New Caterer for Gorleston Golf Club

Gorleston Golf Club are delighted to announce our new Caterer, Simon Wainwright of SW1 Restaurant in Gorleston. The association will be known as SW1 at Gorleston Golf Club. SW1 is a well regarded local restaurant and we at Gorleston Golf Club are looking forward to welcoming Simon and his team to the Club.

Simon, pictured above, said: "I am extremely excited for this opportunity of working with Gorleston Golf Club and believe, with my 25 years of catering experience, that myself and my team can deliver the same standard of food which Tim has provided for the last 22 years and also bringing in some new ideas as well!"

Many golfers throughout Norfolk and Suffolk will remember our super Caterer, Tim Riley, and his Crackling Caterers. Tim has been with Gorleston Golf Club for 22 years and has decided to retire. We have been extremely lucky to have had Tim as our Caterer and the quality of his food is acclaimed across the area.

Tim is going to take up golf again in his retirement when he will have the time to enjoy it. He has worked tirelessly during his time at the Golf Club and we wish him the very long, healthy and happy retirement which he richly deserves.

CAPTAINS' DRIVE IN REPORT DATED 11 APRIL 2021

As we know things are currently far from what we might have expected them to be in previous years and the Cub Captains' Joint Drive In has been no exception.

As members are aware this is a great Fun Event which is held annually on the Sunday immediately following the Club's AGM. This year COVID restrictions meant that the Captains could not encourage a crowd of members and their families to attend the event which is often followed by one of Tim's fabulous Sunday lunches.

The Club Captain, John Hopwood, and the Ladies Captain, Vonnie Thornton, have nominated the East Anglian Air Ambulance as their joint Charity for the year and were very keen to ensure that this fund raising opportunity did not go by unnoticed.

To this end and in very cold cross winds, bringing with it some light rain, the four Captains met, unbeknown to most Member and Committee, at 3.15 on Friday 9 April, 2021, and bravely proceeded to hit their drives.

First off was Ladies Captain, Vonnie, who had just played 18 holes with a new Member. Vonnies drive was a low one which headed left towards the gorse. Ceryse Fuller, Junior Captain, was the next to hit her drive which she pushed high over into the woods on the right hand side of the first fairway.

Following this it was the turn of the men with the Seniors' Captain, Martin Pestle, whose drive went just right of the fairway by the rose bush. Last, but by no means least, it was the turn of the Club Captain, who in his words 'pulled one out of the bag' straight down the middle of the fairway. Many thanks are due to the Captains who helped to raise £187 for the Joint Charity, to Duncan Abbot and John Maddock for their adjudications and to Maggie Hart for taking photographs of the event. The Captains wish to pass on their sincere thanks to all Members and Sponsors for their generosity.

The winners are as follows:

Ladies Captain: 95 yards - Keith Wright (107 yards)
Juniors Captain: 132 yards - Pat Sterry (123 yards)
Seniors Captain: 179 yards - Jonathan Bloomfield (176 yards)
Captain: 183 yards - Barrie Peaks spot on (183 yards) unlucky Gerry Eagling with 184 yards.
