The Gents section at Aldwickbury is blessed with both a thriving membership and a busy competitions and social calendar. We are incredibly lucky that our membership comprises golfers of all ages and abilities. Whether your golfing ambition consists of social games with friends, friendly matches with other members or playing organised, handicap qualifying competitions, you’ll be pleased to know there are plenty of options for all.
For new members without handicaps or needing to refresh them, we provide a buddy service to mark score cards. Also, there are a number of ‘swindles’ that operate including groups on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. The names of the organisers can be given to anyone seeking to take part.
Most swindles usually offer some friendly competition with a small entry fee providing funds to be distributed to the winners, runners up and nearest the pins for example. One thing is certain, all offer the chance for a drink of your choice afterwards and if you are lucky enough to win, light hearted queries about your handicap (which may well be reduced next time you play!).
On the more formal side of competitions, we are fortunate to have a dedicated competitions team on the Gents Committee who organise a multitude of competitions throughout the year. These include the ever popular Summer and Winter League events run over a number of weekends, Monthly and Weekly Stableford and Medal (strokeplay) competitions, mixed and team events and of course, Honours Board ‘Major’ competitions too.
We also have a full scratch team and enter teams into the Chiltern Breakfast League and the Hertfordshire Foxes Leagues.
Finally, there are a number of mixed competitions throughout the year, and Gents over 55 can also play in our Seniors (Aldwicks) competitions.
One thing is for sure, joining as a Gent at Aldwickbury will never leave you short of an opportunity for a game.
Please have a look at the membership section on our website for more information or feel free to pop in and see us. We’re sure you’ll agree with all of our Gents that we provide one of the most welcoming and enjoyable places to play your golf in Hertfordshire.
For information about any of the swindles and / or competitions mentioned above, please speak to Robin in the Pro Shop or email our Gents captain Graham Payne for details.
We look forward to welcoming you at the club.
