County Captains Day is a Huge Success at Gloucester Golf Club

Posted: 15/07/2019

Friday saw Gloucester Golf Club host without doubt its most prestigious event, we had over 100 Captains of Golf Clubs in Gloucestershire playing, Paul Drinkwater past President and Captain of Gloucester Golf Club has been given the honour of becoming Captain of the County Captains for 2019 and as per tradition he hosts a Golf Day.

We have received alot of praise for the day, i am very proud of the way the Golf Club presented the day, there is alot of work that goes into such a prestigious event, the presentation of the new 1st Tee looks fantastic and hopefully now gives a great first impression, and we needed to ensure that impression is still left when people are leaving the club.

The whole team of staff were amazing, Joe and his staff as without doubt the course is probably as good as i have ever seen it in over 25 years, and these comments were also said during Paul Drinkwaters speech and by numerous players.

Nikki organised the bar and at no point did anyone look under pressure, there was never more than a couple minutes wait for drinks or tables to be cleared and re set for the next guests to eat.

Cliff Powell who organised all the food and cooked the meal was brilliant, we received so many compliments about the Golf Club from the moment people arrived to the moment they left which was brilliant it was a great day which not only myself everyone associated with Gloucester Golf Club should be very proud. 

I would like to thank Paul for his personal email thanking myself and all the staff which is greatly appreciated and Gloucester Golf Club were delighted to host his very special day.

The winners of the day were Robert Payne and John Phillip who are both ex Captains from Cotswold Hills.


Dear Keith,

On behalf of my wife Maggie, Myself and the Gloucestershire Golf Captains Association we wish to thank you for the magnificent day we held at the club on Friday the 12th of July.

As a member of some 25 years standing, a past Captain and President it was a very emotive day. An Honour for myself and Gloucester Golf Club

As I stated in the room I believe the presentation across the board on the day was totally professional and superior to anything I had seen during my time as a member.

You and your staff conducted yourselves in a manner that was professional from start to finish. The course was in excellent condition and the all important first impression wow factor was very high.

From the staff in uniform, to the clean and fresh look of the 1st Tee and patio area I thank you for the effort and can advise you that numerous compliments regarding the presentation were received by me on the day.

I am also fully aware of the effort that you personally put in to deliver on this particular project and for that I offer you my personnel thanks. Your efforts made me a very proud Ex Captain / President of Gloucester Golf Club.

I will ensure that a sum of money goes behind the bar for all concerned to have a drink on me as a thank you for a truly fantastic day that Maggie and I will cherish for many years to come.

With Sincere Best Wishes

Paul Drinkwater.
