Alfonso Castineira, Golf Operations Manager commented;


“The Club would like to extend its thanks both to those members that stood for election and those who demonstrated their confidence in the nominees and exercised their right to vote, a total of 111 voting forms have been received, thus ensuring the election of the Club Officials as a whole.

I am sure that all members will join me in thanking Past Captain Martin McLellan and Past Handicap Committee Member Paul Taylor for their dedication and time given to the Club.

We look forward to continuing to work together, with the aim, as always, to build upon the foundations created by previous Club Officials for the benefit of all.”


As a reminder, please note that the closing date for both Club Championship, Club Championship Stableford and
