Tea, not tees, for visitors to Chorley GC

CHORLEY Golf Club members and visitors to the Lancashire club can now take a break in the middle of their rounds and enjoy a snack and a cuppa at the half-way house near the tenth tee.

The recently-opened ‘George Birtill Cabin’ perpetuates the memory of the former Chorley Guardian managing editor who was twice captain, president and honorary secretary for 27 years at the Hall o’th Hill club. George, who died in 2000, would have approved of the facility because he would often pop into the clubhouse for a quick bite after completing nine holes.

Appropriately, the cabin is sited next to his memorial bench, donated by his family and overlooking his favourite view of Anglezarke moors.

His eldest son David, a member of the club for more than 40 years, cuts the ribbon at the official opening ceremony watched by his golfing friends.

At the front, relaxing on George’s bench, are house chairman Ian Conroy, council chairman Dr Iain Hall, and club captain Barry Gee while caterer Sharon Harman, at the service hatch, prepares to pour the tea.
