Horwich Golf Club Welcomes our 2016 Captain JEFF SAWYER. Jeff started playing golf around 10 years ago and was instantly smitten by it and joined Horwich Golf Club in 2009. Jeff says he was honored to be asked to be Captain of one the oldest club in the BGA and having retired last year now feels he can give 100% commitment to the role. Jeff's chosen charity for 2016 will be the Christie Foundation, who do fantastic work in the field of cancer care locally .The club will be doing all it can to raise funds for this very worthwhile cause and will continue to build on the achievements of previous years. Founded in 1895, by staff of the local Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company, the Club professes to be the oldest member of the Bolton Golf Association still using the same course. Horwich Golf Club is located just north of Bolton in Horwich nestled between Chorley Old Road and Victoria Road. Designed by George Lowe this hidden gem is a small, tight and tricky undulating moorland course with 18 tees playing to 9 excellent greens. From the higher holes it provides splendid views across the Lancashire basin. The course is in the best shape ever and is only going to get better. This year the club is working in partnership with ISS Services who provide our course management. We take immense pride in making certain that the course is always presented in a fabulous condition and despite the best attempts of the weather this course is seldom closed even when other local courses may be. Both Jeff and Tony would like to welcome everyone to Horwich Golf Club, either in a playing capacity or by joining us at our regular social functions or just popping in for a drink at the club house where you will be guaranteed a warm and friendly welcome.
