Important information – Thursday 29th July

Head PGA Professional

It is a year since Matthew Paget Ltd started providing golf coaching and sports retailing services at the Club. During this time, those services have been managed by Ricky Pharo, as PGA Golf Services Manager. The Golf Committee, on behalf of Club golfing Members, has raised with the Board the question of whether Roehampton Club should continue to have someone fulfilling the role and title of Head Golf Professional..

After consultation with the Golf Committee and with its full support, the Board is pleased to announce that Ricky Pharo has been appointed Roehampton Club’s Head PGA Professional. We offer Ricky our congratulations on his appointment and our thanks for his excellent efforts over the last year.

A COVID-Safe Club

Can I repeat my message of last week that despite a much welcomed relaxation of restrictions by the Government the Club wants to take every precaution to not spread the COVID-19 virus within the Club. Can I ask Members to please join staff in wearing face coverings in the Clubhouse, Sports Shop and Health Club indoor areas and continue to sanitise their hands on a regular basis. Many of our younger Members and staff have only had one vaccination or even none at all.

Even those Members who have been double vaccinated are at risk of contracting the virus, even if without the fatal consequences so prevalent earlier in the pandemic. Ours is a club for all our Members. We owe it to each other to take care for each other and our staff. Asking you please to wear a face mask in these areas is a small gesture of respect and care to all of us. Thank you for your co-operation.
Best wishes,
Alan Jenkins
