MESSAGE FROM THOMAS KING, 2017/18 CAPTAIN OF THE SOCIETY OF LIVERPOOL GOLF CAPTAINS
Welcome to the website of the Society of Liverpool Golf Captains.
The Society was founded in 1908 and as of today boasts 27 clubs within its structure, with a membership close to 675 Captains and Past Captains.
This year the Annual Competition was held at Hesketh Golf Club, with over 270 members taking part in the competition. The AGM followed the golf, which was held in a marquee at the club.
To be asked to take up office as Captain of the Society was somewhat unbelievable, it is a great honour for me personally and also Gathurst Golf club where I have been a member for 30 years.
Since that date I have been having a splendid time. One of the highlights of the year so far was to be invited to the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale on Thursday 20th July.
I would like to thank the Past Captains of the Society for having faith in me by bestowing upon me the prestigious position of Society Captain.
This year the Autumn Meeting will be held at Celtic Manor in South Wales - another prestigious venue where I am sure all those attending will enjoy good golf and great friendship and hopefully good weather.
The courtesy that has been shown to me by the members of the Society, plus all the cards and good wishes has been quite overwhelming.
I look forward to the year ahead and hope to pay golf or socialise with as many members as possible.
