On Saturday 28th September, Filton Members and guests were treated to an excellent, high-quality evening of food and music in the clubhouse. Following a delicious two-course meal provided by an external catering service, the Tina Turner Tribute artiste performed many of her most famous hits, with enthusiastic participation from the audience.
Many thanks to Joseph, Naomi and their teams, plus Alex Bennett, the caterer. And, of course, lets not forget Keith Purnell, our resident Maestro, plus Larry and Ronnie for their huge efforts in organising these events that raise welcome funds for our club.
The next event, The Autumn Spectacular, featuring the Kim Cypher Quartet, which was due to take place on Friday 18th October has, sadly, been cancelled due to lack of support.

Congratulation to both Ladies
Led by a no-nonsense Rob Thorne, a group of FGC member volunteers gave up their September 22nd Sunday afternoon to clear out the Club Bungalow, recently vacated by Julia Rose. This involved completely dismantling and clearing the kitchen, lifting and removing all carpets and underlays, removing numerous laminate floors and dismantling various bedroom and lounge furniture items. In two and a half hours, a large waste skip was completely filled.
This is yet another example of the wonderful support that can be given by our members when the need arises.
Hopefully, this will now enable to club to renovate the bungalow ready for human habitation in the near future.
Many thanks to the group for their magnificent efforts. They are, (from left to right:)

A mention must also be given to Andy Sherlock, who gave up an afternoon a fortnight ago to redecorate a spare room at the back of the kitchen, which is to be used as the Kitchen Laundry Room. Thanks a lot Andy
Following the wonderful Stragglers Fundraising day at Filton Golf Club on Saturday 27th August I am very pleased to be able to present a copy of the message Stragglers Captain Kane Goodman sent out to all his supporters:
"After Saturdays very successful and enjoyable "Open Shambles", hosted by the Stragglers section, I have just had the pleasure of handing over £3547.26 to Marcus Phelps and Phil Donkin.
This amount wouldn't have been possible without prize donations from friends, members and the following local companies:
S&L building and maintenance LTD
BRD Roofing LTD
Thank you to all the pro shop and bar staff, the Stragglers, Filton Club members and guests who made this day possible. And also a huge thanks to Spags for spending 9 hours on the "Beat the Pro" 11th tee and to the lads from local band "Rooted" who well and truly smashed it.
All this money will be put back into the course via the course improvement fund so all members benefit."
I'm sure all of us at Filton Golf Club would like to thank Kane and his Stragglers for a fantastic day which was enjoyed by all. As an addendum, it appears in excess of £3000 was taken behind the bar throughout this day. Well done to all who participated.
A top quality course, peaceful surroundings, attentive and welcoming staff are just some of the compelling reasons to join us here at Filton.
Filton boasts a superb rolling parkland course which is in top condition all year round.
