Local golf legend Andy Griffiths retires after 50 years at Llanymynech Golf Club

Llanymynech Golf Club have this week said a sad goodbye to their club Professional Andy
Griffiths as he retires from half a century in the role. Andy has been a hugely important part of the
club, sharing his great expertise with members and visitors alike through lessons, friendly advice
and his running of the Pro Shop.
Andy has actually been a part of the club for over 60 years since he began playing there at just 4
years old. He spent his junior years playing alongside close friend and fellow club alumnus Ian
Woosnam before going on to have his own distinguished playing career. Andy is a twice Welsh
PGA Champion and has also won the Midland and Shropshire Opens. He has represented Wales
three times in the International European Championships and played twice in The British Open.
Everyone at Llanymynech Golf Club wishes Andy a very happy retirement with many heart-felt
messages being shared on social media. Andy will remain an important member of the club but
can now enjoy the spectacular course purely for pleasure.
Andy will be succeeded in his role as Club Professional by Tom Farquharson, who has been
Assistant Pro since 2015. The club would like to extend Tom their best wishes and good luck in
his new position.
