    Over the last few years some companies have been advertising guided rounds to which there has been growing disquiet and opposition from the vast majority of members of the Club. The Club has existed since 1971: learning the round, helping on attempts and then doing your own Round takes effort, which is what gives membership of the Club value and makes the Club unique. It is the wishes of the Club’s members that this ethos and tradition continue.

    As of 1st January 2020, the Bob Graham Club will no longer ratify paid/guided rounds and those who choose to use professional services of companies offering guided rounds will no longer be eligible to join the Bob Graham Club.
    Great news

    any updated stats after the summer? A few strava/facebook pages I've breifly seen making me think there might have been quite a bit of an uptake this year - or people have a larger and wider network of friends than I imagined!

    There were five paid for Rounds this year with two non-completions. A total of 120 successful Rounds, including those five, out of 214 registered attempts.
