John Booth - Our Captain for 2019 had only officiated at our opening game before he was diagnosed with a serious heart condition which will neccessitate him undergoing open-heart surgery. I hope that we will welcome him back later in the season. I will post updates here as I get them.

John Booth is awaiting a heart operation

July 8th update - After a long wait and many delays, at last John had his operation yesterday Sunday 7th July when he had a successful valve repair instead of the valve replacement which was the original plan. Today John is already sitting in a chair even though he is attached to many tubes. I'm sure we all wish him a speedy recovery but understand that it will take some time for him to make a full recovery and join us on the golf course again. Take it easy John and givr us a progress report occasionally..

Ruth Madoc - As everyone knows, our patron has been touring with the show Calendar Girls. Tragically Ruth fell on stage while warming up prior to the show in Dublin last week. Ruth has broken her right hip and femur in three places, she had an operation on Friday 1st February to pin the breaks. She is currently still in hospital in Dublin and is hoping to be transferred to Morriston hospital next Monday (11th February).

I'm sure we all wish Ruth a speedy recovery and in the meantime a well deserved rest while John looks after her

Update: Ruth is making good progress and hopes that she will be able to rejoin the Calendar Girld tour in September..

Ruth Madoc, who is back home after her hospitalisation in Dublin and Morriston.









Our good friend and patron Ruth Madoc has embarked on a long tour of Calendar Girls, The Musical . With music written by Gary Barlow. We will have to wait a while to see her in Cardiff but if you are in any of the other places or have friends in those areas then please spread the word. Please see the notice re Ruth on the left. I will post an update if I become aware of any changes in her circumstances.

Doberman - I was sent the photo below by one of our members who I shalln't name (KM)

"Hello, Doberman Cabs, can I help you? What do you mean Colin's marked my card?"

" I can do Cimla to Swansea Bay return for £30 but don’t keep on about my handicap"
