Jack Nicklaus sends his regards on our 125th Anniversary

Presidents side v the rest 26/10/19

Weather conditions were far from perfect on Saturday for this annual match play event, and incredibly the match was halved for another year!

Roger Waplington, the Club President had picked two captains for the team. Peter Kelley to Captain the Presidents team and Tom Ross to Captain 'the rest'


Following the prizegiving and meal, it is customary for the President to make a speech followed by the team captains.  

A nervous Tom Ross had reached out to a few people for some words of advice and support prior to the event. He was amazed by the video reply he received from the best golfer in history, Jack Nicklaus.
