A warm welcome from from our Club Captain, ladies Captain, Seniors Captain and to our Junior Academy.

Captain's Welcome

To all members from Tony Kujawa, Club Captain for 2021.

It’s my pleasure and honour to be your Captain for 2021.  Let’s hope as we approach a “new normal” that golf at Cumberwell will be one of our main topics of conversation rather than lockdowns and restrictions.

We all expect that some restrictions will apply but we trust these will be relatively minor compared to our 2020 experiences.

The club prides itself on listening to its members, so if you’ve an idea or an issue don’t let it wither. Approach Ali James, the club manager, or if you prefer contact either me or Kevin Philp my vice-captain, we’ll get back to you straight away.  Kevin or I are at the club most days and we’ll try and to make ourselves visible so please say hello.  I will write a regular Captain’s bulletin which will give you the chance to have your say and enable us to get important messages to you.  

My year coincides with the introduction of the World Handicap System.  The WHS seeks to make golf handicaps easier to understand and obtain.  So if you are one of the many golfers at CPGC who never got a handicap then find out from the pro-shop how to get one.  To all of us with handicaps remember the more acceptable scores we put in the more accurate our handicap indexes will be.

Once you have a handicap or if you’ve never played in club competitions then why not have a go in 2021.  Throughout the season, which starts in April, you’ll find numerous competitions to enter.  They are all advertised on the club’s website and you can enter on-line. If you would like to play competitive golf during the week (and if you are eligible) why not join our thriving Ladies’, Seniors’ or Juniors’ Sections. Depending on demand in the summer we’ll also arrange a few early evening competitions.

With a full membership and with more people wanting to play golf then it is essential that we complete our rounds in under the 4 hours allowed at CPGC.  That’s why in 2021 our main aim is to make sure that every member knows about and plays Ready Golf.  Ready Golf is not rushing it’s common sense and thinking about players behind us.

We’ll expand on the details in our bulletins but a good first learning point for everyone is: Find and play your ball (if safe) before helping others to look for theirs. If it’s not safe be ready to play. Ready Golf applies EVERYWHERE on the golf course, on the tees, on the fairways and on the greens.

Appropriately, given the trials and tribulations of 2020 my Charity is the one Mark Hynes chose in 2020 The Royal United Hospital Forever Friends Appeal. The RUH in Bath has been a friend in need to many in the Club and their families. Also the NHS is very personal to me, my youngest daughter is a senior sister in the A&E Department at the RUH, my sister is a nursing lecturer and my mother was a nurse.

Events to raise funds for the appeal will include the Captain’s Drive-in in late March, a Captain’s challenge in June, the Captain’s Weekend in July, and a special event in late August.

Finally, I would like to say thank you to the James family for appointing me as your Captain for 2021.  I’m looking forward to working with them, John Jacobs and his pro-shop team and all the members to make 2021 a good one for everyone at CPGC. 

If you would like to discover more about what Cumberwell Golf Club has to offer, I or our Captain Elect, Kevin Philp, would love to hear from you. You can contact us on captain@cumberwellpark.com.

Lady Captain's Welcome

 

Welcome to Cumberwell Park Ladies Section

My name is Val Ogilvie-Robb and I look forward to being your Captain for 2020/2021.

We are very keen to encourage prospective members to join us, and so we take particular care to give extra consideration to all new  members, especially beginners, who may be apprehensive about joining, as it can be a daunting experience. To that end, we  arrange ‘welcome’ sessions, especially during the summer months and we  provide a comprehensive Welcome Pack.

We have a large Ladies Section, numbering some 170 regular players  of all ages, which provides a good mix of abilities.
Whatever your level of expertise,we have an experienced professional  team led by John Jacobs, who provides individual and group lessons.
The wide range of  membership options also makes Cumberwell an excellent choice.

Our Ladies playing day is on a Monday, and there is a range of competitions - from fun to medals and trophies. If 9 holes are sufficient, our ‘9 hole’ group plays every first and third Monday during the season.

As well as the Ladies competition schedule, there are also mixed and team competitions arranged within the Club. Further to that, we also have a Scratch League Team and a Handicap League Team and enter both into the County Scratch and Handicap Knockouts. A less formal playing schedule is available in our friendly fixtures against 9 other Wiltshire clubs.
In fact, there really is something for everyone.

Throughout the years that I have been a member, I have seen it grow and evolve into a top quality Golf Club, and I am proud to belong to such a great facility.

The Club encompasses everything one might want. Our selection of courses, 4 X 9 holes plus a Par 3, means that no-one need ever be bored of playing the same 18 - it’s all mix and match. Additionally, we have excellent practice facilities - a short game area and a large outdoor and undercover driving range.

All these amenities are provided by the James family who work tirelessly to keep the course and Clubhouse in top condition.  As they are always on hand at the Club, it does give one a sense of belonging and inclusion. The large Clubhouse offers everything from take-aways to full restaurant service. We are, indeed, fortunate to belong to such a progressive club, with even more ongoing plans for further expansion.

It has been a difficult year with the Covid restrictions, but we look forward to resuming our planned schedule for 2021 and would be delighted if you were to join us.

My chosen charity for 2020/2021 is Julia’s House Hospice Care for Wiltshire and Dorset, a cause which I fully promote, not only because it is local, but also provides vital support and care to so many children and their families, both in the Hospice and in the home.

Welcome to the Senior's Section

My name is Peter Palframan and I look forward to being your Captain for 2020/2021.

I feel extremely honoured to be the Seniors Captain for the coming year and thank those who encouraged me to stand as we have an experienced and committed committee who cover the roles of regular Tuesday competitions, trophy competitions, friendly matches, Club Open, Away Days, etc

For information, I joined Cumberwell Park Golf Club on 15th January 2015 and joined the Seniors Section the same day having never been a member of any other golf club before.  What appealed to me about the Seniors Section was the breadth of senior member’s backgrounds, life experiences, personalities, but most importantly the warmth, banter, and welcoming approach to new members.

There are currently 249 Senior’s Section members and regular Tuesday events attract around 100 Seniors.   Conventional Golf Club roll ups are a thing of the past, as we use the latest App technology for signing up for events and competitions on Intelligent Golf (Ig) with allocated tee times.

We have a very active Friendly Fixtures calendar encompassing 32 matches Home and Away, and encourage all seniors to participate, plus we also have a Winter league squad which has a good blend of new and old faces, plus in normal times we have a Spring and Autumn away day which attracts around 70 seniors.

My chosen charity for 2020/2021 is the Motor Neurone Disease Charity in fond memory of one of our Seniors John Dunford.

The Seniors Section is also extremely well supported by The Pro-shop under the leadership of John Jacobs and his team, plus Ali James and the family, who have been so supportive and generous in terms of support and finance to the section over the years.

If you would like any further information about Cumberwell Park Seniors Section, please contact me at seniorscaptain@cumberwellpark.com.

What is the Junior Academy?

The junior academy is a thriving learning environment for up and coming juniors that are serious about progressing and improving their golf. The academy is a relaxed learning environment that is split up into 2 different sessions based on age.

Each session will focus on a specific skill within long game, short game and on the course, and a game-based activity will follow the coaching element. 

The academy is run by 3 PGA professionals ensuring all the children get excellent coaching and all the adequate help they need. Throughout the year there are many competitions for the juniors including eclectic on course scores and most improved players. 

The sessions run in conjunction with term time and are run after school on a Monday starting in March and running through to October.
The academy is a step up from the Junior Roll up sessions and is a great stepping stone into Junior Membership. 

We host roll ups each weekend on Saturdays and Sundays FOR £5 (equipment provided).

Please contact us for enquiries about joining Cumberwell, the academy and half term fun days
