Captains Welcome

Foreword from the Captain 2023

I am looking forward to my year as Captain and to working with our Lady Captain, Anna Avery, our Vice-Captains, John Flavell & Ros Waterhouse, and our excellent professional team led by Craig Morris.

It was an honour to be asked to stand as Captain and I aim to help maintain the ethos of Retford GC as a friendly & inclusive club with an excellent course.

My chosen charity for the year is the Weston Park Cancer Charity, whose aims are to support those in the local area dealing with cancer with advice, support and therapy, also funding research & clinical trials to improve treatments.

Foreword from the Lady Captain 2023

I am really looking forward to a good golfing year as Lady Captain of Retford Golf Club!

During Covid restrictions many activities were curtailed but we are now getting back to an active social life in the club as well as an efficient tee time booking system. The green staff have been hard working in keeping the course in the best possible condition and it deservedly enjoys an excellent reputation.

In the last year as Lady Vice-Captain I have been part of the Management Committee and learned so much more about what it takes to run a successful golf club and I am sure will continue to increase my knowledge in this year, when I will represent the Ladies Section.

The support of Craig Morris our golf professional, is ever present and is a friendly face in the pro-shop and around the course, in company with his wonder dog Oscar. I know there will be generous support too from the Ladies Committee, Past Lady Captains, the very efficient office staff and the catering team.

We are such a friendly club and I look forward to working with Lady Vice , Ros Waterhouse, Mr Captain, Dave Halford and his Vice-Captain, John Flavell in the coming year.

I am choosing Breast Cancer Now as my chosen charity and look forward to support from all members and guests - remember that men can get breast cancer too!
