Welcome to the Members’ area of our new website. Our aim is to keep this updated and relevant to you.

Hello - my name is Andy Holyoake and it is my pleasure to welcome you to Cumberwell Park for the 2018-19 season. It is slowly sinking in that I have been given this opportunity and privilege. I am deeply honoured to be asked, and look forward to an exciting year ahead as the club celebrates its 25th Anniversary Year.

The year ahead will be full of the usual competitions and fixtures where members represent our club far and wide against a variety of opposition. In advance of all of those, can I wish all competitors the very best, and a slice of luck for the events they enter.

For many of you, golf is less about competing in club competitions and teams, and much more about the social contact with your friends, and the sheer fun to be had. In our 25th year we do not want to forget you too and we will ensure that events we are planning are open to all. Keep your eyes open in the weekly newsletters and online for more information as the year progresses.

I have been a member of Cumberwell Park for about ten years now, and my hand is 17 (today!) and something I will try really hard this year to bring down further. This year I am separating the Captains weekend into two parts. The first - the ‘playing’ weekend will be two days of competition over the weekend 20th and 21st July, followed by the ‘social’ weekend with an Olympians Sports Dinner event on Saturday October 5th. I am very excited about this, we have already got one Olympic Gold Medallist to attend and speak, and I am pursuing other Olympians to create a double bill that will appeal across the membership.

I am keen to meet as many members as possible this year and will continue to have ‘Captain’s Roll-Up’ evenings through the summer, where members new and old can meet and play friendly 9-hole rounds in a mixture of formats on all our five courses.

My charity this year will be Anthony Nolan, a charity well known to many that manages the national donor register for bone marrow or stem cells. It is a charity I have been associated with for over 40 years, and matches donors to those in urgent need of life saving stem cells to treat blood cancers. Our son Ben was matched in 2018 and successfully donated stem cells making our link to the charity even stronger.

Help me to support them through the year. I am nominating the 16th hole - the drop over the lake on the Yellow course as a charity hole, so if you end up in the drink or right of the path, feel free to put 50p in the bottle on the bar - If you are under 30 then might I suggest you look online and consider registering to be a donor too?

If you want to take the next step from playing just with your mates, and want to play in friendly fixtures against clubs in the area (an excellent way of visiting other courses) our Club Vice Captain Mark Hynes would be very pleased to receive a message from you as we are always looking for new players. Fixtures are spread across midweek and the weekend through the summer.

I wish to record my sincere thanks to the James family for giving me this opportunity, which I regard as a huge honour, and look forward to working with the other sections and Captains through the year. Enjoy your golf everyone!

Please e-mail me at captain@cumberwellpark.com should you wish to contact me or if I can be of any help.
