It is often said that life is full of surprises and being nominated to become president of the Halifax, Huddersfield & District Union of Golf Clubs for 2017 was certainly one of those incredible moments for me.
As a founder member of the youngest club in our Union, Crow Nest Park, I never expected that this tremendous honour would be bestowed on what for some, even in our local metropolis, is a somewhat hidden gem of a golf club. For me personally the privilege of this most prestigious appointment is unequalled. Without the support of my family and the officials and members of Crow Nest Park taking on this role would have been unthinkable. I owe a deep debt of gratitude to you all and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will work tirelessly to ensure that your trust in me does not disappoint.
My time on the executive and this year as President Elect has been a steep learning curve. The schooling, guidance and direction received from your Executive, who give so generously of their time, is deserving of the highest level of praise and I thank them all for their outstanding work and support. I have been made incredibly welcome by all and would recommend anyone who is so inclined to put themselves forward to serve on the executive.
My thanks go also to our sponsors whose support we rely on increasingly for our union activities.
I congratulate Stuart Naylor, President 2016, on a job well done and I thank him personally for his friendship, vitality and comradeship.
It is usual to welcome and introduce the new President Elect but John Lawrence needs no introduction. Suffice to say he deserves this accolade; I wish him well and look forward to working with him this year and his wise counsel will be gratefully received.
Finally I hope that the changes to our rules and regulations for competitions and matches for the coming season, brought about in no small part by the feedback from member clubs, enhances your golfing experience in 2017. Enjoy the good weather that’s on order and above all else relish this game we all love.
John Turner President 2017.
