2018 SENIORS' CAPTAIN - Paul Harris

Paul has been in engineering all his life, initially working for a high precision machine tool company with a secondment in Japan and various business trips through-out the old Eastern Block, America and Europe.

After 20 years with the company he moved into power tools working in London prior to moving to Telford with Makita. After a short period, he was appointed to the board of directors in Japan with a remit to expand the European operation. Again, with many business trips to Japan, China, America and Germany, he opened a factory in Romania.

He says that he has been very lucky to experience so many different working cultures and ways of life; just before he retired he was awarded an O.B.E. for services to international business and he had the pleasure to lunch with her Majesty the Queen and Prince Philip when celebrating 50 years of the Queens reign.

While working, the opportunities to play golf were few and far between so, after retiring from this very busy working career, with surplus time on his hands, he joined the Golf Club some five years ago.Playing twice a week Paul was hoping to improve his game and fight advancing years and lowering his handicap still remains an ambition!

Paul says “My love for the game and Hawkstone Park Golf Club is reward enough. I consider myself very fortunate to belong to the Club as it has two splendid courses and, even if the game is not going well, walking down the 10th and 11th on the Hawkstone over the four seasons is a spectacular experience!”

Paul feels very honoured to be elected Seniors Captain and will do his best to promote the Club and support the other Captains. Paul continues “I wish all members, new and old, an enjoyable golfing year and, whatever your handicap, do take pride when you play two of the greatest courses in the UK!”

Another hole in one!

Playing in the Club's Past Captains' Autumn Meeting on Friday 08 September, David Hiles achieved the third ace of his golfing career. David used his (old?) Genltemen's Persuader, a 24 degree rescue club, on the 17th hole of the Championship course.Sadly, the ace was insufficient for David to win the trophy as he had to settle for second place behind Andy Hughes. But there was a consolation prize for Him as he won the Captains' Pot for the best aggregate score of the two Captains' Meetings of the year.David's previous aces were both shot on the 9th hole of the Hawkstone course.

First Hole in One of the 2017 Season?

Playing in a friendly fourball on Friday 30 June, 7 handicapper Gordon Campbell, achieved an ace using his trusty seven iron on the 142 yard Cricket Pitch 3rd hole on the Hawkstone course - the fifth of his golfing career but his first at Hawkstone. Very well done, Gordon!
