The 2015 playing season was quite successful for the L’Ancresse Golf Club with a full trophy cabinet and some great social events. The Club has been quite homely thanks to the efforts of Laila and her team and the Christmas atmosphere was brilliant.
I am pleased to report that we still have full membership, despite the current trend in other golf clubs nationally but our waiting list has dropped in recent months. It will be interesting to see if we can maintain our membership levels in 2016. Our friendly club atmosphere certainly works in our favour.
Obviously the future of Golf on L’Ancresse Common will be a major talking point in 2016 and you can rest assured we are doing all we can to secure the future of the course in full cooperation with our friends at the Royal Guernsey Golf Club.
Our competitions have been well supported again this year and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our generous and valued sponsors.
The Club is in great shape and I would like to thank everyone on the Committee, those who have helped run competitions and the many that help with the running of the club.
Congratulations to Alan Collenette for an outstanding year as Captain and I would like to wish Brian Le Tissier, our Captain for 2016, and all members, an enjoyable and successful year.
Enjoying our Golf since 1895
Tony Crawley - President

The Captain and Vice Captain led by example securing a good win and leading the team to a hard fought 5 - 2 victory, three of the wins being by the narrowest of margins.
We look forward to our visit to Alderney later in the year.
