John Proctor – Captain
I am honoured and proud to be Captain of Dore & Totley Golf Club for 2017.
It is my pleasure to offer members and visitors alike a warm welcome, via our website, to this friendly club and excellent golf course.
I trust that this website will provide you with the information you need, however, if you require further details or have a query please do not hesitate to contact our Secretary or Professional either of whom will be only too happy to help.
Visitors, societies and private functions are always welcome at Dore and Totley. We trust that the course and the warm welcome you will receive from members and staff alike will provide you with a memorable and truly enjoyable golfing experience, and also, one that you will be keen to repeat.
I am looking forward to my year as Captain, and look forward to the challenges ahead. In addition to our employees, we have a small number of Directors and many members who help with the running of the club. If any members feel they have skills to offer or want to become more active and involved in the club please speak to me or any other member of the board. Also, if you are concerned about anything to do with the course or the club, please speak to a member of the Board of Directors or myself.
To all new or prospective members of Dore and Totley Golf Club, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and assure you that I will do everything possible to make your choice of club a rewarding experience. Members of Dore and Totley pride themselves on their warm, friendly approach to all golfers no matter what level of golf they play.
If you like making new friends and playing friendly or competitive golf, the club has many sections catering for all levels of play Details can be found on the club website, or alternatively speak to our excellent Club Professional Steve Roberts or one of his team.
Anyone who is interested in getting into golf should consider our Academy which involves a full introduction to golf and regular lessons as well as access to the course at a very competitive rate. The Academy enables new golfers to meet like-minded friends before taking up full membership. In 2016 we had a very successful ladies section and it would be great to replicate that in 2017. Just talk to Steve who will fill in any details.
I am also looking forward to seeing the continued development of our Junior Section. Steve Roberts is doing an excellent job with his coaching sessions but he and his team do need help to get our young golfers out on the course and playing competitive golf. I would ask any member who would be interested in becoming a Junior organizer to contact Steve in the first instance.
My Captains Day will be held on Saturday 24th June 2017 and will be followed by a combined presentation & social evening when members and guests will be invited to attend for complementary food and entertainment.
I have chosen Alzheimer’s Society as my Captains Charity during my year of office and I would appreciate any support members and friends can give to raise money for a very worthwhile cause.
Finally I would like to wish Pat Batty our Lady Captain, Janice Hodgson our Lady President, Barry Symonds our President and all members of the club the very best for the coming year. Please enjoy your golf.
I am honoured and delighted to accept the position of Lady Captain for the year 2017. Alongside Lady President (Janice Hodgson) and Lady Vice Captain (Vicky Cutts), I wish the club as a whole a very successful and enjoyable year.
There is an exciting programme of events planned for 2017, including A-team, Weekend, Rabbits fixtures, as well as two Ladies open competitions. It is my hope that new and existing ladies participate in representing our club. The Ladies’ exchange day will be at Wilmslow GC and will take place on the 23th August 2017.
I have chosen as my charity the Sheffield Hospital REAM Trust Fund, which has supported me and many others who suffer with arthritic and bone problems. It is a small trust and as such does not enjoy the support given to some of the larger charities. I look forward to your help and support in raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
Finally, I would like to wish John Proctor our Men’s Captain, Barry Symonds our President and Steven Coates our Men’s Vice Captain a very enjoyable and successful year.
Once again all the best for some great weather along with some very enjoyable golf in 2017
