Captain’s Comments

A hearty welcome to a new season at Melrose Golf Club. I’m sure we are all looking forward to this new year with the usual wide eyed optimism.

I would like thank last year’s Captain David Gribbin for his confidence in me, and the Committee in general for all their support.

There are now two Captain’s Charity Bunkers being introduced this season (Greenside bunker on left of 1st hole and first greenside bunker to right of 6th hole). They will hopefully raise some money for a good cause and will do the Club’s standing in the local community no harm at all.

If any members have any problems or issues over the season, then please do not hesitate to contact me and I will be more than happy to help in any way I can. As your Captain, I promise to do everything I can to make this season a fine and enjoyable one for everyone in the club.
