30th August 2019
Dear Carol, Rosie, Nicky
Firstly - It was great day - Thank you to one and all for all their input - but particularly to Chloe and her team and Maddie and James. All those present were impressed with the venue, the catering and service.
Even those who found the play a little challenging were impressed by the course - although there were a few comments re the slow play caused by the amount of time looking for balls in the long grass.
Thank you all again for an excellent day

I would like to thank everyone involved at Bath Golf Club for making our experience so enjoyable yesterday. The course was in great shape and the attention given to us in the Clubhouse was excellent. It was noted how much attention to detail had been given to those ladies with special dietary requirements. All the ladies made comment on what a great day they had enjoyed.
Many thanks again.

I am writing to express gratitude from the SLCGA for all the work you and your ladies committee provided to the County at yesterday’s Bowmaker.
The assistance you gave enabled us to run a smooth and successful event.
Special thanks to the Robinson family, Samantha for organising and ensuring that all was in place before I arrived, Charlotte for selling so many raffle tickets:- I am delighted that the raffle raised £160+ which will be divided between your chosen charity and a donation to the County Junior Girls, and Andy who gave his whole morning to the starting duties in the pouring rain.
I look forward to Bath GC hosting the Ladies County Championship in 2021, subject to your Board’s approval, and know with such helpful ladies it will also be a success.
County Competition Secretary
"We had a great day by the way ,enjoyed the course and the welcome we had was fantastic"
"Thankyou so much I played last year and hardly seen any of the course due bad weather I would just like to say its a real credit to all involved at the club to the welcome bar staff and the green keepers"
"Just wanted to say what a great course you have and how good your open is. All the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming"
"Really enjoyed the day especially the steak !!!"
"Can I extend my thanks for another wonderful day. The course was in superb condition"
We thoroughly enjoyed our day at your club. Your professional was very welcoming and helpful, as were your bar/catering staff when we went for lunch after our round.
Your course like our own and many others has not had ideal conditions this summer in particular for the fairways. However your greens for the time of year were outstanding and a credit to your greens-staff.
We hope to return in the future to Bath and will definitely visit your lovely club.
All the best
On behalf of the SLCGA I would like to thank Bath Golf Club for hosting yesterdays combined finals of our County Inter Club Knock Out Competitions.
The day was a great success with lots of supporters for all competitors and is a format that we intend to replicate in future years.
Please thank your caterers as they provided an excellent spread of cakes for us all to enjoy after the matches conclusion.
County Competition Secretary
Thankyou so much for all the help you gave to make our competition such a success. I’ve had ‘thankyou' emails from pleased parents for the way it all ran smoothly.
As last year, you have a great team in place with everybody helping each other and making my job easier. Nothing seemed too much trouble so I would like to congratulate you all on your smooth operation.
The Pro on the day was wonderful having to go out several times to check the fog and with the green staff. They had the course in fabulous condition and it was much complimented by the parents (teenage players don’t say much).
Having said that, the winner, Caitlin Whitehead expressed herself well and thanked all the staff, including the catering, for all their hard work allowing the players to concentrate on their golf.
I too, include ALL the staff in my grateful thanks. Darren was very helpful and provided food quickly which was very important as we had to shorten the lunch time to about 25 minutes after the early fog delay. The Green staff had the course set up well with lost balls in the rough on 13 providing a serious challenge, but we need that to sort out the leaders from the rest.
All in all it was a very successful event and Bath Golf Club performed very well indeed.
Many thanks to everyone involved.
The reason for this note is to thank everyone at Bath Golf Club whose efforts contributed, so splendidly, to a marvellous setting for our last SCL match of the season against Glamorganshire
I would highlight:
1. your management team for their helpfulness and attention to detail prior to the event. Note: on the day, they were confronted by a significant unforeseen problem – which I’ll return to
2. your greens staff for the excellent condition of the course and the way it was presented – terrific!
3. your catering staff for providing what was required. The food itself was excellent and was provided with a cheerfulness that was appreciated by all
4. your members for allowing us the courtesy of tee times that worked perfectly
I know that I speak for all the SGU Seniors when I say just how fortunate (and therefore how appreciative) we are to have so much support for our home matches from the SGU’s affiliated clubs
Ms Perry, your team did a great job on 25/08/17
SGU Seniors’ Captain
Hi Nicky Perry,
I played a round with my old sparring partner Simon Calvert Jones a few weeks ago at the club and felt I should write and congratulate you on the state of the course and the general atmosphere in the club. I played the course regularly in the early 70’s before I went abroad. I have played on the odd occasion since but the course has never been in such great condition.
For the past many years I have played my golf at Valderrama which as you probably know is regularly rated #1 in Europe. I also have my own golf travel company catering to Americans coming to Europe and that takes me to some of the finest courses throughout the US and Europe. I think I set pretty high standards. My some in law was also with me that day who is a tournament director with the European golf tour who was also most impressed.
And best regards,
Thank you very much to the office for all the help you gave to make our Championship such a success.
Everything you said you would do happened like clockwork, from the club being opened, to the catering staff who were terrific, the preparation of the course, the pin position sheet, the code numbers,etc.etc.
You made my job extremely easy so please thank all the members of staff involved on my behalf as everyone did their job to the highest level.
Many of the competitors said how good the course was and although conditions were very windy, it did not detract from the excellent work that had gone into preparing the greens and "thro’ the green."
A job well done!
Many thanks again,
Please can you express our thanks to your staff who were most helpful at every stage of the day. The food was just right for the occasion.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was in superb condition and of course the weather perfect.
A Big Thank you
Our apologies for leaving early and not staying and having a drink with other parents and players and staying for the results .
We enjoyed every second of the competition because it was very well organised .
We are looking forward to your next one .
Junior Player and Parent
Just a quick note to say a big thank you for the way we were looked after on Thursday during your Seniors 4bbb.....our playing "partners" telephoned on the morning to back out and one of your senior members Michael [very sorry do not have the second name] very kindly played with us and marked the card. He was a perfect gentleman all day.
The weather was of course excellent and the course in good condition, also your staff in the clubhouse were attentive and efficient. Please pass our thanks to all concerned. W. Hannigan/R. Tippins
I wanted to write to say a huge thank you to you and your wonderful team and club members for hosting us for our trials afternoon. The club members made us feel so welcome and were truly outstanding volunteers. I have heard first hand from many of the guys and girls who wanted to pass on their thanks just what a great time everyone had (I am just sorry I could not join you all!).
Thank you once again for going above and beyond to ensure all those involved had the best possible experience.
I hope you and your volunteers enjoy trying to spot the UK Golf Team on the TV in September- hopefully you will recognise a couple of faces!
UK Team Invictus Games Project Manager
Help for Heroes
Just wanted to thank you once again for the great hospitality showed to us all on Thursday. I am very humbled you would do that for us. I certainly will visit the club if ever I am in Bath again.
On behalf of Somerset Ladies County Golf Association I would like to thank you and your staff for all the help given throughout the running of the 2016 Ladies County Championship.
Whatever we needed was provided whenever asked. The horrendous weather introduced some additional challenges for you but your team continued to smile which helped make the event so successful.
SLCGA Competitions Secretary
Breakfast business meeting here every Friday... great service & great breakfast!
Just a really quick line to thank and inform you about our visit to your golf club on Saturday afternoon. We were all impressed firstly with the honesty and your policy of reducing the fees because the greens were being treated. Also it was a nice touch when a gentleman introduced himself in the bar (I think as the Chairman ) and wished us a pleasant round and hoped we would enjoy our experience.
We certainly did, from the food to the course, although unfortunately we did not do it justice.
Once again thanks to all and hope to see you again.
On behalf of the league committee, district clubs and junior players please could you kindly pass on our thanks to other members of your management team, your committee and your membership. Please also pass on our thanks to your greenkeeping teams for their hard work in presenting your courses in wonderful condition for the events.
I just thought I'd write in praise of your greens. We played a Somerset Bowl match at Bath on Sunday. The greens were superb and easily the best that I've played on this summer, having visited more that two dozen courses, primarily in Somerset. Well done to the greenkeepers.
Just a wee note to thank you and the club for the good day I had playing in the Bath champs on Saturday,the course was in great condition,enjoyed the company of my playing partners and finally I would like you to pass on my regards to the green staff for the presentation of the course ,especially the greens.
Just to say a BIG "Thank you", for the great team effort which went into making last night such a good event.
Fiona, many thanks for all the background stuff you did to make sure we had a poster and tickets , printed menus and individual choices and name cards ...some people tried to work out the language of your novelty sheets but all we deduced on our table was that Stan can read (at least in English)... is much appreciated.
Gemma & Stuart, you did sterling work with your team working hard to ensure everybody had a fine meal, the starters were excellent and having the Antipasto meant we could all start at the same time... a logistical nightmare trying to get 100 starters to individuals ! The main course was much enjoyed and the choice of desserts just right...everybody was happy. Hannah, Emma and Charlie were very efficient and jolly, and the boys in the kitchen got it all out to us in good time. Thank you for joining in the sing song!
"On behalf of the Fidelius team I would like thank you and your staff for a great day. The course was superb, the food excellent and the opportunity to network with other sponsors was extremely useful. We will look forward to next year when hopefully we can raise our game and be amongst the prizes!"
Stan Frith, Fidelius Chairman
"The golf day we experienced was absolutely brilliant. The course was immaculate and the day itself was organised really well. A great day had by all the members in our team."
“A wonderful day at the Tee Sponsors Day on 6 June. The course was in excellent condition, particularly the greens, and the sun shone. The course is always subtly challenging and a delight to play.”
Simon Elliman and Graham Street, Withy King
I must compliment you on the professional running of your Easter Open. The ladies on the registration desk were friendly, welcoming and helpful, the course was in great nick and the whole day ran seamlessly and without a hitch. As club captain of Tewkesbury Park this year you have given me much insight into how an Open should be run and I will be feeding back the good practices I saw in operation to my competitions committee.
Club Captain, Tewkesbury Park Golf Club
I just wanted to say a quick “Thank you” for an absolutely fantastic day at Bath Golf Club yesterday. Not only did the course look great and play perfectly (good work Anthony and your team) but the organisation, provisions and general hospitality provided by you all was second to none. It was great to learn more about Fidelius and hear of the success that you’ve had, in addition to have had the opportunity to support such a fantastic charity. Despite leaving empty handed (wretched count-back system) I couldn’t have enjoyed the day more, so thank you all once again for working so hard to lay it all on. I very much look forward to seeing you all again in the future.
Very best wishes, Dominic Gibson, Director, GoActive Group
As a former Club Captain (twice) and now a Competitions Secretary I have organised many golfing events, competitions and Golf Days and I have to say, I thought the Fidelius Golf Day at Bath Golf Club was flawless. It is probably conceited of me but I pride myself on the Goughs Golf Day being one of the best Golf Days around but I came away from a brilliant day at Sham thinking I could learn a bit from yours. The meal was probably as good as I’ve had at any Golf Day!
Regards Martin Lang, Partner, Goughs Solicitors
A fabulous Golf Day for a great cause (Hope for Tomorrow). Well done to you all and to Bath Golf Club for a golf course that was in great condition and food and facilities that were all excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the day, as did our guests who all left with a very favourable impression of Fidelius, Bath Golf Club and the charity Hope for Tomorrow which it was all about, great job!
Chris Kane, Partner, Withy King
I would like to thank everyone at Bath Golf Club for making the Fidelius Golf Day such a great success. The course, food & beverage and organisation on the day were first class. Without exception our clients, guests and the Fidelius staff members in attendance all thoroughly enjoyed the day. More importantly, with your help we were able to raise a significant sum for our charity - Hope for Tomorrow.
Well done - we will most certainly be back next year.
With thanks. Jim Grant. Chief Executive, Fidelius Financial Holdings Ltd,
Despite it being very wet for anyone playing in the afternoon everyone said they thoroughly enjoyed themselves on a well organised day. A special thanks goes to, Gemma and Stuart Tucker, the Clubs newly appointed Steward and Stewardess, for looking after us so well and presenting a perfect buffet. In addition the golf course was in fine condition and a thanks must also go to Mark Anderton (Course Manager) and his team.
Roger McSweeney, Chairman, Bath Rotary Club
“One of the finest courses that have staged the RAF South West Regional Champs in a long time, great test of golf, superb greens and a very warm and welcoming clubhouse”
“A thoroughly enjoyable day from start to finish a superb welcoming by the Club Manager Anthony Roberts, a challenging well kept golf course and a truly fantastic meal in the evening, all in all a memorable experience despite the weather”
Chiltern Forest Seniors
Since becoming a sponsor, we have enjoyed many benefits from being associated with the Club - tee-box signage and participation in a superb sponsor's day event (entertainment, lunch and a golf golf tournament on the day). Also, we have held Board Meetings on site, enjoyed access to the membership as well as played regular golf, all as part of the package. The facilities and course are excellent. Several of our directors and staff have since joined the Club.
We are looking forward very much to our own Annual Golf Day later in the year when we will invite staff, clients and other guests to what will I am sure be a great day out.
