Meet the Captain - Mr Simon Bramall
It was with great pride that I accepted the role as Captain of Silkstone Golf Club, following in the
footsteps of many other past Captains who have dedicated much time and effort in the role over
the years. I only hope that I can live up to expectations and the standards set, in particular, by
the previous Captain, Paul Hoyes. My charity of the year will be the Yorkshire Air Ambulance
I joined Silkstone Golf Club as a 14 year old junior in 1973, met my wife Carol here and as you
can imagine Golf plays an important part in my life, not only the challenge of the game but also
socialising with many like-minded Members and Visitors to our great Club.
To our Members, I’d like to wish you all a successful year both on and off the course and hope
you all continue to show true Barnsley warmth and respect to each other, our visitors and our
great course. We all have a responsibility to ensure that the legacy of our beautiful course and
Club are around for another 100 plus years for future generations to enjoy.
To our Visitors and potential new Members I hope you enjoy your day at Silkstone Golf Club. Our
course has now developed into one of the finest in Yorkshire and is open all year round. We have
some of the best practice facilities in the County as well as one of the most experienced Golf
Professional Teams available for both lessons and shop sales. Please take a few minutes to view
our website and the different types of Membership available. If you have any questions or
interest please feel free contact the Secretary's office.
Finally, I’d like to thanks our Ladies section for their continued massive contribution to the Club.
I’ve never come across a group that work so hard both on and off the course, whether its building
and maintaining flower beds or raising thousands of pounds to help with key Club improvements and various charities -
they all throw themselves in to the challenges 100%.
