Our main day to meet and play with other women is Sunday, allowing all our working women members full access to the competitive golfing season. Further competitions are played on Wednesdays and there are a number of mixed competitions through the year, which are very well supported. We run friendly ‘roll-up’ events during the winter on Sundays and Wednesdays and there is a mixed society on Saturday mornings.
To play in the Vets Section is something special. To qualify you should be over 55. We cater for all handicaps and different levels of ability and new members will receive a warm welcome. As well as the competitions and trophies to play for, there is the added bonus of playing away at some of the best courses in the surrounding area.
All our matches are played with great spirit and friendly rivalry but we always play to win as we are representing Wanstead. It is a great way of socialising with like minded members of other clubs.
Many golfers who have joined the Vets have commented that it is the most enjoyable golf that they have ever played.
The Vets meet three times a week and play competitions through the year.
Wanstead Vets have their own website which shows upcoming fixtures and competitions and has results and news for all of the section. https://wansteadgolfvets.com/
