Club Captain

Captain's Message 2023


It is a great honour and privilege to be the Club Captain of Crondon Park Golf Club for 2023.

I have been a member of Crondon Park Golf Club since it was opened in 1994 and served on the various committees for more than 10 years. I’m absolutely delighted to welcome David Laffar to the club as our new Head Professional and his team of John Bradford and Alex Milne. Together with our excellent Head Greenkeeper, Stewart Rogers and his ‘Greens’ staff I feel very confident that that Crondon will, with this structure in place, go from strength to strength and will be a club and course which all our members can be very proud of.

Our teams performed very well in 2022, winning both the Essex John Day and Essex Seniors team events and performing well in others. I wish all our teams every success in 2023 and I will do my best to support and attend as many matches as possible. I will, also, join in and play with many of our swindles and hope to get to know as many members as possible during 2023.

I’d like to congratulate Gerard Oates on becoming our Seniors Captain, although sadly we do not have a Ladies Captain for the very first time. I am, however, very much looking forward to working with Gerard and the Ladies Committee in all aspects of our club life to help bring the sections closer together in 2023.

I’m very pleased to announce that my Vice-Captain for 2023 will be Neil Mitchell. He is passionate about golf and has played in several of the Club’s teams as well in serving on the member’s committee for several years.

My chosen charity for 2023 is B.O.S.P. which stands for Brighter Opportunities for Special People. This is a local charity originally started in Billericay, but now working out of Wat Tyler Country Park. They are a small independent charity who for over 40 years has been supporting families and their children / young adults who have disabilities or life limiting conditions by providing high quality inclusive activities, respite care and family support.  I do hope, that with your support, you will help me to raise as much money as possible during 2023 for this very worthwhile charity

Finally, I would like to congratulate Steve Chettleburgh on a very successful year as Club Captain. He has been a great servant of the club doing so much behind the scenes which many members just don’t see. I just hope I can carry on his good work and do him proud this year.

It just remains for me to wish you all a very enjoyable golfing year at Crondon Park and I look forward to representing you as your Club Captain during the forthcoming year.
