    I could get my head round addressing someone as Madam Captain/President if I had to, its just Lady Captain/President that stumps me

    Its not actually a title other than Lord/Lady, which isn't relevant in this scenario

    Indeed - but for me being a member of a golf club is more than just having somewhere to play golf.

    Hopefully in the style of someone from Allo Allo. perhaps the Italian officer . A click of the heels would be a nice touch as well.

    We have never had a woman captain so I assume it would be Madam Captain and call the men's Captain By his name!
    So you have 3 captains?

    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    We also have 3, Mens, Ladies, Seniors (mens)

    I don't know if any one captain has seniority, never thought about that before. I assume not, all are equal as far as I am aware.
