THE AGM at Prest­bury Golf Club saw the long ser­vice given to the club by chair­man Arthur Dicken and club sec­re­tary and gen­eral man­ager Neville Young given due recog­ni­tion as they re­tired from their re­spec­tive po­si­tions af­ter work­ing to­gether for 14 years.

Arthur thanked Neville for his long and loyal ser­vice and pre­sented him with the club’s tra­di­tional en­graved sil­ver dish.

He then in­tro­duced David Holmes as the new Gen­eral Man­agerDavid comes from Royal Ash­down For­est GC is Sur­rey where he was the club sec­re­tary.

Arthur has served the club over the same 14-year pe­riod, first on the Gen­eral Com­mit­tee, then as Cap­tain and Pres­i­dent and for the past four years as Chair­man.

At the AGM he ob­served that the club con­tin­ues to be a suc­cess­ful and tra­di­tional mem­berowned golf club.

He be­lieved that this was be­cause the club had man­aged pro­gres­sive change to keep up with the ex­pec­ta­tions of to­day’s mem­ber­ship while re­spect­ing the tra­di­tions of the club.

He also noted that the main at­trac­tion of the club was their Harry Colt-de­signed golf course and the work of suc­ces­sive com­mit­tees and course man­agers to en­sure that this has kept im­prov­ing.

The new Chair­man, elected at the AGM, was John Woof who takes over at the same time as the new Gen­eral Man­ager.
