FIVE ROUNDS, 12.5hours; 17 miles, 90 holes; 346 nett score - what an achievement!!
The above facts speak for themselves! Our Captain first tee'd off at 4.20am supported by his son Martin and son-in-law Simon. Bill Millichip joined the Captain for the first two rounds but fell by the wayside exhausted. Colin Talkes walked the third round with the Captain and video'd his game. We should get some great footage, to be used at an appropriate point in the Captains year, once Colin has downloaded it.
Our Vice-Captain Alan and his wife, James Pegg, Frank Carter, Pete Bradley, Nigel Smith and Terry Adam all turned out to assist and support the Captain throughout the remaining final three rounds.He completed his 90th hole at 5.40pm having taken only a 40minute break throughout the day. He chose to refuse the buggy we made available to him and completed all 90 holes on foot.
Many members generously contributed charity donations in the clubhouse and the Captain will be collecting the remaining donations from members over the coming few days.
The bar has now been set extremely high and our future Captain's, who might be considering challenging this unique record, should firstly be getting medical clearance, spouse permission and psychiatric help!
Mayor's charity day 22 Sept 2017
Last year Chilwell Manor were privileged to be selected as the choice Broxtowe course to host the Mayor and his guests. They were immensely complimentary about the course and the catering and have asked that we host them again this year. To that end we have agreed to host this years Mayor, Halimah Khaled MBE, and her 80 guests on Friday 22nd September, 2017. The day will be a shotgun start at 1pm. Any members looking to play on that day are asked to tee off as early as possible in the morning so that all tees are cleared by 12.45pm.

The Traffic Management is in place to protect the course during the winter months.
If it is necessary to move the posts or lower the ropes when it impedes your shot, you must replace them in the exact position from where they were removed from.
There have been instances where posts have been taken out and left lying on the floor and players have been seen standing on the ropes, this is not acceptable.
The situation will be monitored and if there is not an improvement, further measures may be required.
They are there for a reason, please respect them.
