Club Captain 2021 – Doug Cormack
The Captain for the 2021 season is Doug Cormack.
Doug served the Club as Club Vice Captain in 2020 and has now taken on the role of Club Captain. 2020 has been a very strange time with limited golf and Club social events taking place due to the Coronavirus, but he is anticipating a more prosperous year in 2021.
He genuinely believes that Fulford Heath is one of the best clubs in the area – a combination of a fantastic course in a great location and a growing membership and it is with the support of these members which make the Club the success it is.
Enjoy your golf this season and Doug looks forward to playing with as many of you as possible over the year.
There are a number of teams that the men are able to take part in. These are listed below together with the captains of each of them:-
- Scratch Team Ross Holmes
- West Midlands League Paul Walters
- B Team Tony Denman
- Seniors Keith French
- Junior Captain Morley Gill
Are you interested in playing in any of the Teams to represent our Club?
Captained by Keith French, the Seniors matches are played of a morning against Clubs around the Midlands, some at Fulford some away. Details of the matches are on the noticeboard in the hallway leading to the Mens changing room (at the end, on the left as you are about to go in). The format is a matchplay betterball competition, in excellent company. It is an great way to meet other members and play some wonderful courses.
The only stipulation to play in the Seniors team is an age one, as the name suggests, as you have to be over 55 to get in. Apart from that you need to be available and keen to participate. Then it’s just a case of putting your name down on the list telling the Captain you are interested in playing and getting picked for the team. As you will appreciate the games are popular but the people running the team try to accommodate everyone that puts their name down through the season.
Very similar to the Seniors team but there is no age limit and they play in the afternoon. This year’s B Team Captain is Tony Denman, helped by his B Team Vice Captain Trevor Reed.
Again they play Clubs around the Midlands, some at home, some away and like the Seniors all matches are played with good humour and some will to win. They have had members from 21 to 90 and from 6 handicap to 28, so if you would like to represent the Club in the B Team take a look at the same notice board, telephone either of the people running the team, email them or catch either when they are in the Club.
Ross Holmes runs the Scratch Team and as the name suggests you need to be a good golfer as the handicaps range from scratch to 5. So if your game is going well be ready for the call. As with the other teams they play Clubs from across the Midlands but the results count so you need to have that urge to win.
Another League team this year ably run by Paul Walters under very similar conditions as the Scratch Team. So if your handicap is heading down into the single figures then you might well get a call from either of these two Captains with a request to see if you are interested in playing. The normal handicap range for the West Midands League is between 5 and 16.
Both teams are well run, have had some significant success and enjoy some excellent golf and courses.
