It is with great sadness that the BDRGA have to report that our secretary, Mel Smart, has recently passed away. Our condolences go out to his wife Jean and all of their family. Mel was well known throughout golfing circles in Bradford and around Yorkshire. He was secretary for the BDRGA, Woodhall Hills rabbits, the flightpath Trophy and the railway golf society. He will be greatly missed throughout our region.
