Kim Hill

Dear Nicola, Yesterday afternoon I had a delegation of WI ladies at my front door telling me all about the excellent lunch they had just had at the Golf Club. They were all most complimentary.  They were most impressed by the meal itself and also by the most attentive and friendly staff. Thank you so much. Please pass on thanks to all the staff at the Club. It only makes me more disappointed that I was unable to be there myself, but I will look forward to attending the Bistro Night next month. Once again, many thanks.

The bar looked very good and welcoming. Megan and Peggy were on hand to meet and greet and make everyone feel welcome. Moving over to the restaurant we immediately noticed something different. It was of course the white tablecloths. It was lovely to see them back after such a long absence. I am sure you will agree it makes Sunday lunch a special occasion. The tables were well laid and we were looked after by staff led by Amanda who always provides attentive and caring service. What an asset to the club. We were also pleased to meet Gigi and Rhea who grew in confidence as the lunch progressed. Well done to Amanda, all the bar and wait staff. Finally, last but not least Chef Craig showed off his culinary skills. The meal he produced was of the highest quality. I had the chicken and Steph the beef. Steph gave me a sample of the beef and I wished I had it too only the chicken was delicious. We paid him the utmost compliment we could by returning 4 clean and empty plates. Our party...

England Golf

It was a pleasure coming to Stowmarket, finally, following two postponed attempts and it felt very fitting to conclude the 2021 series at the venue, it was great to once again meet you, Adrian, Kenton and the rest of the team. The support and organisation prior and during the event were much appreciated and helped ensure these competitions ran smoothly for England Golf, in what were times with some Covid measures and restrictions still in place, and others very recently removed. Equally, I recognise the outstanding work of the greenkeeping team in preparing a well presented gold course for these back-to-back events, in what has been a very challenging year for golf course maintenance due to various lockdowns and then filled tee sheets which we have experienced. I personally thought the course looked fantastic and it has received numerous compliments from those that played since the tournaments. As mentioned above, I think all the Championship team at England Gold were very pleased to...

England Seniors & England Golf Captains

I had the pleasure of playing and visiting the club over the last two days as part of the England Golf events. I want to thank the club for hosting it and please pass on my gratitude to the staff both in B&C, the pro shop and of course the greens staff for the presentation of the course itself. Lastly events like these don’t run as smoothly as this one did without the help and assistance from the club’s members acting as starters, course Marshall’s and such like a big thank you to them too. Kind regardsLawrence Kingsnorth.Captain, Romford Golf Club

Bacton Bowls Dinner

Hello, I am a member of Bacton Bowls Club and would like to say thank you very much for our meal last Saturday evening, our meals have always been delicious and this years was no exception. So a big thank you to all the staff; kitchen, waiting and bar. I look forward to next year. Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and New Year. Best regards, Linda Last

Don’s Diners

Dear Trevor, I write to extend my thanks, on behalf of Don’s Diners, for the use the Clubhouse facilities on Saturday, 19th October, for Don’s Diners Annual Charity Fundraising Event.  Once again we had a successful evening, raising over £1400, which this year was presented to the local Citizens Advice Bureau. That the evening was so successful was also due to the staff on duty. I therefore extend thanks to Chris and his team for the care and attention given, which ensured that everything went smoothly.  I also extend thanks to the kitchen staff under the guidance of Eric for the excellent meal provided. Again I thank you for your support. Yours sincerely  Gerry Thompson

Suffolk County Council Golf Day 2019

Dear Trevor, I wanted to write to thank the club for a wonderful day yesterday. From the moment we arrived ,all of us were made very welcome. In case I miss any names, because everyone was brilliant, I shall not provide individual accolades but from the serving of the bacon rolls, the bar service (the Yardbird beer down a treat following my recommendation!), the lovely meal of chicken breast covered by cheese, not to mention the condition of the golf, everything was first class. Our organiser was effusive in his congratulations but unfortunately not many of the staff were around when we gave them a round of applause when sitting at the table. I was especially happy about yesterday as, to be frank, the society had not been given a particularly good experience by the club in the past. Nothing too bad but the message had spread and was reflected in my speaking to some of the members. It was one of the reasons that I encouraged the society to come and give it another go. So I'm pleased...

Earl Stonham WI

On behalf of the members of Earl Stonham WI can I thank all those involved with last night's superb meal, The food was excellent and the waitresses couldn't do enough for us. It was a great evening and I have had lots of people contact me today to say how much they enjoyed it. Please pass our thanks on to all concerned Happy Christmas to you all. Thanks again Lindsey Stone.

Don’s Diners

Dear Trevor, Again we were delighted to have enjoyed another excellent Charity Evening at the Golf Club this year.  As always, the food, the services and the arrangements generally were excellent and many who came expressed their thanks to us for arranging this evening at the golf club - long may it continue! Please pass on our thanks to all of the staff who looked after us on the evening.  Their help was really appreciated and was rewarded by us making a small presentation to everybody as an indication of our gratitude for the way we were looked after on the night. Our renewed thanks for your large contribution to a very successful evening. Yours sincerely, Mike Arbon (on behalf of Don's Diners)

Elmswell Open

Just wanted to say a huge thanks to everyone for making our day such a success. 30 golfers and 41 diners and everyone had a great time. The weather wasn’t the best but the course held up and there was no complaints from anyone about the conditions. We had a great meal and everyone was complimentary about the food and service. Thanks for arranging and please pass on our thanks to all involved. I will be in touch to sort out next year’s event. Hopefully we can get even more entries. Best wishes David
