A message from Mr Captain 2022
As Captain of the Buxton & High Peak Golf Club it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to this section of the website.
I started here as a junior, other sporting interests followed but I was always going to return to golf and I have been a member now for the last 25 years. Throughout all my other sporting interests golf is by far the most challenging, sometimes even rewarding and at these times there is no better sport to play.
It is a huge honour and privilege to have been elected Captain of this fantastic Golf Club and I look forward to promoting the Club throughout 2022.
For 2022 there is no Lady Captain which is a huge disappointment both personally and for the golf club but I will endeavour to work with the Ladies section so that we can organise teams for mixed events and other competitions during the year. We also hold a number of open competitions for men, ladies and seniors so please visit our website for details and entry forms.
The Club is known as the friendly Club and this is shown within the Membership both during and after play with many friendships being formed. The introduction of our new Professional, Carl Cross is a real positive and together with the new teaching studio and the six hole par 3 Academy course our Golf Club is set up perfectly for both beginners and existing players and for teaching and playing Golf. There is a focus on increasing the Junior membership and weekly tuition is now available.
The course continues to improve under our Head Green keeper Steve Norton and his team with bunker improvements amongst one of many projects planned for 2022. The course is suitable for all categories of golfers to enjoy and is generally open throughout the year, only snow preventing us from playing.
Buxton & High Peak Golf Club also offers fantastic hospitality with the Après Golf a must. The catering under the leadership of Stuart and Rawlston is of a excellent standard and hopefully social events can be reintroduced for 2022 after the problems caused by Covid. I look forward to meeting you all and enjoying a drink or two, food or both after the game.
In closing I would like to welcome you all to our Golf Club, I know you will enjoy both the course and the hospitality, and as such I am greatly honoured to be Captain of this Golf Club and wish you all the best for 2022.
