The Council 2018

Club Captain

Bill Baum

I am in my 22nd year at Hinckley Golf Club and enjoy the camaraderie whether it’s playing for the B & C teams or just rocking up with a few members. I also play with my wife in the brilliant mixed section and have supported the social side of our club attending a great many of the functions that are put on throughout the year.

I have gained a large number of friends through playing golf and joining the many social fun events at the club. I am excited and looking forward to my year as Club Captain.

I have now been a member of Hinckley Golf Club for over 20 years and have served on the Social Committee and been a regular player for the C Team.  I get great enjoyment from following our 1st Team and County Teams for both their home and away matches where I am commonly known as 'The Flag Man'.

To find out why please come and join me in supporting our teams, I hope to see you soon for some fun summer evenings.

Ladies Captain

Sandra Baum

I joined Hinckley Golf Club over seventeen years ago after being persuaded by my husband  and children to take up golf. Initially most of my games were within the mixed group but since retirement I have thoroughly enjoyed being able to play regularly in the friendly ladies section.

My husband Bill and I have gained a large number of friends through playing golf and joining the many social fun events at the club. I am excited and looking forward to the my year as Lady Captain.

Sarb Matharu

I joined Hinckley golf club in 2005 after much encouragement from the Hinckley Golf Club Social Sec. John Neave. As a keen sportsman from my early years, playing semi-professional squash and having football trials for both Aston Villa and Leicester City, I enjoyed nothing more than the challenge of testing myself in different sporting activities. As a result, golf has now become my sporting passion.

I became the club’s Handicap Secretary in 2011 after requesting an explanation about a decrease in my handicap and was promptly asked if I would like to become the handicap sec! I am proud of the work of volunteers to continually improve the club; for example – as a competitions committee - we have established the criteria so that handicaps are managed in a fair manner according to the England Golf Union criteria.

I will relish the challenge of Vice-Captain and try to fulfil my role with the same commitment and enthusiasm as our past Captains, who have contributed so much to the life of the club.

Golf Development Director

Steve White

I have been a member of the club for around 20 years. My main role is to look after the development of players whether that be Juniors, Ladies, Men or Club members. I work as an IT Manager in the world of Commercial Insurance and this brings many years of experience in commercial management to the club, which in the main is run by volunteers. One of my main aims over the next 3-5 years is to grow the grass root side of the golf club, taking Juniors as young as 5 through to 18 and letting them experience, and where possible develop, their golfing skills and become valued members of the club.

Seniors Captain

Peter Emeny

Being of a competitive nature I have been involved with various sporting activities over the years, be it high jump, swimming, gymnastics, football, marathons, triathlon’s, and of course golf. I first joined Hinckley golf club in 1984, playing for the B team for over 25 years. I am looking forward to my year as Senior Captain, the seniors matches and the seasons events over the coming year.

I started my golf at Modderfontein golf club in Johannesbug South Africa before returning to England in 1983.

All senior members are welcome to join in all the events, the more the merrier and I look forward to your support over the coming year.
