For the Club members to whom these things matter - a moment of your time.
In 1915 George Lowe died after 24 years service as Professional to B&HPGC.
At a Committee meeting at 20.20 on 05 March 1915, it was reported that there were 36 applications for his vacant post.
At a meeting on 09 March at Mr Captain’s house at The Square, Buxton it was confirmed that Harold Cadwell was to be appointed the new professional, moving from his previous post in Southwell.
This decision was ratified at a Committee meeting on 12 March by Captain Herbert Shipton (Dr).
While still maintaining his position, Harold Cadwell (age 26) signed up, under the Colours of The Manchester Regiment.
He died of wounds inflicted at the Battle of the Somme on 29 August 1918.
Interred at St Cuthbert’s Churchyard, Southport, he may be just a distant memory to us now.
However, the British Legion has called upon us to remember those who fell in the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago.
The Professional Golfers’ Association wholeheartedly embraces this initiative.
As a mark of respect, the Poppy Flag will be flown at the “18th”.
All golfers will have the opportunity to pay their respects and contribute to the Poppy Appeal box located at the bar.
