Our first Open of 2023 took place on Thursday 20 April .  The strong wind throughout the day meant the course looked at it's very best but proved difficult for many players which is reflected in an average score for the day of just 33, well down on previous better ball competitions. In spite of difficult conditions, everyone thought the course was terrific and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The one overseas competitor, from Metz in France, thought it was "tres difficile" although he did try to claim a prize for the longest drive!!!! The winners were:- 1st £100 each Brian Evans and Stewart Moscrop from Dunnerholme & Barrow respectively with 41 points (after countback) 2nd £70 each Neil Bremmer & Bill Watkinson both from Ulverston also with 41 points 3rd £50 each Stuart Knowles andJohn Ashurst both from Pleasington with 40 points 4th £35 each Stephen Briggs and Dave Bowen from Rossendale & Rochdale respectively with 38 points (after countback)

Skipton Golf Club’s Men’s and Ladies’ Captains, Bob Jarman and Lorraine Raeburn, have swung into action with the annual 'drive-in' to mark the traditional tee-off to the new 2023 season, staged as part of an extremely well-supported mixed competition day on Saturday. (April 1) With the club in fine heart both on and off the course, both Captains say they are looking forward to a highly successful season. Bob commented: “I hope to bring the various sections of the Club together more often and promote the social side of golf as much as we can. I think the opening day’s turnout of over 140 golfers was fantastic and hopefully signifies the start of a superb year of golf for all at Skipton Golf Club.” Lorraine said: “Wherever possible I am keen to encourage new children members to attend our junior coaching sessions - two of my own grandchildren are already involved. We also have beginners coaching and academy membership leading into full membership, while new lady members will be assigned an individual mentor from our ladies committee to integrate them into our section and assist them in obtaining their handicap.” Both captains will be staging a series of fund-raising events throughout their year in office in aid of their joint charity, Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope. These include a standalone charity golf day on Saturday, April 22, further fund-raisers at Open Events and selling season tickets for the Captains’ Charity Bunker and Stream – two hazards for which a nominal fine is normally paid. Lorraine is also planning a coffee morning in May at a home venue to further boost the kitty, while Bob will continue to auction off his [...]

Skipton Golf Club new officials teed-up for successful 2023 Season

PRESIDENT LADY CAPTAIN MEN'S CAPTAIN Bill Simpson Lorraine Raeburn Bob Jarman Bob Jarman is the new Men’s Captain at Skipton Golf Club, with Lorraine Raeburn, who took over as Ladies Captain last August, retaining the role for the 2023 season and club stalwart Bill Simpson newly installed as President. Born and raised locally, Bob has lived all his life within 10 miles of Skipton Golf Club and his current residence can just about be seen from the 3rd green! He was a member of Silsden Golf Club for over 30 years and on its closure, along with a number of his golfing pals, joined Skipton in 2019. Bob has become an active member of the club, playing most weekends and also acting as Competition Secretary, dealing with Saturday competitions results, a role he will continue to undertake during his year as Club Captain. Off the course, his role as a Project Manager in the construction Industry takes him far and wide across the country. On his election at a special general meeting of the club this month, Bob paid tribute to his predecessor, retiring Men’s Captain Roger Moore and Sylvia Eastwood, whom he said had proved a figurehead in her role as the club’s first-ever Lady President. He commented: “I can only say that following the sad closure of Silsden Golf Club how welcome myself and other former Silsden members have been made to feel here at Skipton. I look forward to supporting the various sections and hope their teams will have a successful year in their respective leagues, as well as the many friendly matches already planned. [...]
