David Whittington

2022 CLUB CAPTAIN

Before joining Hanging Heaton Golf Club, I played society golf for several years and as my love for the game increased, I realised I needed to join a club to get the most out of the game.

I played at a few local clubs, but it was only after coming here, meeting the members and visiting the clubhouse, I knew this was the place for me.

In 2017 I was selected as Rabbit’s Captain and thoroughly enjoyed my year representing the biggest section in the Club, never imagining one day I would be asked to be Club Captain.

1922 what a significant year in the Club’s history. When the founder members got together and first discussed starting a golf club it must have seemed like a daunting task, forming a golf club from scratch, laying out a course and establishing rules and a constitution. 

From those humble beginnings, the founder members would never have dreamt what we have evolved into today. A fantastic golf club, with a great reputation and a desire to keep improving our facilities.

Thanks go to the Centenary Committee and volunteers, we have a year packed with celebratory events both on the course and in the Clubhouse, and I would like to invite all members to participate in as many of these events as possible to help make this a memorable year in our Clubs history.

I am honoured and privileged to have been selected as your  Captain in this our Centenary year and will do my best to fully represent all sections of our Club.

Judi Brooke

2022 LADIES CAPTAIN

Judi’s introduction to golf took place in the form of a golf lesson in August 2012 under the expert guidance of our golf professional Gareth.

 After a period of what Judi describes as fun and interesting lessons, Judi decided to take the plunge and join the Club as a full playing member in January 2013

Judi was made to feel welcome from the moment she joined the Club and this encouraged her to become more and more involved in the club, becoming a Committee member and is current social chair.

Judi was Lady Captain in 2019 and is delighted to have been given the opportunity to represent the Ladies Section as Lady Captain once again in this our special Centenary year.

Having encountered  a difficult 2 years Judi hopes that all members and friends at Hanging Heaton are able to return to enjoying their golf, Club events and the refreshments provided in the 19th hole.

 

Greg Dixon

2023 RABBITS CAPTAIN

I was a late convert to the game of golf, as a young man the game of amateur rugby league took up most of my spare time as I played for several local teams and am an avid supporter of Batley Rugby League Club.

I have been a member of Hanging Heaton Golf Club for over 9 years and thoroughly enjoy playing at what must be the friendliest club in the area.

I was very surprised and honoured to be asked by Neil to be his Vice Captain, particularly in typical Neil style it was at the very last moment but I had no hesitation in accepting the role.

After last year winning the League and gaining promotion to Division One, my main objective for the coming season is to consolidate our position within the division.

Club President Johnny Allott

JOHNNY ALLOTT

2022 CLUB PRESIDENT

Johnny has been a member of the golf club since he was a junior and is a former club professional.

He took over as President in 2019 and will continue in the role through to our centenary year in 2022.

Johnny still maintains a low handicap and competes against our best players.  He is keen to improve both the course and our club house as we progress to 2022.
