Ladies Section
Captains Message
The Ladies Section remains a strong supportive part of the Club
with just under 100 members, 93 of them being active golfers
Our Section runs 4 teams, each team play against three other Clubs.
The Club provides funding for meals – team members pay match
fees to cover extras e.g. Transport, drinks, snacks. The Ladies Section
provide their own balls and clothing.
We are particularly proud of our Junior Girls, especially Ellie who has
represented Yorkshire & England and Hannah who is our Ladies Club
Champion.
Matches are played against the men’s section Rabbits, Seniors &
Tigers.
The Ladies also arrange some of the Club Mixed Competitions
The Ladies organise the Mixed Open Day and the Ladies Open Day with
the sum of £1,200 being given to the Club last year.
2012 was the centenary of the Ladies Section.

Goals Review
To continue to produce a golf course that is recognised for its quality & profile by its
Members, the County, Visiting Parties and members of other clubs within the
Yorkshire region
To deliver a course that is challenging to all ability golfers
Given the poor quality of some of the ground & soil on the course and in supporting
the point above the focus over forthcoming years will be firstly the playing areas and
secondly to re-design a number of the teeing areas to provide the differing levels of
challenges & also to allow golf traffic to be dispersed over a wider area
To positively encourage more Members to join the Club who are aged below 40
To provide a sustainable first class Clubhouse facility that encourages all Members of
the Club irrespective of age to enjoy the social side of the golf Club
To comply with all current and future legal and health & safety requirements
To regularly review contracts & costs and where ever possible for all maintenance to
be undertaken “in-house”, where specialist skills are required, procurement will be
via local preferred suppliers (preferably Members)
To ensure that the day to day running & fixed costs of the Club are supported by the
revenue generated from Playing Membership & Social Subscription Fees and that
this is spread appropriately across all Membership categories
To work to a three year rolling financial plan

Green Update
Nominated for consideration in Golf World’s Top 100 Courses in
GB&I for 2014
The Club recognised that due to the exceptional rain fall seen last
summer grass grew in places where it had not for decades and
the existing grass thickened and grew vigorously – steps were
taken once ground conditions permitted to cut back grass &
carries.
The Club undertakes this year to keep the Course playable for all
abilities of golfer.
Green Update Cont.
Irrigation system – caught up with the maintenance of the
mains pipe line over the winter
Tree Management – extensive tree management has taken
place over the winter to 1) Aid playability, 2) Machine Access,
3) Allow more light & air through
Bunker – 18th Fairway Bunker at driving length and the first
bunker on approach to the 18th green currently hold standing
water – small draining programme to take place
Clubhouse roof draining – review underway to move excess
water away from 18th green and apron
Work must start on the water recycling area – we will do as
much in-house as possible
Health & Safety Update
No RIDDOR accidents, 5 accident reports completed in last
12 months (all through general play)
To date less than £1,000 spent on Health & Safety Matters
during this financial year
Updated all task Risk Assessments for the Green Staff –
specific training is ongoing during the winter period
e.g. Chain Saw / Working from heights
Completed a full Course Risk Assessment – this has
highlighted a couple of small areas where further
works are required e.g. Enhanced signage
Health & Safety Update Cont.
Further work will be required dependent on the future
occupants on the land adjacent to the 3rd hole
Interim H & S inspection by Selby Council –
Course Risk Assessment enhanced to reflect the fact that
the bushes to the right of the tee area should be
left to grow naturally on the 13th hole and the 3rd hole.
Full H & S inspection by Selby District Council due
October / November 2013

Club Finances 2012/2013
Our Aims for 2012/2013 were
•To ensure the Club is operating on a sound financial basis
•To increase the Club’s cash reserves in the knowledge that
there would be a number of unavoidable large capital
expenditure programmes in 2013/2014
•Improve communication with Members by publishing a regular
Finance Newsletter giving details of current & planned projects
and expenditure
In order to increase our cash reserves we have: •Scrutinised the budget in great detail and made savings where
possible
•Commenced a programme of reviewing all contracts
throughout the Club
•Maintained a firm hand on the purse strings by working to a
detailed budget and a monthly cash flow
20
Club Finances 2012/2013 Cont.
General Savings
•Team Expenses were reduced from £8,600 to £5,600
•Diary costs have been reduced from £3,000 to £1,650 and are
virtually self financing
These are just 2 of the many small savings made over the year
which have contributed to us achieving a surplus.
Course Savings
•Fertiliser for winter dressing was cancelled saving £8,000. This
was done by agreement with Gordon.
•The acquisition of 2 greens machines( a mower and a rough
cutter) has been deferred until this month.
21
Club Finances 2012/2013 Cont.
Contract Savings
•We have managed to negotiate an excellent deal with BT
which will save £2,000 p.a. This will not only give us an
enhanced service but also provide us with the ability to install
an EPOS machine for the bar which will facilitate Members
topping up their bar cards with a debit card. This will also have
an effect in reducing banking charges. Our cash handling costs
currently stand at 60p per £100 and we bank in excess of
£150,000 of cash per year – costing over £900.
•In 2011/2012 the Club carried out work on the Fire and
Security Alarms and as a result of this reduced our insurance
costs last year by nearly £2,000
•The Club is currently reviewing its cleaning requirements and
costs for 2013/2014.
22
Club Finances 2012/2013 Cont.
Non Budgeted Expenditure
We have been very fortunate this year to have had only one
item of non-budgeted expenditure which was the Andrews
Water Heater at a cost of £3,000 which had to be replaced as it
provided water for the kitchen and ladies showers and 19th bar.
The Budget 2012/2013
Financially this has been an excellent year for our Club. We have
worked within our revised budget of 607 Members. Our green
fees income is approximately £7000 less than we had
anticipated but despite this we have managed to achieve our
aim of a surplus income and this will provide funding for the
provision of a wash down area for our machinery (a legal
requirement) and will spearhead the development of an
economically viable and sustainable Course and Clubhouse.
23
Clubhouse 2013/2014
As you probably know we have a clubhouse that needs some
substantial repairs and we think it is in all our interests to
improve the situation and we intend to install a bio-mass
boiler. Currently we spend in excess of £20,000 per year on
heating oil which a new bio- mass boiler will halve.
We have already undertaken an energy review which has
highlighted a number of improvements.
The roof is in desperate need of repair and we estimate this
could cost in excess of £20,000.
The boiler and associated infrastructure will cost approximately
£120,000. It will be financed by a ten year bank loan and this
year will cost £16,500 including the deposit, arrangement fee
and 2 quarterly payments.
24
Clubhouse 2013/2014 Cont.
On the plus side, however, quarterly , the Club will receive a
Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments from the government
of totalling approximately £15,000 in the first year. This will
continue for 20 years and together with the fuel savings I have
already spoken about will result in substantial savings.
The reason for the urgency is that the Renewable Heat Incentive
Payments will be reduced by the Government when the take up
has reached 50%. We understand the take up currently stands at
25% and it is estimated that we have a 3 month window to gain
the maximum benefit.
