Dear Ian

I write following my Captain's Challenge in late June. I wanted to thank you, the staff and members of Lytham Green drive Golf Club for all your help, support and hospitality, when I played my complimentary round on Thursday 21st June 2018. The weather was lovely and I, and my fellow members from Mytton Fold, (who were supporting me in playing Lytham Green Drive as part of my challenge), thoroughly enjoyed playing your course.

I would also like to make mention of a group of members, who greeted me on the course and gave me a donation for my charity, Anxiety UK. It was most unexpected, but also very kind of them. Upon receipt of all the sponsorship money, I can report that the sum of £1,300 has been raised. I could not have done this without your willingness to assist me in completing my challenge.

Thank you once again.

With best wishes,

Yours sincerely

Gary Ashton
Captain
Mytton Fold Golf & Hotel.

Dear Ian,
I hope you don’t mind, but I wanted to drop you a line regarding Junior Golf at Green Drive.
Since joining last year I have been delighted with the opportunities and help that Jack has received. Simon Wilson has been superb – giving individual junior lessons for only 10 pounds is a fantastic way to support junior golf and his manner, enthusiasm and patience has been instrumental in helping Jack’ golf develop. I cannot praise his approach highly enough.
Mike Harding is doing a great job with the Junior Section – Jack was representing Green Drive at the Inter-Club comp at Fairhaven today and Mike – after giving up his afternoon yesterday to organise a practice – Mike was there today to make sure the boys were all ok.
In short, my experience as a father of a junior golfer at the club, means I have nothing but praise for the way the junior golf is going at the club.
Jack has been allowed to play in some comps, including the Rabbits match – he has won a junior comp – really enjoyed his golf and improved significantly as a golfer.
My thanks again to everyone involved in junior golf at the club – and please feel free to pass on this email should you wish.
Kindest regards,
Phil.

Re: Lancashire County Senior Ladies Golf Association Silver Slipper Competition

Dear Mr Stewart,
  On behalf of the LCSLGA I would like to thank Lytham Green Drive Golf Club for kindly hosting the above competition. We are extremely grateful to you and everyone at the club but in particular would like to mention the starter, Neville, the catering staff and greens staff, who all supported the event.
The course was well presented and provided a fitting test for the ladies who took part and were really pleased to have such good weather.
The organisers were impressed with the catering staff and how they worked tirelessly throughout the day to keep the competitors fed and watered.
Thank you again for allowing us to use your club and of course supplying sunny Lytham weather

Yours sincerely
Christine Entwistle
Hon. Secretary LCSGA

Re: Myerscough College / University of Central Lancashire Golf Teams 2017 / 2018

On behalf of the student team players and management staff involved with the aforementioned teams, I would again like to take this opportunity to thank the committee, dignitaries, club staff and members for the generosity shown in allowing both the College and the University teams to facilitate (a) golf events and (b) compete in the British Colleges and Universities (BUCS) Northern Premier League & Conference matches at such a prestigious and welcoming venue as Lytham Green Drive Golf Club.
The Academic year as a hole has been a resounding success, with the continuation of the two fantastic golf days (The Junior "Champion of Champions" event and the Alumni Golf Day) as well as the University teams performing well in the BUCS Leagues, producing a "clean sweep' of League Championship Titles, namely the BUCS Championship League (North), and BUCS Northern Premiership Leagues 1A and 3A. They also managed to win the Conference Cup too, making it the best year ever in terms of results.
All the above would not be possible without the support of a fantastic 'home' venue and we are extremely grateful to once again have received support from Lytham Green Drive Golf Club, therefore we would like to take this opportunity to place on record our sincere thanks to:   The Course Manager and his green staff, who prepared the course in excellent condition for the duration of our seasonal matches (given the awful Winter and weather we had), the professional staff in the Golf Shop and last but not least, Sarah, Patricia and yourself for all your help, your welcoming attitude and correspondence since our original contact in Autumn of 2013.
Ian, may I take this opportunity to wish all at Lytham Green Drive a fruitful and enjoyable Summer of golf and we hope that once again be permitted to return next year for another fantastic season of fixtures (and annual repeat of both events) as without support from venues like Lytham Green Drive, such opportunities would not be viable.
With very best wishes

Dear Captain and Council members
We are all quick to moan, no need to tell you that!
However I would just like to say what an absolute pleasure it is nowadays to deal with the Pro shop. I cannot believe the service that Simon and his team are now giving to us.
The Ladies coaching sessions are proving to be popular, fun and very worthwhile. What a great idea during the awful weather.
It doesn't just stop there though. When I've ordered shoes and clubs not only does the item arrive promptly but I receive an email advising that it's waiting for me in the pro shop. I've also had a follow up email to say that he hopes I'm happy with my purchase.
Yesterday was the icing on the cake though. During a private coaching session with Simon he suggested one of the answers to my problems (there are many!) might be to shorten my irons. I left 2 sets of clubs with him at 1pm and by tea time he had emailed with the cost and to say that they were done and ready for collection.
It's a great shame that he's joined us during such a prolonged spell of bad weather and I hope that in future that members will give our new pro and his shop the support that it now deserves.
Regards
Helen Robinson

Good morning Sarah
We just wanted to thank you and your team for the great service yesterday at Gladys's funeral. We really appreciated the warm and friendly atmosphere of all the staff and the club its self. I would also like to congratulate the chef, everyone enjoyed the food , the vegan option was very nice indeed and comments about the Hot pot were how tasty it was and the meat so very tender.
I would definitely recommend you all.
Thanks again

Dear Ian and Team
Just a short note to say Thank you so much for all your help in ensuring that the East Division handicap and Bronze Shield Finals ran so smoothly last Monday. The teams were full of praise for the well organised catering (which meant they could focus on the Golf and not worry about food!) and, unsurprisingly, they were very complimentary about the condition of the Golf Course. Please pass on my thanks to the Bar and Catering Staff, Dougie and The Greens Team, Simon, John and Steve for services to flag-raising and lowering!
Thanks again on behalf of Lancashire Ladies County Golf Association.
