HMS RALEIGH Golf Society
HMS RALEIGH Golf Cartel (Now: HMS RALEIGH Golf Society), was formed by WO(PT) Micky Shone BEM, in 1995. The Society’s main principle was to provide a golf facility for Serving and Ex Serving personnel and MOD Civilians residing within the East Cornwall area.
The Cartel (Society) started off with Membership of St Mellion Golf & Country Club, with the ability to play the Nicklaus and Resort Courses, which they are now known. The Bond family who owned St Mellion Golf & Country Club later purchased Lanhydrock Hotel & Golf Club and Looe Golf Club, therefore, 3 superb local golf courses then became available to the membership. During the forthcoming years, we have added China Fleet Golf & Country Club, Boringdon and Trethorne Golf clubs.
The Society currently has 130 members from Serving, Ex Serving and MOD Employees, as well as a small number of Associate members agreed by the HMS RALEIGH Golf Society Committee. There are usually about 4 charity and fun competitions arranged by the Society Match/Fixture Manager over the year. The most prestigious event in our calendar is ”The Christmas Turkey Trot” competition for our chosen charity, “The Children’s Ward Derriford Hospital”
HMS RALEIGH Golf Society has been greatly admired by many from numerous Service Establishments within the UK who have mirrored where possible its concept of providing affordable golf membership.
The Society welcomes new members including those who are new to the Service or to the game. If you would like to join please click here or contact the Membership Secretary.
