This is our first Rhyl golfing picture. It was provided by Peter Trehearn and shows his grandfather P.T. Trehearn taking a swipe in a manner rather like a new club captain would tee off, but records show that he never held the position of captain.

Chances are that the photo dates from 1947-48 when Peter’s ‘other’ grandfather, C.W. ‘Bernard’ Bestwick was captain. P.T. may have been covering for C.W.’s absence at a special event, which might have been a match in tribute to Dai Rees.

Dai Rees (David James Rees, CBE) from South Wales was one of Britain’s leading tournament golfers in the 1930s and ‘40s.
