Members Newsletter – April 2022
From the Food and Beverage Manager:
To all members,
Spring looks like it is finally here, and it is great to see more of you all starting to return to the course and meet in the clubhouse.
First and foremost, I would like to highlight a change in our opening hours for the month of April. As the nights are getting lighter and the mornings brighter, we will now be opening the clubhouse from 7.00am-7.00pm, this will be under review as the month progresses and I will adjust accordingly due to business demands.
Food will be available from 7.30am until 5.00pm. Please watch this space and listen out for updates with regards to new food items and offerings from the kitchen and bar for the summer.
As most of you have probably noticed, we have incorporated a new cafe into the driving range, as we believe we can offer a better experience up there. The cafe is still very much in its infancy, but I would like to create a more relaxed experience and will look to move some seating and parasols outside so you can enjoy a refreshing beverage. Currently it is open from 12.00pm until 4.30pm but as the same with the clubhouse, I will look to expand as the demand grows.
Within the clubhouse, Przemek and I have been looking to roll out a new bar menu, this will include such favourites as the club sandwich and chicken skewers, but we are keen to add more dishes and expand the menu with some of the favourites purchased from the specials board and lighter bites for the summer months.
I have been reviewing our drinks options as I am aware that a J20 is a standard product found anywhere, so I have recently been purchasing Fentimans drinks so please give them a try. It isn’t the finished article, but I am keen to bring you a bespoke drinks menu this year that you can all enjoy. For the cider drinkers, I am also looking at our draught options!
We have also seen further investment back of house in the kitchen from our parent company. We have on order a brand new chargrill, pizza oven, dishwasher, and glasswasher. Although you won’t see this, it is a sign of their commitment to really give us the tools to improve the standard of food and drink offered to you all.
As you may have seen around the clubhouse and on social media, we offered a Mother’s Day roast dinner at the end of March, launching a new concept of a sharing platter. We will be hosting this on the last Sunday of each month. We had great success last week with 81 bookings and feel that with our locally sourced butchers, providing quality joints that are perfectly cooked by our chef’s, it is a fantastic meal for you all and your family. For more information, please ask at the bar or speak to Gemma to book a table.
