After an uncertain start to the season where, due to dwindling numbers the continuation of the Dowty Wolverhampton Golf Society was in doubt. An influx of new members this year has seen the 55th year nearly completed. Captain Steve Cooksey’s day at The Vale Golf Club will close another chapter in the Societies long & illustrious history. The highlight of this year has been the first ever “weekender”, where 11 of the societies members travelled to Grantham to play and stay at the excellent Belton Woods complex. Indeed the weekend proved to be such a success that plans are already in place for next years fixture & there is also talk of a trip abroad, This season has also seen us visit Church Stretton, Ombersley, The Shropshire & Bewdley Pines amongst others. As ever the Society is always looking to welcome new members & although based in Wolverhampton we travel all over The Midlands looking for a good golfing challenge. Most of our fixtures take place on a Friday afternoon (between 1pm and 2pm) so if you are interested in joining us please feel free to contact for more information.

Gaudet Luce Golf Club

Gaudet Luce – Major host

This is a modern golf and leisure complex that doesn’t like to sit still and the steady growth in popularity of the club since its opening in 1995 has enabled the family ownership to put investment back into the course and facilities.

125 years – South Staffs GC

The South Staffordshire Club is always a special visit. Nestled in the leafy suburbs of Wolverhampton, a traditional members club with a much admired parkland course that never fails to impress. Messrs Vardon, Colt, Braid and more recently Donald Steel have all played their parts in creating a layout that charms, teases and yields a low score very reluctantly.
