Welcome from our new Club Captain….

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

I’m Danny Simmonds your new Club Captain for 2015. I only joined the Club in 2013 so feel very privileged to have risen to be your Captain in such a short period of time. I started playing golf about ten years ago and have enjoyed it immensely. I have been a member of Grim’s Dyke and a Captain at Oxhey Park in my time, so I hope to bring some of what I’ve learned to the role.

I would like to thank our 2014 Captain Stefan for making me his vice, and making this year as Captain possible. It looks like I’ve a big pair of shoes to fill as there have been many successful previous Captains, but I’m sure I can turn to them when I need some extra advice. Helping me this year will be my Vice Captain, Graham Farmer. I feel quite lucky to have got him, I am sure he will make a great Captain for 2016. I want to wish Ann Loughman, the 2015 Ladies Captain, all the best for her year guiding the ladies through it. Also I would like to thank the Tuesday club, Ricky regulars and the weekend mob for making my playing time very enjoyable, I have certainly played with a few characters.

My Charity this year will be in aid of Cancer Research. Having had Hodgkin’s lymphoma myself and have gone through chemotherapy and radio therapy, it’s close to my heart. I know first hand how this effects people’s lives and their families. Some of our own members have gone through this and how concerned for them we were, and I’m sure we all know someone who has had cancer. So I’m sure you will support my charity and my Captains day, which will be on the 7th of June. There will be a B.B.Q and prizes for both members and guests.

I hope to see you all out on the course and enjoying yourselves, I would also like to ask for everyone’s help in the club matches – please see where you can play and sign up in the locker room. Thank you

Danny.
