Colonel and Mrs Charles Crossland (Pannal GC, Harrogate):  We drove down from Yorkshire to support our County in the Finals last week.   We were most impressed by every single aspect of the organisation from the condition of the Course to the excellent hospitality and the friendly reception.

“Having been involved with organising and administering golf events, albeit at a lower level, we have some idea of the amount of work which the Club must have put in and we should be be most grateful if you would convey our appreciation and congratulations to the Captains, Committees, Members, Head Green Keeper and his staff and all concerned (not forgetting yourself and your staff) for a most successful outcome.”

Norfolk’s Chloe Rowswell’s mum and grandparents (Stan and  Wendy  Evans and Carina Rowswell):  “We would like to say a big thank you. We enjoyed our visit to the club for the Ladies National County finals.

“Everyone was so friendly and made us feel really welcome. The course was also most enjoyable to walk round in the sunshine. Everything was organised so well and Chloe enjoyed saying hello to the car park attendants.

Thank you to everyone involved in the organising of such a prestigious event

Norfolk hopes to be at Felixstowe Golf club ( a little nearer to home ) for the Finals in 2017.”

Jenny, Staffordshire – “We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here at Waterlooville. You have made us very welcome, especially as you have given up your lovely course for a week. The members have really helped with the friendly atmosphere and we appreciate their help as caddies, spotters, car park attendants, and even taxi driver to and from the practice ground! Particular thanks to our hostess, Diane, who has helped with all manner of odd requests! The catering has been excellent – efficiency and very tasty. I especially enjoyed the hot buffet lunches and the carrot cake…! The course has been in excellent condition, with fast, true greens. The pro-shop has been well stocked and we have bought quite a few things between us. Thank you for having us!
