The Golf Club
New Captains for 2018
Men’s Captain, Paul Roberts, joined the club as a junior member with his brother Matthew in 1983. “It is a great honour to be Men’s Captain of Rothley Park G.C. in a year when we will see major changes on both the course and in the structure and management of the club. These are exciting times. We have attracted a significant number of new members and I look forward to building on our established foundations and welcoming all our new members into both social and competitive golf, such that they feel truly part of our great club in every way.
The 2018 Ladies Captain is Kim Turner. Kim has been a member of Rothley Park for over twenty years. “Rothley Park has one of the largest ladies sections in the county and is attracting many younger ladies that I believe is due to forward thinking by the club. My personal aim this year is to encourage more people to enjoy the game especially children. I also enjoy the huge social aspect of the club; we have a great variety of events.
Senior Men’s Captain is Anthony Johnson. He joined Rothley Park in 2012 along with his brother Eric who will be Senior Men’s Captain next year. “I’ve been playing golf for about 20 years. I’ve always admired Rothley Park as a club and was delighted when the opportunity arose to join.“Playing with the seniors really is such a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Games, however, are always competitive and can get serious at times, but the main emphasis is on enjoying the experience of playing golf.''
This year’s Junior Captain is sixteen-year-old Ben Spillane. Ben lives in Rothley and is a student at Loughborough Grammar School. Ben is an excellent golfer and joined Rothley Park when he was nine. He will be an enthusiastic captain of the club’s thriving junior section.
