Redditch Golf Club celebrates 100 not out!

February 5, 2014

Redditch Golf Club is celebrating recruiting more than 100 new members in its 100 th year. 

The news caps a fantastic year for the club which has seen a programme of celebrations culminating in the unveiling of the Centenary Clock by legendary golf commentator Peter Allis, who also spoke at the club's annual dinner. 

And to leave a legacy to be enjoyed by all who play the Lower Grinsty Lane course, the club's senior members - the "RAGS", the Redditch Aged Golfers Section - donated a special bridge which crosses the stream which separates the 18 th fairway from the green. 

The bridge was officially opened by the Mayor of Redditch, Cllr Wanda King. 

The club's head of marketing John Burchill said: "The Centenary Year has really revitalised the club and motivated everyone involved to put on a very special year long programme of events.

"This has seen us launch our very first Corporate membership which provides very competitively priced golf for local companies, and achieve a huge landmark of recruiting more than 100 members in our 100 th year.

"But this is only the start of a revitalisation of the club and its facilities, and we have recently moved the administration of the club into the Stewards house which will enable us to further expand our member and corporate propositions in the main clubhouse building. 

"Following our recent AGM, a new president, chairman and streamlined committee structure has been elected to take us forward in to the next hundred years. We are committed to continuing the work headed by president Bill Keen and Centenary Captain Tom Sheldon," he said.
