From the Outgoing Men’s Captain

Dear Members,

This month marks the dawn of an exciting new era for Par-T-On, characterized by fresh guidance and a visionary approach that will hopefully shape the future of our club. This significant leap forward was initiated with the appointment of Mr. Sami Benafia as our Men’s Captain during the Annual General Meeting held on August 24th, 2023.

It is noteworthy that Sam’s appointment was uncontested, a testament to the unwavering trust and confidence our members have in his leadership.

For those of you who may not be acquainted with Sami, allow me to provide a brief introduction. Sami has been part of our club since the merger with Par5 and sat on the committee for a brief period. Among his attributes, Sami possesses a deep appreciation for the game of golf and a thorough understanding of the expectations and traditions associated with a member’s club. His knowledge of the Rules of Golf and the handicapping system further demonstrates his commitment to our sport.

With the appointment of Joana Yoana as the Ladies Captain and Henk Pouels as the Men’s Vice Captain, we are poised for a future that not only builds upon our past successes but also propels us to unprecedented heights.

Under the new leadership and the new additions to the committee, we can anticipate a spectrum of positive changes, innovative initiatives, and collaborative efforts aimed at enhancing the overall experience for you, our valued members.

As we navigate this transition, I encourage all members to rally behind the PTO elected respected captains and extend their support and cooperation. Together with the committee, they will collectively shape the future of Par-T-On and continue to craft enduring memories for our membership community.

I want to thank and wish all the committee for taking on their respective roles and showing an interest in evolving the club into the future.

As I step down from the role of Club Captain, I want to convey my deepest gratitude to each one of you for the incredible support, encouragement, and cherished memories we have shared. Your passion for golf and unwavering dedication to our club have been the driving forces behind the success of Par-T-On.

While my title may change, my commitment to Par-T-On remains unwavering. I will continue to be an active member and contribute to the club’s continued growth and prosperity as part of the committee/member.

Thank you once again for being an integral part of this extraordinary journey. I eagerly anticipate witnessing the next chapter of Par-T-On under new leadership, and I have no doubt that, together, we will achieve even greater milestones.

Warm regards,

September 2023.
