Good day members and friends of CMGC, I hope you all liked our additional newsletter that hit your inboxes on Tuesday! Unfortunately Titleist are not releasing a humming golf ball, the greens won't be cut by pedal power and the third on Badgers Sett will not have the green relocated in the field! I hope they all gave you a laugh on April Fool's Day!
It has been a great week for golf with the course continuing to improve, with the clocks now changed summer is coming! A big shout out to Andy Johnson and his handicap team as they made a winning start to their season beating Churchill and Blakedown 3.5 - 2.5. A big congratulations to Neil Bryden, Nick Webb and Brain L Payne who were the top three in the March Stableford. This means the top three will join Phil Moore in a Worcestershire pro-am to take place later in the year.
Membership Drive Huge Success
Just a quick message to thank everyone for their support on the £120 3 month membership drive. We ended up with 32 new members off the back of this, hopefully everyone will get into the CMGC club life and sign on for the full year in July. It would be awesome if all the existing Cleobury members make the new ones welcome.

Lodge Development Update.
The phone is red hot with calls about the lodge development, last week we sent out 20 brochures to people enquiring about them. The new website is now up and running www.cleoburycountrylodges.com and we hope to sell the next plot very shortly. If you have any questions or would like to request a brochure please get in touch click here.
Have a great golfing week! Dave, Matt and the CMGC Team
