To all Members.
Approximately 50 years ago I joined Phoenix Golf Club never imagining that in 2017 I would become President of such a fantastic club.
I remember when there were no trees and one foot high rough either side of the fairways. How things have changed? There are now hundreds of trees planted and bunkers built.
Over the years not only have we have seen a dramatic change to the golf course but also how we have evolved into a well respected and well loved golf club within the Sheffield Union of Golf Clubs thanks to a lot of hard work and dedication by past officials, members and more recently a great team of groundstaff lead by Mr Graham Pickin the Head Groundsman.
Onwards and upwards!
For 2017 I would like to wish our new captains, Mr Alan Askey, Mrs Wendy Nicklin and Oliver Sullivan (Junior Capt) a very enjoyable and successful year in office.
I look forward to further success by all who represent Phoenix Golf Club this year and that we all continue to be good ambassadors for our great club.
Finally I wish all members a very enjoyable golfing year.
I am truly honoured to serve as your Club President for the next two years
Club President 2017 - 2018
