CLUB CHAIRMAN's ANNOUNCEMENT
|It is my very great pleasure to announce that Jim Ferrier has agreed to take on the role of Men's Captain for 2018. I am thrilled that he has agreed to do so and know he will bring a great warmth, sense of fun and comradery, and enjoyment of the sport to the team and its matches in the upcoming year.
Jim has graciously agreed to take on this role while still holding a very hectic role here at the Defence Academy so I would encourage the Club's men membership to look to support him in any way possible with high turnouts of volunteers for the matches and the occasional request for a day captain being something you will all consider.
I know it is going to be a great year for the Men's team and I look forward to playing a few matches for the team myself, for a change. Thank you Jim and thank you all of the men of the Club who I know will get behind the new season and Jim's leadership for the year.
Good golfing in 2018.

The Club, established in 1956, is an attractive 18 hole course within
the confines of the Defence Academy of The United Kingdom. The 18 different holes are achieved by
a devious combination of 14 greens and 17 tees, so making each hole
unique. We are established to encourage beginners to take up the sport
and a visiting professional is available for lessons. The course has
evolved to give all standards of players an enjoyable game in pleasant
parkland conditions. The course is 5684 yards long and par 70. Our
handicaps are recognised by the English Golf Union - a vital entree
to other clubs when you leave. Click here to view the course
There are at least two competitions each month, with all the
entry fees being returned as prizes. There are also some 30 matches a
season, against local Club and Military teams. The Club Captain would
be glad to hear from players holding EGU handicaps. If friendly golf
is your thing then the course is open dawn to dusk with very few tee
restrictions - see Competitions, Fixtures and Course Notice Board on this web site or the club notice boards.
Club membership is comprised of personnel employed or studying at the Defence Academy and members of the local community. For details of the course and club membership fees please contact the Club Manager on 01793 785725.
