Welcome to the L’Ancresse Golf Club

Message from the President

Dear Members

As I enter the last year of my term as President, it is an appropriate time to reflect on the work that has been done by, and for, the Members of the L'Ancresse Golf Club. It has certainly been a busy year for me, but I am fortunate that I have a good committee, who have made that work and my role a lot easier. For their support, I thank them.

We have a full membership and, in these testing times for golf, not many golf clubs can say that. However, we must not be complacent, and much of the credit fo our full membership must go to Kevin Masterton for his work in ensuring that joining enquires are followed up promptly. Kevin has had to step down from his job in the office, and we owe him a Big Thank You, and wish him well.

Ken Tucknott has also done a good job with the finances last year, assisting Mike Owen. Our balance sheet shows that again, we are in the black and secure from a financial perspective. I thank them both.

To past Captain Keith Dye, you have done a great job as our Captain of 2018, giving us some funny times, both on Island and away. The results didn't always go our way, but you have done a great job representing our Club with humour and honesty.

I'm sure that Micky Boot will be an excellent Captain. He has the Club at heart and will ensure the standards of the Club will be upheld. In Alan Mahy, he has a Vice Captain with considerable knowledge of our Club. I am certain they will make a good team and I wish them an enjoyable term of office.

Our bar staff work extremely hard and they are very popular with visitors and members alike. Thank you Iveta and your staff.

I would like to offer a belated welcome to Stewart Evans, as Club Manager - early signs show, he has settled in.

I offer a warm welcome to all new members and hope that you enjoy golf with us.

On a downside, we have lost some Committee members, so would like to mention Colin Bourgaize, Pete Le Sauvage and Gary Darling, all of whom have worked extremely hard for the benefit of the Club and putting in a lot of unnoticed hours. Thank you on behalf of L'Ancresse Golf Club.

As this year goes by, we will be planning for the Club's 125th Anniversary - a significant milestone. Vice Captain Alan Mahy is chairing this committee, and I would invite Members with any ideas, as to how we can make this a special occasion, to please contact him directly - charmardi@cwgsy.net.

To Danny Blondel, congratulations on winning the Island Title and going on to win the CI Final.

Congratulations to all our Members who were selected to represent Guernsey in 2018.

Good health to everyone in 2019

Tony Blondel

President, 2019
