A message from the Club Vice-Captain

A Message from the Club Vice-Captain


Dear Member, Owner

It is not too long until my year as Desert Springs Golf Club Captain starts and so I thought it would be a good time to send you a message. It is a huge honour for me to be taking up this role and I am really looking forward to it.

Before I start, I’m sure you would all join me in sending congratulations to Nicki McKemmie-Watson who has had a very busy year as Captain, with many events and matches having been organised throughout the year and a large amount of money raised for Asprodalba. Well done Nicki.

My ‘Drive In’ will take place on Thursday 11th April, 2024 and I am already practicing.

My theme will be ‘The Masters’ as my ‘Drive In’ is on the first day of The Masters tournament. Please feel free to be as literal or as imaginative as you wish.

The day will start at the Cave Bar for Bacon Sandwiches, Pastries, coffee and cava, followed by my ‘Drive In’ from the first tee. The format for the team golf will be a Texas Scramble and mulligans will be available. As usual, you will have the chance to choose the tee that you start/finish on.

The evening event will be held in El Torrente Restaurant, with a 3-course meal with drinks during service, then the prize presentation and raffle and then straight to the music. I am happy to announce that The Springers have agreed to play for us, so we should have a great evening. The dress code for the evening is green/yellow to continue with The Masters theme.

I really hope that all of you that play golf will join in the fun on the day, and those that don’t play golf will join us for the evening.

Many thanks to all the committee members, who have helped to run things throughout the year, and to all those who are standing for election for this coming year.

You may be aware that I have nominated Sue Garrod as my Vice-Captain and I hope you will all support this. I am really looking forward to working closely with Sue and the rest of the committee.

I intend to continue supporting Asprodalba, as our chosen charity, which I think is a very worthwhile cause to support. Thank you all in advance.

Finally, if anyone feels able to donate any items for the raffle, or food and drink for the Hacienda, I would be very grateful.

My contact details are cmear48@gmail.com or telephone +34 648 100 896 if you need to contact me about anything.

Thanks again for all your support and I look forward to seeing you all soon.
