Peter Alliss clocks in at Redditch Golf Club centenary gala

October 15, 2013

BBC Sport's "The Voice of Golf" Peter Alliss was the guest of honour who crowned Redditch Golf Club's most significant anniversary so far by unveiling the Centenary Clock at the club's recent gala dinner. He was welcomed by centenary chairman Robert Silvester, president Bill Keen, centenary captain Tom Sheldon and lady captain Janice Kerr.

Redditch Golf Club was founded in 1913 and the opening of the club was marked by an 18 hole exhibition match between J.H. Taylor, the Open Champion of that year, and George Duncan, the winner of the Belgian Championship.

For its first 59 years, the club's home was the Plymouth Road Pitcheroak golf course, now the town's municipal course, but the construction of the new Bromsgrove Highway resulted in the municipal course being downsized to its current nine hole form and the club moved to the present Callow Hill course in 1972.
