Welcome to Worlebury Golf Club
It is a great honour and a privilege to become the 112th Captain of this fantastic Golf Club in 2023.
The first Captain, Rev. J Doorbar was elected in 1912 and since then, the long line of Captains have dedicated their time and effort, to make Worlebury Golf Club what it is today, a friendly, yet competitive Golf Club.
Our Harry Varden designed course has stunning views across both the Bristol Channel and the Mendip Hills. Although not the longest, it provides a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Due to our elevated position, our greens drain quickly which means golf can be played all year round.
Worlebury prides itself in having an excellent spread of sections with Ladies, Seniors and Juniors all competing at County level as well as a very strong mixed section. I would like to wish the respective Captains, Carol Cockeram, Stephen Cockeram and Tyler Reeves every success during 2023.
Worlebury are the current holders of the Somerset Bowl and Pickeridge Cup which are the 2 County scratch competitions. In the history of these competitions, we are the first to hold both trophies at the same time.
We also have strong representation in three Avalon leagues and our Stragglers team continues to compete well.
Away from the course, our Clubhouse provides a friendly and welcoming family atmosphere with excellent catering and bar facilities. Our strong social membership is testament to this.
This year, all sections of the Club are joining together to raise funds for the chosen Club charity Macmillan Cancer Support. This is a charity very close to my heart, as I was diagnosed with Cancer nearly 4 years ago and continue to use the services Macmillan provide.
