We wish them all well in the coming year.
Joint Captains' Charity 2015
Every year our Men's and Ladies' Captain raise funds for their chosen Charity. Thanks to the enormous amount of hard work by the Fundraising Committee and the Club members this year we raised an amazing £11,250. This was in no small measure due to the Summer Ball which was held at our President's home at Downton House.
We thank you all for your support.

100 Top Golf Courses
Top 5 Golf Courses in Herefordshire 2015"
Kington has retained its position as number one in Herefordshire in the Top 100 Golf Courses.
"Kington is a course that revels in something approaching cult status, with architect Tom Doak recently becoming a fan. As the architect says in the latest edition of his book "The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses", "if you enjoy seeing something different, you'll remember Kington long after you've forgotten some of the championship links".
Reputed to be the highest in England, the course lies on Bradnor Hill, with generally wide, largely unshaped fairways playing to bunkerless, narrow greens. It's a quirky layout that won't appear to everybody but if ever a course was designed to afford a fun round of golf then Kington is that very layout.
Defibrillator installed at Kington Golf Club
As you may have seen, the defibrillator is now available for use in its cabinet on the side of the Clubhouse. The defibrillator integrates instructions for use so that in theory anyone can use it. If you have the need, first dial 999 or 112 so that the Emergency Services can respond. In the call, you will also be given the code for the cabinet. This code will also be available on notices inside the Clubhouse. (The code protects the equipment from vandalism.) You should also be able to seek help from the bar or Pro shop.
A number of people will be trained to gain extra confidence in the use of the defibrillator. This will be in the Clubhouse at 7pm, 22nd June. Numbers are not really limited so if you would be willing to be trained please contact Nikki Scott (01544 231209).
You will also see notices on the course advertising the defibrillator.
