    The section is administered by a Committee and its primary purpose is to organise a variety of competitions for the benefit and enjoyment of its members:

    • 38 Qualifying competitions (including 8 Trophies and the Seniors Championship over 2 rounds)
    • 22 Inter-Club matches
    • 5 Knock Out competitions
    • An Eclectic competition

    The nominated day for Senior competitions is Wednesday.

    Membership is open to all male Club members aged 55 and over and costs a modest £5 per annum, payable for the section’s financial year, which starts on 1 November. This entitles the member to enter all the competitions and represent the club at inter-club matches.

    The Annual General Meeting is held annually in early December where the officers are appointed and 20+ trophies and cups, suitably engraved, are presented to the winners.

    Every weekday morning, there are various groups of senior golfers offering friendly roll-up golf (see other sections on the website for more details).

    There is a regular Senior Captain’s Newsletter, giving information on the results of section competitions, inter-club matches, notable achievements, and other news. This is emailed directly to all paid up section members.

  • Juniors

    The BGC Junior Section has really taken off over the past 3 years and has become a very active and involved part of the Club.

    We welcome junior golfers, both girls and boys, of all ages and abilities.  You do not need to have a handicap to get involved as we run sessions for both experienced players and those very new to the game – all you will need is to be under 18, have your own clubs and a desire to play and enjoy golf!

    Our Academy Course is a brilliant way to introduce yourself to the game and we run a regular Saturday afternoon group session.   Over the last couple of years we have seen a number of youngsters graduate from the 9 hole par 3 to being Main Course members with a full WGS Handicap.

    For those who join the Main Course we can support and help you to gain your WGS Handicap so you can participate in our regular Junior competitions every Saturday.  Our more experienced junior members are very often on hand to provide great support and advice to those new and improving players.
    If you are an established WGS Handicap holding member, you are welcome to enter our Saturday Junior Competition – we typically tee off around 1.15pm and will play between 9-18 holes depending on the light and weather.   We play a variety of different formats – singles, pairs and team competition; stableford, medal and match-play – all with the intention of helping you improve your game, further your enjoyment and meet new friends.
    Those Juniors with a handicap of under 18 are also eligible to enter the Club Competitions and we have seen a number of successes over the past couple of years.

    We also hold a Junior Captains Day, when parents and relatives are encouraged to join in, matches against both the Ladies & Senior Sections and our own Club Championships.

    Parents are always welcome to walk around and there is usually a good number in the bar afterwards to enjoy the usual hospitality before we hand out the prizes!
