I am delighted to have been confirmed as club captain for the 2022 season.  I will be the 100th Club Captain which is a real milestone for the club and a great honour for me.

 I am extremely pleased that my good friend Peter Fowler has agreed to be my Vice-Captain. I would also like to thank Jon Flint for the wonderful job he did as Captain last year.

I am very much looking forward to working with Mary Garner, the new Ladies Captain, the Junior Captain Finn Dobson and the Seniors Captain John Palmer and wish all sections of the club an enjoyable year.

 May I extend a warm welcome to all our visitors and other clubs  and hope all members have a wonderful golfing year.

 Shortly, match managers will sending out emails asking for members to participate in club matches and I look forward to close fought games, then sitting down to enjoy a drink and a meal with our opponents. Please get involved.

Carol Smith will be running the highly popular mixed team matches so keep an eye on the mixed notice board for dates and matches. Anyone who has not played before and would like to be included please contact Carol on - carol.thebarn@gmail.com . I have played and really enjoyed mixed golf so if you have not tried it why not get involved?

 The men’s scratch team matches take place on Thursday evenings between April and August (see section “Men’s inter club matches”). There are many members who support these matches as spectators and this is always appreciated by our top players. I do hope many of you will join me in supporting our team, who play in the top division it”s an opportunity to see golf at the very highest standard in our county.

 In May TLGC will be hosting another England Golf event, it is the inaugural English Senior Men’s Amateur Championship from the 8th-13th May, please come along and spectate or sign up to be a helper on the day.

 It is also a year when we host the Millennium Bowl played against four other clubs founded like us in 1890, this will be played on Friday 27th May.

  My Captains/Professional weekend away will be on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th June at my previous club Hallamshire just outside Sheffield overlooking the beautiful peak district, places are limited to 40 so please put your name down to secure your spot.

 The Club Championships will be held on Sunday 24th July with the Justin Davies on Sunday 18th September.
