Vets Section 2022

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 2022

This year’s Captain is Gordon Aitken


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 Vets 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 boards in the Vets Corner). There is also a season long knockout competition for singles and a
one-off pairs competition.


Entry fees are currently £4 (and occasionally free) with our
first competition of the season for “Meet the Captain Day” which is played in early April with the winner receiving the Lipscombe Trophy – see the Notice Board for details

There is an annual Membership of the section - currently costing £10 – which includes subsidised events and meals at some competition.
