When Sam Ryder, founder of the Ryder Cup, was Captain of Verulam, he had no idea of the impact that his trophy would have on the world of golf.

The first official Ryder Cup was played in the USA in 1927 and Sam Ryder’s famous gold trophy made its first appearance at Verulam Golf Club when he entertained the Great Britain team before they left for the 1927 match. Sam gave us “the World’s best known team sporting challenge” and today’s Professionals owe a great deal to Sam’s legacy.

On Monday 3rd July 2017 the Worshipful Company of Marketors invites you to join us, as individuals or in teams, for a great day of Golf and Fellowship at Verulam GC in St. Albans City. Close to the M25 and the M1, it is a great location.

Our day includes coffee and bacon rolls on arrival, 18 Holes of Golf and a Putting Competition. There will also be some surprises on the day! A £10 entry fee to the Chipping Competition is donated in full to the Lord Mayor’s charities. This excellent day is rounded off by a 4-course dinner including wine, followed by prize giving. Great value for £90.

Come and enjoy yourselves! As in previous years, we will do our best to make everyone feel special throughout the day.

Entries will be limited to 24 teams of four and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Individual entries will be formed into “Harlequin Teams” of four.

The Verulam course was designed by the great James Braid and opened in 1905. It offers a good golf challenge without making it impossible for the higher handicap player.

We recommend you book early, especially if you want a particular tee time.

Past Master Michael Harrison will be delighted to welcome you personally on the day.

Price £90.00pp includes coffee & bacon rolls on arrival, 18 holes golf and putting competition, gift pack and a 4-course dinner with wines & coffee followed by prize giving. (Non-golfers attending dinner only: £30.00).
