2001 saw the terrible crisis of foot and mouth disease that was sweeping the country. Public footpaths could not be walked on but we could continue to play golf. The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews invited Pannal to host the regional qualifying rounds for The Open Championship for a six year period starting from 2006. Centenary Celebrations took up the whole of this year and what a great and exciting year it was with so many events and the whole club joining in the celebrations.In 2012 the 8th Earl of Harewood became Club President following the death of his father, the 7th Earl, who had been President since 1946. The Club made some changes to its Articles and Bye-Laws in order to comply with the Equality Act. The major change was the election each year of two Captains of equal standing, namely the Men’s Captain and the Ladies Captain.
