

I myself struggled with the humidity I went home with a headache. 

Copy of email to me from Edwin

 

Derek
My follow-up today was pleasing.
New, smaller dressing; reduced medication; stitches out next Tuesday.
All I have to do now is abide by the expectation of the imposed exercise regime!
He also said that driving again could be from 3 to 6 weeks, so I shall be working for the earlier one.
P might be back sooner than I feared!
Edwin

Tom Wilding and John Williams. Dick Turpin won the back with

18 points and Tom Wilding won overall with 32 points no one

Managed to get a birdie.I have given Jim Saxton a point on his

Handicap due to him being unable to play re his back problem,

Dick Turpin gets a point deduction for winning the back nine.

That’s about all for now cheerio Vic.

Something I overheard  yesterday. My interest anyone who trys to look after the environment.

It may not be true but this is what I heard.  All the rubbish from the club goes into land fill.

So don’t put your plastic bottles and such like in the bins, take them home. So you can recycle  them. Derek

The rough down replaced his ball then played his shot.

John did apologies in the clubhouse.

All for now cheerio Vic.

P.S Edwin had a birdie on the 2nd on Tuesday.               

 

 

10th Aug

Three people did play Tuesday.  Kevin, Edwin, John Williams,

They are proud of the time taken to get hound 3hours thirty minutes.

I would think it would be quicker! They had the course to themselves and it looked like it was going to P*** down  any minute .

I would have done it in three hours! But that is hypothetical.  No way would I have made it a four ball.   Well done lads! :-)  or maybe it should be :-0 .  

 

8th August

 
I have no scores for today .
I take it no one was daft enough to play in that wether.
