Vets Section 2024

The aim of the Section is to provide senior golfers (aged 55+) with competitions and team matches throughout the season. We play matches against local clubs as well as individual and knockout competitions providing a full calendar between April to September.

Vets Captain 2024
This year’s Captain will be Alan Thompson

Team Matches
Teams of 12 players make up 6 No. four-ball matches and results in a friendly but competitive game of golf in a 4BBB format. This is followed by a drink and a meal with all players present and concludes with brief comments and summaries by the respective Captains - the protocol being that the home players buy the away players a round of drinks each.

All members are given a chance to play throughout the season with notifications by e-mail circulars from the Secretary and the Captain as well as via the Vets notice board - the current costs are £7 for home games and £15 for away games.

Vets Competitions
We have 7 regular competitions culminating with a “Player of the Year” award for the best 3 Rounds throughout the season. (See our honours board in the Vets Corner). There is also a season long knockout competition for singles and a one-off pairs competition. Competition fees are currently £4 (although some are free sponsored competitions with meals provided. An Away-Day is held each year at a different course around the region to play for the Captains Trophy.

There is an annual Membership of the section - currently costing £10 –payment to Competition Secretary (Mike Ford) ahead of entry to a first competition although subscriptions are mainly taken at the start of the season. Matches and competitions are all played mid-week and generally commence at 10.00am.
