Our 2021-22 Captains

Our 2021-22 Captains

After the strange year that was 2020; we move forward into the new 2021-22 season and would like to welcome our Captains into their positions.

Billy Morrison will be recognised as our Captain from last year, he has readily agreed to ‘have another go’ and hopefully will be able to see many more matches and social golfing activites happen this time round. His Vice Captain is Phil Taylor, please welcome them both.

On the Ladies side, Val Sharpe is our newly appointed Captain, alongside Beryl Stewart as her Vice Captain. The Ladies were able to have a socially distanced ‘drive off’ on Tuesday 30th March to get their season started, see some pictures below.

It goes without saying, we all give a big thankyou to outgoing past Ladies Captain, Linda Baston for her hard work during 2020.

For more information from our Captains, please check out the link here.
