Advance Notice - Men's South-East Foursomes - July 4th 2019
The Men's South-East Region Foursomes, between Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk & Norfolk will be taking place at Bedfordshire Golf Club on Thursday 4th July. Whilst this is a great opportunity to showcase our course and club at a regional level, we want to make Members aware early to avoid any inconvenience on the day, as there will be some tee reservations for the event.
On the 4th July there will be a one tee start off the 1st from 8.00am until 9.50am, but the 10th tee will remain open to allow members to play their normal Thursday morning golf largely uninterrupted. In the afternoon, the 1st tee will be closed from 12.45 until 2.35, meaning that members can use the 10th tee to start their game.
Please ensure that these tee closures are respected and that you do not tee off the 1st during these times. Thank you in advance.

England Golf South-East Region Seniors League Final at Bedfordshire Golf Club - Hampshire Win Again - Oct 18
On Thursday 19th October we were delighted to host the England Golf South East Region Seniors League Final between Hampshire and Hertfordshire.
There were 10 members of each team in this 'singles' match and the final score was Hampshire 6 Hertfordshire 4
Hampshire won last year so they successfully retained their title.
As the club hosting this event, we received many complimentary comments including:
Both Captains commenting on the impressive quality of the course and particularly the greens (fast and true) and the fairways (consistently and uniformly high quality).
Despite rain and mist on the day, both Captains were happy that we had not implemented 'winter rules' and agreed that the lies were all excellent
Virtually every player we spoke to said that their home course is playing winter rules and they were amazed at how good our course is in October!
The President of Hertfordshire Golf took pictures of the 6th Green with no players on it and when asked why, he said that he was going to send them to the Course Manager at his own club as an example of how neat and tidy green edges should look!
A number of players and officials commented on the warm and friendly welcome they had received (during both the practice and competition rounds) from both staff and members.
The President of Bedfordshire Golf and his senior officers were all extremely impressed by the quality of the course, facilities generally and the hospitality extended and commented specifically about the very impressive way in which we hosted this event which they felt reflected very well on the county generally.
All in all - well done to the greens team and all those who helped or supported the event from Bedfordshire Golf Club. We should feel very proud of just how impressed everyone was about our club.
The photos show the winning team (Hampshire) and the whole group enjoying the hospitality in the lounge afterwards.
