The 100th Anniversary of the Beverley and East Riding Golf Club took place in 1989. Many special events were organised and a special book was commissioned and published. It was written by Mr J M G Ward, a member of the club and Chairman of the Centenary Committee. The book is no longer in print although copies can sometimes be obtained from second-hand booksellers. The book contains fascinating history of the club and its members, and of the development of the club and the course and its facilities. Its contents may be viewed digitally from this link – BERGC Centenary Book. A reasonably high-speed internet connection is recommended.
Over its 125 plus years of existence, the golf club has had members who have a significant place in local and sometimes national history. Follow this link to find them Club characters.
