Calverley Golf Club Captain 2021

Dear Fellow Members, Friends & Visitors to Calverley Golf Club.

After the toils and tribulations of the last year and a bit, I hope that we can finally look forward to a less eventful period over the rest of my extended term as Captain of this fine, friendly club. We have faced several challenges and come through them, although we’ve lost some friends along the way and others have moved on to pastures new.
There are still obstacles to overcome during this period of recovery but I know that together we can move the club forwards. With support from the Club’s Owner, and grant funding from YUGC, we have developed and launched a recruitment drive to attract new members, backed by attractive membership rates for younger people, ladies and occasional golfers.

I shall continue to rely on the help of my Vice Captain, Richard Lonsdale, the Club Committee and Club staff in delivering a full calendar of competitions and events for our loyal members.

My best wishes for a successful year go to our section captains this year; Louise Ward – Ladies Captain, Alan Lister – Rabbit’s Captain and Matthew Harwood – Junior Captain.

Last year the club celebrated its 40th anniversary in which we managed to raise £2020, to provide sports equipment for the two primary schools in Calverley.
This year, I’ve decided that “charity begins at home”, so everything that we raise will be used to improve facilities at the club for members and visitors. Your support will be greatly appreciated and I hope that you will continue to be as generous as in previous years.

Finally, may I wish everyone at Calverley Golf Club a healthy and safe year ahead and I hope that 2021 will be a period of renewed friendships and good golf.
