St Judes Golf Society
St Jude's Golf Society
It was in the area now known as the ‘Confession Box' that the Golfing Society was born. After weeks of chatting and planning, the ‘founding eight' consumed gallons of Arthur's Brew as they drew up the articles for the new body.
While golf was the number one priority, right from the start the new committee placed emphasis on fun. And what fun has been had by all in its years of existence. After a few months of intense planning, the calendar for 1994 was announced on February 16th and the honour of staging the first outing fell to Castlewarden. Liam Larking came up with the sponsorship from Gouldings.
This Gouldings trophy is awarded on the first outing every year The first Classic was staged at St Margarets on 27th August, 1997. It was a splendid success and raised a huge sum for the club.
The St Judes Golf Classic has now become part and parcel of the club year and is an anuual event.
