MESSAGE FROM TIMOTHY G APEL, 2018/19 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 Gathurst, with over 270 members taking part in the competition. The AGM followed the golf, which was held at the DW Stadium. A magnificent day, and on behalf of all our members I would like to thank Gathurst Golf Club for giving us all such a warm welcome.
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 Formby Golf Club, where I have been a member for 31 years.
Since coming into office I have been having a magnificent time, with a highlight so far being invited to the Open Championship at Carnoustie.
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 was held in York. It was the first time I had attended the Autumn meeting. Next year there will be a stronger team from Formby to contest for Honours!
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 play golf or socialise with as many members as possible.
Fairways and Greens.
