From Guy Wright, Club Captain 2021: My Captaincy year:
On reflection, I have thoroughly enjoyed the experience of being Club Captain. The start of my year was a real disappointment, with lockdown forcing the closure of the club until the end of March, but the following 8 months have been a real roller coaster ride. We have seen a real positive change to our clubhouse and course over the last year and seen memberships rise from over 300 to over 900 and we have seen an increase in these new players joining in our club competitions which is fantastic.
It has been a pleasure to work with Ed over the last year and I have been impressed with his enthusiasm, drive and vision for our club. Thank you also to Andy, Amy and Julie who work tirelessly running the club day to day. To Nick Darby who runs the GG online store, and I would recommend to all members that they look at the web site, Nick will try and price match wherever possible. A special thank you to Yvonne Brooke at GG community outreach team who went above and beyond is helping with the recent fundraiser.
From Norah McPhail, Ladies’ Captain 2021:
My Captaincy seems to have flown by and the Sherfield Ladies have been amazing. It has been an honour and a privilege to be their Captain. I have so many amazing memories to look back on and I would like to thank them all for their help and support throughout the year. I could not have done it without them.
I would also like to thank Andy, Amy and her fantastic team, Ross and his band of Merry Men, Julie Bond, Chris Conquest, John Taylor, Keith Lockett, Ed Berridge, Lewis Fost, Emma Clayton and finally, our outstanding Club Captain Guy.
I wishing incoming Captains’ Emma, Karen, and Ed every success for 2022!
