Veterans Section

The Veterans section is open to all members who are aged 55 or over and are interested in competing in friendly matches against a number of other Veterans teams from several prestigious Golf clubs within Beds, Bucks and Herts areas.
For the 2020 season we will playing against 14 other clubs, home and away, plus a Texas scramble against SBGC Ladies. 

The clubs are -

  • Aldwickbury Park
  • Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands
  • The Bedfordshire
  • Beds & County
  • The Buckingham
  • Chesfield Downs
  • Ellesborough
  • John O'Gaunt
  • Leighton Buzzard
  • Mid Herts
  • Redbourn
  • St Neots
  • Verulam
  • Whipsnade

Both Chesfield Downs and Ellesborough were new to our section for 2019 and proved to be as challenging as we expected. For 2020 we will now play St Neots GC and this will be a supurb addition to our match schedule.

Each club is played on a home and away basis with each team, normally sixteen per side, being selected by the Vets Captain. There are lots of opportunities to play and compete. Of course our aim is to win every match but, more importantly is the chance to socialise with friends, old and new, from South Beds and competing clubs. After each match both teams enjoy a two course meal and have to endure the "Captains Jokes" !!!

In addition there are also several other events which offer the prospect of making your mark and these are:

  • Peter Quince Trophy  
  • Veterans Knock Out (Club Match)
  • Veterans Invitation Day
  • John Hadfield Trophy (Club Match)
  • Veterans Captains Day

There is a ¬£10.00 subscription but having read this short outline of the benefits of joining our friendly group and having the chance to represent South Beds Veterans, it is hoped you will find it worthwhile. If you are interested or have any questions please contact -
