Brigantes Golf Day, Ganton, North Yorkshire
Tuesday 25th April 2017 – 10.15 for 11.15
The Brigantes Golf Day is at Ganton Golf Club near Malton in North Yorkshire, one of the world’s top 100 golf courses. It is one of only three British courses with the distinction of hosting the Ryder Cup, the Curtis Cup and the Walker Cup, and was the venue for the 2016 English Men’s Amateur Championship.
Open to all Liverymen with a recognised club handicap, a very favourable rate has been negotiated for a superb day’s golf followed by an early two course supper. If Liverymen would like to stay overnight on the Monday, which several Liverymen will be doing, the Greyhound Inn at the end of the Club drive is ideal and modestly priced. Places are limited to 40 and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Details and a booking form are attached.
Over 1,200 Liverymen of the City of London are resident in the North of England. Forty one Companies have ten or more Liverymen in this area, to which should be added the many Liverymen throughout the UK and worldwide who regard the North of England as their spiritual home by adoption, birth right or interest.
The aim of Brigantes is to enable Liverymen of all Companies to meet together in the North, especially those less able to travel regularly to London, and so the Brigantes Breakfast was born – the name deriving from the Brigantes tribe which occupied a similar geographical area in pre-Roman times. All City of London Liverymen are welcome at Brigantes occasions.
