To help celebrate the club’s 125th anniversary, we have held a number of unique and very enjoyable events, one highlight being the Hickory Shaft Competition held on July 28th. Members donned their finest 1920s attire, in homage to the greats of yesteryear, and played with original golf clubs made with wooden hickory shafts to experience how difficult it had been back in the day. Teams of 4 teed off the first, sharing two bags of clubs. Men’s Captain, Les Manship showed he’s still got it, steering a driver down the middle to open the competition. A combination of impressive and indifferent tee shots proceeded down the first, a sign it was going to be a great day. The day was topped off enjoying the Club’s Sunday Carvery, discussing all our Ben Hoganesque drives...

Throughout the day there was some extremely impressive scoring and the competition was eventually won by Ian and Dorothy Coombs, Austin Howes and Dave Whiteside with an outstanding net score of 59. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who took part. A special thank you to Gavin Bottrell who provided the 50 sets of hickory clubs for the day.
