FFGC at it’s best!!

As you will all know, we were delighted to hold the Women’s County Nationals from 18th – 22nd September.  It was a fantastic week and there are now photo’s on this website to view.  We would like to thank all the staff, volunteers and members who made it such a memorable week for the Club.  There is a great timeline chart in the conservatory to view along with lots of new signage to make the Club more up to date.  The course has been excellent with a lot of hard work by our green keeping staff.  The kitchen has produced some wonderful food, courtesy of our new chef, Tony, and the rest of our staff have given the Club 100%.  Thank you to everyone involved.

Inaugural Bill Bannister Trophy

On a warm, sunny morning Richard Bannister took to the tee to fire off the first shot in the inaugural running of the Bill Bannister Trophy. Although, interrupted by a thunder storm the event was a great success with 80 players taking part in the Greensome Stableford competition.

Bill was a constant figure around the club for many years and was well known around the town through his Estate Agency business. It was a pleasure seeing his wife Sue, son Richard and grandson at the Club.

The Mens event was won by David Bloom and Peter Howarth with a very good score of 42 points and the Ladies event was won by Rose Stollery and Pat Sharp with 39 points.
