Message From The Captain
Thank you for supporting me so far in my year of being your Captain of Darlington Golf Club. As we approach the longest day 21st June and part way through the season I thought I would take a moment to reflect on what has happened so far during my year and what the rest of the year holds for us.
Last year our Team won their league and were promoted to the 1st Division and although it has been a bit of a baptism of fire this year, especially as most of last year’s players and team members had decided to go to pastures new. Those that have stepped up and are representing our club at the highest level have been trying their best to get Darlington Golf Club positive results. It has not been easy and it has been noticeable in the scratch team section where the difference from last year to this year has been noticed most, but I know that all of our players never give in and compete as hard as they can. It would be nice to have a few more supporters at home games to give our team a morale boost so if you can make it for an hour or two on a weds night you would be most welcome, after all it is our club.
As I am writing this we are approaching my captains weekend, and I hope you are able to come along and enjoy the weekend as much as I will and help me raise money for my chosen charities , MAIN and Darlington Hospital Maternity Bereavement Room. We have a full weekend with nearest the pin competitions for both the men and ladies on the Saturday, on the evening we are having a barbeque and being entertained by Big Si and the Yawns, who have performed for us before and should be a great night, so don’t forget to get your tickets. On the Sunday we have a 3 person team Texas Scramble event in the morning and a carnival fun afternoon from 2 :00 to 4:00 where you can go for the fastest lap on the 8 lane Skalextric Track, win prizes on the tombola, putting and chipping competitions, face painting, bouncy castle and other attractions for the family. Bring your children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts or even borrow the neighbours kids for a great fun filled afternoon and help to raise funds for charity.
I look forward to meeting you all at the weekend and wish you all good golf and good health

⛳️GOOD LUCK SIMON!
Our Assistant Pro Simon is moving on to a new challenge working 6 months of the year in America and 6 Months at Rockliffe Hall as part of their Team.
Simon is staying on as a Social Member and as a PGA member gets full use of our facilities so you will still see him round the club and playing for the Darts team on a Thursday Night.
This week is Simon’s last with his last shift on Sunday and he fly’s to America on Tuesday for a 2 week holiday. To give Simon a good send off we are having a few beers Sunday Evening and taking him out for a Ruby Murray! Everyone Welcome!
We have a small collection running in the shop and also behind the bar.
We wish Simon all the best and good luck for this exciting new chapter in his career. From Me, Laura and all at Darlington GC
