Jack and his late wife Nola joined the Golf Club in 1979. Jack dedicated 16 years to serving on the Board of the Club.

He was President from 1994 to 2001.

In recognition of this record he was made a Life Member when he stepped down as President in 2001.

Jack presided over the major works undertaken by the Board which resulted in the extension from 18 holes to the current 27 holes.

Both Jack and his late wife appreciated the friendship that was always extended to them from the Membership and continues to be extended to Jack.

Everyone in the Golf Club sends their very best wishes to Jack on this very special occasion.
