2017 CAPTAIN CHRIS KIRBY DRIVES IN



A great turn out for a member that has done an enormous amount for our Club over the years.
We wish him a great year and may Lynne & he have many happy memories of it.

Chris & Lynne Kirby 2017





Chris and Lynne enjoyed a great day and thanked everyone for their support, especially his Son, Sam who had travelled across from Norway to be with the whole Family. Great support & great family.

Chris announced his Charity for the year was to be The Brain Research Trust and the raffle got him off to a good start. Past Captain Colin Wyatt won the 'Guess the distance to the pin' of the Captain's Drive In and promptly donated the money to Chris's fund, very generous and thank you .


Dave & Sue Burgess say THANK YOU Southend Golf Club




£3,012 raised for the Anthony Nolan Trust, another great year for our little club and it's tremendous reputation for supporting good causes.

Dave and Sue have been amazed at the support shown throughout the year and have enjoyed the experience. I think we as a Club owe them a lot for their energy and enthusiasm and now Dave, you can get back to just enjoying your golf.
