Pottergate Pirates

Pottergate Pirates invite all club members to join our band of cut throats. The Pirates have friendly fixtures throughout the year. Playing one match each month.


A Word From Spud...


Although this is primarily a Pirates event this is an open competition where all members of the club can play. It involves a Texas scramble and the teams will be drawn on the day – all you need to do is put your name down. You can find the sheet in the main foyer to the right of the entrance to the bar.

The Pottergate Pirates - who we are

We are a friendly bunch of Pottergate members who support the idea that golf is for everyone. We don’t think that playing matches should be preserved for those elite few chosen to represent the club in the LUGC league, and so we invite all members of all sections of the club to join us to play in our friendly fixtures against other clubs.

Matches will usually include a meal and is a great opportunity to make new friends and play new courses against other clubs. Win or lose…we put on a brave face and the aim of the game is to play some golf and enjoy ourselves. It’s a great way to relax, to integrate with the club, to become involved, or even to just gain some experience if you have greater ambitions! One thing’s for sure, you’re bound to be welcomed with open arms and have a great day with the Pirates.

Don’t be shy, give us a try! All you need is a club handicap. If you’re interested in playing please contact Captain Spud Murphy. He can be reached by leaving a message through the club, or simply put your name up on the game sheets in the clubhouse. Please don’t be disheartened if you don’t get picked for a game. We try to make sure all players get to play but of course there are only so many spaces per match.
