2019 CAPTAIN - David Driver de Valle

David was born in Suffolk, and his Sales & Marketing career started at Heinz. He then held senior management positions in other international FMCG companies that meant many house moves around the UK and beyond.

His business career eventually bought him to the jewel aka Shropshire, where he is now happily retired. Although David joined Hawkstone Park in 1996, his business travels around the World meant that unfortunately golf took second place to business priorities.

David holds a unique position in that he was Vice Captain to both Captain Ashley Burdock in 2017 and to outgoing Captain Robin Mackness in 2018. This was due to his relationship with the dreaded “C” word. Now happily in much better health, he is looking forward to the great honour of being Captain in the Club’s 99th year and to enjoy playing this wonderful game.

His charity for 2019 is The Lingen Davies Cancer Fund which exists to make a positive difference to lives affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and Mid Wales.

With the Club’s Centenary fast approaching in 2020, this year’s overriding objective for David and the Management Committee has to be to create a series of celebratory events that will make everyone proud to be a member of Hawkstone Park.

2019-2020 PRESIDENT - Dale Benbow

Dale is very very proud to have been elected to serve as President of the Club which has been her passion for very many years having joined 31 years ago - in 1988.
Dale has served the Club in numerous capacities both on and off the golf course. She has played in league and Mail on Sunday teams for which she was awarded her “Club Honours” in Ann Trevor’s year of Captaincy and has been chair of House & Social but her highlight, to date, was serving as millennium (2000!) Ladies’ Captain.

On the County front Dale is a past Captain of the Shropshire Society of Lady Golf Captains (SSLGC).

Dale is proud to be continuing the Benbow family’s close association with the Club as for many years Benbow Brothers have been responsible for tree surgery throughout the estate while her late brother in law Ray was Club Captain in 1981.

But she in most proud of her nephew, Tom Benbow, a past HPGC Junior Captain and Shropshire County Player. Tom, who now works for IMG, is a member at Royal Mid Surrey where, playing off scratch, he won their Club Championship in 2015 - and has played in the final ever since!
