Following the EGGS AGM on the 11th December, which was attended by 80 members, I was elected Captain of the Section for 2019 taking over from Graham Fox who has done an excellent job representing the Section and Club through 2018.
I started my golf as a junior at Temple Newsam GC and have enjoyed my golf all my life. Since joining Normanton my love of the game has continued and have played for the Rabbits and Tigers section of the club and now being in my senior years i am happy to be a member of the EGGS, the largest section at the club.
I consider it a to be a great honour to be elected as EGGS Captain and hope that I am able to follow in the steps of previous Captains and represent the Section and Club with success.
In 2018 the Section had 125 members and the camaraderie which exists is first class – new members are always welcome and will find a very friendly group of people with whom they can enjoy a game of golf and a drink afterwards in the Club House.
Nigel Stroud has agreed to be my Vice Captain and we both look forward to welcoming members old and new to the Section. Matches have been planned against other Clubs and we look forward to joining with other members, representing the EGGS in these matches and providing the membership as whole, with an entertaining programme of golf in 2019.
