2015 marks the Quasquicentennial of St Enodoc Golf Club and to mark the occasion there will be a 125th Anniversary Golf Week from Sunday 28th June the details of which will be announced by the Captain in good time.

He is however keen that you especially note in your diary the final day of the golf events namely - Sunday July 5th. On this day South of England Hickory golf will be providing the club with up to 55 sets of fully restored Hickory Clubs, including 4 left handed sets, in replica Leather and Canvas Bags. Each set will consist of 6 clubs, typically a Brassie or Spoon, a Long or Mid Iron, a Mashie, Mashie-Niblick, Niblick and a Putter. We will probably play a Scramble (one or two sets per 4 ball) using a composite course, starting on the Holywell for 11 holes then moving onto the Church (using forward tees) to complete 18 holes. Period dress will be optional! The day will be rounded off with a social function.

For those who have not used hickory clubs this is an opportunity and a  challenge not to be missed !
