Richard Waterhouse has recently taken over the Captaincy of the Royal Malta Golf Club. Richard, a native of deepest Surrey, enjoyed a 23 year career in Her Majesty’s Royal Marine’s serving his Queen and country literally all over the world. Sport for Richard has been a part of his life from an early age, initially football, then hockey to a high standard (National Premier League in both England and Hong Kong, also represented the Royal Marines, Royal Navy & Captain of Combined Services). Richard’s foray into golf began in Bermuda at the Port Royal Golf Club, which boast a par 3 of 235 yards over the Atlantic Ocean ! Because of his extensive travel during service, it was not until after leaving the Royal Marines that Richard was able to dedicate a little more time to golf, becoming a member at very challenging Saunton Sands in North Devon and Wareham Golf Club in Dorset, before joining Royal Malta Golf Club in 2014. Prior to taking up office as Club Captain, Richard has served the RMGC as Competition Secretary for two years and Vice-captain for a similar stint.
Richard and his Committee are hard at work preparing a full golfing calendar for the summer and coming season and looks forward to meeting you all – either in the rough or by the bar !
