Welcome from our Captains
CLUB CAPTAIN 2023/24
Another year, an outgoing captain, an incoming captain and a new vice captain, to the outgoing captain, Jason, it’s been a fantastic year, you should be proud of your captaincy. As I step up to the captains role, it goes without saying, thank you to all members for your vote of confidence, it is with great honour and privilege to represent you the members of Sleaford Golf Club, I am looking forward to the coming year.
To my vice captain Paul Ellis thank you for accepting the offer, I know your how popular you are within the golf club, enjoy this coming season, you’ll be a great captain the following year.
Our Ladies Captain for 2023/24 is Carol Brinkworth, I wish you every success for the forthcoming coming year, I look forward to working with yourself and the Ladies section.
Our Seniors Captain for 2023/24 is Ian Lavender, the seniors section at Sleaford Golf Club is always active with in club comps, club matches or just a casual round, there’s something there for anyone wishing to play in the Seniors section, I’m sure Ian will cope with his work load, here’s wishing Ian every success in the coming year. It has to be said, both the Ladies and Seniors sections work extremely hard to support the club.
Our Juniors Captain for 2023/24 is Sophie Robinson, you’ve got great support around you, enjoy your year Sophie. The Juniors section seems to go from strength to strength under the supervision of our PGA professional Dan Thomas with Nick Musson being the Juniors organiser, I personally would like to thank Dan and Nick for all their hard work.
With our Greens staff lead by Brian Sharp, his team work tirelessly keeping the course in tip top condition, there’s always a project going on to improve the course whether its new bunkers, re-turfing tee boxes or re seeding the fairways, the greens are exceptional all year round. We get a lot of green fees throughout the winter months as the course is based on light sandy loam.
Sleaford golf Club’s motto is “a pleasure to play”, this is so true, whether you are a new member or a visiting society or just paying green fee’s for the day, we welcome you, we hope you enjoy your round and finish off in the club house with either tea/coffee/beer accompanied by some delicious food from our catering department.
As with all golf clubs, we need manager and a committee to run the club, our manager Nigel Pearce runs the office very efficiently, we are lucky to have him, with our committee, we have a great team behind us who give up their free time to help the cause of Sleaford Golf Club. I’m sure with most golf clubs there’s a project going on behind the scenes, we’re no different, within the past year, we have installed solar panels to help keep spiraling electric costs to a minimum whilst protecting the environment and reducing our carbon footprint, we have three more big projects in progress.
Lastly, I would like to congratulate Nick Lawson on his achievements, our head of greens committee member has been awarded the Conservation Greenkeeper of the year for 2023, what a fantastic reward for all his hard work, well done Nick.
Have a great and enjoyable golfing season.
