Barrie McCoy is the Captain of the Saval Golfing Society for 2012


At the recent AGM of the Saval Golfing Society, held in the Saval GAC club, Barrie McCoy was announced as the new Captain for 2012, in fact, he will be the 25th Captain of the Society.

This year is the 25th Year of the Society’s existence, and we still have some of the original members involved. Who would have thought it would have lasted this long way back at the first meeting in the Cove Bar in 1987.

To mark the 25th Anniversary, it was decided to reduce the membership for this year only to £25.00 and have an open invitation for all ex members to join for this year or if that does not suit, it will be open for all those ex members to attend the 12th July outing as a celebration of the 25 years.

The 25th AGM was poorly attended but as usual there was enough there to have very constructed debates on the various points raised, the following election of officers were made.

10.   The Secretary and the Treasurer have stayed on for another year in the agreement that there would be a successor in place, his was agreed at the meeting with Barrie McCoy taking on the secretary’s role and Gary Sands taking the treasurer’s role in 2013.
