Captain's Message 2020
It is a great privilege to become club captain here at Crondon Park. I have been a member here for the last ten years and have served on the committee for seven of those. I will try my best to join in and play with all the swindles and get to know as many members as possible. I will also be attending as many club team matches as possible to give my support to those members fortunate enough to have been chosen to represent Crondon Park. Hopefully this year we will have success across all sections in these competitions.
I would like to offer my congratulations to Georgina on becoming the ladies captain and to Chris the senior’s captain. I look forward to working with them both in bringing all of the sections closer together on all aspects within Crondon Park Golf Club.
My chosen charity is St Luke’s Hospice. This is a local charity that has personally helped me and my young family in a difficult time of need. St Luke’s Hospice provides palliative care and unconditional support for families of those affected by terminal illness. If I can, with your help raise some money for this worthwhile cause.
I am very pleased to announce my vice-captain, Steve Chettleburgh. For the last few years Steve has been the handicap secretary and will also carry on this role during his vice captaincy. Steve gives up a lot of his own time as well as all of the committee members do. I am sure with the support he will be given that he can carry out his duties in both roles.
We all now have a golf club which is really beginning to take shape and turn into something special, a course that people are going to want to play and be part of. With the personnel that are now in positions within the club I can only see the club moving even further forward than we are at present.
Finally, I would like to congratulate Stuart for the successful year he had as Club Captain. Hopefully I can carry this legacy on and make the members proud to have me as their Club Captain for 2020.
It just remains for me to wish you all a great golfing year.
