Thank you for electing me as your President for the next three years: it is a great honour. I would like to thank Tony Crawley for proposing me to succeed him as President and to thank him on your behalf for steering the club in the right direction in the last three years. His is some act to follow -
Members of L’Ancresse Golf Club & The Royal Guernsey Golf Club owe a massive thank you to the gentlemen who, over a number of years and through dedication and hard work, have managed to secure a good deal over the lease of the land. Going forward we all can be assured that there will be golf on L’Ancresse common for a number of years ahead, for which I know we are very grateful. The club has been served by a very good committee. I look forward to working with our new committee in 2017 and thank all of the committee members for what they have done in the last few years.
There is a real feeling of progress and development at the club. We continue to look forward with new facilities, and the building of a trolley chalet is an excellent example of forward planning that will have multiple benefits – both aesthetic and practical.
Our thanks for this must go to the gentlemen on the house committee and Richard Vaudin for all the hard work they have put in to make this possible.
Congratulations to Brian Le Tissier on his year as Captain. I have no doubt that he found it both busy and enjoyable in equal measure – thank you for a good year. My congratulations, also, to our new Captain Pete Le Sauvage. Having worked with Pete for a few years I’m sure he will be an excellent Captain who will always put the club and our members first. I look forward to working with Pete in his year as Captain.
Importantly, I offer the warmest of welcomes to our new members. I hope you will enjoy your golf with us at L’Ancresse. We are delighted to have you join our club.
We owe Ken in the office and Laila and her staff real gratitude for the work they continue to do thank you very much, I know that it is appreciated by us all. Both Ken and Laila will be leaving the posts and we wish them all the best in the future.
To all our sponsors I offer our sincere thanks. Your continued support along with the constant hard work of Brian Queru (our competition secretary) has resulted in our competitions being regularly well supported. It is my hope that we can mirror the high participation in those competitions with higher attendance at the presentations at the club.
Finally, my wish for 2017 is that you all enjoy good health and good golf.
Enjoying our Golf since 1895
