Westerhall Rums join the party as Summer Sailing Sponsor

Adding some Caribbean flavour and fun to the Royal Southern’s Summer Sailing season is its new sponsor Westerhall Rums,  the award-winning Grenadian spirit that is now the Club’s official rum partner. 
With the Club’s important role as part of the Cowes Combined Clubs that run the racing at Lendy Cowes Week, this partnership is ideally timed as Westerhall is also the official Rum of Lendy Cowes Week.

Chilworth Golf Club is situated on the outskirts of Southampton amongst rolling farmland and forestry.
In 1994 the back nine was opened for play, and although slightly shorter than the front nine which was built in 1998, many golfers find it equally as challenging.

It also has a well stocked Pro Shop, so ladies allow some extra time for shopping.
