Seniors' Captain's Welcome

Dear all

I am delighted to have recently been elected Captain of Newark Golf Club Seniors for 2017.

I am fortunate in that many past Senior's Captains are still active within our Section whose advice, along with that of past Secretaries, I am able to draw upon.

These past office holders have made major contributions to establishing Newark Seniors as perhaps the largest,friendliest and most welcoming golf group of its type in the Region. I will be doing all I can during my tenure to maintain our ethos of fun, social golf with an element of competition.

In summary our golfing year comprises:

  • Roll ups on Mondays and Thursdays with four-balls made up as you arrive on the first tee. - An ideal way to make new golfing friends as I have found.
  • Monthly Stableford and Medal competitions(aside from the depths of Winter)and singles/doubles competitions.
  • Inter-club matches,Quarterly Meetings and Exchange Days all of which are followed by lunch.

Details of events are posted on the Senior's Notice Board in the Spike Bar of the Club House.

Beaumond House Community Hospice is our main charity-a magnificent £8000 donated in 2016.They will also be the Senior's Captain's Charity in 2017 in memory of my father Alex to whom they gave wonderful support.

My Vice Captain, Keith Martin, Secretary, Howard Wibberley, Treasurer, Mike Willey and Competitions Organiser, Simon Channon join me in wishing you and your families a happy and healthy 2017.

We also invite any member of the Club aged 60 or over to join us and anyone over 60 considering new membership at Newark.
