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

Captain's Welcome

To all members from Andy Lucas, Club Captain 2023.

It is a privilege for me to be your Captain for 2023.

Firstly, a warm welcome to all members and guests to Cumberwell Park, one of the best and friendliest golf establishments in the South West currently with around 1650 members.

My name is Andrew Lucas and I’m extremely honoured to be your captain for 2023. I joined Cumberwell just after it opened some 28 years ago and had not played much golf prior to this. It soon became very addictive and I wanted to play more often and improve every time I played. Fast forward several years and I now play off 6, or I should say… I try to. I currently play 3-4 times a week with several of the club groups, including the seniors – it’s thoroughly enjoyable and a great way of making friends as well.

Cumberwell has dramatically changed during my time at the club, with investment from the James family, Cumberwell has 36 holes, 9 hole par three and outstanding practice facilities. All of this and another 9 holes currently under construction and due to open in 2023 – making this one of the best clubs in the South West. These outstanding facilities, combined with the support of the Proshop, lead by John Jacobs, Cumberwell provides an excellent opportunity for any golfer to enjoy and improve their game.

I would like to say a big thank you to the outgoing captain, Kevin Philp. Kevin has done a great job supporting the club during his time as captain, whilst raising money for his charity, Julia’s House. I still cannot believe he played 90 holes in one day - rest assured I will not be attempting to better this.

This year I will be working closely with the other Captains; Judith Groves - Ladies Captain; and Andy Christie - Seniors Captain. My charity and the clubs’ charity of choice will be Alzheimers Support. In choosing a charity I wanted to support an organisation that was relatable, local and gave me confidence that our contribution would make a difference.

I’m sure that many of you today have relatives or friends who have also been affected by Alzheimers. Alzheimers Support is a Wiltshire based charity, with centres in Trowbridge, Devizes and Warminster, but offering support throughout the county.

A diagnosis of dementia should not mean an immediate end to your usual way of life, but many families will need specialist support to help adjust to the challenges Alzheimers can present. Alzheimer’s Support provides a range of practical services to improve life and promote independence for those living at home with dementia in Wiltshire and for their family and carers. 

Hopefully I’ll see you all at our golfing and social events, both participating and contributing, that we’ll be running throughout the year to support this fantastic local charity.

I hope during my time as Club Captain, I can support you all during 2023. We are here to represent and support you - the members, so please do not hesitate to contact me or the other captains with any issues or ideas you may have.  I would also like to thank Robin Allen for agreeing to by my Vice Captain and look forward to working with him in the forthcoming year.

Lady Captain's Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Ladies Section of Cumberwell Park Golf Club.

My name is Judith Groves and I am delighted to be your Captain for 2022/23. Firstly, I would like to say a massive thank you to last year’s Captain, Helen Harrison. Becoming captain after 2 years of covid restrictions she did an enormous amount to reintroduce fun and cohesion back into the Ladies’ section.

My overriding aim this year is to continue what she did by ensuring that the  golf, fun and friendship elements of being a lady golfer at Cumberwell continue. And with the help of the lovely team of committee ladies ensure that the Ladies Section is as inclusive as it can be.

Whatever your level of golf or your experience within the club, we will always welcome your input to help us continue to build a strong progressive ladies section. Whether you have been a member since the club started back in 1994 or you have just joined, it is our mission to make Cumberwell ladies your best choice.

We have a large ladies section, currently numbering some 200 members, made up of ladies with a wide range of abilities. Accordingly there are many options to get the most out of your golf. Our ladies playing day is on a Monday when we hold a range of competitions, from fun competitions to qualifying stablefords, medals and trophies,  In addition to the ladies competition schedule, we have mixed and team events arranged by the club.

The ladies run two scratch league team and one handicap league team in the Wiltshire Ladies League Competition. Further to that, we enter teams into both the county scratch and handicap knockouts. In addition, and open to all abilities, is a programme of friendly matches against other clubs, where competition is tempered by a more sociable, relaxed approach.

We also have a Monday 9 hole group, who welcome any lady who feels, for whatever reason, that 9 holes is sufficient at that time. It is an ideal start for anyone who is new to golf or to the club and who may wish to find their feet in a smaller group, before progressing to 18 holes.

We are keen that new lady members find a welcoming and supportive environment in which to play their golf. I will always be on hand to meet and take new ladies out on the course, there are regular ‘new to Cumberwell’ sessions where members take out new ladies, not to mention the 9 hole group for you to join. There should be no reason to feel apprehensive about joining us. Flexible membership categories make it possible to tailor the cost of membership to the amount and times of the week you want to play. 

At whatever level you want to enjoy your golf, the club offers excellent facilities. The choice of four challenging 9 hole courses and a par 3 course can be mixed and matched to create 18, ensuring you will not tire of the same 18 holes each time you play. Practice facilities include a short game area and a large outdoor and undercover driving range. We are supported by an experienced professional team led John Jacobs who are available for individual or group lessons, using the latest technology.

Throughout the year, there are various charitable initiatives and this year I am delighted that me, as Lady Captain, Andy Christie, Seniors Captain and Andy Lucas Club Captain will be working together to raise funds for Wiltshire Alzheimer’s support.

If you have any questions or want to discover more about the ladies section, I would love to hear from you. To all our current lady members, please communicate with me or any of the committee – only by your comments, ideas and input can we ensure you enjoy your experience at Cumberwell to the full.

If you would like any further information about Cumberwell Park and the Ladies Section, please don't hesitate to contact me at  ladycaptain@cumberwellpark.com

Welcome to the Senior's Section

My name is Andy Christie and I am delighted to be the seniors captain for 2022/23, I’ve been a member at Cumberwell Park since 2002 but really only started playing golf when I retired and joined the seniors. We are very fortunate to have a very experienced committee and the organisation of the section events reflect this and the seniors section has over 250 members.

The seniors have a competition event every Tuesday, which members enter in advance via Ig. Typically, 70-90 play each Tuesday. There is a new seniors group that play on a Thursday morning, which is a great way of getting to know other new members and the regulars. We have a very active friendly fixtures calendar encompassing 32 matches, home and away, andduring 2022, 75 seniors took part in the friendly matches.

There is also the Winter League for those who want to play a more competitive brand of golf.

We arrange Spring and Autumn away days which attract around 70 seniors for a great fun day out.

Whatever level of golf you play at, Cumberwell Seniors has something for you.

During my year as captain, I’ll be raising funds for Alzheimers Support, like me, many of you will have relatives or friends who have been affected by Alzheimers. AS is a Wiltshire based charity providing one to one support and a huge variety of day care activities and they rely on donations for the majority of their funding.

Club captain Andy Lucas, Ladies captain Judith Groves and I will be working together throughout the year to raise a meaningful sum.

If you have any questions about the 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).
