Welcome from the Captain and Lady Captain
A warm welcome to Willesley Park Golf Club.
I am very proud and privileged to have been asked to be Captain of our wonderful golf club this year. I have been a member for 19 years and never during that time did I ever think that I would represent Willesley Park Golf Club as Club Captain.
There are many aspects to our Club, not least the course which has undergone a transformation over the last year or two with regard to the presentation of the course as a whole, particularly the greens. We also have an extensive ongoing bunker renovation programme to ensure we maintain our position as one of the premier golf clubs in the whole of Leicestershire. The Greens Team is doing a magnificent job!
Visitors, societies and private functions are always welcome to the course and clubhouse. Our course is set in the heart of the National Forest, with stunning views of the Leicestershire countryside.
The club diary is packed with golfing and social activities and I particularly look forward to the Captain’s Social Team matches which are hugely enjoyable and to supporting our Men’s Scratch Team as they strive to follow up on their promotion last year.
My chosen charity this year is Prostate Cancer UK and along with Lady Captain Gill, we have many events planned and hope to raise as much money as possible for our Captains’ charities this year.
As Club Captain, I, would like to offer a warm welcome to all members, visitors, friends and guests to Willesley Park Golf Club.
We hope you enjoy your golfing experience with us at Willesley Park.
Very best wishes
Lady Captain’s Welcome 2023
Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit the Willesley Park Golf Club (WPGC) website and for visiting this page.
I am delighted to be the Lady Captain for 2023, having gained eight years under my belt as a playing member at WPGC. I first started playing golf about 18 years ago. It was an honour and a privilege to be offered this role and I am very much looking forward to my year as Lady Captain.
Whether you are new to golf or looking to join Willesley Park, then please do not hesitate to call and see us for a chat, we have a great parkland course here, with many interesting and challenging holes.
We have a strong lady membership with handicaps at all levels, represented at a County level, and have an academy course for those trying their hand at the game or if you just want to get back into golf!
Whilst working in their role, Club Captains choose a charity and work throughout the year raising money towards them. My chosen charity for 2023 is Glebe House. They are a small independent charity formed in 1983 and provide flexible services for people with learning disabilities and autism. Glebe House offers a wide range of services for people of all ages in Leicestershire, which are all aimed at improving the lives of the people they support and the lives of those who support them.
I look forward to meeting you either on or off the course!
