Dear Members, Visitors, and Guests
I consider it a huge honour and privilege to welcome you all as Captain of Oakdale Golf Club 2017/2018 and I must thank all the members for electing me.
If you are a first-time visitor this website gives just a taste of what Oakdale Golf Club has to offer. Please accept my warm invitation to pay us a visit as that is the best way to experience all the facilities available.
We at Oakdale have recently introduced a new flexible membership package in order to respond to the challenging times ahead. This package will run in conjunction with the established forms of membership, full, 5 & 6 day. All the aforementioned categories include free membership for family members under the age of 18. We also have a thriving social membership for non golfers. Our members benefit from a whole range of discounts at bars, restaurants and businesses in Harrogate, further details can be found on the website.
Our Golf Club, designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie and established in 1914 is one of the finest courses in the North of England and is a fabulous test for golfers of all levels. Our Club House situated close to the town centre of Harrogate benefits from fantastic views due to its elevated position.
We have an exciting social calendar planned for 2017 and are looking forward to seeing many of you supporting these fantastic evenings which are almost sold out as quickly as they are announced.
Our resident PGA Professional Clive Dell is always on hand to offer excellent golf tuition, the latest in golf club technology along with an extensive range of clothing and accessories.
2016 was once again a successful year for our club teams in the Harrogate & District Golf Union keeping Oakdale Golf Club on top of the leaderboard throughout the year. Long may it continue.
I would like to wish our new President -Tony Robinson, Lady Captain -Christine Schlegel, Vice-Captain - Ken Richardson, Rabbits Captain - Bill Schlegel, Seniors Captain - Roger Pygott and Junior Captain - James Robson good luck for the forthcoming year and I very much look forward to working alongside both them and our new committee.
The Captain's chosen charity this year is Motor Neurone Disease and with your help and support I hope to raise a significant amount of money for this very worthy cause.
I hope you enjoy browsing the website, any comments are most welcome via our contact us page.
On a final note, may I take this opportunity to wish all members and visitors of the club an enjoyable year’s golf and every success in their game and I look forward to meeting you all - members and visitors alike.
