Welcome to Dore & Totley Golf Club
John Proctor - President
I am honoured to have been elected as President of Dore & Totley Golf Club. It is a great privilege and in my role I will uphold the traditions and standards of the best golf club in the area.
2021 will be a challenging year, but we have excellent employees and a Board of Directors with a range of skills and expertise to take the club forward. I will continue to be part of the Board as Chair of Finance.. We will continue to support the club by focussing on improving our facilities whilst increasing revenue. However, the interest of members will always remain paramount.as we are a members club and members are the heart of Dore & Totley.
Our club and particularly the course have received many plaudits over the past year from visitors and members alike and we will work hard to maintain and improve the welcome and the standards we have achieved.
My best wishes go to our new Club captain, Tim Drake, his Vice Captain, Jason Ramsden and our Ladies Captain, Deborah Robinson. I wish all members and visitors an enjoyable year’s golf and invite you to make full use of the club facilities whenever you are able.
All the best for 2021
John Proctor - President
Tim Drake - Captain
It is my privilege to represent Dore & Totley Golf Club as Club Captain.
2020 proved to be a challenge given the pandemic situation and at least the first quarter of 2021 will continue in a similar manner. Having said that the plans and preparations are in place to make sure we can hit the ground running as soon as restrictions are lifted. Our Course Manager and Greens Team have worked continually throughout to ensure the course remains in top condition and improvement works have carried on throughout.
From a personal point of view and alongside my Vice Captain, Jason Ramsden my focus will continue around developing our off course and social activities. We already have a number of social events scheduled and live entertainment and bands booked for late spring, summer and beyond. I can assure you that as soon as permitted we will let lose and a night in the Dore & Totley GC Devonshire Lounge will be a night not to be missed !
I will also continue to promote and develop our fun and mixed competitions alongside our Lady Captain, Deborah Robinson.
It’s been a pretty miserable and frustrating 2020/early 2021 but that only serves in making me more determined to put on a first class ‘show’ throughout the summer and autumn.
I look forward to having a round and drink after with all.
Wishing all existing members and all prospective members an enjoyable 2021 – remember everyone’s a friend at Dore & Totley GC and everyone’s welcome at Dore & Totley GC.
Deborah Robinson - Ladies’ Captain
I was surprised to be asked to be the Lady Captain of Dore and Totley 2021 as I have only been a member for 5 years. I hope that people saw that I have a strong network at Dore & Totley across both male and female members, as my husband Martin has worked as the Retail Manager in the Professional Shop for the last 20 years, and can bring people across the golf club together.
I started my own golfing journey by becoming a member of the academy where I was joined by 12 other lady golfers. We worked our way through the ranks and I am proud to say we are all full-time members and still very good friends.
Dore & Totley is a very friendly club where everyone is welcome, and you’ll always get a game as the professional staff have a knack of pairing up like-minded people -even if your usual partner isn’t available! The course is absolutely fabulous and certainly one to be proud of; it’s a hidden gem on the edge of Sheffield.
With myself, my Vice-Captain Alison Shaw, the men’s Captain Tim Drake (an old school friend of mine from longer ago then I care to remember!) and his Vice-Captain Jason Ramsden we are all hoping that 2021 will be a year of great golfing, greater integration and lots of enjoyment.
