Welcome to the Association of Hampshire, Isle of Wight & Channel Islands Golf Club Captains

Our 2024 President, Roger Corkhill (r)
& Captain, Paul Mantell
The Captain and President offer a warm welcome to newly elected Club Captains and hope you decide to join us and enjoy some golf with Past Captains from all over the County.

A brief history of our formation:

The formation of The Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Channel Islands Golf Captains was considered a possibility by Mr. C. R. Jenkin, who was Captain of Brokenhurst Manor and also a Past Captain of Stoneham.  
He had numerous discussions with other Past Captains and in particular Mr. L. G. Hunt, a Past Captain of Brokenhurst Manor.  Both gentlemen felt that there was considerable support to align Hampshire with Past Captains organisations of other Counties.

As a result of their initiative, a meeting was held at the Wessex Hotel, Winchester, on the 16th November 1972.  It was attended by 31 Past and Present Captains representing 11 Hampshire Clubs.   
Many supporting letters were also received from other Past Captains.

The successful outcome of this meeting resulted in the Captains being formed and membership was offered to the Captains, Past and Present, of all Hampshire clubs affiliated to the Hampshire Golf Union.

A set of rules were also approved and the following became the first elected officers:

President: Mr. M. Pinker, Rowlands Castle
Captain: Mr. C. R. Jenkin, Brokenhurst Manor
Vice-Captain: Mr. L. G. Hunt, Brokenhurst Manor

The rest is history and the Association, as it is now called, has grown considerably and gone from strength to strength.
