*Halletts Golf Society *
The Halletts golf society was established in 1946 at the end of the Second World War. Mr Arthur Hallett, a member of Wenvoe Castle Golf Club, was the main instigator of the society. He saw a way to meet fellow golfers of comparable handicaps, hold a social evening and fit in a game of golf at the same time. The spirit of the game is always friendly, even though there is an element of competition as well. There are 42 clubs who are members of the Halletts Cup Golf Society mostly based in the old counties of Mid-Glamorgan, South Glamorgan and Gwent although there is one member club in Powys and one in Gloucestershire.
Each year the 42 clubs are drawn into six leagues of seven clubs with every team in each league playing each other home and away. The six league winners then qualify for the play-off for a place in the final which is generally held at Wenvoe Castle. There is also a knock-out competition with the final at Wenvoe Castle.
The Aims
To familiarise new golfers with the Rules of the game, particularly those relating to etiquette.
To show by example that, in golf, standards of conduct are still considered important.
To teach players how to be competitive but still retain sportmanship and good social relationships.
To enable people to play a variety of courses, with the accent on inter club relationships.
To help new golfers pass through the society and on to teams playing off lower handicaps.
League Open Days
The winner of the league competition hosts an Open Day for all 42 teams in the following year, usually in late July/early August. We enter a team of 4 which normally consists of the Hallett Captain and three others to be selected by a method of the Captains choosing.
There are also Hallett open days run by other clubs. For such events, each club enters a team of 4 although more teams may be permitted subject to availability (there is usually plenty of room for extra teams). Participation is on a first come first served basis and the entry fee is normally about £50 per team. Please check the Jackdaws notice board for details.

Wayfarers
Something for the lower handicap players

The Wayfarers is a mens’ society formed for players of handicaps 9.5 to 17.4 and is a means of playing in a league against other clubs in a match-play format. There is a small annual fee of £10 to be a Wayfarer member.

Each year all clubs wishing to play within the Society are drawn at random into groups of 6-7. All teams within a group play against one another on a home & away basis in ‘Greensome Foursomes’ matches (through May – September).

We are always looking for new ‘blood’ within this society, so if your handicap is as above, can give up some time & would like the opportunity to play then do not hesitate in putting your name forward (details of matches will be posted on the Wayfarers board in the club house, on the web-site and in the fixtures book ).

As a club society during the spring/summer months we meet on a Wednesday evening where the tee is booked from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm. This is a Stableford competition where Prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and a golf ball and bottle prize raffle are awarded in the club house after play. The entrance fee is £4.00 and as usual, all are welcome. We also play for the Wayfarer of the Year trophy (this is only for those with 9.5-17.4 handicap) and have an end of year away-day.

If you need any other information regarding the Wayfarers society please do not hesitate in contacting Paul Maplestone (Captain), Ian Eidman (Treasurer) or Colin Smith (Secretary).
