Gerrards Cross Golf Club

GX Centenary Year is underway


At the preview of the Centenary Timeline Exhibition on New Year's Eve Men's Captain, Chris North gave a brief address. p He explained that attendance  had been restricted to comply with the club's covid safety guidelines. Those invited were, club officials, masterminds of the exhibition accompanied by partners and guests.

Chris congratulated  the co-creators, former Chair & Ladies' Captain, Catriona Porter and current President, Brian Roake, They also provided all of the  research and creative effort required to mount a major project of this nature. The style and staging of the exhibition in the newly named Centenary Room are equally impressive. 

Further praise for Catriona and Brian for their publishing skills with the recent release of the latest Centenary edition of the History of Gerrards Cross Golf Club hardback. This is an updated version of the original published many years ago by the late Jim Gregson, crime author and former Captain at GX.

Sue Holdship, Ladies' Captain  declared  the Centenary Exhibition open to members and guests. Catriona and Brian's duties not quite over as they added Guides for the assembled group to their CVs . Make sure you take up the invitation from  Sue.



On Sunday 2nd January the hospitality for the Centenary Flag Raising event  was served  indoors due to wet weather. Very well attended as the clubhouse was busy boosted by incoming players from the New Year Team competition. In fading light the rain stopped in time for a few hardy members to join the flag party and fanfare  bugler, Garnet Ruddell  at the flagstaff. Flag master, Chris Martin was in charge
