Lady Captain's Drive In 2018

I would like to thank the ladies for their help on the registration table and also for the organising of the raffle.  Thanks to Sue Worrall, Val Couturier, Sue Dunne, Sue Hulme, Pam Oatley, Jen Triggs, Gaynor Holden, and Pat Froude.   

Thank you to everyone for their support and generosity on the day and for kindly donating raffle prizes. Thank you to Karen Green who prepared and organised the draw for my Drive In. I feel that everything was a huge success and even the weather held up for us!   

Thank you to the men's section who helped and supported us led by Captain Dave Massey and Vice Captain Ian Jackson. Thanks also to the support and help from Richard, Tim and Joan. 

Thanks to Amy, Jim and James who sorted out the tables and produced a lovely buffet for us! Thank you for the help and support from my Vice Captain Pam.

There are some wonderful photos of all the groups on Facebook. A day I will never forget! We raised over £600 for my charity Autism Together.

I really look forward to the year ahead, making more great memories!

Thank you again.

Your Lady Captain,


Captain's Blog 2018 - Introducing The New Captain


It is an honour and a privilege to be Pryors Hayes Golf Club Captain for 2018.

My year started at the AGM on 16th March, followed by my Drive In on 17th March.

I wanted to create a memorable Drive In and I think that I definitely achieved that with the weather conditions, high winds, snow blizzards and a wind chill factor of -6.

It was however a day that didn’t deter you hardened golfers who supported my drive in remarkably and you managed to raise £1,313.00 on the day which was truly overwhelming and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank a few people for their support on the day.

My Vice Captain Ian Jackson, Sue & Fred Worrall, Adam Gaze, Sue Dunne & Pam Oatley.

Not forgetting my Wife Sharon, Daughter Hannah & Son Tom.

And of course to you, the members who braved the conditions.

My chosen charity for this year is The Joshua Tree, a charity that supports families affected by childhood cancer.

They are a local charity based in Northwich and can be found here.

You can also follow them on Facebook, where you can find lots of events and activities that we can all support or take part in.

Future events for this year are:

- Captain's Charity Day - 9th June

- Captain’s Away Day - 8th / 9th July at Formby Hall Golf Club


There are still places available subject to sharing a twin room.

See noticeboard in the Clubhouse for details.

Once again thank you for your support and long may it continue.

Here’s to better weather, better golf and a great year at Pryors Hayes Golf Club.

Kind Regards,

Dave Massey

My Season so far - 2

Dear Members

Since my last post, In June we held my charity day, and again the support on the day was truly overwhelming, with almost £3000 being raised for my charity the Battle Back Golf Program, I would like to thank my Vice Captain Dave Massey, Past Captain John Oatley, Fred and Sue Worrall, Pam Oatley, Jenny Triggs, Karen Jones [My big sister] and of course my wife Sue for all their help on the day, but most of all, you the members for your outstanding generosity in donations and purchases in the auction items, you are all amazing.

 The Captains Charity day raised an incredible £3,000

Also in June we had my Captains away days at Telford GC with some 48 members and guests, the golf course was in fantastic condition although the greens were a little tricky for some, not for me I must say. The hotel and food was superb.

A great time was had by all and yet again over the 2 days your generosity with the fines and donations raised an outstanding £490 this really was a weekend to remember for me and I will treasure the memories forever. A big thank you to Jon Briggs for organising the “Briggsy Fiddle” you're a star!

Thank you one and all for a great time.

Recently we held the Club Championship, played over 2 days to determine a gross and net winner. A great turn out on the 2nd day with players and members greeting the final game in.

A huge congratulations to Jack Craven on winning the gross with a gross 148 over the 2 days.

It was nice to see young Jack winning the championship as he has been at Pryors since his junior years and come close on a number of occasions in taking the title, proving that hard work and practice pays off, again WELL PLAYED JACK Truly deserved.

Also congratulations to Rick Smith on winning the net championship with great score of 132 net over the 2 days.

It would be very remiss of me not to mention the condition of the course, it was in fantastic condition with the new 1st green being played for the first time in competition.

Andy and his team deserve all the credit for the work they are doing.


The West Cheshire League games since my last blog have been a somewhat mixed bag of results, losing heavily away at Antrobus GC 6-1 and then bouncing back with 5-2 home win against Antrobus GC, the home win has made the final 2 games all to play for in the league with only 3 pts separating 1st and 4th place, so all to play for, I’m sure we can pull it off with 2 victories.😌

I would like to congratulate all winners so far this season with some great scoring, well played all.

The next big occasion is the Battle Back Charity day on July 19th - this is your chance to play amongst true hero’s - places are still available, please contact myself, John Oatley or the shop for availability.

Thank you for reading and good luck to you all in the rest of the golfing season.

See you on the fairways or in the bar.
