Golf Society 2016 schedule

Farmers Club Golf Society programme for 2016 announced 

Golf 2016  

The Farmers Club Golf Society has announced a full programme of events for 2016 (see below), following a highly successful year in 2015. 

During 2015 the society visited many lovely courses, with team match highlights being victories over the British Veterinary Golf Society, the Farmers Members of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers at Muirfield and the West Riding NFU.  

The Club Championship at Blackwell was well supported along with the Autumn Meeting at Llanymynech and Oswestry. John Gittins hosted a superb at home party during the Autumn Meeting, which was a wonderful finale to the completion of his term of office.  

Mike Broomby will assume the Captaincy in 2016. He has been a member of the Farmer's Club since 1978, having joined during his time as head of the UK Animal Health business of Wellcome plc. He wishes to extend his thanks to John and the conscientious manner in which he carried out his duties as Captain.  

Mike looks forward to his term as Captain and will endeavour to maintain the standards set by John and his predecessors. He would also like to record his thanks to Martin Shaw for all his work as the Club's Golf Society Secretary and is grateful that Martin will continue in this role for 2016
