Steve Biddlecombe (Lamberhurst GC Captain 2023/2024)
May I first of all offer a wholehearted and friendly welcome to Lamberhurst Golf Club.
I am extremely honoured and privileged to have been elected as Captain of this special golf club having been a member for 23 years.
The course, which is situated within one of the 99 Parishes of the High Weald AONB, offers a variety of challenges for Golfers of all abilities with 4 different yardage of course available. Moderate in length, this scenic parkland course proves itself with the need for accuracy within its undulating topography and immaculate fast running greens, enough to test all your putting skills.There is plenty of diversity on the 18 hole course with 7 'Dog-legs' and 3 holes that bring water into play. Score building is therefore dependent on thoughtful course management.
There are numerous internal and external matches and competitions to involve yourself with which are a great opportunity for new members to meet other more established members. Hospitality towards visiting golfers and societies alike is paramount to our ethos and I'm sure allcomers will experience a pleasant atmosphere when you visit.
Lamberhurst Golf Club is a members club, run by the members, for the members and has an ongoing 5/10 year planning strategy for both the course and the clubhouse and is meticulously implemented by our elected committees so nothing is left to chance.
Our Head Professional, Will Davies and his assistant Tom are both very innovative in the way in which they can help all golfers to improve their game. As an example of Lamberhurst planning strategy to improve facilities a state of the art 'swing studio' has been installed. This enables all golfers to have indoor lessons or play by 'virtual reality' many courses or holes within a course in the comfort of the studio. Custom golf club fitting is also available.
There is a good reason why Lamberhurst Golf Club has thrived and prospered in its 133 year existence, and this is the way we intend to continue for the fun and enjoyment of all that choose to visit, play or join our golf club.
As this year’s Captain my chosen charity is Cancer Research UK which has found treatments for many people. Although founded in 2002, it still needs massive funding and I hope to add to this from the Lamberhurst Golf Club members generosity.
