Many thanks to all who attended to make the event special.


In particular, the Captain of Captains, Mr Jim McCaffrey, who stole the nearest the pin prize on the Par 3, 11th Hole by recording, what we believe to be, the first "Hole-In-One" at an A.M.M.G.C.C. event.

Congratulations and thank you Mr. Captain for your kind gesture of

......."liquid refreshment" in celebration.


A big thank you also, to the Ladies, as guests of the Association; many having played in previous years and will surely play again.

2016 Captain's '4' - Completed (sort of!)

at

BOOTLE GOLF COURSE

on

Wednesday 15th June


The Captains '4' competition began well, for most.

Despite a few showers in the morning, the course looked to have held up well.

Unfortunately, the weather moved back in before the lead group had reached the turn.

A 15 minute deluge soaked the course and with rumbles of thunder directly overhead the decision was made to evacuate the course for safety.

Further incessant rain forced a cancellation.

A fabulous buffet was provided for those who proceeded on to St Roberts Bellarmine Social Club.

The Captain’s 4 competition will be replayed as The Captain’s Choice competition later in the year.

2015 - Completed


Well, gentlemen, that was 2015.

We must give a great deal of thanks to The Captain of Captains Mr Anthony O'Donovan,

his helpers and the catering staff of Irby Golf Club for the hospitality shown to the Association.


We appreciate, immensely, all their hard work and friendship throughout.

Congratulations and well done!


The golf course itself, proved to be a stern test (as ever) and we thank, appreciate and praise the Greenstaff for presenting the course in fabulous condition and

the club professional for looking after us on our events.


It goes without saying that the events take a great deal of organisation

and time which we all sometimes take for granted.

The Association Committee have worked tirelessly to ensure that the year's events have gone

according to plan, for which they also must be congratulated.



We now welcome in 2016 with open arms.



The 37th Annual General Meeting was held this year at

LEE PARK GOLF CLUB

Childwall Valley Rd, Liverpool L27 3YA

on WEDNESDAY 27th JANUARY


The  evening was well attended as ever, to witness the inauguration of our

Captain of Captains for 2016, Mr Jim McCaffrey (Bootle Golf Club).

We must offer our congratulations thanks, once again, to Tony O'Donovan for a wonderful 2015.

We hope, in fact, we know he enjoyed it as much as we did.

We wish the new Captain a successful and as enjoyable year in office and look forward,

with anticipation to playing Bootle Golf Course.
