New Reddish Vale Golf Club captain Tony Barnes

Tony Barnes is looking forward to the coming year as captain of Reddish Vale Golf Club.

The 10-handicapper has been a member of for the past seven years because ‘it has fantastic greens, is a good test of golf and has a very friendly atmosphere’.

Tony, who is an engineering director for a large window blind company, said: “My other favourite courses are Trearddur Bay in Anglesey, where I have just purchased a bungalow, and Bramall Park.

“My favourite hole at Reddish is the famous 16th as it suits my fade and it is where I won by first board competition at Reddish Vale taking the foursomes title with a very good partner and was my highlight in golf to date.”

Tony’s charities for the year are The Dog Rescue Centre and Dogs For The Blind.
