Our competitions include stroke play and match play options, some of which are played by members individually as part of a group and others are as part of a team, usually as a pair.

Most competitions are available to all Members, but some require you to be within a specific handicap range, age range or Membership Category.

There are a small number of competitions in which both male and female members can win, but most are exclusive to one or the other. Male and female Members can however usually play in a competition and win the prize money, even if they aren’t eligible to win the trophy.

If you have any questions about the details on this page or on the enclosed documents, please speak to the Competitions & Handicap Committee Chairperson.
