Welcome from the Captain and Lady Captain
A warm welcome to Willesley Park Golf Club.
I feel very privileged and happy to be elected as Men’s Captain of Willesley Park Golf Club after being a Member for 35 enjoyable years. I am looking forward to a wonderful and busy year in office.
The course is in better condition than I have ever seen it with a great amount of work having been done this past three years by our hard working Greens Team and volunteers. The greens have benefitted from a new technique which involves the injection of sand into them. The bunkers are being renovated and a number of new footpaths have been installed.
Our course looks at it very best in the spring when the bluebells are in bloom and in autumn when the trees show their many colours. Willesley Park Golf Club is in the heart of the National Forest close to the town of Ashby de la Zouch and we warmly welcome visiting parties for golfing and social functions.
My chosen charity this year is The British Heart Foundation and along with Lady Captain, Laura, we have a number of events organised throughout the year which we hope you will support.
As Men’s Captain, I wish all our Members, guests, visitors and friends an enjoyable time playing golf at the beautiful Willesley Park Golf Club.
John Dumelow, Men’s Captain
Lady Captain’s Welcome
Our Club was established in 1920 and is one of the most beautiful and challenging parkland course in the county. I have been a Member of the Club for the past ten years and was delighted to be asked to be Lady Captain for the forthcoming year.
There are over 70 Lady Members who play on a regular basis and we offer a comprehensive diary of medal, stableford and fun competitions. We have 11 ladies friendly matches with other clubs in the area throughout the year. Our mixed golf section is well supported and again we play friendly mixed matches. We also play in regional and national tournaments such as The Taskers Trophy and England Golf Trust as well as various county competitions.
Our scratch team plays in the first division of the Leicestershire and Rutland Golf Union and our handicap team play in the second division and will be fighting hard to get back into division 1 next year.
We are immensely proud of our top lady players who represent the County at various levels and who have won the County Shield for the past 5 years. This year our ladies also won the Veterans Cup, Baxter Trophy (mixed competition) and the Russell Trophy.
We have signed up to the Women in Golf Charter and are working hard to encourage girls and women of all abilities to join our Club.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like more information about our Club or would like to visit and play the course. Please email: email@example.com
