Granby and Sutton golf society was formed in November 2011 and held its inaugral meeting in the Marquis of Granby. It is a local club for people with an interest in playing golf. It was decided that we would play at least six times a year at various courses in the area. Over the past year we have played at the Nottinghamshire (Cotgrave), Belton Park, Melton Mowbray, Newark, Stoke Rochford, Ruddington, Oakmere and Rufford Park.
New members are always welcome contact Amanda Grattan below:
Officers are as follows:
Captain: Martyn Wakeman
Secretary: Amanda Grattan email@example.com
Treasurer: Lesley Lewis
Our AGM was held at the Marquis on Wednesday 14th November 2012.
The following attended – Martyn Wakeman, Amanda Grattan, Lesley Galbraith, David Nock, Andy Betts & David Lewis. Apologies received from: Ken Kirk, Stan and Shirley Taylor
The following was agreed:
The current committee members will stay on for another year – Martyn Wakeman – Chairman, Amanda Grattan – Secretary & Lesley Galbraith – Treasurer
For future fixtures we will utilise the clubs that members already play at - The Nottinghamshire, Newark, Melton Mowbray, Belton Park, Belton Woods & Rushcliffe. The idea would be that throughout the spring and summer months members would organise a game at their own clubs and invite other Granby & Sutton members as guests. We plan to try and organise one fixture per month. The society are also looking at organising days out to courses further afield that the club would like to play at.
Preferred days of play was discussed and Fridays have always attracted the most players so we will look at organising future fixtures on Fridays.
Annual Report to Annual Parish Meeting May 2013. Amanda Gratton
The golf society continues to organise fixtures every month and we have played the following courses over the last year – Stoke Rochford, Belton Park, Oakmere, Norwood Park & Ruddington on special deals for societies.
This year members have been organising fixtures at their own clubs and we have played Melton Mowbray with fixtures also planned for The Nottinghamshire, Rushcliffe & Belton Woods.
We have a match planned against Orston Golf Society being played at Belton Park in June for the Vale Cup and hopefully another match against Colston Bassett Golf Society. If anybody is interested in joining the society please do not hesitate to contact me.
