Sadly, Gordon Campbell's team succumbed in the final (which we last reached 10 years ago!) to a very strong Shifnal squad. Many thanks to Gordon for being such an inspirational organiser and we wish his successor, John Gallagher, every success in the 2019-20 campaign.

2019 SENIORS’ CAPTAIN - David Brierley

After a brief affair with membership of HPGC in the mid eighties, work commitments forced David to put golf on hold until his retirement in 2013.

A lawyer by background, David spent his last 15 years as Chief Executive of the West Mercia Police Authority. David has lived in Weston for over 35 years, his first neighbour being one Sandy Lyle. David admits that sadly nothing of Sandy's golfing prowess rubbed off but the Hawkstone welcome remains as strong as ever.

David commented “Hawkstone is a quite sublime place to play golf with both courses offering breathtaking views ,stunning scenery and sufficient challenges to satisfy the most demanding golfers. However the friendliness and comradeship of the Seniors Section has been the most outstanding feature of my experience of Hawkstone as a Club and needless to say I was delighted to accept the honour of Captaincy of the Seniors in 2019.”
