Member Competitions


Members with a handicap are able to take part in the frequent Medals and Competitions run by the club.
There is a small charge to enter a Medal and this covers the sweepstake and magic 2’s on the day. The winners in each handicap category can claim their prizes at the Pro Shop.


These usually take place on a Saturday from April until October but there are also mid week Medals, either on a Tuesday or a Wednesday.

The annual diary issued to members will show dates but the website Fixture Diary page shows more up to date details.
It is advisable to sign up for a Saturday Medal but for weekdays it is acceptable to turn up and play or book your tee time online.
Most Medals are played from the white tees but some are from the yellows.
One Medal each month is part of an annual Medal competition with the winners eligible for entry to the Medal Finals.


There are a number of individual competitions as well as three matchplay competitions open to members.

Matchplay Competitions
Campbell Douglas Trophy – singles matchplay
Penman Trophy – foursomes matchplay.
Gilfillan Oattes Trophy – four-ball matchplay

Entries to these three competitions close on 31st March and the draw is displayed on the club noticeboard.
Dates for the completion of each round of play are shown and the Finals Day is on a Sunday in late August.
