Club Captains Message

May 16 2016

Welcome to Rotherham Golf Club

I was honoured to be elected Captain of this prestigious golf club on Tuesday 12th April 2016.

Just 2 days earlier, on Sunday 10th April our very own, Danny Willett, put on the Master Green Jacket and etched his name forever in to the golfing history books.

Danny joined Rotherham GC as a junior member in 2005 and members watched and wondered as he progressed from Sheffield Union to Yorkshire to England player before turning professional in 2008, when at the time he was ranked No.1 amateur in the world. He is quoted as saying "With its immaculate tree-lined fairways and small greens, Rotherham Golf Club presents a pleasurable, true test of golf at all levels".

The Club was founded in 1903. It is a wonderful, rolling parkland Course with a magnificent neo-gothic Clubhouse dating back to 1814.

The arrival of a new Head Green-keeper, Ben Burrill, in 2014 revitalised the course, restoring it to its rightful place as one of the premier golf courses in the Region. The immaculately cut and shaped fairways and fast, true greens make the venue a must to any would-be visitor to the area.

In the recently refurbished Clubhouse members and visitors enjoy a warm and friendly welcome with first class catering provided by Shaun, Jane and all of their staff.

The Head Professional Gregg Roberts and his assistant Ash Lerigo go that extra mile to attend to all of the needs of both members and visitors alike.

I can promise you that a visit to Rotherham Golf Club is not just about a round of golf... it is a fantastic golfing experience.
