Well has a sit at my office desk at the golf shop watching customers shopping for their last minute gifts and looking at of the window at the horrible weather, i have just been thinking of how quickly the last 9 months has Captain has passed. It's been such an special and enjoyable year for me and i am so thankful of the support of the members in every event that we have organised and more recently the Halloween, Bavarian and Children's Christmas party have been brilliant events to remember. Special thanks to the social committee for all their hard-work. I would also like to personally thank all my fellow board members for their efforts in ensuring that we take our golf club forward and keep improving the golf course and clubhouse for all to enjoy. This year the course has been presented beautifully and my thanks go out to Alan, Nigel, Nick and Dubai Dave for all their efforts. John, Steve and Teresa have had a very busy year keeping members and Guest's fed and watered and a Thank-you to them for their hard work during the season. Oh yes i nearly forgot, i must mention my Brother Phil who has made such a difference to the day to day running of the club with his enthusiasm, hard work and passion and most of all his personalty when dealing members and guests i think we have all benfited from him being in the role he loves. (giving me loads of jobs on a daily basis). So from me and my Family we would like to wish each and everyone of you a very Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New year and look forward to my last 3 months has your Captain, before i pass over the reigns to Mr Bob Walsh who im sure will be an excellent Captain for next season.
