Message from the Chairman

To all who are interested in volunteering to carry out work on the golf course or on the premises of the club I would like to thank you for your interest and support.

Due to advice from both BIGGA and Wales Golf at present we have been advised that the club should not allow volunteers to carryout work on the course  or clubhouse premises

This advice is given and accepted by the club, with the current legislation in place.

Again I would thank you for your support and interest and should we be advised of a change of circumstances in the coming weeks I will keep you informed

Gareth J Evans

Chairman

COVID-19 Update

Following the Governments announcement and advice from Wales Golf and other Golf Clubs within South Wales it is clear that Golf Clubs, courses and facilities must close with immediate effect.

Keeping Maesteg Golf Course  open is no longer compatible with Government Policy, which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency

The Green Staff under the Head Green Keeper will continue to carry out the necessary works to ensure that the course when it re-opens is in as good a condition as the current circumstances allow.

We all have a responsibility to ensure safety of family friends and colleagues.

Keep safe

Bowmen v The Rest

It is with great pleasure that the ‘Rest’ of Maesteg Golf Club came back from a shaky start to obliterate the ‘Bowmen’ for the 2018 game.

The Bowmen were without their illustrious Captain due to his unavailability.

A spokesman for the Bowmen put the heavy defeat down to a lack of support and leadership from their non-playing Captain (lack of Bow Cans on the 1st Tee) had an effect on the result.

The Bowmen are now of to hot weather training in Dorset

20 Years of BOWMEN

The Club have once more thrown down the challenge to Mr Leigh Parry’s ‘Bowmen’. The match will be played Saturday 2nd March 2019 followed by entertainmentfrom ‘pardon Madame’.

All club members and past ‘Bowmen’ are invited to celebrations in tehbar afterwards (approx 17:00).

The Bowmen are current holders of the trophy – ‘can the club cause an upset to address the imbalance’
