Please note that the start sheet closes at 12 noon on Thursday 24th August, not 17th August as stated on the website.

Due to this prestigious competition being held at AEGC Council have taken the rare decision to close the course all day on Wednesday 29th August, so that our Greenkeepers can have maximum preparation time for this event. The course will re-open following the conclusion of the County Championship. We do hope you appreciate the reasons for this.

If you are not intending to compete you are welcome to come up to AEGC on the morning of 31st August to support the competitors with the first tee time at 11.00am.

We are all looking forward to an excellent day.

Captain's Evening Photos

The Captain would like to thank everyone who came on Captain's Evening for making it such a great night.  Also special thanks to Chris and his team for the canapes, to Jon Grundy & Steve for the cocktails and Phil Wood for the disco, they were all amazing.  I hope you enjoy the photographs, certain ones had to be censored...

Which Club does Tony select to get him out of this predicament?

Chris Hoyland, Tony Adderley, Mr. President and Trevor Rathbone enjoyed an excellent day of golf and hospitality at Vale Royal.  The occasion was another meeting of the North West Golf Steward's Association.  Mr President and Trevor only just missed out on the prizes coming 4th on a count back with Chris and Tony playing via the trees to a lower placing. 

East Cheshire Hospice

On Saturday 8th, Alastair Kennedy, one of the Trustees of the East Cheshire Hospice attended presentation.  The Captain presented him with a cheque for £3,340 from the Charity Golf Day in June.  Alastair spoke about the new service the Hospice is planning to launch to enable patients to receive treatment in their own homes, as an additional option to staying within the Hospice itself.  The funds will go towards the launch of the new service.  He thanked the Club for their support.

The charity day was excellently organised by Brian Foden, who has raised over £80,000 for various charities over the years, and is rapidly closing in on the £100,000. 

The Captain also presented an additional cheque for £125 which was raised from the Hospital Trophy in May.

Many thanks to all those who entered the charity day and donated prizes to help raise this excellent total.
