 2018 Captain's Address

 

Welcome to the 2018 Season. 2018 is a very important year because it marks the association's 25th year.

This year we have selected some very challenging but good golf courses for you to test your skill and enjoy the company of fellow members and guests. In September we will be visiting Portugal to play the annual Champion of Champions tournament, our 6th major and celebrate 25 years of the ACGA.

I commend the hard working and diligent committee members who over the 25 years of this association's existence have freely given their time efforts and best intentions to ensure that the association has a history of which it can be proud.

This year's committee will continue to develop its focus so that we can provide and stage events to a high standard.

With an eye on our future, I remind you that this year will also mark the end of this current committee's tenure, so I look forward to a new committee taking over the reigns and continuing the good work and reputation of our golf society/association in 2019/20.

Yours in golf

Regards

Roger Goddard

ACGA Captain
