CAPTAIN’S BLOG 30/06/2020
Greetings to all of our Members at South Kyme.
Here at South Kyme we are gradually getting back to normal through what has been a shocker of a start for my year as The Club Captain. With only one week in to my year, Covid – 19 decided to come along and scupper us completely. Thankfully, it looks as though we are through the worst of the pandemic and with Lockdown rules easing; we are starting to build up the club back to be the great place that it is for us all to enjoy again.
I give a great big thank you to all of our members that have stood by us and helped us through the difficult time, and massive thanks goes out to the Greens Staff who have maintained the course during Lockdown. You are all the heartbeat of the club.
I offer a very warm welcome to all of the new members who have joined us and I hope that you are enjoying your golf on our beautiful course. You will find as we return to normal times that South Kyme is a very warm and friendly welcoming club. with the catering due to reopen, I hope that in the coming weeks I will be able to meet up with you to reinforce these words.
To one and all at SKGC Happy Golfing To You All !!
CAPTAIN’S FIRST BLOG 22/03/2020
Today’s Tricast numbers were 3 9 8 and there were no winners or consolation prizes.
The Tricast has now been suspended until further notice.
The Captain’s Blog will resume when everything returns to normal and so will I!
CAPTAIN’S INAUGURATION SPEECH
Mr President, Mr Chairman, Past Captains, Ladies Captain, Members of South Kyme Golf Club.
- I am extremely proud to stand here today as Captain of SKGC. Not only as the first Female Captain of this great Golf Club but also as one of the few ever elected in the County. Never, in my wildest dreams did I imagine when I joined in 2008 that 12 years later I would be stood here. It is a great honour and builds on my being the first Female Rabbits Captain in 2012. Many thanks to the past Captains for putting their faith in me. I hope that I will do you all proud.
- Firstly I would like to thank outgoing Captain Ray for all his sterling work. Not only as Captain but for his work on the course. He and his merry band of men have delivered constant improvements despite the elements often being against them.
- I would like to thank;
Cheryl and Trina for running the Half-Way-House this morning. No doubt I will be calling on you for other occasions during the year.
The Green staff for their efforts in preparing the course for today.
Pete and Martin for now and in advance as I am sure I will be pestering them over the coming months.
Steve Barlow who has agreed to be my Vice Captain. Does he know what he has let himself in for! Time will tell.
- I intend to support two Charities this year both of which mean a lot to me and my daughters. In memory of Mick Fewings and his wife Jean. Mick was a long time member until ill health prevented him from playing. The two Charities are Macmillan’s and Parkinson’s and my Daughter Lucy is a volunteer for both. I will continue to use the 18th Bunker for Macmillan’s and have added the 14th Pond for Parkinson’s. All donations gratefully received.
- One of my Major jobs is to relieve you of cash, so I will continue to run the Tricast to raise money for Projects. I will be looking for suggestions from you the members, where upon I will get costs associated with the suggested project, although the suggestion of a hot tub on the practice green has been refused. (Thanks John).
- As the money roles in, there will be a thermometer to show the total monies raised so you can follow how we are progressing. Thanks in advance to my Brother Neil who will run this for me.
- During the year I look forward to working and associating with all sections and their members within the club. If anyone in the club has any issues feel free to approach me and I will be happy to listen and chat (unless your name is Mick or Gary).
You must all be bored by now so I will finish by wishing you all a happy and successful golfing year.
Good evening everyone,
12 months have come & gone, & unfortunately many of them with record rain fall. As I hand over the Captaincy next week this will be my last blog to you all. I would like to start by thanking all of you who have supported me in the weekly draw by religiously putting in your pounds, as you know this is split between the Captains fund & the Tricast, not only does it give you a chance to win the jackpot, it raises vital funds to be able to improve the course & the club house. I am pleased to say I have paid out 5 Jackpots & 33 consolation prizes through out my year. I hope your next Captain “Carole” enjoys the overwhelming support I have had from many of the members, but a special thanks go to the Seniors who have a 5 day membership for their support & banter, you will now be able to walk into the club house without having to run the gauntlet, I appreciate how difficult it must have been getting past both myself & Pete Williams to pay the competition subs. (Thanks Pete for the intensive training course on how to do it).
Todays draw pulled out the numbers 400, with no winners or consolation winners I will be passing over £68.00 to your next Captain for next weeks draw..
Many thanks once again for all your support for my year in office.
sorry about the delay with yesterdays blog but the server decided to go on strike, any way up & running this morning so here are the Tricast draw numbers. 986 were the lucky numbers but unfortunately not for many of you, however Mick Dalby had them in the correct order so wins this weeks jackpot of £120.00. Well done Mick.
Todays Tricast draw numbers drawn were 392, no winners or consolation prizes.
Just think if won last week with 932 you could have had a consolation prize this week, & yes all the other numbers were in!.
nearly an inch of rain again overnight so not surprised the course was closed, however with a club full of members for the annual draw, the Tricast draw took place immediately after. Todays numbers were 932 which produced no winners or consolation prizes.
Next weeks estimated jackpot should be £75.00. Good luck.
Another Sundays golf spoilt by gales, sleet & rain, I just wonder when the weather is going to pick up & let us catch up on the cancelled games. Todays £500.00 Tricast jackpot was won by Richard Attwell with 113. Well done Richard.
Unfortunately 11mm of rain over a short period closed the front nine today & cancelled the medal, but on a brighter note the Sunday lunch & Tricast draw both went ahead, the numbers drawn were 495, again no winners & also no consolation winners. The jackpot rolls over to next week with an estimated £480.00 up for grabs.
Good evening once again,
I can’t believe another week has passed already, we really are on the count down to end of my captaincy in March. After a dry week it has to spoil itself & rained again, hopefully not to much so we can’t get out tomorrow & do some more drainage work on the course. We have a lot of clearing up to do after the trenching that has take place last week.
You just know its your day when you come in with a nett 63 & then take a consolation prize in the Captains draw, very well done Glyn Lewis, the numbers drawn were 237, no winners but sharing the consolation prize with Glyn were Tony Harvey & D Tinkler, each receiving £10.00. The jackpot rolls over & is an estimated £440.00.
See you all next week so you can get your lucky numbers for Sunday.
Good evening all,
Well what a difference a bit of sunshine makes, a lot of happy golfers & no grumbles, if it manages to stay like this for a few days the course should dry out a bit with all the drainage work that has taken place, yes, still a lot to do but we are getting there. The 9th fairway will be tackled tomorrow & then in front of the ladies tee on the 18th.
The Tricast draw today produced the numbers 778, no winners or consolation prizes so the estimated jackpot will be in the region of £380.00, worth having, so don’t forget to get your numbers.
Not another good day for golf unfortunately, with another down pour last night leaving the course a little damp in places. However no matter what the weather the Tricast draw goes ahead. Todays numbers drawn were 812 with nobody having them in the correct order it was left up to my Vice Captain Carole Fewings to take the consolation prize of £19.00. Well done Carole.
it was nice to see many smiling faces today as the weather was for once in our favour, good company & 16 holes open. It is hoped with a decent day tomorrow we will mange to finish the work on the 7th hole, which will allow all 18 to be playable again. While we are on a roll I am pleased to say the Tricast jackpot was won today with the LUCKY numbers 666, well done Nick Fewings, I can assure you Nick I wasn’t have a laugh when you asked me to put in some random numbers for your second choice. The new Jackpot stands at £290.00 so good luck. Happy New Year to you all.
Firstly I must apologise for being late with my blog, as with other things, best laid plans don’t always happen. Another wet week & like most clubs in the area we have our challenges but do get a game in now & again.
The Tricast draw always take place regardless of the weather & this weeks numbers were 267, again no winners & no consolation prizes. The £500.00 rolls on for another week, so good luck with your selections.
May I take this opportunity to wish every member a Happy Christmas & a Prosperous New Year.
Good evening once again,
After todays Christmas dinner at the club, the Tricast numbers 137 were drawn. No winners or consolation winners this week. So yet again another rollover.
Good luck to all for next weeks draw. Regards, Ray.
Unfortunately the weather beat us again today with the loss of our Christmas Cracker competition & presentation day. However the Tricast draw went ahead as usual. 132 were the lucky numbers drawn & with no winners once again only Carl Markham came away smiling as he claimed the consolation prize of £27.00. Well done Carl. The £500.00 jackpot will roll over to next week & could possibly make a nice Christmas bonus for someone.
Good luck, Ray.
I can’t believe we only have this month left & another year has passed by, lets all hope 2020 will be a drier year & we can all enjoy some good golf . The Tricast numbers drawn today were 618, no winners & no consolation prizes so the Jackpot rolls over to next week.
Good luck again, Ray.
well we managed to have 9 holes open for the Winter league today, & it was nice to see the club house back in use on a Sunday, & many of you subscribing to the Tricast in the hope of winning the jackpot. 968 were the lucky numbers but no ones luck was in today, so the jackpot rolls over to next week so we can all try again.
Good luck. Ray.
what a miserable wet week again, not much golf played & not many on the Tricast sheet, however the draw went ahead & the numbers drawn were 432, no winners & one consolation winner. Alister Grant receives £12.00 . Well done Alister, you are having a good run of luck these last few weeks. Don’t forget there is still a £500.00 jackpot up for grabs.
the weeks seem to fly by & here we are again on another Sunday evening, although the course was closed & the Halifax Trophy competition had been cancelled, there was a good turnout of members for the Memorial Service which took place at the new site near the Clubhouse. The Tri-cast was drawn to a conclusion today, as the reserve jackpot has reached £500.00. It took 5 attempts to draw the winning numbers which were 349 & the lucky winner was Mick Whitehouse. Well done Mick.
Don’t forget we are still drawing for £500.00 next week so get your numbers. Also please remember we have the AGM tomorrow night so if you want to know what’s going on in the Club come along & find out.
Unfortunately only a few in the club house today owing to the bad weather yesterday, but the Tri cast draw went ahead as usual, the numbers drawn were 927. Again no winners or consolation winners. As the reserve Jackpot now stands at £500.00 the main Jackpot will be repeatedly drawn next week until we have a winner.
Good luck to all who enter.
Todays Tri cast draw took place with only 3 members in the club house, due to the bad weather yesterday, 755 was drawn out with no winners or consolation winners. The jack pot rolls over once again to next week.
Yet another week goes by & no one wins the Jack pot. Andy Ballantyne came close but not close enough, the winning numbers were 192 so Andy having them in the wrong order gets a £38.00 consolation prize. Surely it must go soon, so keep getting your numbers.

today was captain’s day & what a good day I had & by the comments received so did many of you, which is what its all about. A little windy, a tiny bit of rain towards the end & a lovely halfway house put on by the Ladies Captain Myra with the aid of all the cake makers in her section & my good Lady serving the drinks. There were many winners today in all the various categories & well done to all, but todays overall winner with a magnificent hole in one in the process goes to Mrs Heather Dopierala, congratulations Heather.
The Tri-cast draw with the numbers 622 failed to produce any winners or consolation prizes today so the £500.00 jackpot rolls over to next week. Don’t forget you have to be in it to win it.
Todays Tricast draw numbers were 652 with no one having them in the correct order, however J Oxby collects a £48.00 consolation prize for having the correct numbers in the wrong order. Good try but not quite good enough. The jackpot will roll over to next week with the magical £500.00 up for grabs.
After heavy rain yesterday & more during the night it was good to see the course open this morning for the 4th round of the Stableford Championship. Todays winner was Daniel Holt with a great score of 43 points. Well done Daniel.
The £500.00 Jackpot was up for grabs again today with the lucky numbers being 602, this was won by Bill Cambell, who must have felt guilty walking past me yesterday on his way out & came back to put in his pound. Good move Bill & well done. The estimated Jackpot for next week is £350.00 so still worth having a go.
Short & sweet tonight as time is pressing. The Tri-cast numbers in todays draw were 838, again nobody wanted to win so the £500.00 jackpot rolls over onto another week. We also had no consolation winners. Better luck next week.

The winning team with 127 was Alan Wells & his water Buffalo’s winning on count back from the Dunrobsons, (not a good idea Alan pushing the Captain back into 2nd place, you could find your personal start Tee being the 4th) only joking, well played to you all. Thanks must go to all the people who made this happen, from every one in the Pro’s shop, the starters, card checkers, bookers in, green staff & volunteers, Rabbits section for providing the halfway house, the Ladies who served up all the refreshments & not forgetting all the kitchen & bar staff.
