Welcome to my last newsletter as your Club Captain. Rather than say a long-winded goodbye I thought I would take the easy option and borrow some lines from the song made famous by Frank Sinatra.
And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain….
Regrets I’ve had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exception
Yes, there were times, I’m sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew
The record shows, I took the blows
But I did it my way……..
(My Way by Paul Anka)
Well that just about sums up my two years as your Club Captain. It was mainly a pleasure, and I thank you all for your support, both on and off the golf course. Your respective contributions to the nominated Captains charities have been extremely generous. The final amount raised for the Alzheimer’s Society is in excess of £2500. This sum is in addition to the £750 raised for the British Heart Foundation in 2021. Your contributions will, I’m sure, make a difference to those less fortunate than ourselves.
A big thanks to management, Mr & Mrs Lewis, for their continued investment, Josh, Russ and Andy for their help and support. Also, Mark and his team for continuing to work hard maintaining and improving the course to enhance our enjoyment of the sport we all love.
Looking forward, I sincerely hope members continue to support our club competitions, club teams, our Club Council, Hayley in the bar and of course our new Club Captain Don and Lady Captain Julie. It is only with your support and participation that our club can prosper; don’t let your immediate past captain down.
Your Captain has left the course….
