Senior members donate Centenary Bridge to Redditch Golf Club

November 4, 2013

The Mayor of Redditch, Cllr Wanda King, has officially opened a special bridge to mark the centenary of the town's private members' golf club.

Redditch Golf Club was founded in 1913 and to mark the centenary, members of RAGS, Redditch Aged Golfers Section, have helped to commemorate this landmark year in a lasting way.

The Centenary Bridge now crosses the stream which separates the 18 th fairway from the green and has been donated by RAGS' members.

The bridge was designed by members Peter Nash and Alan Burgess and the structure was built in nearby Alcester by Selfab Welding & Engineering Ltd, with Alan Burgess, who was the joint owner of an investment casting company, supervising the installation.

Cllr King was greeted at the Lower Grinsty Lane Club at Callow Hill by Centenary Captain Tom Sheldon and committee members including Club President Bill Keen, Jill Smith, Derek Taylor, Alan Burgess, Jeff Rose and Peter Nash.

Club secretary Stuart Mee said: "This was a really fitting way to mark the Centenary - a fine gesture that will remind members and visitors of the history of the club every time they cross over to the 18 th green.

"And with local design and engineering behind it, I am sure our members will still be crossing the Centenary Bridge in another hundred years!"
