Message from the Captain
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the Royal Malta Golf Club (RMGC).
On behalf of the Board of Management I would like to invite you to visit our club, one of the 66 golf clubs worldwide that carry the prestigious “Royal” title. They include some of the most historic, traditional and finest courses around the world.
It is a privilege and honour for me to Captain the RMGC, particularly because I am perpetuating my father’s legacy as he was club Captain 30 years ago.
Established in 1888, the RMGC made giant strides over the years, continually upgrading the course and clubhouse. These developments put substantial pressure on our finances, groundstaff and members but we rose to every challenge. Our efforts have not gone unrewarded: The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews recently informed the Malta Golf Association that the Malta Junior Open was to be listed in the 2018 World Amateur Golf Ranking. This represents a vote of confidence in the quality of our Golf Club and is a truly great achievement of which we are very proud.
The Putters Inn has a fully-fledged bar, the restaurant offers an exquisite and varied menu, and the golf shop is well stocked to ensure that it can meet the golfing requirements of all our visitors and members.
My personal wish is that you will choose to include a round of golf during your stay and hope that our celebrated Maltese hospitality will make your visit truly unforgettable.
Enjoy your golf at the Royal Malta Golf Club.
Vincent J. Portelli
