Firstly I would like to thank David Johnson for what I believe has been a very successful year as Captain and also for giving me the opportunity to act as both his Vice Captain and to fulfill the role of Captain. I feel very privileged to be asked to serve the Club as Captain especially as I have only been a member for the last 15 years when I moved into the area. Although only being a member here for that period of time I have played golf for the last 40 years and have been lucky enough to have played on 4 continents and some of the best championship courses around the world.


As importantly whilst playing a game that I love I have also made friendships that will last a lifetime and I would want to encourage all members to take any opportunity that they can to forge new alliances and invite new players to participate. 


As some of you may be aware it is the Club’s 120th Anniversary next year and together with some other clubs from across the world we have formed an 1892 Club, I would urge you all to look out for more information on this and to take advantage of it. 


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the following people into their new positions and to wish them all a successful year:-


Vice Captain – Keith Hodson

Lady Captain – Marion Batey

Senior Captain – John Casey

Junior Captain – Nathan Rusby


I am a great believer in the traditions of the game and I would want to encourage members to uphold those traditions and values. I consider that as Captain I am a servant of the Club and its members and therefore would want to make myself available to Members for any problems or issues relevant to that role.


I hope that I will undertake the role as Captain with humility, integrity and humour and in full recognition of the fact that in 12 months I will be back in the ranks!


Finally I wish you all a healthy, happy and successful 2012.


Boyd Stanhope, Captain 2012.
