Club Captain

Captain's Message 2024


It is a great honour and privilege to be the Club Captain of Crondon Park Golf Club for 2024.  I look forward to supporting the club, club management and the members over the next year.  My aim is to continue the great work that Martin Harris and the previous club captains have done.

I am taking over the captaincy at what I think is an exciting time as the Crondon Management team lead by Marlon Fox. Debbie Mead and David Laffar drive a very significant investment programme with the goal of providing the members with one if not best course in Essex.    While the work will cause some disruption, especially during the week, over the next year or so, I know they are looking to minimise the impact on the members as much as possible.   However as you know you can’t make an omelette without breaking some eggs, I ask all the members please be patient and support this programme as it is what we have been asking for for a number of years.

I’m pleased to announce that my Vice-Captain will be Bobby Veck.  It would be remiss of me not to remember Shane Cooley at this time who was originally due to become my Vice Captain but passed away earlier this year after a far too short battle against Cancer.   

I’d like to congratulate Kate Moss, Peter Haney and Abraham Lowe on becoming Ladies, Senior and Junior Captain respectively.  I look forward to working with them over the coming year.

This year Kate and I have decided to have a joint charity, Marie Curie,  I have chosen Marie Curie as my charity as they were a great support to me and my family in the past and would like to give a little back. 

I am keen to bring back the club atmosphere and I would ask the members to support the events that the club are planning on holding over the year.  On the golfing side I hope to restart the Social Wednesday evening golf in the summer,   

Finally, I would like to congratulate Martin Harris on an extremely successful year as Club Captain and making it such a hard act for me to follow.  I am not sure I can attend as many  club county matches as he did but I will get to as many as my work will allow.      

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