Steve Warner is Makers own Captain Marvel and for the past year as well as working full time in his demanding role within Makers logistics department he has been representing his local Golf Club as their Captain for the 2016/17 season.
At the club’s AGM, Steve officially performed his last duty and stepped down as Branston’s Golf and Country Club Captain handing over the reins to the new incoming Captain Steve Fox.
Steve would be the first to admit that it hasn’t been an easy road but wouldn’t have swapped it for the world.
“I have been honoured and privileged to represent the Club, its members, as their Captain and have enjoyed my time in office. I have to say a really big thank you to Makers, especially John and Sean who have worked tirelessly with me throughout the year to ensure I could meet both my work and golf commitments which without their assistance wouldn’t have been possible and I am eternally grateful to them.”

As is tradition at Branston Golf & Country Club the season starts with its annual drive in. These events tend to be “themed” and this year was no exception with Steve dressed as Olivia Newton John, performing to popular songs from “Grease” in front of the whole club.
During Steve’s year in conjunction with his lady Captain Jenny Hollis, they raised over £24,000 for their chosen charity Alzheimer’s by walking Hadrians Wall and holding a James Bond Summer Ball.
Steve in his formative years was the Golf professional at Branston, and his long association with the club coupled with his 60th Birthday inspired him to be the Club Captain. As a professional Steve’s playing career suffered greatly due his fear of public speaking and whenever he was well positioned to win a tournament he would worry so much about the impending speech he would forget to concentrate on his shot!
Over the past year Steve has entertained the membership in his own individual style leaving many crying with howls of laughter…..for some of us who know Steve both on a social and work level we know most of his idiosyncrasies are what endear us to him.
Makers are very proud of the way Steve has risen to the challenge with his effort and determination which has made him a successful Captain as well as maintaining his commitment to the company.
Steve holds the title of “Oldest Club Champion” at the Club and has put in a “Champions” performance this year.
“I am delighted for Steve, I recognise it was a very personal achievement for him and he conducted himself with dignity, credibility, and the utmost professionalism, he can be very proud of what he has achieved for the club and I have never seen him looking so smart. Well done Steve!”
