Message from the Captain

I am very proud to have become the Captain of this esteemed Society. I was formally elected at the Annual General Meeting held at Seacroft near Skegness. The Society was founded in 1898 and is made up of Chartered Accountants from a wide base, including both the profession and industry/commerce.

Members handicaps range from close to scratch up to 28 across all ages. We have several lady members and a substantial number of members who are still working. It is pleasing to see that every year we attract a good number of new members and, like all Societies and Clubs, this is the lifeblood for the future.

I would like to see more of our Members participate in our meetings and matches. We play wonderful courses and the Society is extremely friendly and welcomes new players.

Apart from frequent meetings we have matches against the law Society, Chartered Surveyors, Medics, Bankers and The Stock Exchange.

Annual meetings include matches against both the Irish Chartered Accountants and the French "Expert Comptables". Each year we rotate from a home match to an away match and these have taken us to some great golf courses in Ireland and France. The matches, whilst competitive, have always been great fun with plenty of time to enjoy the company with, of course, excellent food and drink.

Also, in the golfing calendar we have social golf holidays which, in the past, have included Turkey and Cyprus.

At several of our events there is an opportunity for members partners, whether golfers or not, to join us.

Our AGM meeting in May 2020 will be held at Royal North Devon Golf Club which is the oldest course in England srill playing on its original grounds. J H Taylor, the Open Champion, played his early golf here and the Clubhouse includes a fascinating golf museum.

I am looking forward to my Captaincy year and will be playing in as many events as possible. I hope to meet a number of new members and welcome them to our Society.

Martin Salvage

Captain 2019/2020
