Newark Golf Club has one of the best, or in Carlsberg-speak, probably the best Seniors’ Section in the County, with over 100 playing members. To be invited to lead the Section for 2018 is a tremendous honour.
Our Section combines pleasure with duty. We play a combination of social and competitive golf, with modest prizes for winners, but also devote time and effort to raising funds for Beaumond House Community Hospice in Newark. We also make a contribution to a second local charity. As a Nottingham lad I have been advised by who those who live nearer to Newark on the suitability of several such charities: I have selected the Children’s Bereavement Centre on King’s Road.
That I live in Nottingham yet choose to play my golf at Newark Golf Club says all you need to know about the Seniors’ Section. I wish all our members an enjoyable and healthy 2018, and look forward to welcoming any new members who may join during my year. I also take this opportunity to thank my fellow Committee members for their support as we continue to introduce some modest changes aimed at enhancing the smooth running of the Section.
