    There are captains for each section but if you are nominated for Club Captain you do both men's / club or Ladies/ club .

    And yes - always - someone with the inclination and time to invest. But they still have to be asked and then nominated for approval by the members. That you might be a not very good golfer is completely irrelevant to the role of Captain. In representing the club - the captains are simply expected to embody (as far as possible) and uphold the traditions and ethos of the club.
    I certainly agree they fulfill a valuable role for what is often a thankless task.

    That said in most sports the Captain leads the playing team and thus the respect of the players and members. In golf clubs its more of a clerical and ambassador role which, in my book, isn't something that shouldn't require/expect anyone to use formal titles.
