A message from the Captain

Dear Member’s

Hi, my name is Helen Biggs and on 31st March 2024 I will have the great honour of becoming the Ladies Captain at Nene Park Golf Club.

I have been a member of the club for 9 years starting off in the inaugural year of Ladies Golfing Academy run by our Lady Professional, Suzanne Dickens.  Joining the Academy not only provided me with expert tuition but enabled me to meet other likeminded ladies of similar ability wanting to play and improve their golfing skills.  That was where my love for the game started.

During my two years in the Academy, my confidence grew and I eventually joined the Ladies Section.  I started playing with a wider section of ladies, entering competitions and then on to representing the club at a regional level as well as playing in Ladies and Mixed Friendly Matches.  I have always found our ladies section to be extremely welcoming and very friendly.

The chosen charity for my captaincy is Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice.  As a true Peterborian, born at Thorpe Hall Maternity Unit, I am a firm believer in supporting local charities and I can think of no other local charity more deserving than Sue Ryder for the services they provide.

Sue Ryder is there to make sure everyone approaching the end of their life or living with grief can access the support they need.  There is no one size fits all when it comes to how we cope and the help we need, but with their support, no one has to face dying or grief alone.  They are there when it matters.  Last year Sue Ryder Nurses and Thorpe Hall Hospice provided 145,000 hours of palliative care and support to patients and their families.

As a keen supporter and sponsor of the club, I enjoy playing both of our courses which I have always found to be in excellent condition, whatever time of the year (weather permitting).  But with that being said, we are very fortunate to have the Driving Range which is an excellent facility.

I look forward to a very busy year and hope to see you all out on the course!
