It’s hardly ‘news’ but this weekend is the mighty Ryder Cup at Le Golf National… which I know a quite few across the swindles have played. Going to be fantastic.
Yep, we are all going to again be glued to the TV for 3 days… or all week knowing Sky coverage. Last night’s fantastic win by Tiger and Justin Rose’s securing of the Fedex was a great warm up.
Anyway, at the Club there are at least two events going on…
Wayne has booked tee times from 7am on Friday for a friendly general roll-up (‘more the merrier’ I understand), followed by bangers and mash and to watch Day 1.
Dom is hosting a comp on Sunday for singles day. I hope you received the recent email from Kieran:
As some of you might be aware already, on Sunday 30th September (The Final Day) we have booked out some morning tee times for the members to play in a competition hosted by Dom Khan. The idea being is that we can get as many of you playing so that you can come in of the course after, watch the golf together and hopefully enjoy seeing the professionals do their thing.
We are also planning on organising a BBQ for anyone that plays in the morning to help make the occasion of watching the golf together a bit different. There will be a sign up sheet on the comp boards, please sign up if you would like to play and have the BBQ after. We will need a minimum of 30 people to go ahead with the BBQ and we will need to know a final number by Thursday latest so please put your names down!
Visit the official Ryder Cup website.
As far as I know, it is “all welcome”, but please get hold of Wayne, Dom and/or Kieran for more information and I’ll see you up there.
PS. Swashies, Wing-Commander Adams will confirm later this week but I think Saturday is usual Swindle (not sure if we’ve wangled any earlier times).
PPS. I’m hoping to jump into Dom’s comp but I assume we’ll have a few Swashie times on Sunday as well as Dom’s comp… keep an eye on your email.
