It is an honour to be asked to be Blankney’s 2021 Senior’s Captain and I would like to thank Ivor Samways for volunteering and agreeing to be my Vice-Captain for the coming year.
I would also like to publicly thank our secretary (John Wood) for all his efforts in running, so smoothly, all the competitions we completed since the end of lockdown 1 and for arranging a full and extensive fixture list for 2021.
I trust all our seasoned Senior Golfers and the number of new members, who joined us from various other golf clubs, also enjoyed these events. Unfortunately we were unable to fulfil any inter-club matches in 2020, but please be advised that we intend to play all 2021 matches, guided by the extant covid-19 rules, in place at that time.
Blankney Golf Club is a great golf course excellently managed by John Hart and his green staff who have worked hard to maintain the course, to (and above) its usual standards, under difficult circumstances.
I also thanks Graham, Alex, Tracey and Sarah and all their teams, for all the hard work in putting “into play” all the covid-19 regulations, therefore keeping us safe and allowing us all to enjoy our wonderful game!
My congratulations to this year’s winners of the Senior’s Order of Merit, Bob Manser and the Eclectic, Sid Hicks and to Derek Isaac of his usual excellent organization.
In closing; I would like to thank Fred Fox for his Captaincy over this unusual year and look forward to his counsel, as I start my year in post.
Here is to a better 2021,
