A Céad Míle Fáilte to Knightsbrook Golf Club to Andrew Barr the Captain of The Society of Liverpool Golf Captains 2022/23 and the 200-strong group of golfers from The Society of Liverpool Golf Captains who are on their second visit to Trim. The society last visited the town in 2012 and was scheduled to return in 2020 but had to postpone because of the Covid 19 outbreak. The captains will play Royal Tara, Headford and Knightsbrook and there will be a gala dinner at Knightsbrook Golf Club on Wednesday, September 8th where members will dress in their formal red attire.
The Society had its inception in the desire of Captains and Past Captains of the Clubs on Merseyside to meet in competition once a year and afterwards at dinner in order to continue the happy associations formed during their periods of office. The first meeting held on 17 June 1908 was at the instigation of the Woolton Golf Club which invited Captains and Past Captains from local Clubs to participate. The clubs represented were Birkdale, Bromborough, Chester, Formby, Freshfield, Hesketh, Heswall, Leasowe, New Brighton, Ormskirk, Royal Liverpool, Southport & Ainsdale, Wallasey, West Derby, West Lancashire and Woolton.
