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

Captain's Welcome

To all members from Kevin Philp, Club Captain 2022.

It is a privilege for me to be your Captain for 2022.

I’ve been a member since 1995 and have seen enormous changes over the years at Cumberwell Park, with the huge increase in golfing facilities that are now available and the sheer size of the membership. At 1,650 playing members we are one of the best-supported golf clubs in the South West as well as being regarded as one of the best courses, being awarded 4 stars in Golf Worlds Top Courses in Britain.

I play golf on a Tuesday, Friday and Sunday and will also be taking part regularly in the majority of Saturday competitions. Alongside me is my Club Captain Elect Andrew Lucas who is also ever-present at the club and we will endeavour to make ourselves available to members. Please come and say hello, as we’d be delighted to meet you.

I would say from my experiences from playing golf around the UK that we are one of the most professional and friendly clubs around, in its approach to members and visitors alike. From John Jacobs and his Pro-Shop team, Ali James and his management, the administration staff, the bar and restaurant team and the Starters – all are extremely helpful and courteous and make everyone feel welcome. They will try to make your experience at Cumberwell a first class one!

Over the last 5 years I’ve played a lot of competitive golf against other clubs and on numerous occasions when playing a home match the opposing team players have complimented the fantastic ambiance of the course, its general up keep and how good the greens are playing. So a big thanks to Matthew James and his team for all their hard work in creating Cumberwell into a great golfing experience.

I’d like to personally thank Tony Kujawa on being a great Club Captain and ambassador for the club in 2021. With the Covid Lockdown it was a very difficult year for everyone at Cumberwell as it had a huge impact on the playing and social aspects of club life. His fortitude, enthusiasm and good humour helped in these difficult times always being there to support club members with issues they may have and also in raising significant funds for his NHS Charity.

My charity this year will be Julia’s House, which provides award-winning free care for the most seriously ill children across Wiltshire. It is a relatively young charity being established in 2015 and with no funding from the Government relies entirely on voluntary donations for the £1.5 million required to run all their vital care services and hospice each year. Following the superb efforts of Val Ogilvy-Robb and the Ladies Section last year – I want to carry on their great work and make as much money as possible to support this great charitable institution. Hopefully you’ll participate and contribute to all the events both golfing and social that we will be running in the year to support this fantastic local service.

Alongside Helen Harrison (Ladies Captain) and Steve Wilson (Seniors Captain) we’ll endeavour to make ourselves available to listen to the views of the members and make representation to the Club. We are here to represent you and you will find us all open and responsive on the issues/ideas that you have.

Lets all look forward to a fantastic golfing year in 2022.

Lady Captain's Welcome

Hello and Welcome to the Ladies Section of Cumberwell Park Golf Club. My name is Helen Harrison and I am delighted to be your Captain for 2021/22. As captain, I work with a lovely team of committee ladies to ensure that the golf, fun and friendship elements of being a lady golfer at Cumberwell are as good as they 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, whether you have just joined, or are looking for a club to join, maybe you are new to golf or looking to change your club, it is our mission to make Cumberwell ladies your best choice.

We have a large and expanding 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 throughout the year, when we hold a range of competitions, from fun competitions to qualifying stablefords, medals and trophies, plus most recently, mornings to just come and play with other ladies. In addition to the ladies competition schedule, we have mixed and team events arranged by the club. The ladies run one 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. The club also run an ‘Academy’ which offers new and improving golfers access to the practice areas and the par 3, reduced rates on the other courses and a course of lessons prior to taking up membership. We are keen to ensure that ladies who experience the academy and then wish to become members find a welcoming and supportive environment in which to progress with 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 as lady captain I have the privilege of choosing a charity for the ladies section to support. My chosen charity for 2021/22 is ‘Fight for Sight’ who fund research into tackling the leading causes of sight loss across the UK. Their research projects into glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy are taking them closer to new treatments for these leading causes of blindness.

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.

Welcome to the Senior's Section

My name is Steve Wilson and I look forward to being your Captain for 2021/2022.

I feel extremely honoured to be the Seniors Captain for the coming year and thank those who encouraged me to stand. We have an experienced and committed committee who cover the roles of our weekly Tuesday competitions, trophy competitions, friendly matches, Club Open, Away Days & various other events throughout the year

Having been retired from 44 years in the hospitality industry, I joined Cumberwell Park Golf Club on 2nd May 2016. I had never been a member of any other golf club before, I soon realised the benefits of joining the Seniors’ Section so I pretty much joined straight away. What appealed to me about the Seniors Section was being able to be part of a group of likeminded golfers with varying backgrounds & personalities, but most importantly the warmth, banter, and welcoming approach to new members.

I joined the New Seniors Members Society which runs every Thursday. The aim of this society is to help new section members meet other new section members and play a social round of golf.

 I was soon encouraged to join the seniors’ committee in the Roll-Up Secretary position by Mark Hynes (the seniors captain at that time) & steadily progressed to my current role. This certainly helped me learn about the running’s of a golf club so I would like to take this opportunity to encourage seniors to join the committee if you feel you have the necessary skill set, it’s not for everyone I know but I have a fantastic supportive, committee with a wealth of experience & we make nice cakes too for our monthly meetings.

I am also a member of two weekly groups & held the position of Starter for two years which was another great way of meeting other golfers & sections

There are currently 249 Senior’s Section members and regular Tuesday events attract around 90 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 have a Winter League squad which has a good blend of new and old faces, we also arrange Spring and Autumn away days which attracts around 70 seniors.

My chosen charity for 2021/2022 is MPN Voice

MPNs (myeloproliferative neoplasms) are diseases that affect how blood cells are produced in our bodies.

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.

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
