Dear Current SEJs, Ex-SEJs and Guests,
It is with great pride that I write to you as the 2018 Captain of the South Eastern Junior Golfing Society. After the SEJs successfully celebrated its 60th anniversary last year, I feel flattered to assume the post of Captain with the society in flourishing health. The SEJs has given me a huge amount of enjoyment during my time as a member and I am looking forward with excitement to the responsibility to lead such a unique and prominent society over the coming year.
Since its inception in 1957, the SEJs has continued to operate in the same way, namely providing young golfers based in the South of England with a chance to play mixed foursomes golf on a number of the most prestigious and best courses in the country. Although the Walker Cup credentials of our founding fathers have sadly diminished through the years, the general standard of play remains competitive and the ethos of the society is unchanged with an emphasis on sociable play and meeting new golfing companions.
With a full fixture list alongside a variety of other events over the course of the year such as an annual black-tie dinner, summer tour and regular social events, there is plenty of opportunity to get involved. We are always open to hearing from potential new members and in particular, from those who are recent movers to London and are looking for an opportunity to play affordable golf with a similar aged and minded group. The benefit of the U28 age limit of the SEJs is that the membership continues to evolve which hopefully creates a welcoming atmosphere for potential new joiners. Should you be interested in further details then please do not hesitate to contact our Membership Secretary, Sophie Dawes.
I look forward to hopefully seeing you all on the links or at the bar for a kümmel over the course of the year.
SEJ Captain 2018
