Traditionally Captains week is the highlight of the golfing year and It's no exception at Pontardawe Golf Club. Daily competitions have been run and entertainment for all categories of golfers with some terrific prizes on offer to the winners. The weather is looking a bit damp for Saturday, but I'm sure that wont dampen the members spirits or the support for a very popular captain.
Thanks to Jamie Probert and his ground staff's hard work, the course is in absolutely pristine condition, lovely lush fairways, with greens running true and fast. Pontardawe Golf Club is certainly standing up to its claim of being one of the top most challenging golf courses in South Wales with all our members and visitors having nothing but praise for the layout and condition of the course and the welcome they receive.
Merion would like to pass on his thanks to the all the members for the unprecedented support he has received in his captains year so far and insists a lot of things would not have been possible without that support.
Support your 2015 Captain Meirion Davies this Saturday 22nd for all the hard work he has put in this year and make his captains day a day to remember and treasure for all.
