DORSET GOLF CLUB INCORPORATED
……..is a mixed Club. Professional W. J. “Bill” Britten originally formed the club when Austgolf took on the running of the new course in 1984.
The Lady members separated subsequently and formed a mid-week ladies club, also under the Austgolf umbrella.
The Men’s club continued until 1999 when a new structure was drawn up under a steering committee chaired by Graham Morris, and so the Dorset Golf Club Incorporated was formalized.
A committee was nominated and elected in November of that year.
The club does not discriminate on the basis of gender, physical handicap, race or creed. All members have equal rights.
The Board of Management consists of seven (7) members, the club President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Men’s Captain, Ladies Captain and Ladies President, all of whom must have been formally elected.
The Men’s committee and the Ladies committee run the golfing affairs of the male and female members of the club. The members of these committees are elected by the male and female club members respectively.
