I was so pleased when Jeff Purdy asked if I would become his Vice Captain and it is now time for me to carry out the privileged duties of being 2017 club captain.
My parents first brought me to Stoke Rochford 41 years ago when we still had cattle and barbed wire fencing around the greens. However I only got serious about golf 23 years ago when I joined.
Enough about me, on behalf of the members I would like to welcome any new members and visitors alike. I hope you enjoy our course as it can be very challenging; playing it certainly tests the average golfer. Being quite an open parkland course, not at all flat, it keeps you on your game.
My charity this year is Air Ambulance Lincs and all donations will be graciously received.
Come and join us with our first event, the Captain’s drive in. It will be held on Sunday 5th of March and will be a shotgun start. We hope to see you there.
Lastly along with the committee I look forward to meeting and greeting you throughout the year. Let’s have a great golfing season.
Club Captain 2017
I am pleased and honoured to be Lady Captain of Stoke Rochford Golf Club for 2017, it is a role I am undertaking for a second time, the first time was in 1991.
We are a small, friendly busy Ladies Section, playing competitions throughout the year; we have a roll up on Wednesday mornings meeting to play at 8.30am in the summer months and 9.30am in the winter months when all ladies are welcome.
We play matches during the golfing season, handicap and scratch leagues, friendly and mixed matches. These offer opportunity to play competitively and socially across Lincolnshire and neighbouring Counties.
We hold two Open competitions during the year, one in June and one in October.
We welcome new members, I would be happy to meet new lady members and those interested in joining to introduce them to the Ladies Section, the club and our picturesque course.
My chosen charity is Parkinson's UK which supports those who are affected by the disease, their families and carers in their day to day lives.
Finally, I hope that all members have a healthy and successful golfing year and that all those who play at Stoke Rochford Golf Club enjoy our scenic parkland course.
