Club Captain

On behalf of the club, let me extend a warm welcome to Lamberhurst GC.
I feel privileged to have been elected as Captain of this club which this year will have existed for 132 years and whose course never ceases to throw up new challenges and will always ensure your concentration remains switched on throughout the round.
Set on the Kent and Sussex border and in an AONB with gently rolling hills there is always a view to distract players when things are not going quite as hoped, or just to admire and relax between shots when all is well with the world.
Lamberhurst presents members and visitors alike with an interesting challenge for golfers of all abilities, with a premium on placement over length, before hitting an approach into the undulating greens, which will test most golfers’ skills to the maximum, and is certainly a course that needs to be learnt to build a good score.
Lamberhurst is a true members club, offering competitions, events and matches throughout the year as well as the usual social golf. A great atmosphere can always be found at the 19th hole where a warm welcome and cold refreshment awaits.
After the challenges of the pandemic over the last few years we are looking forward to establishing a full program of events during 2022/2023 and we welcome your involvement.
For our guests, visitors and societies there is a friendly atmosphere which awaits you before, and after your round. We encourage everyone to enjoy the friendly service of our hospitality in the clubhouse or on our patio, which offers fantastic views across the course and local countryside, which is especially welcoming on a warm summers evening.
Our aim in 2022/ 2023 is to become one of the first clubs locally to be acknowledged for sustainable golf. John McKenzie, the former club captain during our 125-year-old anniversary, is investigating the GEO Foundation and will be the club’s ambassador championing this project. (Sustainable Golf | Courses | Developments | Tournaments | GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf ) We encourage all members to support this initiative.
As Captain, my chosen charity for this year is F.O.R.M.E (Fund for Osteopathic Research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis). “Osteopathic treatment for M.E. is only available as a private patient. So many sufferers go undiagnosed or have little to no help with their condition. Our vision is to fund the research necessary to enable universal access, via the NHS”. (
