The Association of Kent Veteran Golfers

This is to introduce myself.  My name is Eddie Ruff and I have been a member of Chestfield Golf Club for the last 14 years, and a member of the Kent Vets for 12 years.  I have been on the committee at Chestfield for 7 years and for 5 ½ years I was Head of Greens.

I try to play most of the Kent Vet Association matches as I think it’s a wonderful way to meet people of different backgrounds.  My aim is always to enjoy my golf and I hope to encourage people to enjoy the game rather than to be very competitive.  I would like to think that at the end of our meetings everyone leaves having enjoyed their day.  I will endeavour to continue the good work the previous captains have achieved.

I hope to play as many games as possible and to take a team to the West Country in 2017.   I will be looking for AKVG members to play in the West County, so anyone who may be interested please contact me or Jim Silvester.

The Society is trying to vary the golf courses we play each year and as will be seen from the fixture list we will be playing 3 different courses this year.

My nominated charity this year will be Marie Curie.

I hope to see you all during the year.
