Dear Members & Owners,
Well what turbulent times we have been through over the past 18 months, and all our thoughts are with all the people who have either been affected by this terrible virus directly or indirectly.
Hopefully things are returning to normal and we can again enjoy the amenities and life style at Desert Springs. You are probably all aware of the packed programme for September and October, but I will remind you just in case: –
- 25th & 26th September – DESERT CLASSIC – followed by BBQ and watching the last day of the Ryder Cup.
- 2nd & 3rd October – THE CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP AND STABLEFORD – followed by Gala Dinner and dancing.
- 9th October – CAPTAIN’S CHARITY DAY (Fancy Dress – NHS) – followed by International Buffet and dancing.
- 16th & 17th October – THE CLUB HANDICAP SALVER
- 22nd & 23rd October – INDIANNA MASTERS – followed by Tapas Buffet and Quiz.
The main reason I am contacting you is to let you know about the three lots I will be auctioning on the night of the Gala dinner. My charity is called Asprodalba, which is a charity for young mentally handicapped people in the area around Desert Springs who desperately need our help. The reason I am letting you know about them in advance is that some of you may not be able to be at Desert Springs in October and would like to send me a sealed bid, and some of you may want to speak to friends and colleagues at home first to see if you would like to bid.
The lots are: –
- Three rounds of golf on the beautiful Gower Peninsula for 4 people, with three nights B&B at Chez Webster, thanks to my lovely wife . The courses are Clyne GC (my home course) – a heathland course overlooking Swansea Bay. Welsh golf club of the year 2019. Pennard GC – in the top 50 links courses in the UK. Overlooking the Gower Peninsula. Machynys GC – Jack Nicholas designed links course on the estuary and the venue for many championships.
- Thanks to Alan Patterson and Rory McCartney a round of golf for 4 people (2 with Alan and 2 with Rory) on the Dunluce Championship course at Port Rush, the home of the 2019 Open, and a 4 ball round on the beautiful adjoining Valley course .
- For the cricket fanatics amongst you, via his parents at Desert Springs, our English cricket captain Joe Root, and seemingly the only great batsman we seem to have, has donated one of his bats personally signed by him.
Well what can I say but dig deep for these lots and help some people who desperately need it. If you want to send me a bid by email please do so.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
