Dave Crook - Full Junior Organiser and Junior Team Manager - 2015 To date

I played a small amount of golf as a junior on summer holidays in Norfolk, it was a very long time ago but when age prevented me from playing rugby there could only be one way to earn my right to have a beer. Desperately trying to return to my best ever handicap of 12.

I am in awe of the dedication and standard of play of our juniors, from the newest academy player through to our lowest handicappers they work to improve their game. They are well coached and as a section I hope we instil a love and respect for the game which will stay with them until they are old enough to be organisers themselves.

Favourite West Herts hole : 12th.

Favourite hole elsewhere : 8th at Brancaster (Royal West Norfolk).

Best golfing moment : breaking 80 at West Herts.

Golfing ambition : to break 80 at West Herts again.

Kevin Raybould – Junior Committee Chairman – 2019 to date
