This is a Golfer of the Year event. The shine could have been taken off Jim's captaincy by Covid 19 but he has led the club superbly through the lockdown and on to the startup, with excellent assistance from committee members, the ground staff, the office staff and an army of volunteers, to where we are now with things nearly normal. Jim was a hardworking competitions secretary and men's treasurer, along with managing various club teams, before assuming the captaincy. The big entry is expected for this most important major of the year to honour a popular captain. We all hope the weather obliges and we have two weekend's of big crowds playing excellent golf with Jim and his family enjoying themselves at the club.
