We have Individual, Partner, and Team Competitions with a variety of formats. Some are for specific handicap ranges (e.g. + to 20, 21 to 28, 29 to 50) and others for the full handicap range of + to 45. The competitions and their handicap ranges are listed below.

From 2021 most entries will be via online forms and payment. There will remain a few forms that will be via manual forms.

(36 holes for The Tegner and also tea and cake in the afternoon!) Please let us know of any special dietary requirement with your entry. A change of clothes after play is usually optional.

Juniors are very welcome to enter our Competitions and usually get a significant discount.

All are welcome to look in at the host club over the weekend of the County Championships to watch the best 16 players in the County battle it out on the Saturday morning, the quarter-finals in the afternoon, the Semi-Finals on the Sunday morning and The Final that afternoon which is followed by the Presentation.
