The book will be of interest not only to current members but also for players who were members in days gone by, said author Norman Davis.

The book was made possible thanks to a generous award by the Sutton Bridge Power Station Community Fund which helped pay for production costs.

Other events being planned for next year are a flag-raising ceremony on February 18, the month in 1914 when the first golf club- forming meeting took place, a challenging par three competition in April and a commemorative dinner on May 3.

There will also be a centenary cup competition in July.

The ladies section have produced an embroidered mural which will be unveiled at the club’s AGM on November 11 as well as a commemorative garden on the ninth tee reminding members of the origins of the club in the aborted Wet Dock of 1881, work on which will commence shortly.
