Throughout our 125th year the Club Captain and Vice Captain together with the Ladies' Captain and Vice Captain will carry out a challenge every month. The challenges are a mixture of golf and non-golf related items and involve members as well as engaging with the wider community. Our schedule is attached below and we welcome every member's participation.
Spring bulbs. Create our logo by planting Spring bulbs in the shape of '125' in a raised flower planter. This will be followed later in the season by bedding plants.
Showcase our beautiful golf course. Prepare a slideshow of 25 slides, displayed for 5 seconds each, showcasing the best photographs of our beautiful course.
Say it with grace! Prepare an entertaining grace in exactly 125 words for use at 125 celebration events.
Putting. 125 putts of 125cm between the Captains and Vice Captains. Club members will be invited to see if they can beat our average conversion rate over 5 putts.
Coffee morning. A chance for specific groups in Wheathampstead, dog walkers and ramblers on the course to join us for coffee and find out what Mid Herts is all about.
Cup cakes. The Captains will bake and sell 125 cakes on a Tuesday with proceeds going to the Captains' charities.
Cycle ride. A cycle ride of 125 miles for charity, led by David and Beth Hartley, but with opportunities for members to participate.
125cm hole. A 'Nearest the Pin' challenge on the 12th for nominal entry fee or donation with proceeds to the Captains' charities.
Local school engagement. We will invite village school Y6 pupils to visit for morning tea, golf putting and chipping challenges.
125 shots. The Captains will alternately play one ball and see how far we reach after 125 shots. Members may win a prize by guessing our finishing point for £1 donation, with proceeds to the Captains' charities.
String competition. A members challenge! Each team of three or four players has 12.5m or 125 feet of string. They can move their ball without penalty by cutting off a piece of string equal to the distance moved, until they have none left.
125 Quiz. A '125' themed quiz evening, coupled with a draw night.
Indoor games. Join the Captains for an afternoon of indoor games in the clubhouse.
