2017 CAPTAIN CHRIS KIRBY DRIVES IN



A great turn out for a member that has done an enormous amount for our Club over the years.
We wish him a great year and may Lynne & he have many happy memories of it.

Chris & Lynne Kirby 2017





Chris and Lynne enjoyed a great day and thanked everyone for their support, especially his Son, Sam who had travelled across from Norway to be with the whole Family. Great support & great family.

Chris announced his Charity for the year was to be The Brain Research Trust and the raffle got him off to a good start. Past Captain Colin Wyatt won the 'Guess the distance to the pin' of the Captain's Drive In and promptly donated the money to Chris's fund, very generous and thank you .


Dave & Sue Burgess say THANK YOU Southend Golf Club




£3,012 raised for the Anthony Nolan Trust, another great year for our little club and it's tremendous reputation for supporting good causes.

Dave and Sue have been amazed at the support shown throughout the year and have enjoyed the experience. I think we as a Club owe them a lot for their energy and enthusiasm and now Dave, you can get back to just enjoying your golf.

Gordon Woodroof , Past Captain, funeral arrangements.

23rd May Southend Crematorium 4.00pm    West Chapel


It is with a 'sad heart' that I have to inform members of the death of an old friend, Gordon Woodroof.

He was Captain of the club in the early 70's and again nearly 20 years later. A very loyal servant to the club who sat on the committee and arranged many social events including the then Annual Dinner Dance at the Cumberland Suite in Westcliff.

A very competitive golfer who's name appears many times on the Honours Boards. He was part of the winning Kindred Club Shield side when we first won it in the 60's. He also represented the club in the Thornton Cup in the 'good old days' when we could field a team of 10 players under the handicap of 5.

I was lucky enough to caddie for Gordon on many occasions from 1966 to 1972 and always found him to be generous and a true 'Gentleman', he will be sadly missed.

The Captain & Committee ask you all to make the effort to attend the service and give him the send off and respect that he clearly deserves.

Dress code SGC Club Tie or simply SGC logo shirt/jumper.    Thank you.
