Message from the Captain.

Dear members

First of all may I wish you all a better and hopefully a safe New Year. The usual accompaniment of “happy” somehow does not seem appropriate in these troubled times.

The new lockdown measures announced yesterday came as no surprise to us given the gravity of the situation and I know we all have to do our part to help the nationwide effort to drive down the rate of infection. I am sure you share with me the disappointment that along with other outdoor activities golf can no longer be played during this lockdown period. We made a good case last time showing how golf could be played safely but unfortunately we have come under the requirement that exercise for “leisure and recreation” is not allowed. Scotland has not seen it this way and they are still playing albeit in two balls. Perhaps England Golf will continue to lobby the government on our behalf.

So where does that leave us? The weather at the moment is ironically helping in that only the most hardy would want to venture out at present and the course condition has hardly been an encouragement, despite Colin and his staff’s hard work. I for one am fixing my sights firmly on the coming golf season in the expectation of better times ahead. We managed last year to save as much of the competitive season as we could and all of us were delighted with our brilliant course condition, by far the best in the area.

There are better times ahead for North Cliff and although these next few months will be difficult, we must remain positive. I want to thank you all for your continuing support and loyalty to the club and look forward to completing my Captain’s year in the best possible way, enjoying what this great club can offer both on and off the course.

Please take care.

Hello to you all. We are approaching the end of another golfing season and I hope that you have all enjoyed it despite the strange circumstances surrounding it.

One of the difficulties facing us is that we are unable to have social functions in the clubhouse so have been unable to present prizes to the winners of President’s Weekend from the end of July. Unfortunately this doesn’t look like changing soon so we have reluctantly had to change our plans.

We have attached a list of the prize winners and vouchers will be available in the Professional’s Shop for anybody lucky enough to be on the list. I am very sorry the prizes need to be distributed this way but hopefully the circumstances making this necessary will improve soon meaning we can get back to a more normal way of life.

Warmest congratulations to all the prize winners and especially to Peter, Debbie and Jack for winning the putters in the Men’s, Ladies and Junior sections.

Thank you to everyone who competed which helped make the weekend so successful.

Finally a big thank you to all members for their support and patience during these past few months. We have all encountered challenges none of us could have predicted at the start of the year but by pulling together we have managed to achieve so much for our club.

Keep well and thank you.



Please note that with immediate effect Face coverings are required in all areas of the Clubhouse/Locker rooms, except for the purpose of eating/drinking (unless you are exempt in accordance with the government guidance).

It is essential that you provide staff with your name and contact number when asked for contact tracing purposes, as this is now a legal requirement.

With effect from Monday 14th September groups of up to 6 people are permitted to meet indoors or outdoors, but social distancing must be maintained at all times. This is legally enforceable, so please ensure that you do not exceed this restriction in the Clubhouse and surrounding areas, including the putting green and around the first tee.

Locker rooms should only be used for access to the toilets and for storage of Clubs in personal lockers. You should still arrive dressed ready for golf and change shoes etc. in the Car park.

We would ask that you adhere to these changes in the restrictions, as they are there to protect everyone, including yourself.

Message from the Captain.

My thanks to Pete Kirby and Jill for their help with the barbeque on Sunday which was a great success and my further thanks to the ladies section who supported me through the day – Pam, Eleanor and Ann. Also to members wives Fran and Chris. I am delighted to announce that donations to the Captain’s / Lady Captain’s charity “Blood Cancer UK” made over £460 through members generosity on the Sunday. A fantastic result.

Competition winners will be announced later this week and the prize presentation will be held at a later date. Finally on the weekend, my apologies to members for the somewhat challenging pin position on the 7th. There were 4 twos there which proved it was not impossible, but from our vantage point behind the green it was interesting to watch the varying attempts to play the hole and observe member’s reactions!

Congratulations go to the Rabbits Section for their victory in the Flamborough and District Alliance meeting at the club last Wednesday. They retained the Golden Jubilee Cup and my best wishes go to Colin Spink and his team.

Presidents Weekend

What a fantastic President’s weekend. Many thanks to the 230 or so competitors who played in the various competitions and congratulations to all the prize winners.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID 19 restrictions we are unable to have a prize giving evening at the moment but we hope to be able to sort something out later in the year.

Please keep supporting our Club and thank you again.
