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.
