Captains Welcome

Foreword from the Captain 2022

It is a great honour to be elected Captain of Retford Golf Club, it will be a pleasure to work with Vice-Captain David Halford, the Lady Captain Mary Saddington and Lady Vice-Captain Anna Avery.

My chosen charity is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust who are fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Their mission is to create a world where being born with CF will be able to look forward to a long and healthy life.

I look forward to working with everyone and to seeing you all in 2022.

Mike Mahony





Foreword from the Lady Captain 2022

Due to COVID, I was not able to take up the role as Lady Captain in 2021 and so worked as the Lady Vice Captain for two years.  I am therefore very pleased that I can now look forward to 2022, as Lady Captain, and hope that we can have a great year playing golf.

When I joined Retford Golf Club, my first impression was that the Ladies Section is very friendly and always welcomes new members, whatever their standard of play.  I have therefore been happy to represent the Club, in particular the Ladies, on the Management Committee and support all our efforts to achieve continual improvement in our facilities, particularly out on the course.  

I have listened to the views of the Ladies as to how they would like their section to move forward and I hope that as their Lady Captain, I can give them my full support.  I look forward to working with my Vice Captain,  Anna Avery, and Mr Captain, Mike Mahony as well as his Vice Captain Dave Halford.  I also know that Craig Morris, our Club Professional, and the office staff, will  be a great support.  I am certain that we will make a great team.

As Lady Captain I have the opportunity to nominate a charity for members to support during my year as Lady Captain.  I have chosen The Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, which is a local charity and does tremendous work in supporting children with cancer as well as their families and friends.
