Club Captain

As Captain of Mendip Golf Club I welcome you to our website.

It is an honour and a privilege for me to have been elected as Captain of The Mendip Golf Club for 2018. I have been a member of MGC for 38 years and I hope that members old and new enjoy their time at the club as much as I have. MGC was founded on the current site in 1908 and many improvements during the past 110 years have improved and extended the course. I am of course biased but I am confident that we offer some of the best golf in the south west and set out below are some of the reasons why I make that boast.

our wonderful course remains a challenging and enjoyable test for all standards of golfers, made even more memorable by the outstanding views
I believe we have the best fairways in the south west; beautiful to walk on and the golf ball sits up begging to be hit
MGC has an outstanding club professional, Stuart Disney, who leads a strong team providing a range of coaching for all ages and abilities and a well-stocked shop
the clubhouse provides a friendly and comfortable atmosphere perfect for relaxing with friends and for a range of social events during the year
we have very good bar and catering facilities for members, social events, private functions and visiting golf societies
we provide a warm welcome to visiting players and a range of golf packages are available for small groups and larger societies

Our managing secretary, David Nelson, will be pleased to provide further details about MGC and what it can offer if you are not yet a member. If you are interested in becoming a member, or taking up a trial membership, David can arrange for you to look around and provide you with all the necessary information.

Finally, if you are a new member and are trying to find playing partners please contact Stuart Disney on 01749 840570 or me by email john.shakesby@btinternet.com and we will do our best to accommodate you.

                                         ENJOY YOUR GOLF AT MENDIP!
