A new president and three new captains have been appointed at Bramall Park Golf Club.

Former lady captain Janet Brierley takes up the club president role – a first for the club – while Simon Bedford has become 2018 men’s captain with Jo Coutts as lady captain. Alex Wilcock has been elected junior captain.

Janet, the first woman to become club president at Bramall Park, said: “It is a great honour.”

They took up their posts at the club’s AGM, replacing 2017 president Tim Greenwood, men’s captain Roger Souter, lady captain Francesca Swarbrick, and junior captain Niall Curwen.

Simon said:  “I am delighted to be this year’s gents’ captain at BPGC.

“We have much to look forward to – particularly our open and charity events, but also some great club golf played on a very friendly and welcoming club course. Should be fun’

Attracting new female members is a special focus for the club in 2018, according to Jo: “We have come up with some very attractive deals to bring ladies into membership this year – whatever level you are – for a limited period only – so if you have been thinking about joining a club do get in touch.

“There is a thriving ladies section, plenty of good golf of all standards and a great social life with fantastic health benefits.”

Bramall Park has an active junior group and a‘professional’ team led by Craig Daggitt.
