Men's Welcome

Welcome to the Men's Section of the website.

Club Captain for 2024 is Pierre-Alain Weir

Pierre-Alain was born in Bedford. As his father was in the army he spent  time living in Germany as well as England and whilst living in Liverpool attended the Blue Coat School as a boarder.

Pierre Alain has always enjoyed and excelled at sport and having left college, he returned to Germany where he played semi professional football for Duisberg whilst also working in the NAAFI there.

He later returned to London where he was employed by British Telecom and also met his future wife Ruth. Pierre-Alain specialised in IT as a payroll system specialist. He lived in Weston Super Mare for some time and later moved to Ashbourne with his wife and three daughters.

Pierre-Alain first played golf in Germany with his father and later at Weston Super Mare G.C. joining Ashbourne when he moved to the town 20 years ago. He plays regularly with the "Tea Drinkers' group.

Pierre-Alain proved to be a very supportive Vice Captain and has done a great job chairing the social committee which organised a number of very enjoyable and successful social events over 2023. He hopes that the social side of the club will continue to develop over 2024.

Pierre - Alain is still working full time and has a handicap index of 6.7.
