ESSEX SECTION


Dear Member

Welcome to another year as a member of the Bigga Essex Section.

Enclosed in

this Fixture List you will find details of events during the forthcoming year, along with all the entry forms for each golf day.

If you happen to lose the booklet don’t

panic, all entry forms will be downloadable from our website.

To remind you of a

forthcoming event you may also receive a text message.

The golf days this year have been organised to be as relaxed as possible with only Chelmsford and Orsett requiring a jacket and tie for dinner.

The golf day at Nazeing on the 22

nd

June will be in the format of blind pairs.

Each

golfer will go out and play their usual stableford game and when everyone has finished the draw will be made to discover whom your partner was, then the best betterball pair will win. This day will also include a barbeque meal.

Every golf day has been priced separately this year depending on what each club has charged us, as you can see they are all very competitively priced. members and guests will pay a flat rate of £25.00.

All non

We will also have some great

raffle prizes throughout the year, so don’t forget to buy your tickets on the golf days and look out for the prizes.

The committee looks forward to welcoming you to the golf days this year; we are sure you will find them very enjoyable. Lets hope for a nice warm summer.

Kind regards

Mark Stopps
