2019 SENIORS’ CAPTAIN - David Brierley

After a brief affair with membership of HPGC in the mid eighties, work commitments forced David to put golf on hold until his retirement in 2013.

A lawyer by background, David spent his last 15 years as Chief Executive of the West Mercia Police Authority. David has lived in Weston for over 35 years, his first neighbour being one Sandy Lyle. David admits that sadly nothing of Sandy's golfing prowess rubbed off but the Hawkstone welcome remains as strong as ever.

David commented “Hawkstone is a quite sublime place to play golf with both courses offering breathtaking views ,stunning scenery and sufficient challenges to satisfy the most demanding golfers. However the friendliness and comradeship of the Seniors Section has been the most outstanding feature of my experience of Hawkstone as a Club and needless to say I was delighted to accept the honour of Captaincy of the Seniors in 2019.”

The First Hole in One of the Year by a Member?

Past President & Past Captain Gerald Smith achieves the third ace of his golfing career!

Playing in the Seniors’ Match v Wrexham on Tuesday 05 June Gerald used a five iron on the 166 yard Needles’ Eye 9th hole on the Hawkstone course.

Gerald has the dubious privilege of being the longest serving member of the Club having joined on 01 January 1957. His first ace was achieved in 1979 on the 3rd Cricket Pitch hole and his second was on the 9th Welsh View hole on the Windmill/Championship course in 2003.

And, the Seniors beat Wrexham by 8 1/2 to 1 1/2!
