It is with great sadness that we heard of the death of Mike Nevett on March 14th. Mike passed away peacefully after a long illness.
Mark was Club Captain in 2002 and was a well respected member of the club for many years until he moved to Bath in 2006.
As well as playing golf, Mike was a superb tennis player and was both Captain and Chairman at Woodside Tennis Club in High Lane for many years where he played at county level.
As well as playing tennis, he was also a tennis umpire of some standing being a member of the Lawn Tennis Umpire’s Association, the British Tennis Umpire’s Association and Secretary of the Lawn Tennis Referees.
His crowning moments came at Wimbledon in 1986 where he officiated in the final between Boris Becker and Ivan Lendl and at the Albert Hall where he played in a pro celebrity doubles match with Fred Stolle against John Newcombe and partner
Our condolences go to his three sons Andy, Colin and Graham as well as other members of his family and his many friends in this area.
Sadly we heard from ex member Steve Price that John Abson passed away last week. Before moving to live in Ashbourne, where he became a member of Ashbourne Golf Club 7 years ago, John had been a very loyal and hard working member of New Mills Golf Club of which he was Secretary in 2010 . John was also very active in the Seniors’ section serving as Vice Chair in 2010 and then Chairman the following year. In addition John was also Chair of the Handicap and Greens committees at various times whilst he was a member.
Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time
