Captain, Mr Mark Thompson

I am both proud and honoured to be this year’s captain, and I wish to extend a warm welcome to all who play the Course, both members and visitors alike. I will try and represent the members, and the club, to the best of my ability, and I look forward to playing with as many of you as I can during my year as captain. I hope you all have a great golfing year both on and off the course.


President, Mr Jim Loynd

Members of Rishton Golf Club, I would like to say how pleased I was to be elected as your President. I will do my upmost to represent the club as have past President’s.

As a Past Captain I found the support and loyalty of you all was a great experience and I am sure it will remain the same during my term as President.

As always I am very proud to represent Rishton Golf Club as Lady Captain  and will do everything in my power to promote the club and encourage new ladies to join us. We have the reputation of having the friendliest ladies and the best prize tables and organise great social events and we hope to build on that.
