The most famous golfing member of our club is Jamie Donaldson who, having won the Welsh Amateur Championship in 1997, crowned his amateur career by helping GB & Ireland take second place in the Eisenhower Trophy.
Jamie, who plays on the European & PGA Tours won his first major trophy in 2012 winning The Irish Open. He followed this up with his 2nd win in January 2013 when he won the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship.
Jamie had another excellent year in 2014. He played in all the major events and he had a 'Hole in One' at The Masters in April.
Jamie has had another fantastic season in 2015 winning the Czech Open.
His excellent form saw him qualify for a place in the European Ryder Cup Team and he didn't let anybody down with some great performances which brought the shot of the tournament to retain the Ryder Cup for
Europe... Well done Jamie.
