RALEIGH Golf Society

Following the closure of the HMS Raleigh Golf Cartel, a new private Raleigh Golf Society was formed on 8 March 2024. In recognition of his efforts to establish the original Service Golf Cartel in 1995, WOPT M Shone BEM has been elected as Honorary Life President of the new Society.

A new Constitution and Committee has been approved and elected respectively at the inaugural AGM and the new Society will take the form of a not-for-profit unincorporated private members organisation. Although no longer directly affiliated to the Service or MoD, the new Society will follow the principles set in the provision of a golf facility for Serving, Ex-Serving personnel and MOD Employees residing within the East Cornwall and West Devon area.

The new Raleigh Golf Society will continue to build on the original Cartel offer which currently boasts some 8 golf courses in the local area; St Mellion Estates, Lanhydrock, China Fleet Country Club, Boringdon, Trethorne, Dainton Park, Carlyon Bay and Staddon Heights Golf Clubs.

The Society will cap its membership at 140 members from Serving, Ex-Serving and MOD Civilians, as well as a small number of Associate members approved by the Committee. To uphold the Service ethos, membership priority will be given to military personnel serving and veterans. The Competition and Events Secretary will continue to run 4 charity and fun competitions over the year, which will include the most prestigious event in our calendar, ”The Christmas Turkey Trot” competition for our chosen charity, UHP-Play Team (The Children’s Ward Derriford Hospital).

The Society welcomes new members including those who are new to the Service or to the game, however, due to demand and a long waiting list, the Committee have decided to close membership applications for the foreseeable future. If you would like more information, please contact the Membership Secretary.
