Captain's Charity Race Night - Saturday 22nd July from 7pm

Our Men's Captain Mike Smith and Ladies' Captain Laura Key are hosting a Charity Race Night on Saturday 22nd July in aid for raising funds for local charity Freddie's Friends.

On the evening you will be able to bet on races with cold hard cash, and everyone has a chance of winning! It’s a fun packed lottery where everybody nobody has a competitive advantage. It’s fun for the complete racing beginner and expert alike and every race contains eight runners that you can choose from.

How does it work?

Before each race punters have a chance to bet. They can buy as many betting tickets as they want, the more tickets you buy per horse, the greater the share you'll receive if that horse wins!

Don't like to take risks? If you're a safe better you can bet on more than one horse to increase your chances of winning, but you're net profit won't be as much as you'll lose the bets on the horse(s) that don't win.

It is a non-profit event meaning that the ticket sales are there to cover the cost of the food and the race night equipment (any surplus goes to the charity), and a portion of the money from each race goes to the charity, while the rest is handed out to the winners!

Tickets cost just £5 including a finger buffet, so pop into the clubhouse now and get your name down for what promises to be a great night!

Pippa Russell wins Lady Captain's Day Trophy!

On Wednesday 17th August Lady Captain Laura Key hosting her Captain's Day, with a round of golf and a meal afterwards, followed by a prize presentation. Unfortunately not all of the lady members could make it due to being at work or on holiday, but with the sun shining the girls set out for an enjoyable day on the golf course, which they most certainly had!

Afterwards the chefs at Cafe Nineteen prepared some delicious chicken salads for everyone, and lady Captain Laura presented her home-made desserts; trifle and cupcakes. 

Once the girls were fed and watered Laura went on to present the prizes. In third with a score of nett 81 was Cath Sheppeck, second was Christine Wicks with 81 (back nine 36.5) and the best nett of the day was Ann Roberts with 77. The trophy was presented to the best gross of the day which went to Pippa Russell who scored 98!

Laura Key Completes 100 Holes for Charity!

On Saturday 25th June Lady Captain Laura Key took on the massive challenge of attempting 100 holes of golf in a day for the Captains' nominated charity, Cash for Kids.

The challenge involves walking around 24 miles around the golf course and playing exactly five rounds and 10 holes of golf. To do this she set off at 4:10am on hole 18, playing with Director of Golf (and husband) Alan Key. Devoted member, 82 year old John Dickins volunteered to be her caddie, and the three set off on their way.

Laura's aim was to average less than 1 hour 10 minutes per 9 holes of golf, and she set of in fantastic fashion, averaging less than 50 minutes per nine holes for the first few rounds putting herself way ahead of schedule! Laura had managed to complete 64 holes of golf by only 11am, at this point it was time for a lunch break. Also it was time to wave good bye to John, who we all agreed had done a sterling job of not only caddieing for Laura, but keeping up with her!

As Laura was so far ahead of schedule she had to wait two hours for her next playing partner to finish his round of golf in the club competition. Men's Captain Alan Mackinnon had scheduled with Laura to meet at 1pm, which seemed logical when planning the day out! Laura enjoyed a well earned break, although she could be heard exclaiming "I just want to get back out there!" as she was bouncing around in the clubhouse.

Once Alan finished his competition round they set off and continues along the journey, and the weather was just getting hotter and hotter as the sun shone brightly. On this round Laura was joined by some other members who were walking round the course in support, and they even dressed up a golf buggy, or booze buggy as it now became known! Local golfers from Hornsea GC, Leigh Gawley and Joe Palmer, who had completed a similar challenge recently came to egg Laura on in the penultimate round, a great show of support from two very good golfers!

After this round with the Men's Captain, last year's Men's Captain Andy Wilson joined Laura for the final jaunt. Showing no signs of tiring Laura cracked on with the golf, although this round took the longest due to more people supporting, and more booze! After a few cracks of thunder in the distance, Laura focused her attention to speeding through the last holes, and the challenge was complete by 7pm.

Course proprietor David Key let off two rockets as she walked down the last hole, and as she walked off the green Laura was congratulated by friends and family, and the champagne was popped. Celebratory drinks went into the night as they often do at Burstwick!

Laura would like to thank all of the friends, family, coworkers, members, non-members who came to support her on this momentous day, without you all Laura wouldn't have been able to raise over £1,000 for the Cash for Kids charity. Special mentions go to Sara Hewitson for dressing up the buggy, Tracey Stevenson for providing the food and prosecco, and of course John Dickins, who at 82 years old gave his all for 64 holes on Laura's bag.

Matthew McDonnell wins Junior Captain's Day

On Monday 30th May Junior Captain Harry Giles hosted his Captain's Day at the club, and the day went perfectly. Fourteen juniors turned up to play in the event which consisted of a nine-hole warmup and an 18 hole Stableford competition. Harry's parents put on a half-way house treat for the kids as they played, making sure they had enough energy to go on and complete the day.

The winner on the day with a fantastic score of 44 points off a 25 handicap was Matthew McDonnell, a great round from the youngster! In second and third were Jack Maxey and Lewis Hunt, who both shot very steady rounds in windy conditions.

Well done to all that played and congratulations to Harry on hosting a fantastic day.

Fantastic Turn Out for Captain's Drive In Despite Damp Weather

On Saturday we hosted our 2016 Captains' Drive In, where we welcomed in the new Captains for the year and said good bye to 2015's. Early on Saturday morning the rain came down and it came down hard, so much so that there was a point when the Drive In was nearly called off!

But the hardy members at Burstwick arrived at the club to support the Captains while they teed off at 8am, and then continued to enter the Texas Scramble throughout the morning. It was a testament to members' when 17 out of 19 teams played in such horrid conditions, because when the rain stopped at 1pm the wind followed with a vengeance!

After the competition the Captains laid on home-made beef stew for the players, cooked freshly by our chefs at Café Nineteen - just what the doctor ordered!

Once all the members were back in outgoing Men's Captain Andy Wilson thanked the members for a great year and introduced his replacement Alan Mackinnon, who explained what his intentions were for raising money for his nominated charity, Cash for Kids.

Alan Key finished off by thanking all of the 2015 Captains and members for their support, and finished by wishing the four 2016 Captains Alan Mackinnon, Laura Key, Peter Roberts (Seniors) and Harry Giles (Juniors) the very best for the coming year.

Laura Key wins Lady Captain's Day Trophy!

Lady Captain Christine Wicks hosted her Captain's Day on Wednesday 19th August and it was lovely weather for the girls playing golf. All dressed in pink the ladies set off at 10am to compete for the trophy which is awarded for best gross score on the day.

It was a tightly fought day and only one shot separated the top two players, Laura and Gina Key. In the end it was Laura who took the trophy and Gina a gracious second tied with the Captain herself. Well done to all the girls who played, here's to next year!

First Junior Captain's Day is a Massive Success!

Today we hosted our first ever Junior Captain's Day at Burstwick and it turned out to be a fantastic day for the next generation of golfers at Burstwick. Captain Lewis Hunt hosted a 27 hole event with a 9 hole Texas Scramble in the morning followed by lunch and an 18 hole Individual Stableford in the afternoon.

Lewis continued his fine form of late with his best ever round, shooting a one-under-par 69 gross to win the competition by three points, ahead of Harry Giles and Tom Ward on 40 points.

Well done to all the juniors that played and made it such a great day, let's make it even better next year!
