Dear WAG

RE: Cornish Golf Weekend: St Mellion / Launceston/ Woodbury Park 14-16 September 2001

Will the Latham Salver return from deepest South London, where it has rested for the second year running! What will happen at this Ryder Cup warm up, prior to the real one a week or so later!

We have made a provisional booking for 28 members and guests, on a similar basis to last year:

2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast with 1 round on the Old Course (stunningly beautiful), 1 round on the JACK NICKLAUS course (Stunningly difficult), 1 round at Woodbury Park Golf Course, near Exeter (unknown but recommended by Steve Stoner - help!), free use of motorised buggies. Night life included!

Cost approximately: 275 per person all inclusive. (excluding alcohol, bar lunches, golfballs, pool tables, gambling on Paul Harris, other optional extras.). Lodges are an option this year but will cost 20 more. Please let me know if you want one.

Launceston, on Friday 14 Sept. will also be extra but should be very reasonable. Anticipated start 12 noon. Warm up for the contest next day. It has been a while now since Wimbledon have beaten Richmond!

The Nicklaus tee off will be at 7 am (Rhod James please note!), allowing time for the free use of the superb St Mellion facilities afterwards. The Old Course start will be from 13.16. I shall be playing this year, barring no further injuries!

Woodbury Park is located a few miles east of Exeter. This will mean that the return drive to London will be approx 3 hours. A very fast train service from Exeter to London Paddington is also available. Tee off 11 am, on Sunday.

I know that Fred Berring has already asked for 50 deposit. If you want to come but have not paid, please send a cheque to Fred or myself by return. We have only received a few so far.

Act fast! Do not lose out! Send a cheque right away! We nearly filled up last year! I look forward to hearing from you

Kind regards
Yours sincerely
