Rare bird sighted on the Practice Field! On Friday the practice field saw it´s first Helicopter landing. Unfortunately it´s arrival coincided with a torrential downpour but this did not cause the pilot any problems as he landed safely to allow his passenger to get on with his business in nearby Sibsey. The pilot managed to dry out whilst having a drink and snack in the clubhouse before taking off with his passenger in brilliant sunshine.
Although we are not quite ready to paint a large "H" on the practice field we would certainly be happy to accommodate any requests for helicopter landings in the future!

New look to the 17th tee!
You have probably noticed a new look to the 17th tee with some major clearing and replanting having taken place. The garden house previously deep in the trees has also been moved out into the open to make the area to the right of the 17th tee more of a feature. Thanks to Ian Humphries, Keith Kilbourn and John Kadzionis for all their hard work and overseeing the planting and garden house relocation. Also thanks to all those members who have contributed the various plants towards this new project. We are very fortunate to have a number of volunteers who give up their time, many, like the Wednesday crew who can be seen working hard every week and the log cutters who keep the log burner going over winter and many more. It´s great to see members getting involved and there´s always room for anyone else who wants to get involved.
Gala Day - June 2018
The Annual summer gala day was a resounding success on Saturday 30th June which saw a host of teams compete for prizes.
There were other competitions on the day plus a raffle and a ball roll on the 18th.
Everyone who played and just came along for something from the BBQ and a cold drink made the most of the glorious weather and even the Karaoke didn´t send people home too early.
Well done to Ian Taylor who organised the event this year and lets hope even more support this day next year.
Bernies Day Another Successful EventThe Annual Bernie´s Day Am Am took place on Monday 25th June with over 30 teams taking part.
The weather was fantastic as was the support for this event which raised another magnificent sum for this worthy cause, achieving £3,945 this year.
A Win for Calum Walker - Jim Britten Pro-AmIn his third Pro Am at Gainsborough, Calum has achieved his first win despite battling high winds on Friday. Calum´s 5 under par 67 which netted him 41 points was enough to win by one, even with a bogey on the last. This continues his recent form which has seen him with two 3rd places and now his win.
Boston Pair Win Daily Mail Foursomes
Congratulation to Andy Green and Andy Dawson who have won this years Daily Mail Foursomes. The pair achieved this with a 5 & 4 win at St Pierre against a a scratch and 6 handicapper. This is a fantastic achievement and they should be very proud of themselves.
Third Place for Calum
Assistant Professional Calum Walker competed in his second Pro Am on Friday 6th October at Louth where he again did very well and finished tied third. The conditions were good but having never played there before this was was a very satisfying result on what is a difficult course.
Good result for Calum Walker
Assistant Pro Calum Walker competed in the Spalding GC Pro-Am on Thursday 21st September in strong winds and heavy rain where he finished tied in third spot with a level par round. The winning score was four under par.

The day was well supported and on the Boston Golf Club stand around 70 boys and girls had a go at putting and chipping and each one received a sweet reward.

Many thanks to our own Junior Trevor Emberton who helped out on the day, along with Lady Vice Captain Janet Read and Carol Francis.
