Playing Golf

Welcome to Season 2024

Despite the poor weather, the Captain's Drive-In has taken place and our major competitions have started already. Please remember that for all majors across the club, players need to have played at least 4 qualifying competitions in the previous 12 months. Qualifying competitions will start as soon as the greens staff are able to present measured white, yellow and red courses. We are aiming to do this before the end of March. Don't forget that even if we are on preferred lies, qualifiers are still allowed provided balls in the rough are replaced on the exact spot after cleaning.

We have 13 different knockouts at the Club and have started to ask for entries. Contact your competition secretary if you need details.

There are a couple of national competitions that we have entered this year. The Daily Mail Foursomes is open to the foursomes KO winners from 2023. These were Carl Jenkins & Jamie McTigue and Sue Fox and Pauline Close. In the Race To Woodhall Spa the Club is represented by the best aggregate net scorers in 2023. These were Aaron Haddock and Natalie Lawson. Good luck to them.

Once we move into the season properly, we will reinvigorate our adopt-a-bunker scheme, whereby individuals tend to a bunker for a few minutes each time they pass it. It's a great opportunity for all members to easily contribute to the upkeep of the course. Please look out for an email in the near future.

At Vicars Cross Golf Club, we want everyone to have an enjoyable experience when they are playing golf or in the Club House. If you unhappy about the behaviour of any member please contact our General Manager, Phil Beard, or any member of the Golf Committees. Please also familiarise yourself with our Club rules which are in this year's diary, available from behind the bar.
