    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    If at my club they said we had to address the captain as Mr Captain I'd assume it was a new member wind-up or something. Like when you tell the apprentice to get some tartan paint. We call our captain Paul - because his name's Paul.

    If, after arriving at the Club on Saturday morning for the Comp, I see the Captain/President/Lady Captain, it`s always, "Good morning, Captain/President/Lady Captain".
    Manners and a bit of respect cost nothing.

    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    I once got told off at my last club for saying "morning" to the lady president. I was told to say "good morning lady president". To be honest I avoided her after that so I didn't have to say anything to her. It wasn't her that told me off and I was never fully sure wether it was meant to be serious or not.

    Bit off topic but is Lady Captain really a title in clubs? That seems a bit weird

    Even as a PC skeptic 'Morning Captain' would seem more natural & appropriate than 'Morning Lady Captain'


    Edit: Ditto for Morning Lady President

    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    Captain does get a bit of respect, but not enforced. Mr Captain is definitely something I have said recently....and like SILH, Mr Captain Sir. My own choosing to say it. Sometimes I will just call him by first name too.

    President, however...Commander in Chief! She laughs with it, so it's all good!

    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    At Cuddington yesterday,we had finished playing and were in the bar. In walks a lady.

    BIM pipes up "Good Afternoon Madam Lady Captain" in a very friendly respectful way, tinged with a tad of happy banter.

    Certainly no enforcement, but golf is about respect, so I don't have a problem with it

    Biggest problem is knowing who your captains are

    Our Ladies section has a Lady Captain, our President this year is a woman and has asked to be called 'Madam President'.

    Re: "Hello Mr Captain"

    There is only one Captain of the club male or female.
    The other one is the men's captain or the ladies captain
    We address ours a Mr Captain as he is a man.
    We call the ladies captain Margaret as she is only Captain for the ladies.
    We have never had a woman captain so I assume it would be Madam Captain and call the men's Captain By his name!
