I joined Hawkstone Park almost 20 years ago, when our current club President, David Greaves was Club Captain, following a relocation to Shropshire for business reasons, from my home town of Widnes Cheshire, in the early 1990’s. A scouting trip for a corporate golf day brought me to Hawkstone Park on a beautiful summer’s day. Whilst enjoying a drink on the Terrence, overlooking the magnificent view across the Hawkstone course, I was hooked and being encouraged by my wife Jane, I visited the Golf Shop and signed-up there and then to become a member. A decision I have never had any cause to regret.

Here at Hawkstone Park we are truly blessed with 2 wonderful yet contrasting golf courses that many a member, myself included, find hard to select their favourite course. Indeed this is a lively topic often heard being discussed in the recently opened Lyles’ Bar, that celebrates 2 of the clubs better well-known members Sandy and his father Alex.

As I look forward to the year ahead, our new Lady Captain, Cheryl and I are pleased to announce our combined Captain’s charities for 2022 are The Renal Unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, to which Cheryl has a close affinity and the local branch of The Samaritans for who my daughter Fiona is a volunteer Listener. Cheryl and I hope to see some of you at the charitable events planned throughout the next 12 months.

I am extremely humbled and honoured to be the Captain of this wonderful club that has such a rich history; and with the continued support of the Management Committee and all section sub-committees, will strive to continue to drive the club forward throughout the next 12 months to the benefit all the members.


Stewart Mackness won the Cub Championship beating Tim Jones 3 and 1 after a battle over 36 holes.

Stewart played the most consistent golf throughout the two rounds; he birdied the first on the Hawkstone course to go one up, Tim drew level paring the second by the 8th. Stewart was then two up but a poor shot on 9 saw him go to the turn 1 up. On the back nine things remained tight and the round ended with Stewart 1 up.

The afternoon round on the Championship was close and for the first time in the match Tim went one up on the 3rd and by the 7th they were all square. Unfortunately Tim was in trouble after his second shot on the 8th but came back and won the 9th when Stewart found the water. Stewart then won 12 and 13 and the match finished on 17 when Tim found sand.

A great watch for spectators played in a very sporting manner.

Congratulations Stewart a new name on the trophy.
