Captain's Address - 2017/18 Season
Warrant Officer (RAF) Jamie Evans –CAPTAIN
It is a great honour and privilege to have been chosen as your Club Captain for 2017 and I would like to thank all members for putting their trust in me. In my role as Vice-Captain it was a truly a challenge to select the best Inter Club Team from so many golfers who were “on form” this season. I had faith in all players who were selected and very proud when we retained the Inter Club title for the 3rd year running.
Throughout Cyprus we are also known as a friendly and welcoming club, both for new members and visitors alike. I hope to build on this well-deserved reputation to help us attract more golfers both entitled and associate to join us and enjoy the club as we do. As your Club Captain & Club Champion I take seriously my responsibilities for maintaining the highest standards both on and off the golf course, to respect all members and their views and at the same time to make sure we move this great golf club forward.
We have a great team at the club and I welcome and congratulate all the new committee members that have been voted in today by you the members. Everyone involved on the committee, their aim is to continue improving the experience for all members. In particular, Steve Chapman, Mark Eaton and George (our Greens Team) are key to our continued success especially over the coming months with the challenge of installing 6 new astro turf greens. We are very fortunate in having the new Club Manager, Blue Turnpenny keeping us all updated with “Blue’s News from the Office” and Wille El-Fakir who has transformed the website on the team this season.
We are known for our excellent charity fundraising and members support has been magnificent over the years. In the coming year my chosen charity will be Pasykaf, a charity that provides palliative care to the terminally ill.
I am looking forward to serving as your Captain and along with your Committee we are determined to make 2017/18 season another great year at Episkopi Golf Club for all our members and guests.
Yours in Golf,
