The Captains' Gala Evening

Arriving at the Captains' Gala Evening the guests were met by a vision in black leather with glowing flamingo pink tights. Behind the 60s shades was Captain Maggie - waiting at the top of the barroom steps to greet the guests and welcome them to what was to be a great evening.  The bar was humming with excitement - the dress code of smart casual being ignored by many of the ladies who were dressed exceedingly smartly in their colourful, fashionable and elegant summer frocks.

Thanks to all those who played in the event or contributed with sponsorship and to the club for hosting.

Kenilworth at Minchinhampton May 2018

On a beautifully sunny day the gentlemen of Kenilworth visited their twin course in Minchinhampton.  Having been created back in 1889 the 2 clubs celebrated their joint centenary in 1989 which initiated a yearly golf day together alternating between the two clubs.  This year it was the turn of Kenilworth to play at the delightfully picturesque club set on top of the Cotswold hills of Gloucestershire.  ... read more

This year Mayor Kate Dickson has two charities she is supporting, firstly Birth & Babies, the new midwifery led unit at Warwick hospital (she herself is a midwife), and secondly youth activities at The Kenilworth Centre. Kate's husband Richard worked for the charity CORD who were Pat Ryan's charity when he was Mayor for the first golf day - quite a coincidence. £2897 was raised for The Mayors charities - a splendid result. Read more ...

2017 Club Champions

The new format Club Championships, played over two days this weekend, saw 156 players contest the first 18 holes on Saturday, with the 30 best men and 9 best ladies playing the second 18 on Sunday morning.

The Ladies’ Championship saw Liz Brown triumph for the third consecutive year with a score 170. In second place on 177 was Emma Saywell with Toni Shirley in third.

The Men’s Championship was a very exciting contest which saw Richard Keegan, Dean Sparrow and Alex Summers all tie on 150. This led to a sudden death playoff, which disappointingly for Rich he was unable to play. On the first playoff hole, Alex’s chip for birdie just fell short to leave Dean with a 15 foot putt for birdie which he brilliantly holed for him to also claim the title for a third year in a row. Mick Rossborough was a very creditable fourth, just one shot behind. Great support from members saw 50 watching the play off and a full Clubhouse for the presentation and BBQ.

All in all a great event with two worthy champions!

Victory for Kenilworth at Llandrindod Wells

37 golfers travelled to Llandrindod Wells over the weekend and for the first time in over 20 years returned with the coveted Llandrindod shield, having won the annual match in Llandrindod by 11.5 points to 7.5 points.

This tremendous win capped a wonderful weekend, with golf played on a great course over two days in wonderful weather, which enabled us to savour the magnificent views from the golf course. The picture shows Captain Jim McCarthy receiving the shield from Llandrindod captain, Peter Williams.

A great weekend and well done to all participated!

Kenilworth Golf Club receives the Award of Merit

The retiring Mayor Richard Davis presented the 'Award Of Merit For Outstanding Service To The Community' to our Captains Jim & Alison at the Mayor Making Ceremony last month.

This award has only been made about 25 times in the last 75 years and was given to us as a mark of appreciation by the Mayor for the fund raising efforts of Kenilworth Golf Club in raising money for the Mayors annual charity which it has done for the past 10 years by way of the Mayors Golf Day.

Congratulations to all involved.

A Sportsman's Dinner with Angus Fraser

From left to right, Richard Joyce, Kevin Connelly, Malcolm Kelly, Angus Fraser, Ron Guest

England Selector Angus Fraser joined the gentlemen of Kenilworth and their guests for the last Sportsman's Dinner of this season on March 9th.  As Chairman Malcolm Kelly pointed out his name sounds like that of a fellow Scot but Angus was born in Lancashire and then went on to play cricket for Middlesex from 1984 to 2002.  He was selected for England and played in 46 test matches and 42 one day internationals.  He now serves as an England selector.  He is still at Middlesex County Cricket Club, being the Managing Director of Cricket.  He has also spent time as a journalist and as a commentator - and with that background he had a wonderful collection of stories with which to entertain the attendees.

Cinderella and other tragedies ...

An evening with Arsenal and England Star Paul Merson

​​The first Sportsman's Night of the winter season saw a full house for the visit of Paul Merson.  Paul told us of the highlights of his career when he was a part of George Graham's team in the late eighties during which he notched up winners medals for most of the competitions available.  He described the famous victory at Anfield in the last game of the 88-89 season when they needed to win 2-0 to take the title.  He told us of George Graham's strategy for the match which worked out just as he planned it - although they had to wait until the last few seconds of the game for Michael Thomas to score the second goal which brought them the championship.

"Merse" told us of the downside of his career too. Of the time when he received his first pay as an Arsenal player - but was taken to a bookies by another player and lost it all on the same day.  He told of how this led to an addiction  to gambling and of his addiction to drugs too.  He spoke of the days spent with Gazza when they played together at Middlesborough - of the drink and drugs they consumed until they passed out.

Paul left Middlesborough to return south - and went to Aston Villa.  From there he joined Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth and helped them to promotion.  However, he realised that his playing days in the premiership were over so he joined Walsall - first as a player and then took over as manager for a couple of years.

During his career at the top Paul played 21 times for England.  He told us of the time when he scored a penalty for England in the penalty shoot-out with Argentina in the 1998 world cup. When told he was one of the players selected to take a penalty he was really nervous - having missed a previous penalty in a domestic game.  However, Glenn Hoddle - who Paul really rated highly as an England manager - spoke to him and told him that he would not miss.  This boosted his confidence and Glenn was proved to be correct.  Sadly other penalty takers were not so successful and England went out of the tournament.

Paul is now seen as a pundit on Sky television.  He gave some background on how Jeff Stelling seems to have so many pieces of football trivia available for every situation - and also explained the teasing he gets over his inability to pronounce the names of foreign players.

A great selection for Derrick Richardson's first sportsman's night of the winter - well done Derrick.

The Kenilworth Helping Hands Club off to the coast

In Friday 29th April, with the sun shining brightly but a very cold north wind whipping around their ankles nearly 50 members and friends of the Helping Hands Club met near the Clock Island to board the coach which would take them to Caister on Sea, near Great Yarmouth, for their long weekend away.

They were all excited as they met together - talking about who was sharing caravans - who snored the loudest - who had bought the bread - and all those things that friends chat about on such occasions.

Finally they were all assembled and the coach arrived to take them on their trip.  The only hold up was the member from Kenilworth Golf Club who wanted to take a photograph of them. With all the hustle and bustle and the traffic noise it was hard to get them all to smile at the same time.  It didn't help that the sun was shining in their eyes - but here they are ready to go - and ready to board the coach as soon as I got out of the way.

Once again they reiterated their thanks to the Kenilworth Golf Club members who's contributions to last year's Captains' Charity had paid for their holiday.

St George's Day Lunch with the Coventry Morris Dancers

Following an excellent traditional English lunch of Tomato Soup, Roast Beef with Yorkshire pudding & delicious vegetables and Spotted Dick members of the club and their friends were provided traditional English entertainment by the Coventry Morris Men.  With clashing sticks, flying hankies and all the bells and whistles expected, the Morris dancers provided 30 minutes of energetic hops, skips and stomps, interspersed with a couple of clog dances from Nancy (a Morris lady?).
