President Charlie Cox (Bracken Ghyll Golf Club)                     



Firstly may I say how deeply privileged I feel to have been invited by the Bradford Union of Golf Clubs to be your President for 2017. It is also a tribute to Bracken Ghyll G.C. I was always taught to say please and thank you as a child, I have a lot of people to thank for me reaching the top of our Union ladder. Thank You to: - Firstly to my wife Christine who has given me and our family her total support over the last 40 years enabling me to play cricket and Golf without her that would never have been possible. The Officials, friends and Members at Bracken Ghyll Golf Club for allowing me to be Club Captain twice, Seniors Captain and Bradford Union Captain of Captains and are now supporting me in this post, and for their personal congratulations.

The Past Presidents for their nomination, The Management Committee and Golf Committee for welcoming me when I became J.V.P. What a fantastic job these Committees do, we are so lucky to have the quality we have running our Union. The Union Scratch and Junior Teams and The Alliance Players for accepting me the way they have. Colin Edwards President 2016 for his help and advice Colin has done a great job and I've got some big boots to fill. Graeme Anderson Vice President for his support as J.V.P. A great figurehead for 2018, Jimmy Sidney for accepting J.V.P. for 2017, I'm looking forward to Jimmy coming on board.

This is a Very Special Year for me as your President and I look forward to meeting the Membership along the way. I would like to wish you all Health, Wealth and a Happy Golfing Year.
