Bury Abbey Rotary Charity Golf Day Friday 16th June

Firstly I must thank you for the event you presented for us at Stowmarket GC yesterday. The catering and your support were excellent and everyone commented on the great condition of the course.  First class! Thank you again for providing us with such a perfect platform to run our Golf Day and raise money for SARS, who I know are extremely grateful. Please do thank all the staff for their input. Kind regards, Nic Hardy, Bury Abbey Rotary

Lions Golf Day

Dear Trevor, Stacy, Jon and Team, On behalf of Stowmarket and District Lions I would like to thank you for your help and support in hosting this year's Lions Golf Day. Your assistance was perfect, the course was in tip top condition, the food was excellent, and you even organised the weather for us, well done. I am very happy with how the day went and with one or two minor adjustments I think we can go from strength to strength for next year's event which I have penciled in with you as May 10th 2024. Kind regards Bob Cuff Vice President Stowmarket and District Lions

Suffolk Junior Championships

Dear Alan, I am writing on behalf of the Suffolk Golf Union Junior Committee to thank Stowmarket Golf Club for hosting the joint 2023 Suffolk Junior Championships for boys and girls. The course was in excellent condition and provided a good, fair challenge for the golfers and I am certain that they all enjoyed playing the course.  The fact that we had 50 players taking part shows how popular it was with the players to have the opportunity to play there.  The fact that three of the first four places in the 18-hole Stableford competition were taken by Stowmarket juniors shows that junior golf must be thriving at your club, which is a great thing for the county. Sincere thanks to you, Kenton and the ladies Captain for welcoming us on our early arrival and for the assistance provided throughout the day.  Your contribution helped to ensure that the day ran smoothly, without a hitch. Please pass on my thanks to everyone involved in making our championships a great success,...

Don’s Diners

Dear Trevor, Just a brief note to extend my thanks to you and the catering team for providing our Christmas Lunch. It proved to be a very successful event. Throughout the lunch we enjoyed a warm welcome, good food and friendly and efficient service from all involved. I would be grateful if you would pass my thanks to all those who played their part in making our lunch such an enjoyable occasion. During the lunch we collected donations for the Stowmarket Food Bank which amounted to £160, which I have today dropped off at the Food Bank Centre. Regards, Gerry Thompson

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.

Alick Mulhall

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
