Covid Unlocking

At last, some good news on easing of limits and restrictions!

Although the government has decided that most current restrictions need to remain beyond 21 June, we have decided that we will remove the limits on the number of future tee bookings that a member may have at any one time and allow members to bring guests in accordance with the club’s normal rules.

Booking limit

The limit of 3 future bookings in the next 7 days is removed with immediate effect.

Peter Flynn-Harewood Downs

It is with considerable sadness that I have to report that Peter Flynn collapsed on the course at Harewood Downs on Sunday and after valiant efforts by those who found him and the medical services in attendance, Pete passed away. 

Pete had artisan written through him like a stick of rock, covering both treasurer and secretary roles over the years. Recently re-joining after his covid experience, he told us he was so happy, in fact in a far better place than he had been for some time. He loved the Artisan banter and was so pleased to be back playing again.

On Sunday Peter completed his early morning duties before playing a solid 9 holes and was making his way back to his car when he collapsed. He was a loyal, hardworking and much appreciated member of Harewood Downs Artisans and will be missed by all.

Kind Regards

Kevin Fox

Captain HDAGC

Busy weekend

SATURDAY-Well done and a big thank you to all of you who today took on the challenge of a very tough and hot Temple wicket. Losing overall by 7 there is everything to play for in the second half back at our place. Many thanks for your continued support, keep on swinging regards Glenn.

SUNDAY Frank Batting Trophy

Well done to Captain Glenn for winning the Frank Batting Trophy. I have to stress YET AGAIN that you must take time and check your cards before and after your round!! Steve Reed

Message from the Captain

Gents, players required for the next fixture away against Temple on 12th June 3pm start. Also please take time to look at the other two up and coming matches and make yourself available where you can, home to Maidenhead on the 19th and away to Harewood Downs on the 26th. Your club needs you. Keep on swinging, Glenn

Competition Result -Ladies Cup

Message from the secretary
Firstly congrats to Martin Harris for winning the Ladies Cup👏👏
Secondly, I have just entered all the cards and 6 were INCORRECT. Members MUST CHECK THEIR MEDAL SCORE AT THE END OF THE ROUND!!!!! I will accept that some people cannot work out how Stableford scoring works but 6 out of 22 is frankly ridiculous. Please take 5 minutes at the end of the round to check your card

Limits on bookings increased

In summary

  • You can now have 3 future tee time bookings in the next 7 days plus a booking for ‘today’.
  • Guests are still Monday to Thursday only.
  • Tee time booking arrangements after 21 June are still under consideration.

Easing of the booking limit

We are conscious that members are finding the limit of 2 future bookings restrictive, particularly when trying to fix knockout matches.  Although the course is now fuller with societies and guests returning, there are still spaces to play on most days, and the days are still getting longer, so we are increasing the limit on future bookings from 2 to 3 with immediate effect.   Competition bookings (other than knockouts) are not counted within this limit.
