Colin Bristow Memorial Trophy
Played At Withernsea Golf Club
This year’s Col Bristow's mystery pairs memorial trophy was well attended as always
bringing 32 players in trying to get their name on the trophy.
Well done to everyone, some good darts thrown, some good matches played and
plenty of good beer drank in the golf club
This year’s event raised an impressive £245 for charity.
A keenly contested final saw Col Mason and Dabba come from 1-0 down to beat
Storky and John Bates in a tight last leg decider which could have gone either way
We have now put in place two new Committees made up of members who have volunteered to give their time freely for the benefit of the Club and it's members. The committees are working to a brief which is intended to improve the club and course in an attempt to grow the club and improve the experience of being a member. We hope that you will support the work being done by the committees, remember that they are working for the members and please feel free to make them aware of any constructive ideas that you may have.

Bar, Food and Entertainments Committee
As you aware, work has now finished on the interior of the Clubhouse. Thank you to Lee, John, Paul, Tom, and all others who have given up their time to help the club with this project.
We now feel it is time to introduce a new committee to bring fresh ideas and impetus to the management of our food and drinks offering. The income from memberships is going to grow this year but the income stream from the clubhouse is vital to the club’s viability.
Initially, at least, this committee will be headed up by Captain Dave and Andy Collins. However, these two have other responsibilities within the club, and it is hoped that in time they can hand over the reins to others.
Among the responsibilities of the new committee will be:
Recruitment and management of Staff.
Deciding Opening Hours
Ordering and stock control of drinks
Marketing for functions such as weddings, wakes, birthday parties etc.
Re introducing regular, quiz nights, race nights etc.
Exploring ways to “kick start” our food offering
Looking at viable alternatives such as Franchising
Liaising with the competition committee about catering for open competitions etc.
Liaising with Seniors committee to provide catering for inter-club matches.
Introducing Dress and Behaviour Code
We hope that each member of the committee will play an active part in helping to turn around the fortunes of the club.
If you are interested, please contact Dave (07873 160865) or Andy (07803 942594)
Withernsea Golf Club General Committee
After so many months without any 'indoor facilities' at the club the decision has been taken to increase the number of sessions that the bar will open. We are doing this to so that we can offer the facility to more members, especially during the summer months.
The extended hours are listed below and have been arrived at by listening to members and trying to gauge when an open bar will be a welcome facility. obviously we will continually monitor the situation and if any sessions are identified as being ones that members do not wish to take advantage of then we will need to adjust accordingly.
The hope is that we can find the hours that members want to use the bar and then ensure that it will be open but we cannot, for obvious reasons, open and staff the bar when it is not required.

Although they will always be primarily a Golf Club, In recent months Withernsea Golf Club has welcomed non golfers to their Egroms Lane site to join them in non-Golfing activities. Tuesday night darts has become a very popular fixture with those that have played for years, and some who have never thrown a dart in anger, joining in a fun evening. More recently the introduction of a pool table has given others a reason to visit.
With the help of Active Withernsea and Sport England we are now looking forward to seeing new and regular faces joining us to enjoy our boules court. The open day will be Saturday August 20th and you will be able to come along and try your hand or just watch others. Many of you will have played on your holidays around the med, now you can play almost on your own doorstep.
