Please come back soon to read Darren’s thoughts for the 2021 golf season for members and visitors
Lady Captain 2021 – Ms Susan Taylor
Welcome to Arcot Hall Golf Club.
Thank you to my predecessor Past Captain Sylvia Findlay for a great year in 2019 and her continued support.
2020 was a very different year as Lady Captain, our ladies section spent most of the year in virtual contact. We did manage to get together to play distanced golf a few times, the course was in fantastic condition thanks to the Green keepers who worked tirelessly throughout the year to maintain the course.
I was honoured to be asked to continue as Lady Captain for 2021 and hopefully this year will be a great year on and off the golf course.
My Charity this year will continue to be Pathways 4 all, specifically the Tim Lamb Centre based in the Rising Sun Country Park that offers specialist activity and leisure facilities for disabled children/ young people and their families. We received a lovely Christmas Card made by one of the children.
Arcot Hall offers a great place to play golf for Ladies and Girls. From the true beginner, where we have a Golf Academy run by the Golf Pro and assisted by the Ladies Section, through to Elite Players. Our Ladies Competition day is a Friday, this year we also have two Ladies Opens (full details are on the Opens page on this website). There’s also great opportunities to play casual golf along with joining in our mixed competitions.
I’d like to wish good luck to all of our teams playing in the NLCGA matches this year, we are lucky to have 2 teams in the Shield Divisions, a team in the Evening League and also a chance for our lady golfers to play in the TR Percy or Norah Percy knockout teams.
I’d like to end by hoping everyone has a safe 2021 golfing season, remember it’s great to be out in the sun playing good golf with good friends. It’s even better when there’s birdsong and the sight of a baby deer crossing your path.
