As I am sure you are aware the desirability of having a Spike Bar has been the subject of much discussion and debate in our club for some years now.

Through my own experiences and observations as a club member I have always seen clear benefits and opportunities that the creation of such a facility would provide and so in my year as Captain I wanted to do all I could to try and move things forward to make a Spike Bar a reality.

Why do I consider such a facility so vital? This must be considered within the overall perspective of the challenges that we face here and now in securing a sustainable future for our golf club. Along with many local and indeed national golf clubs we face great challenges in maintaining our membership numbers. We must accept that the ongoing reductions seen in the last few years will continue.

So the strongest prospect by far for us to improve income and profitability is to concentrate our efforts in supplying our bar and catering facilities to a wider audience in order to support our prime objective to remain a private members club. A new Spike Bar will allow us to release our first floor facility more often for weddings, events and other social occasions which inevitably mostly occur at weekends.

Our current financial position although solvent is precarious. Pursuing an ability to increase cash flow and profits is not a “nice to have”, it’s a “must have”. More profitable use of our first floor will enhance our prospects allowing us to fund much needed repairs and improvements to the clubhouse and to support our golf activities.

With all of this in mind I am pleased that the council have now approved in principal the creation of a new Spike Bar in the vicinity of the ladies lounge (I can discuss these plans in more detail with any of you who would like to contact me) but there remains a serious stumbling block to progress. Although we have offers of professional help in planning and building the new facility we do not have the financial security to commit the club to the costs anticipated.

I am therefore coming to you, the members, to ask for your help. I am looking to raise an amount of £25k towards this essential project and I am asking you if you feel able to make a donation specifically for this purpose. I cannot offer you anything by way of financial return but I can assure you that you are making a real difference to the future security of our golf club. We will not be providing anything “second rate”, this will be an environment to enjoy and be proud of, please help your club if you can by contacting me with an indication of how much you might be able to contribute.

Thanking you in anticipation.
