Welcome from the Men’s Captain
I’m delighted to welcome you to Brampton Park Golf Club and on behalf of the Men’s Competitions, Handicaps and Fixtures Committee give you some insight into men’s competition golf.
The club was founded in 1991 and ever since has been regarded as a hotbed for competition golf for players of all ages and abilities – though there are still plenty of opportunities just to play golf socially with friends. I joined the Club in 1996 and have never regretted that decision: every round played with like-minded golfers on our challenging course is a delight and the hospitality afterwards in our well-appointed clubhouse is second to none.
The Men’s Committee runs a full programme of competitions throughout the year. Appealing to Flexible, 5 and 7 Day male members alike is a roll-up individual competition held every Wednesday under the various guises of Winter Bash, Midweek Medal and in the summer months the Wed W Stableford. At weekends there is a full programme of competitions – a few are classed as Majors and many as Boarded where a win will see your name on an Honours Board in the clubhouse in perpetuity and qualification for the prestigious season-ending Brampton Park Masters. Some of these Honours’ Board competitions and quite a few more are Members’ Competitions open to both men, women and juniors. Please enter as many of them as you can.
Together, the Ladies’ Captain and I, with a great deal of help behind the scenes, will be hosting a Charity Day on Friday 16th July 2021 for the benefit of our chosen charity, the Sue Ryder St John’s Hospice at Moggerhanger situated between Sandy and Bedford: I hope you will give your full support to that venture and to any other fund raising activities during our year in office, like raffles and sweepstakes.
Please feel free to contact me or any member of the Men’s Competitions, Handicaps and Fixtures Committee if you have any questions about men’s competition golf. Our contact details and much more information besides may be found in folders on the ClubV1 Members Hub (website or app): you will need to register or login, then click on Club then Documents or in the app tap on Club then Docs to open and read them. In particular please have a look at the comprehensive overview of the club’s competition golf programme detailed in the Competitions Manual: it’s a ‘how to bible’ and a must read if you’re serious about playing competition golf at Brampton Park.
I very much hope that you thoroughly enjoy playing social and/or men’s competition golf at Brampton Park throughout 2021.
