2018 Club Captains elected

Congratulations to our new 2018 Captains, Ellie Bennett and Dereck Martin. At the Golf Club AGM on 21st March they were elected for the next 12 months.

Dereck says; “I was both proud and honoured to be asked to be Captain of Alfreton Golf Club for the year of 2018. Having played with and against many Members from here over the years there was only one Club I was ever going to join on leaving Ormonde Fields Golf Club and this was it. The friendliness and camaraderie of this Club is second to none.”

Ellie adds, “At a time when some golf clubs membership is dwindling, I am very happy to say that our Ladies Section continues to thrive and grow with more new members joining within the last few months.
One of my aims in my year as Lady Captain is to play golf with as many members as I can.”

In addition to the appointment of the Captains, other notable changes were the election of Peter Labas as Men’s Vice Captain and Phil Bennett (no relation to Ellie!) as our incoming Chairman.
A special acknowledgement was made to our outgoing Chairman, David Evans, who had held the post for 10 years, thanking him for his hard work and dedication.
