Think Of Others Charity Golf Day
Well, what can I say? A lot of stress on Friday morning due to the weather but thankfully we had a plan and it worked very well.
A big thank you to all the golf club staff from grounds staff, shop staff, catering staff and of course yourself. Before the day I had the usual professional support and on the day, from the call to the club early on and through all of the weather related discussions, everyone offered advice and support for the day. Nothing was too much trouble.
It all turned out well and all teams turned up and despite a littler rain everyone commented very positively about the day, the course and the club.
We raised £1500 for Henry Bowers and Ombersley Golf Club played a hugh part in making it happen,
regards, Mark Searl

Ombersley Golf Club continues to impress everyone with its course and its great hospitality.

The club shop more than helpful putting out the markers as requested.
Everyone had a good day and we will return to play the course again very soon.

I am pleased to say we had a most enjoyable and successful day and we were well looked after by all of the staff.
As a Silver member at Ombersley who plays many other courses in the Midlands I have to say that the welcome and the friendly atmosphere at the club is second to none and we will no doubt have future society days at Ombersley in the future
Mark Searle October 2014
..I just wanted to drop you a few lines to thank all the people at Ombersley Golf Club for making it such a great place to play golf.
..I've held my usual golf days at Ombersley for my Charity and for Kidderminster Harriers and on both occasions we had successful golf days thanks to your support from the team at Ombersley Golf Club.
The course has again been in great condition and a joy to play on whilst the clubhouse is always welcoming. Being a real ale fan I have to congratulate Rob(the catering manager)on his work and we hope to support more events.
Many thanks for everything Graham and a big well done to the team..
Paul Baker, Senior Captain, Burghill Valley Golf Club September 2014
A very big thank you to everyone at Ombersley Golf Club for my "away day" this week. You could not have been more helpful throughout and the feed back I have had from everyone was excellent.
Jeff Samlet, September 2014
First let me thank you for taking such a late booking. From the moment we arrived until our departure the service was 10 out of 10.
If it were not for the fact that Swansea is over 2 hours away we would be regular visitors, but we will spread the word that Ombersley GC is superb value for money and is a must to visit if you are touring the area or looking for a golf break.
Thank you to everyone.
Paul Battle, Longbridge Old Gits G.S.(LOGGS) 27th August 2014
On behalf of all the LOGGERS just a line to thank you and your staff for the opportunity and hospitality you afforded us yesterday.
A fabulous day was enjoyed by all. Please convey our sincere thanks to the catering staff, greenkeepers and staff in the Professonal's shop. Everybody was so helpful and made our day so enjoyable. Days like this can be very stressful for the organiser, but your thoroughness and commitment ensured our day was very successful and a joy.
As you will realise, most LOGGERS are Seniors and very much apprecisated your generosity in creating the excellent value for money the day provided.
Best wishes to all and we would like to return for another great day.
Mo McDermott,Dudley Lady Captain's Away Day 8th August 2014
Thank you on behalf of the Dudley Ladies for a really enjoyable Away Day.
This was a re-run of our successful visit in July 2013 and we were all very pleased to return. We truly appreciated the warm welcome we received from everyone - members and staff- the bacon baps and the evening meal. Even the weather played its part in ensuring a good days golf. The course was in excellent condition and a pleasure to play. Everyone was so helpful and I am sure that your organisational skills played no small part in ensuring that things went so smoothly.
Once again, many thanks, and we hope to visit again.
Paul Yarnell, Worcestershire Mark Masonic Golf Society 17th July 2014
I'm writing to thank all of your staff for the help and support in making our society day run so smoothly. The feedback from golfers concerning the course, set up & facilites and the diners with regard to the food and service was extremely positive.
We look forward to our next society day in 2015 and will be in touch to arrange the date
Joan Woodhams, Gaudet Luce Ladies Away Day July 2014
I know I thanked you for all your help yesterday but could you pass on our thanks to the green keepers - your course looks and plays wonderfully, the bar & catering staff for their assistance and the excellent food and of course the shop staff.
All the ladies thoroughly enjoyed themselves and I am sure quite a few will be returning,
John Cutler July 2014
Dave and I played as usual on friday morning ( Roger and Simon were not available )
Just wanted to pass a message to Andrew (your Course Manager) about the beautiful state of the course including the "poppy" area near the 2nd tee.We met Andrew on the course in the winter and talked about the success of the wild flower areas and he said he was going to try poppies for the 100 years WWI
As ordinary players ( very ordinary some would say) we really appreciate the condition of the course which really adds to our enjoyment of playing at Ombersley
Barry Adams,Harborne Royal British Legion June 2014
My sincere thanks and that of my members for another excellent golf day at Ombersley GC 1st June 2014.
We didn’t think you could top our last tour in May of last year after the floods but please pass on our thanks to all involved for a great day.
The ever improving facilities year on year are well noted around the club house and the course. We arrived whilst a junior lesson was going on, how great it was to see the youngsters and their parents enjoying the professional facilities (things you don’t see at stuffy old members clubs) the youngsters are the future of this great game and must be encouraged, well done.
The course as usual superb, We have played 4 local Worcester courses this week that have sadly not compared as well. They have been unable to cope this the sudden good weather and the recent growth spurt. What a pleasure to play today, the greens responding great to a well struck shot and rolling true, the fairways gave us all a chance to reach in two.
Great hospitality in the clubhouse as usual with good food and service.
By far the best spring fixture we have.
We will return as often as possible.
Sincerely, Barry Adams, Chairman
Hanbury Hill Baptist Church Golf Day June 2014
Please thank all of the staff at Ombersley Golf Club for making our fourteenth golf day with you a real success.
Yesterdays downpour had us really concerned, but what a wonderful afternoon it turned out to be, matched only by the great facilities, warm welcome and support everyone gives us.
Again we had a very successful day, everyone enjoyed themselves and we hope to see you all next year.
yours sincerely, Stewart & Harry
Worcester Lions Club Charity Golf Day 2014
Please accept our thanks for the tremendous day at Ombersley hosted by you and your team. We could not have wished for better service and attention.
Would you please pass on our thanks to thr green keepers who put out all our signs around the beautiful presented course. Also to your catering team who looked after our every need in a helpful and pleasant manner. Finally to your team that did an excellent job in scoring our team cards and making our life a lot easier.
The event raised £1800 for West Midlands Search & Rescue.
We will be contacting you soon to book next years event.
yours sincerely, Neil & Kath Smith (Organisers)
Express and Star Golf Society March 2014
Just a short note to say how much the Express and Star Golf Society members enjoyed their visit to Ombersley last Friday. The course was in excellent condition, the greens like lightning, and the meal afterwards of the high standard we have come to expect of your club. Our thanks, too, to the staff in the shop and the kitchen and serving staff who looked after us so well. It's always a great start to our season by first coming to Ombersley. Mark us down for 2015 - we'll definitely be back! Regards, Brian Clifford (Society Secretary).
Having taken up the offer of a free lesson with Head Professional Graham Glenister I found that learning to play golf wasn't as difficult as I had thought. I was smitten and booked a series of lessons, backed up with plenty of practice.
But hat was only half the story, as surrounding the game is a team of people all giving a very warm and friendly welcome.
Ombersley is definitely more than just a golf club and I can recommend the hearty breakfast as well as the clubhouse being an ideal place to meet over coffee with friends.
Our next family party will definitely be at Ombersley Golf Club.
Baxter College July 2013
I would just like to say a big ‘Thank You’ for last night. Baxter College had booked a venue in Hartlebury but they let us down 2 days before the treasure hunt, your restaurant manager Rob was able to accommodate us at last minute seating over 40 people for evening meal.
The feedback from staff was unanimous, the food was outstanding as was the venue. They have also agreed that they would like to end up there next year, no matter where the treasure hunt takes them.
Please pass our thanks on to Rob and I am sure we will be in touch for future bookings.
Best Wishes, Helen Hawkins
Arscott Ladies June 2013
...We would like to thank all those concerned who helped to make a perfect day. We thoroughly enjoyed the course, the food and the friendly wlecome you gave us. Sunshine, couple with a gentle breeze helped to make a very special Away Day indeed. Thank you to all concerned.
Harry Harris(golf day organiser)17th June 2013
On behalf of our Church, all the players, Stewart & myself, please pass on to all the staff at Ombersley Golf Club for making our thirteenth golf day a real success. We really appreciate the warm welcome and support you and everyone gives us.
Again we had a very successful day and everyone enjoyed themselves, even the weather was kind to us despite the forecast.
Matt Mason Tesimonial Golf Day
Apologies for the time it has taken me to write this note, but time has been very precious since our golf day with you.
I just wanted to thank you and your team for what ended up being a brilliant golf day for Matt. It was incredible that we were on in the first place. Having had the deluge of rain in the previous 2 days, I would imagine there weren't too many courses in the country open on the day of the event.
Well, it was open, and it played remarkably. Our teams were amazed with how well it played. I can't wait now to play it when we have had some decent weather. The greens were excellent and the fairways lush. Your staff were friendly and accommodating throughout the day. The food was great and your members were very welcoming. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others for corporate or charity golf days, top class from start of the organisation with yourself, to the end product on the day.
Many thanks once again and all the best for the future.
N.Bury (Golf society secretary)
A note to thank you and all your staff so much for looking after us so well last Thursday.
We had a very enjoyable round on a lovely course, and were extremely lucky with the weather with only one shower at the end of our round.
To finish the day we enjoyed a very good meal. Thank you very much.
A.Allen (Ladies Captain)
Thank you very much for such an enjoyable day yesterday. Our ladies were much impressed with your course – and the condition of it in spite of the recent weather, also the service we received was excellent.
I must say personal thanks to Pam who has been so helpful at the other end of the phone and when I visited beforehand with my queries.
F & I Horwood (Severnside Ramblers)
We are writing to express our thanks for the way in which you organised the evening for the Severnside Ramblers on Friday Sepptember 28th. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal and the responses from the members we spoke to were extremely positive. It was pleasing to be able to offer our members a varied menu which was subsequently served politely and efficiently.
Please pass on our thanks to everyone who was involved with making our celebration evening a success.
J & S Atkinson (Wedding reception)
Just a little note to “thankyou” so much for the lovely food & services you gave to us on our wedding day. Everyone said how great you were and we felt nothing was too much trouble. You were all very obliging. We will hope to see you all again for a meal.
I’m writing on behalf of the Boldmere Ladies Golf Club to thank you very much for arranging our away day at Ombersley on Thursday.
I didn’t see you afterwards to say how much we had enjoyed the day and I don’t think the staff were within earshot when I praised them in my few words after the meal.
We enjoyed the course, the meal was excellent (our compliments to the chefs!) and we were looked after with wonderful attention by all the staff – what more could we have wanted?
We all enjoyed a very happy day and all the ladies were most appreciative. Many thanks.
J.Warr (Golf society secretary)
I must write and thank you and your colleagues at Ombersley Golf Club for the wonderful society day held on 14th September. All the members of the society and their guests thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the day from the time of arrival to their departure.
Special thanks must go to you for your help and advice in organising the day, but mention must also be made of the catering staff that did so much to make the day so worthwhile.
Comments were made about the condition of the course so we must not leave out the ground staff for the efforts they made to present the course in tip-top condition.
I have been asked whether the society can come back to Ombersley at a later date as everyone enjoyed it so much Once again, many thanks for your help.
M.Stokes (Golf league organiser)
First and foremost we would like to thank you for the very professional organisation which was apparent at every stage of our first visit to your club. Staff were warm and friendly and welcoming wherever we went. We certainly hope to return again.
P.Pomeroy (Golf day organiser)
Just a quick not to say thank you for all your help and assistance when we were at the golf club on Saturday last.
On behalf of all my friends I can say without reservation that we thoroughly enjoyed the day; both on the course and the excellent meal afterwards. This was due in no small way to the welcome you extended us and the friendly way in which were treated.
I know that I have become used to such first class treatment as a gold member, but all my friends, some of whom had never been to Ombersley before, were very impressed. Between us we have played golf all over the world and, without exaggerating, many said that Saturday was right up there among the best for them. A most enjoyable day all round!
Would you also please pass this note on to Rob and his staff in the restaurant, as the same comments very much apply.
