We are an active and friendly section for the 60s and over who enjoy amiable competitive golf both between ourselves and with other like minded golfers from other, mainly local, clubs. New members may join simply by putting their names down for any of the events.

Matches with other clubs (home and away)

We have Better Ball matches home and away with 12 other clubs and notices are posted on the Veterans’ notice board approximately three weeks before a match asking for availability. Please enter your name if you would like to play. Selection is made about a week before the game. Players not selected will be given priority for the next game for which they are available. We try to ensure that members play with as many other members as possible over the season. We stay for a meal after each match. It is anticipated that members will be available for about an equal number of home and away matches. Members are encouraged to wear club shirts.  Other competitions
