Rule(s) to Remember 

Water hazards are now called penalty areas. General play areas, putting greens and teeing area complete the course.

In penalty areas you can move loose impediments, ground your club and take practice swings without penalty. However, if  the ball moves, that's an automatic one shot PENALTY.


Download the free R&A app from the Apple app store or the Andriod Play Store!


Captains Message 

Happy New Year to all our senior members. Wishing you good health and every success in all your endeavours on and off the golf course(s).

“Golf is a game of misses. The guy who misses the best is going to win”

Seniors Thursday Quiz

Due to the inclement weather on Thursday, Seniors Captain Bill arranged for Senior member Andrew Ellfick to hold a QUIZ.

Initially, twenty-one seniors tuned up for the event. Len as expected turned up during the first round bringing the total up to twenty-two seniors.

The 5 teams were ‘Captain’s Table’, ‘Happy Honchose’, ‘Rod’s Boys’, ‘3 Off The Tee’, and ‘The Sweepers’.

Six rounds were held with ten questions per round, with a joker that could be played at the start of the round which doubled the points in that round.


At the half way point, only the Captain’s Table had played the joker with the result that they were in the lead with 24 points. In second place was the Sweepers with 18.5 points.

The final winners were the Sweepers with a total of 46.5 points. They were presented with a bottle of Port by ex-Lady Captain Sandra Ford. The team donated the prize to the Christmas Raffle table.


The Sweepers ( Chris Sutton, Robin Ewbank, Mike Richards and Dave Butcher)          46.5 points

Captain’s Table (Bill Bond, Julian Stapleton, Douglas Hamilton, Martin Hawkins and Malcolm Dennes)   44 points

Happy Honchose (Chris Hockey, Rob Ford, Larry Jeran-Croft, Alistair Mullineux and Len Collin)     43 points
