Vets Section 2020

Vets Section 2020

The aim of the Section is to provide senior golfers (aged 55+) with competitions and team matches throughout the season. We currently play 20 matches, 7 competitions, 2 knockout competitions and the occasional away-day providing a full calendar between April to October.

Vets Captain 2020
This year’s Captain will be Gordon Sommerville

Team Matches
We play formal matches against 10 local clubs – Birtley, Durham City, Heworth, Ravensworth, Seaham, South Moor, South Shields, Washington, Wearside and Whitburn. Teams of 12 players make up four-ball matches and results in a competitive but friendly game of golf followed by a drink and a meal - 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 notification by circulars from the Captain as well as on the notice board with costs of £5 for home games and £10 for away games.
The clubhouse dress code is smart / casual with members encouraged to change out of playing clothes

Internal Competitions
We have 7 regular competitions throughout the season culminating with a “Player of the Year” award for the best record. (See our honours board in the Vets Corner). There is also a season long knockout competition for singles and a one-off pairs competition.
Entry fees are nominal with our first competition of the season for “Meet the Captain Day” which is played in early April and will include a free buffet meal and presentation of prizes with the winner receiving the Lipscombe Trophy – see the Notice Board for details
There is an annual Membership of the section - currently costing £6 – which includes subsidised events and meals at some competition.
