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

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

Jones Birthday Lunch

Hi Honor, Just back to work after a hectic weekend.  A big thank you for looking after us at the weekend, providing an excellent venue and meal at very short notice.  The consensus was that the food was exceptional, and we all had a good time. If ever you need a reference for a future potential client, please ask! Best regards, David & Debbie

Witchford GS

Nicola, Please pass on our gratitude to all the staff at Stowmarket.   Everyone had an excellent time today, and I have been pressurized into keeping your course on our list for future years.    Everything worked at treat, from the Pro Shop ensuring the buggy was ready and the spot prize markers were in place, the course was in very good condition with lots of variety in the different holes, I am still trying to work out why you are on preferred lies.   However, the catering surpassed even the course, the food was a delight and the staff who served us were fantastic, just what we needed after a hard days golf. Many thanks. Bob

East Anglian Chemists Golf Day

Hi Nicola, Just a short note to say thank you for your hospitality and warm welcome yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. The course was in great condition, even if my golf wasn’t! The food was lovely - you’ve struck gold with your recently appointed chef.  Please convey my gratitude to Chris and his catering team. You may already know that Norman, my opposite number from the Suffolk Medical Golfing Society, has already booked next year’s fixture for May 9th.  I look forward to playing the course again although we shouldn’t really wish for time to pass too quickly. Thanks again and have a nice weekend. Best wishes, Roger
