I would like to extend a warm welcome to everyone on behalf of Langlands Golf Club. It is a great honour for me to serve as your Captain for 2017, and I would like to thank Stan Rodgers for giving me this opportunity. Stan's year as Captain in 2016 was a great success, and I look forward to working alongside him this year in his new role as Past Captain.
I would also like to thank Tommy McDermott for agreeing to be my Vice-Captain this year. Tommy is well-known to everyone at the club and I know he will make a great captain in 2018 - he has previous experience in the role!
I Intend to play golf with as many members as possible this year. 2017 promises to be good golfing year for Langlands, however it is really important that all members play their part in supporting the club, not only in the schedule of competitions but by attending the various social events that the club puts on throughout the year. We have some new events planned for this year, and it would be fantastic to see the membership support them in numbers.
Every golf club in the country faces financial challenges and Langlands is no different; for us to continue to thrive as a club we need to continue to attract new members and for this to happen we need to offer a healthy social calendar as well as a golfing one.
I wish everyone a successful golfing year for 2017 - I hope to see you on the course and in the clubhouse over the coming months.
