CAPTAIN'S CHARITY OPEN - Saturday 30th September 2023

The Captain’s Charity Open was held on the rearranged date of Saturday 30th September 2023 after being cancelled in July due to bad weather.

Leek Golf Club Captain, Peter Cordon, hosted the day. The Captain’s chosen charities for the year are the Peter Alliss Wheelchair Appeal, the British Heart Foundation and Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Over 120 golfers played on the day. The weather thankfully was fine in the morning but unfortunately the afternoon players were not so lucky, and the rain was persistent. The course was in fantastic condition and was a credit to the green staff.

The presentation of the wheelchair in the evening was not possible this year due to the family being away. This is being arranged for a date later in the year.

The total raised for the charities on the day was over £5,000 which is a fantastic achievement.

A big thank you to this year’s hole sponsors. Your support is greatly appreciated.

I would like to add my personal thanks to the following who all contributed to a successful day. Without this volunteer support events like the Captain’s Charity would not be possible:

The Ladies who helped run the Half-Way House.

HDB Robinson for being Competition Starter, especially when the weather deteriorated!

Mike Barker, our Match Secretary, for interpreting the team scorecards. Not an easy task when teams change at the last minute (!!!).

Lastly, and by no means least, without whom this fund raising event would not be successful:

Greg Rogula, our Professional, who, in addition to the ‘beat the Pro’ on the 11th, was heavily involved in the event organisation and Bo and Clare Robinson, whose personal commitment to this charity event each year is what makes it so special.

Words cannot express my gratitude to them.

On Friday 18th November Leek Golf Club held their Junior Presentation Evening at the Golf Club. It was very well attended (over 50 people) by junior members, their families and senior dignitaries and the golf club provided a hot buffet afterwards.

Every junior received an individual medal with their award as well as a voucher.

It was announced that Lewis Foxall is to be the Junior Captain for 2023.

The evening was hosted by Mr Peter Cordon, the present Junior Organiser, who is retiring from the post after 18 years (minus a three year interlude) and a gift of thanks was given to him from Matt Pickin who is now taking over the role.

The majority of the awards were presented by the Club Captain Mr Kevin Perkin. The President’s Trophy was presented by the President Mr Barry Hughes and The Joe Machin Trophy was presented by Mr Andy Machin.
