Club Captain hits the ground running!!!

Congratulations to Graham Popple who has set the record for a round of golf at Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club.  As part of his celebration of his birthday, Graham raced around the Martello course in 66 mins & 27 seconds with a score of 88.  He was aided by caddie Charlie Snelgrove who also ran the course, Course Marshal Chris Pearson, and James Douglas-Hamilton acting as time keeper.  Graham has really set the example for rapid play and ready golf – well done Graham.  The event has raised over £100 for the Captain’s Charity.

FFGC England Golf Nomination

FFGC are very proud to announce we have been nominated for England Golf’s ‘Championship Venue of the Year’ award.  We are hugely excited and very grateful to all our staff, volunteers and members for their help during the English Women’s County Finals back in September.  Please see England Golf’s website for details.

Message from Allan Wells, Seniors Chairman

Apart from wishing you all seasonal greetings, I thought a recap on the year would be of some interest to our members.

Unfortunately we sadly lost a Senior stalwart in Ken Cutting who will be greatly missed. Ken looked after the Bishops Chalice for many years and I’m sure you might recall Ken with his clipboard which became the famous nickname of “Captain Clipboard”
It is the committee’s intention to have a Ken Cutting trophy which will be played for in conjunction with the first Chalice round next October.
