2017 Captain - Barry Tiplady

I fell especially privileged to be given the opportunity to be Captain at Girton Golf Club for the coming year. I have been a member for almost 10 years and have made many friends during this time.
Following 2016 Captain, Chris Atkin, I know I have a hard act to follow. Chris and I have been friends for nearly 45 years and I know that whatever he takes on he gives it 110%. I will try to show the sort of dedication that he has during 2016.
This year has seen the start of major changes at the club both on and off the course. With Alan Fletcher taking up the new post of Director of Golf, we can be sure that his enthusiasm and experience will help push the club forward.
The course is also undergoing significant improvements under the guidance of the greens committee and green staff who continue to produce what I think are some of the best greens in the region.
We are also fortunate to have an excellent team of teaching professional and I am sure many of you have benefited from the advice and guidance given by Alan, Dean and Ollie.
In the coming year I want to encourage as many members as possible to participate in the competitions and to push themselves forward to play in clubs friendly matches.. It is a great way to play with and meet new people outside of your playing circle and players of all ability are welcome.
Girton is a members club and I think that it is important that every member has the opportunity to express their opinions and make suggestions which help to make being a member as enjoyable as possible. If any member wishes to raise any issues then please feel free to approach and discuss these with me.
Finally on behalf of myself and my Vice-Captain Steve Andrews, I would wish you all have very prosperous 2017 on and off the golf course.
