WELCOME TO THE CLUB PAGES
Mr. Andy Fairbairn
Andy joined The Halifax Golf Club in 1999 after injury brought an abrupt end to rugby days at Old Rishworthians. Having taken up golf as a safer and more sedate past-time it came as a bit of a shock when two years later he took a tumble down the 17th path and ended up in A&E with a broken leg.
Andy has had a few highlights on the Ogden course, with two Hoyle Trophy wins and success in 2019 partnering Ted Holmes in the Cowling Whitson. Thanks to his retirement from work in 2018, Andy has represented the Seniors and Bradford Handicap league teams.
In 2019, as well as taking up the office of Vice Captain, Andy also “inherited” the role of Handicaps and Competitions Secretary. These positions have helped him get to know many of the Club members. He is very happy to receive constructive feedback on any aspects of the handicap and competition operations – just not while on his backswing!
Andy is extremely grateful for the support of his wife, Sheena, his son, Nigel (now a playing member of the Club), and daughter, Katrina (who he hopes will also become a member at some point in the future).
