The Veterans Section is open to all members aged 55 and over and operates a variety of events throughout the year. This is a thriving section priding itself on its friendly atmosphere and provides an true variety of competitions and events to suit all golfing tastes and abilities.
Clyne Veterans Society offers so much – and all for just £10 per year.
Through your Vets Membership, you can:
- Represent Clyne in team matches against Vets teams from other clubs. This is an excellent way to visit other courses with colleagues. It’s a way to meet Vets from other clubs and to play their courses, if selected for an away match.
- The selection policy is rotational, so everybody who makes themselves available for a match should have approximately the same success rate for selection.
- It’s free to play; the only cost is £10 per person for your post-match meal
- Play in Vets Competitions – these are announced on the notice board and are quite frequent during the season. There’s a range of different formats, and some allow you to introduce a guest for free
- Join in on Vets Away-Days – Great value days out, usually with transport if you need it
- Great social events throughout the year

Golf within the Veterans Society includes singles, pairs and team competitions, inter club matches home and away, Away and Open Days as well as three dinners including the AGM in March. This year, being the section’s 40th anniversary year, will also feature a special anniversary competition and dinner.
Inter club matches against 9 local clubs are played as 4 BBBs on a friendly basis with the emphasis being on giving everyone who applies to play an equal opportunity with low and higher handicappers paired together where possible. The events conclude with a meal and provide an excellent opportunity to play other courses at a fraction of the normal cost followed by a convivial social occasion.
Inter Club match availability sheets are posted on the Veterans Section Notice Board where team selections are also posted.. Entries into Singles competition normally played in threes at £1 per head are simply made by collecting your card from the pro shop where Jonathan will happily arrange partners for anyone not already ‘fixed up’.
