Dear Fellow Golfers,Welcome to the Royal Malta Golf Club, where the rich tapestry of history meets the vibrant spirit of friendship on the green. It is with great pleasure that we extend our warmest greetings to you, as we embark on another exciting season of golf.Our club, founded in 1888 and graced with Royal status, is a true gem among golf clubs worldwide, proudly being one of only Sixty-Six Royal Clubs. Over the years, we’ve evolved, expanded, and honed our commitment to the sport we love. From our humble beginnings in Valletta to our current location and 18-hole course, we’ve nurtured a tradition that now spans 135 years.

At RMGC, we believe that golf is more than just a game. It embodies values that are dear to us – honesty, integrity, sportsmanship, and respect for both the game and one another. These values form the very essence of our club, creating an atmosphere where camaraderie thrives.I have the distinct honor of serving as the youngest known Captain of this prestigious club, a responsibility I wholeheartedly embrace. Alongside my dedicated committee, I am committed to upholding the rich traditions of the past Captains while infusing a fresh perspective. Together, we will ensure that the core ethos of the club remains at the heart of everything we do.As for our facilities, we offer an 18-hole golf course that challenges and delights, a driving range to hone your skills, two putting and chipping areas for fine-tuning your game, modern buggies and rental equipment for your convenience, as well as meeting rooms for gatherings and events. And let’s not forget our magnificent bar and restaurant, the Putters Inn. Here, you can unwind with a beer during the summer months on our rooftop terrace, or savor a lovely glass of local wine or a cup of tea by the wood-burning fireplace during the winter months.Our golf course, nestled on the picturesque island of Malta, offers a test of skill unlike any other. Its relatively short and narrow design demands precision and patience, promising both challenge and beauty with every swing.Beyond the greens, Malta itself is a paradise waiting to be explored. Whether you’re escaping the winter chill or simply seeking a unique golfing experience, our island has it all. From delectable cuisine and breathtaking vistas to a wealth of heritage and a warm, welcoming culture, Malta promises a memorable stay both on and off the course.During your time at RMGC, I pledge to be not only a Captain to our cherished members but also a host to our friends and visitors. Our mission is to ensure that your experience here is nothing short of exceptional, making your stay a cherished memory.As we embark on this exciting journey together, I want to express my gratitude for being a part of our golfing community. With each swing and every moment shared, we celebrate the true essence of golf – friendship, camaraderie, and the joy of the game.Here’s to another season filled with memorable rounds, new friendships, and unforgettable moments at the Royal Malta Golf Club. We look forward to teeing off with you and creating lasting memories on the course and beyond.Yours in golf and friendship,JJ MicallefCaptain, Royal Malta Golf Club
