I am delighted to let you know that Ann Smillie has been appointed County welfare officer. Many of you will remember Ann as one of our competition secretaries as well as someone who has helped Sharron with Junior competitions.

Ann and her small, four-legged, furry companion – Tilly – are to be spotted at many County competitions particularly supporting players from Goring and Streatley Golf Club where Ann is a member.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank very much Gabi Heuchel for undertaking this important role up to now and I’m sure everyone will join me in wishing her a speedy return to golf after her recent accident.
