It is my absolute privilege and honour to be elected your Captain for 2019. Thank you.
My personal thanks go out to Liz Thomas, our 2018 Captain, both for selecting me as her Vice and for the unerring commitment she has demonstrated throughout the year.
Well done Liz, truly a tough act to follow!
My golfing love affair started in 1975 – the year Britain joined the common market and bizarrely find myself 44 years later as Club Captain in the year Britain exits!
I am proud of our golf club and have 3 particular values that I enter 2019 with:
. Tradition – Uphold the strong heritage of our club.
. Family – Grow the ‘St Athan Golf Club family’ in both a social and golfing sense
Community – I have chosen 2 charities to support during the year, The Royal British Legion and Llantwit Major Lifeguards – both organisations do incredible work within our community.
As your Captain, it is my intention to be transparent approachable and open-minded and I look forward to earning your support but also representing the interests of you, the members, to the best of my ability in 2019.
I wish everyone a healthy and enjoyable golfing year and look forward to playing golf with as many of you as possible.
