John Wilce, our much loved and stalwart member, passed away after a short illness. He was a much loved and respected member of our Committee, totally reliable, quietly getting on with the job and – despite what he thought – very definitely NOT just a set builder!
He was a real gentleman and is very much missed by us all.
In 2013, John received the Queen’s Service Medal for services to golf and the community. Below is a photo of John receiving this honour from Sir Jerry Mataparae, then Governor-General.
