ROBIN MACKNESS at the helm for 2018

Robin was elected Captain at the Club's AGM on 01 February after inheriting the vice-Captaincy last year rather earlier than he anticipated!

Robin was born in the East Midlands and has lived in Shropshire for most of the past 25 years. He is married with a daughter, Sarah, who is a middle distance runner and a son, Stewart, who is a single figure handicapper.

A chartered mechanical engineer by profession, he retired as Engineering Director for Caterpillar at their engines business in Peterborough after 37 years, having worked in Shrewsbury, Stafford and Shanghai in addition to Peterborough.

He was a twice a year golfer up until about 2005 when the bug bit and he became a more regular player when work commitments permitted. Since retirement he has played two or three times a week throughout the year, currrently playing in the Club weekend competitions, the C&BGA mid-week competitions and with the seniors.

He is the current holder of the Easter Cup and has represented the club in the Handicap League and in Friendly fixtures.

During 2018 Robin is hoping to reduce his handicap and enjoy playing a wide variety of courses in addition to working with President Dave, Ladies' Captain, Kath, Seniors Captain, Paul and Juniors' Captain, Ted to further the development of our Club.

2017-18 PRESIDENT - DAVE RALPHS

Dave has been a member of the Golf Club for 27 years and was Captain in 2008. He has enjoyed every bit of his time playing our two great courses.

Having seen many changes of ownership during his years of membership Dave is looking forward to working closely with the new owners who are investing heavily to improve the complex after many years of under investment by previous owners.

Dave, as Chairman of Opens for the past 6 years, knows how difficult it is for Clubs to keep afloat with reducing membership and he is committed to doing all he can to encourage new members to join us.

Outside of his golf, Dave is Chairman of the Shropshire Football Association having been a referee for over 30 years.

In addition, Dave has served as a magistrate for 20 years.
