It is with deep sadness that I inform you of the death of Peter Stubbs, our club professional and head green keeper from 1963 till 2001.
There is no doubt that Peter made a major contribution to the success of Leek Golf Club during its formative years and will be remembered fondly for his "Open All Hours" approach to retailing, his unique sense of humour and mischief and not least for his love of red wine and own brand golf ball, "The Birchall Flier".
The funeral will take place on Tuesday 15th July 2014 at Carmountside Crematorium followed by refreshments at Leek Golf Club.
On behalf of members I thank Peter for his time at Leek Golf Club and his contribution in making our club the success it is today. R.I.P.
Peter was with the Golf Club for nearly 40 years so if any members have any fond memories or anecdotes of Peter please can you send them to email@example.com for a future feature.
