But, I’m a Hugger!

Jeff ClauseSanta Says

Take the necessary precautions, but don’t get negative…

This, too, SHALL pass! 

We, at St Francis Links, are OPEN for business, but with our eyes open, too! We are taking steps to ensure good hygiene, quality controls (as always) and will be monitoring the Virus constantly – just not on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. We will follow the advice of the WHO and that of our Health and Safety consultant. We want our staff to be safe, as well.

So, if you have travelled here from infected or potentially infected areas in the last 14 days, consider self-quarantine for you and your family. We have installed facilities at our back entrance for washing and have asked that all guests wash properly on arrival. But, I can’t go without a hug forever and it is simply not in my genes to stop living.

WHERE ELSE WOULD YOU RATHER BE THAN IN THE BEAUTIFUL VILLAGE AWAY FROM THE MADDENING CROWDS!

EVEN OUR FAIRWAYS ARE FAR APART

Before the cancellations – Moore had a blast!

Last week, we were delighted to host the annual Moore (*formally Moore Stephens) and their annual company workshop. The good week was capped off with a Master chef styled cookoff. I was asked to be a judge and Chef Jon led us through the process.

From Chef Jon…

“Some would say that cooking is stressful, I would say that cooking under pressure with limited resources in a confined area with 70 other people is even more stressful, but the Moore accounts teams that took part in the Master chef challenge recently with us rose to the challenge.

Even though they were armed with Google to research their 2 dishes with a mystery box of ingredients that would have made Gordon Ramsay scratch his head in confusion, they managed to produce some interesting

Food, I take my hat off to them all”


Chef’s table

“Hosting a chefs table within the kitchen is always the best way to show any guest what happens on the other side of the wall, the engine room paid special attention to our NSRI winning gusts last Friday and we had a lot of fun, fine dining flowed that night and the kitchen team showed what they can really do”


Rescheduled  for July 10 

 


Club Championships April 24-26, 2020 (still on!)


 

The 2020 Calendar and results

This year, we will be seeing more weddings, fewer golfing National events (due to rotation) and more member functions as our member play is the fastest-growing category in golf.
