The Society was set up in 1978 by Hannah Butcher, Shirley Burlingham took over from Hannah and Vivien Cullen continued until 2010. Margaret Bryant continued for two years from 2011 to 2012
The Society was formed to give Past and Present Captains the opportunity to play golf, socialise and to renew acquaintance with their fellow Captains and Past Captains
Membership is open to all Past and Present Captains of Golf Clubs affiliated to the Suffolk Ladies’ County Golf Association. The total membership is of the order of 200. The entry fee is £5.00 and the annual subscription is £5.00 which is due each September. If the membership lapses a new entry fee must be paid.
One Golf Day is held each year on the third Monday in September. The venue is chosen by selecting the Club in alphabetical order, wherever possible. The golf is preceded by a short annual meeting. Four silver salvers are presented to the winning team whose names are engraved on a very attractive Honours Board.
At the moment three matches are played each year. There is an annual match played against a team from the Association of Suffolk Golf Captains. It was a joint idea between Vivienne Cullen and George Skevington, but sadly he died before the match was played so a delightful silver rose bowl was purchased jointly by the two organisations and presented in his memory to the winning team.
Two other matches are played one against the Ladies Past Captains of Essex and the other against the Ladies Past Captains of Cambs & Hunts.
Various items of uniform are available for purchase and further information may be obtained from the Organisers Sally Crosbie or Denise Martin
