Welcome to the web site of the Bolton & District Society of Golf Captains, celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year.
The Society was formed in 1959, to maintain and develop the bonds made by club captains in their year of office.
Bolton & District Society of Golf Captains now consists of 14 affiliated clubs, and a membership of over 300.
Many thanks to the many Bolton Golf Captains who represented our Society in this years annual matches with the societies of Golf Captains from Liverpool, Manchester and Bury
In the latest of these matches against Manchester at Whitefield GC and Bury at Walmersley GC, strong performances from our Bolton team kept the matches tight and competitive throughout the day. Unfortunately in both matches our team came a close second, and so relinquished the Harken Trophy (Manchester) and the Challenge Trophy (Bury).
The Manchester match was held on a bright and breezy day and found the Whitefield course in great condition, leading to some superb golf by both sides. Even some later showers did nothing to dampen the quality on show. Manchester Captains and the Whitefield Cub where excellent hosts, with a lovely meal and top drawer banter available throughout the day. Pictured is our Captain and President with the Captain of the Manchester Society, Daniel Stone, and current Club Captain of Whietfield GC, David Lewis.
More pictures of the players are available on our News page
The Bury match at Walmersley was played on a windy day, to the benefit of the windmill at the local farm, and proving tricky conditions for those playing in the match. Good victories by Bolton Captains from Horwich and Dunscar were not enough to overcome a Bury team in good form, notably from some of the Captains who play for both Bolton and Bury through the season.
Unfortunately a small accident the day meant that our President was unavailble for the event, and thanks to Jim Cunliffe for stepping in at the last minute to partner our Captain, Ian Brooks. Jim and Ian are pictured with the Bury Society Captain, Clive Varley, and President, Bryan Knowles.
