Hello to all the Stags,
Its that time of year again when the Stags get a new Captain! This duty has fallen to me for the forthcoming year and I am delighted to take on that role.
By way of introduction I am Paul Steward (with a ‘D’ not a ‘T’ Robin!) for the last two years I have been playing at Stoneleigh as part of the Stags group and have been Vice-Captain for the last 12 months.
A little bit about me, I came to live in Warwickshire, with my wife Sue nearly three years ago. We relocated here to be near to Sue’s family. I have played golf for many years and previously belonged to a golf club in Essex with my brother-in-law Keith Borer. Keith relocated to Warwickshire the year before I came to this lovely part of the country.
As a very keen golfers, Keith offered to find a golf club for us to join and set about looking around the local area. Stoneleigh was our firm favourite and so we joined without delay. I can honestly say, that the welcome we received was amazing and it was the best decision ever. One member said to me when I first joined ‘as long as you don’t mind a bit of mickey taking’ you will fit in well, and here I am. What a brilliant group of guys who have not only made me and Keith very welcome, but we have made some good friends along the way.
As a new Captain, I hope to make sure that all aspects of my role will run as smoothly as possible. I know that I will need some help and I want to acknowledge that Richard and the other guys on the committee have been given lots of advice and support to get me started for which I am very grateful. Keith will be my Vice Captain and I know he will be a great Vice. The only problem that I can see, is will you understand our Essex lingo!
I want to make sure that if anyone has any problems or issues with how things are running, that you let me know and I shall endeavour to sort them out or seek the advice of the committee.
The Charity for this year is Coventry Macular Society; this chosen charity is one that will truly benefit from your generosity.
I hope that we have some wonderful golf this year and I look forward to seeing you all this season.
With warmest regards
Paul Steward – Stags Captain 2019/20
