Something for everyone

The men’s section has over 200 members. Competitions take place primarily on Sunday mornings, although some are held over three-day weekends. Monthly medals and stablefords are on Friday and Saturday. On average between 40-70 men enter the competitions, especially the popular Ben Volta Winter League which runs from November to March. All board competitions have Sunday a.m. shotgun starts which ensure all players can gather together immediately afterwards for Trophy Presentations.
The main events of the year include the 'Captains Drive-In' usually held in early spring, the 27-hole Guest Day in June and primarily the 'Captains Day' in mid-summer. The Club Captain will also host events in aid of his chosen charity throughout the year.
The men’s section currently runs five representative teams: Thornton Cup, Leslie F Wood (7.5+ handicap), Norman Plum (Categories 3&4 handicap), Essex Seniors (Over 55's) and Jubilee Cup (12-24 handicap).
The men also play friendlies against other Essex clubs with matches home and away. These are always competitive contests with the emphasis on friendship and can be closely contested events, sometimes with a trophy at stake.
