  • Vets Section 2019

    bigpicVets Section
    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 between April to October.

    Team Matches
    We play formal matches against local clubs currently including – Birtley, Durham City, Heworth, Prudhoe, Ravensworth, Seaham, Southmoor, South Shields, Wearside and Whitburn. Teams of 10 / 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 culminating with a “Player of the Year” award for the best performance 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 as well as the occasional Away-Day competition.
    Entry fees are nominal and in some cases free where sponsored
    Our first competition of the season for “Meet the Captain Day” will be played on the Tuesday the 5th April which will include a 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 free entry to the end of season competition.
