After 34 years of membership, I am both honoured and delighted to have been selected to be Stoke Rochford Golf Club Captain for 2016.
During this year I will be holding many events to raise funds for my charity, the British Heart Foundation, which I hope our members and visitors will support. The first event, Captains Drive-in, will be a shotgun team event on Sunday the 6th March.
On behalf of the members, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome those visiting our website and planning to play at our club during the coming year. We are very proud of our golf course, which has been dubbed the hidden gem of Lincolnshire golf. With its rolling, free-draining fairways, very challenging greens it presents a golfing challenge to players of all abilities. We also have a number of areas with wild orchids and Cringle Brook with its trout and crayfish, it really is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Alongside all this, there is a warm and friendly welcome from the staff in the clubhouse and our well respected Professionals, led by Angus Dow, ensure that all visitors will have a memorable time.
Finally, I hope all of our members have a fantastic golfing season, I wish our new Team Captains success in their respective leagues and look forward to seeing you all, both on the course and at our social events.
Club Captain 2016.
