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

Captain's Welcome

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 10 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 Captain’s 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 5th October. 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 or wish 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.

Lady Captain's Welcome

Welcome to the Cumberwell Park Ladies Section from Sue Cooper (Lady Captain).

I would like to extend to you all a very warm welcome to Cumberwell Park, is a flourishing, vibrant and inclusive club. We continue to thrive and grow as a Ladies Section alongside the seniors and juniors as part of a large Golf Club.

A friendly welcome awaits visitors, guests and any lady who is interested in playing or learning to play golf. We are keen to encourage new members who are always welcome. The Ladies Section provides a comprehensive ‘Welcome Pack’ and offer ‘Welcome’ sessions every 2-3 weeks, particularly in the summer months for new members.

Whatever your level of ability, we have an experienced group of professionals led by John Jacobs, who run extensive group and individual lessons for beginners as well as improving or established players needing to develop, extend or refine their skills.

The wide and flexible range of membership options makes Cumberwell an excellent choice. The Ladies play regularly on a Monday morning with a mixture of social and competitive golf to suit all abilities with regular medal and stableford with an ‘alternative’ day at the weekend. For members who feel 9 holes are sufficient, a ‘9 Hole’ group plays every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month during the season. Competitions are available across the Club as well as mixed and team comps.

The James’ family owners have a created a well-established and highly respected Golf Club. Their vision and innovation underpin a thriving and progressive golf club.

I have been a member for 24 years and feel privileged to have the opportunity to play at such a high-quality golf facility offering a varied mixture of 36 holes, a 9-hole Par 3 course and superb extensive practice and driving range facilities. We have something for players of all standards.

The ladies run two Scratch Teams in the Wiltshire League and a newly promoted, Handicap League Team as well as friendly matches with 9 other Wiltshire Clubs.

I am honoured to be Lady Captain at Cumberwell Park for 2018/19 on our 25th Anniversary year. My chosen charities are; “Above and Beyond” in aid of Bristol Heart Institute and Bath’s RUH new Cancer Centre. Both of which are close to my heart.

Working with my Vice Captain, Helen Walker and Committee, I hope to continue the open and relaxed welcome to new members and visitors and look forward to meeting as many of you as possible in the coming twelve months. If you require any information about Cumberwell Park and the Ladies Section, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Welcome to the Senior's Section

A warm welcome to the Seniors’ Section of Cumberwell Park Golf Club from Section Captain – Tony Kujawa

Cumberwell Park is a friendly, welcoming club and the Men’s Senior Section aims to be the same. With over 230 members, our goal is to provide the opportunity to play competitive golf in a friendly atmosphere. You are eligible to join us if you are a club member aged 55 or over.

To join please complete an application form, available on-line, at reception or speak to any member of the Committee.

The Club reserves Tuesday mornings for Seniors’ 'Roll-Up' competitions. Section members can turn up in a two-hour window to play a mix of individual or team competitions. The “Roll-Up” presents a great opportunity to play with different players each week. Some events are pre-drawn and played with a rolling or shotgun start. Often, there is an opportunity to compete for specific trophies using a varied combination of our four, nine-hole courses.

As well as the Tuesday competitions, every year we organise 5 Matchplay KO competitions and play over 30 summer interclub matches, home and away. The interclub matches present an opportunity for all members to play at other clubs and meet their members. Lower handicapped golfers can also play in our successful interclub Winter League team (maximum handicap allowance 18).

In July the club hosts a popular Seniors’ Open which draws players from far and wide. With Away Days and golfing/social events throughout the year, the Section offers a rich variety of activities for all. You can see our entire programme via The Intelligent Golf App, on the Seniors’ Notice board or on the club’s website

To play in Senior Section competitions you need an active handicap of 36 or below. However, we encourage all new Section members of any ability to join our welcome group, which plays every Thursday morning. This group gives you an introduction into the friendly world of Seniors’ golf.

Before you turn up to play for the first time please email Steve Wilson (Tuesdays) or Jeremy Vivian (Thursdays) and we’ll arrange a welcome. Contact us at seniorscaptain@cumberwellpark.com.

My chosen charity is The National Osteoporosis Society and I hope to organise several fund-raising events for this cause. Osteoporosis, affects 1 in 2 women and 2 in 5 men.

I look forward to meeting you soon.
Regards

Tony Kujawa - Seniors Captain

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
