Mark Reynolds says it is a huge privilege to take on the role of President of Warwickshire Union of Golf Clubs until March 2022.
With Graham Barton completing his term as President after two enjoyable years, Reynolds (pictured below left with Graham) was voted into the position at the County AGM at Copt Heath GC on Thursday, March 12th, 2020.
He said: “I have a tough act to follow in Graham, who was a consistent and popular presence at all county events and matches over the last two seasons. But I’m looking forward to everything, it’s a huge privilege, thank you.”
The handover at the AGM took place after Warwickshire Union of Golf Clubs gave the attending Clubs more information about the current status of county golf and the new initiatives they are putting together to help grow the game.

Operations Director Matt Nixon offered an overview of what the County are trying to achieve with regard to communicating better with all the Clubs, while John Duncombe offered an update on the workings of England Golf.
With Robin Brennan explaining the accounts for the last 12 months, a first increase in five years for the county affiliation fee, up to £9.50, was approved for 2021.
