This year's Club Captain is Nigel Smith and the Lady Captain is Jill Smith. Their joint message is:
"We are delighted to be the first married couple to be captain and lady captain of Chilwell Manor for 12 years and are looking forward to a brilliant season in 2023.
The club is very close of our hearts. We joined in 2007 and 2010 respectively and have made many great friends here whilst enjoying the sport we all love.
Chilwell Manor is special to us because of its family atmosphere. The social events and trips are great fun and we hope as many of you can join us at the club and on our travels during the year.
Our captain's charities are Alzheimer's Society (Nigel) and Versus Arthritis (Jill) in memory of our mums, so please give generously.
As you may know, there are some exciting developments planned for the course, building on the brilliant greens of which members are already so proud.
This will help us attract new members, visitors and societies and we would appeal to you all to play your part in giving them all a warm welcome when they come to Chilwell.
Jill's particular intention is to try to bring in more lady members, so please tell your friends to come along.
It is great to see our senior section so vibrant and, because our son Gareth joined when he was just 11, we are especially thrilled that the junior section has been reinvigorated.
The aim is for our great club to continue going from strength to strength, so let's start by having a fabulous 2023.
It is our intention to meet all of you during our year and play with as many of you as possible. Please give us a shout if you fancy a game.
Have a great year!"
Nigel and Jill Smith
