THE Riverside Golf Club is moving in a new direction.
After turbulent times in recent months, Peter Winslow has taken over the presidency from Lorraine Fisher, while David Woolcock is the new vice-president.
Sue Scott is also the new administration officer. Winslow, who has been a member at Riverside for more than 20 years, said he had already seen positive changes at the club in recent weeks.
“We’ve got several new committee members, the numbers in the fields have increased and there are smiles back on members’ faces,” Winslow said.
“Volunteers are back on board and I think once people have seen a change they’ve wanted to be a part of it.”
However, Winslow admitted the saga at the club had been frustrating.
“People were frustrated but the golf club is always bigger than an individual,” he said.
“In 50 years’ time the golf club will still be there but the people will be different.”
Winslow, who has also been a committee member for the past four years, said he believed the club was previously heading in a “negative direction”. “I’ve got the golf club at heart and if I had to put my hand up to be president, I was happy to do that,” he said.
“It has been a bit of saga but everyone seems to have a smile on their face now and the golf club is moving forward.
“I’ve got good support which will be really good.”
Winslow said it was important members worked cohesively to get the club back on track.
