Captain's Message

Mi fydd yn bleser bod yn Capten Clwb Baron Hill yn 2016, edrychaf ymlaen i’r flywyddyn i ddod.

 It is a great honour to be 2016 Baron Hill Golf Club Captain - it is not with trepidation but with pride & excitement that I take up the challenge.  I am a local who was born & brought up in Beaumaris, on completion of my studies I was lucky enough to return to Ynys Mon.  I am married to Nia  & have two children Ffion & Ioan, both Nia & Ffion play at the club.  My Captain’s Charity for the year is Mon Dolphins disabled swimming club, my son’s swimming club.
 
My first experience of the club was as a caddy for the then vice-captain Mr Ken Rawlinson during the 1987 Captain’s Day. I joined the club as a junior in 1988 some 28 years ago; if I had to describe the club that would be simple it is like an old friend, over the years the club has not changed - volunteers still give their free time to ensure the club’s smooth running we have a great team.  How would I describe the course, it is widely known that our club is the oldest 9 hole privately owned club in the UK, it is a challenging heathland course with spectacular views of the Snowdonia Mountain Range.
 
The course is not long with 2 par 3’s & 7 par 4’s but has many hazards cleverly positioned to provide a really good test of golf. If I had to choose my favourite holes then the 3rd hole is a great test for category one players, the 5th is a lovely par 3 demanding accuracy which can be tough if the wind blows, the 6th is a great dog-leg & the 9th is a tough closing hole with spectacular views towards Puffin Island & also has the only sand bunker on the course!
 
Well that’s it from me enjoy your game & if you only have 2 hours for a quick round of golf give our 9 hole course a try I can guarantee you will enjoy it.
Diolch yn fawr, gwelwn i chi ar y cwrs!
Steven J Matthews

Mr. Captain's Drive In

Charles Brimecombe the 2015 club captain's drive-in took place on 22nd March to herald the start of the Men’s Golf season. Charles hit a perfect drive 168 yards down the middle of the fairway he was helped on the day by past captain Glyn Davies & Vice captain Steven Matthews. Club Champion Ian Jones got in on the act shooting a 1 over par 69 Gross to claim the prize on the day, a great start to another season at the club established in the 1880’s.
