Barry Lane

The club was saddened to hear of the death of Barry Lane on Saturday 31st December 2022. Barry was a distinguished former member of the club having spent his formative years in the area during the 1970’s and he remained an honorary member of the club.

As a professional Barry represented Europe in the 1993 Ryder cup at the Belfry and won 5 European tour events between 1988 and 2004, as well as 8 events whilst on the senior tour.

One of the most popular figures in the professional game, he made nearly 700 starts on the European tour putting him 4th on the tour’s all-time appearance list.

When the club moved from the Heath in the 2004/5 season Barry played in the first match on the current course.

We extend our deepest sympathy to his family at this time

New Caterer

Following the notice given by our current caterer, Richard Johns of Season One catering, the club have been engaged in recruiting a new caterer and after a thorough and diligent process we are delighted to announce the appointment of Adrian Capello of Chef Roots and the CRCS Group. Adrian will start at Royal Ascot Golf Club on the 27th December. Below is an introduciton to Adrian and his thoughts on taking up the position at Royal Ascot Golf Club.


After cutting my teeth helping my Uncle run the Catering Operations at Royal Ascot Golf Club many years ago I feel like this opportunity is a return home.

Cooking runs deep in my family and I am blessed to spend my days cooking delicious food that not only fuels and nourishes the body but also feeds the soul

Chef Roots has been a long time in the making, having drawn on my experiences honing my craft working in Rosette kitchens to Corporate Banqueting to running my own business I have learnt and developed on the journey.

Since 2019 Chef Roots have catered for many different Clients ranging from Meal Prep Solutions for Athletes looking to bulk / cut whilst not compromising on flavour, to Smash Burgers for events from our Food Truck the “Patti Wagon” to fine dining in Clients homes to cooking for Royalty namely the pleasure of cooking for HRH Queen Elizabeth on three occasions.

My ethos is always the same across the board in my approach, it has to be delicious, it has to be good and it needs to make everyone happy!

With a focus on seasonality, locality, food trends and ultimately what the diner wishes to eat I keep a sharp eye on food trends, cooking techniques and flavour combinations.

It is my belief that food feeds the body as well as the soul and this is rooted in my kitchen and my food.

I am delighted to be invited to take on the tenure at Royal Ascot Golf Club and look forward to meeting and cooking for you all.

Kind regards,

Chef Adrian Cappello
