Congratulations to Filton Member Mitch Waite (Fourth from the left), who last week won his first Cap playing for England.

Mitch and the England team came runner-up in the European Amateur Team Championship at the Faldo-designed course, in Berlin.

What a fantastic achievement for someone who is still a member of our club and who came through the Filton Juniors Program.

So far this year Mitch has established himself as at the very highest level and just some of his achievements are:

· Represent England
· Leads the English Amateur Order of Merit
· Won the Hampshire Salver
· Runner-up in the European Amateur Championships
· Runner-up – Lytham Trophy
· Third place at The Amateur Championships

FGC FAMILY OPEN DAY - SATURDAY 5TH MAY 2018


For the Family Open Day event - we had a few sleepless nights as only 12 people had informed us that they were coming BUT on the day itself, 40 people turned up which was fantastic.

There was a good mix of guests, 21 males and 19 females and of varying ages as follows:

Ages 1 - 10 12 guests
Ages 11 - 18 9 guests
Ages 19 - 39 8 guests
Ages 40+ 11 guests

We had 5 activity stations with various putting and chipping skills. These were manned by Daryl, Tom, Dave and Adam plus we persuaded Debbie Casling (England Golf) to help as well.

The feedback from the guests on the day was very positive and all enjoyed themselves. There was some interest to have follow on lessons and some interest to join the club so watch this space.

The day was supported by the "Gloucestershire Golf Innovation Fund" and "Get into Golf"  and the feedback from Debbie Casling (England Golf) was that the day was excellent, she was extremely impressed and she might use our event to showcase future 'Get into Golf' events (a fab compliment).

I think the weather helped us in being so successful, along with a lot of organisation and planning prior to the event.

There is a plan to follow up the day with Ladies Taster Sessions and we are working on other similar follow on sessions for the Juniors and Men !

To help support the event we ran a Family Open Day Shambles which was well supported with 22 teams of four. The winners of the Shambles were Rob Green, Mathew Witter, Andrew Thomas and George Thomas with 105 points winning on count back

The hog roast was also a success and enjoyed by everyone.

A big thank you to the organisers of the Event (Tom, Dave, Ian and Lyn) and all those who helped out on the day.
