Founded in 1993, St Peter Golf Society (a.k.a. The Flame of the West!) are a group of golfers affiliated to St Peter Football & Sports Club.
A Note from the Captain…
The Society currently has in the region of 90 members and our playing calendar has fixtures at every golf course in Jersey.
We are grateful to La Moye Golf Club where we start our playing season with the La Moye Classic which is a great day out for both golf and charity. Our season then continues with our Order of Merit played at Les Mielles, Wheatlands, St Clement and Les Ormes.
The season culminates at The Royal Jersey Golf Club at Grouville in December and we thank them for hosting our team event that also has a strong charitable emphasis.
During the season St Peter’s Golf Society has three teams playing in the Condor Ferries Golf League at Les Mielles Golf and Country Club.
Sadly we didn’t have a team contesting the Final in 2011, in 2010 we were proud to supply both finalists.
The Society calendar also has fixtures against other Societies as well as a 3 Club challenge, a Tombstone, a Texas Scramble, the Captains v Vice Captain match, an A B C match and other competitions such as our individual knockout competition.
In 2008, our 15th Anniversary year, the Society contributed in excess of £4,000 to charity. In 2009 we raised a similar amount, with £1,000 coming from our Royal Jersey competition alone.
In 2010 we raised £2,000 between all of our competitions, including £532 at our Christmas event and in 2011 we raised well over £1,000, (including nearly £1,000 at our Christmas event alone).
I would like to thank our members and our generous sponsors for supporting St Peter’s Golf Society.
I look forward to your continued support in the future.
Dan Hare, Captain
