In the summer of 1990, local historian and avid golfer Bill Richards voluntarily wrote and researched a fully comprehensive  160 page history of our golf club, which is one of the longest standing in west wales. He was made an honorary life member for his commendable achievement in producing this.

Although some members may still have the original print copy, any digital version has been lost in the midst of time, so to honour the memory of Mr Bill Richards, and to provide this reading to members and visitors alike, we have decided to transcribe and release this book a chapter at a time on our website - here!
