Ombersley is a proprietary golf course, owned and operated by the family business John Dowty Ltd.
Ombersley has a Club with a very strong and thriving membership. The objective of the Club is to do everything it can to promote golf at Ombersley for the enhancement and enjoyment of its members.
The Club is represented by a committee which usually consists of 12 members who meet monthly. The proprietor’s management team also attend monthly meetings and both the proprietors and the membership benefit from the strong links maintained via the general committee.
Due to the very busy nature of club life at Ombersley there are also sub committees run by the ladies and men which handle the intricacies of their own sections
In 2015 Roy Crowe retired after 19 years on the committee as Chairman and was made honorary life president of the club in recognition of his most valuable contributions during his term of office.
Welcome from your new captains
Matt Jones (Men’s Captain)
I have enjoyed my time as vice captain with Dave Willetts and am now looking forward to 2018 as captain with Dave Bradshaw as my vice captain. I will be looking to get a good team spirit with Ombersley matches in scratch, handicap and 17-24 leagues. It would also be great to bring in new faces to the teams and let's hope we can have a good run in the leagues.
Steph Searl ( Ladies’ Captain)
After completing group lessons at Ombersley around twelve years ago, Steph knew she wanted to take up golf more regularly but didn't have the time until April 2014 when she asked Graham to perform a miracle and get her into some sort of shape to play with friends in Portugal the following October.
During the past 4 years she has thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and friendships that playing with Ombersley Ladies has brought. She has a busy life, being Group Treasurer and supporting Mark in 21st Kidderminster Scout Group. Mom of 3, nana to four gorgeous grandsons and dog lover of 2 cavalier king Charles spaniels, Steph is Franchise partner in Boots Opticians Kidderminster with her daughter Julia (where Mark also works). Boots Opticians are sponsors of men's and ladies scratch trophies and latterly sponsor the junior team as well.
Terry Powick (Senior Men’s Captain)
I tried golf forty five years ago but decided that it wasn’t for me and I couldn’t fit it in with cricket and football and a young family anyway.
I married Jo in 1971 and have 3 Children and 5 grandchildren
After being the accountant for a subsidiary of an international company I ran my own business for 28 years before retiring in 2001.
About 7or 8 years ago I started playing late in the evening at Ombersley hoping no one would be on the course to see me as I didn’t have a clue. One night a member of a group known as the TOGS spotted me and invited me to join them on Wednesday afternoons. Here I played with friends that I had played hockey and tennis with.
I soon started playing with the Seniors and now my life is as hectic as ever again playing golf, tennis and spending every other spare minute with my wonderful family.
The elected Committee members for the 2018/19 membership year are as follows:
