Over to the TD
Just to clarify that GambleGibbon took no 50 pence bets at The Spittle, although has posted slightly concerning financial results of an £11 deficit following the first event of the season…
The Gibbon Invitational 2012
The TD would urge all members to get sucked into what promises to be a quality golfing extravaganza for the second tour event of the season on Saturday 24th March. The venue will be the Menzies Welcombe Hotel, Spa and Golf Club, Warwick Road, Stratford-upon-Avon, CV37 0NR www.welcombehotelstratford.co.uk/golf.aspx
Bacon Rolls and Coffee will be served in the Ryder Suite from 10.15am and the golf will commence at 11.04am on the 6288 yards par 70 championship course, which includes three par fives and five par threes.
As well as the Gibbon Cap for the winner, the field will be competing for the shark headcover for nearest the pin on the 6th and the dog headcover for the longest drive on the 16th – these prizes will be supplemented by the introduction of the Antique Clear bottle and the Antique Green bottle respectively and there will also be a prize awarded for the straightest drive on the 8th. The last-placed entrant will also of course be required to see off the contents of the WHVGS foot and a half in view of the membership following the event.
The prize structure for the event will follow an innovative and superior format which will reward all entrants and will also ensure that every stapleforth point scored will influence the overall prize allocation.
Following the golf, the players will return to the Ryder Suite for Chicken & Mushroom pie with seasonal vegetables and new potatoes.
The entire cost of this fabulous event will be £40 per person inclusive of competition entry fees – please therefore inform the TD as soon as possible that you plan to get sucked in.
Optional additional costs
Buggies – £25 (please advise the TD if you would like one booked).
Range tokens – £3 for 40 balls.
Strokesaver cards – £4.
GambleGibbon wagers – £1 minimum, £5 maximum.
Lovely. The TD.
