I am already into my fourth week of captaincy and cannot believe how quickly the time has flown.
My 'baptism' could not have gone any better. So far the weather has been on my side (Sorry Steve!) with the Captain's Farewell/Hello being played in Springtime weather whilst on my 'Drive in', it was positively barmy. Both events were strongly supported by members to which I am very grateful for.
Matches have already kicked in with good wins being recorded against Rothley Park (Away), the traditional season starter, and the men's Tasker Trophy team overwhelming Wollaton Park in the first round. Unfortunately, in the Daily Mail Foursomes, James Broderick and Simon Jackson lost in the second round to Ullesthorpe (No sour grapes but they were giving ten shots!!).
Numerous positive comments have been received from visiting Societies, Teams and Members about the excellent condition of the golf course and its presentation. I would add my thanks to Mark and his team and look forward to witnessing further improvements as we move into the warmer conditions.
