The Club organises a number of events that are decided over more than one round. These events are listed and described here with links to the Honours Boards and current year's results as they become available.

Anniversary Trophy

Results | R1  R2  R3 | Honours Board

The Trophy is awarded to the player with the lowest net score of three from the four Jubilee Trophies, i.e. the Silver (1924-1949), Golden (1924-1974), Diamond (1924-1984) and Platinum (1924-1994) Trophies.

The Golden Jubilee Trophy is also a Top Dog Event.

Barton Bowl (Ladies)

Qualifiers | Results | Honours Board

The Barton Bowl was inaugurated in 1989 by the then out-going Lady Captain, Ann Barton - now Ann Koychev.

The format is quite unusual: throughout the year, each lady member can nominate one Sunday to play against the Lady Captain. On that day, her score in the competition is compared with that of the Lady Captain. There is a list on the Club house notice board upon which you register your intention to nominate a date before play commences.

And then, at the end of the year, the top 8 ladies who have fared the best against the Lady Captain on their chosen day play off in a Stableford competition for the Barton Bowl. The play off can be held in conjunction with another appropriate event.

19 & 26 June

Club Championship (Ladies)

R1 | R2 | Results | Handicap Cup | Pembroke Cup | Honours Boards

The Ladies' Club Championship is played over two medal rounds, one on each course, held at the same time as the Men's Club Championship. The trophy was originally given to the Ladies Section by Mr. Eric Stratford.

The lowest aggregate gross score over the two rounds wins. Additionally there is the Handicap Cup for the lowest aggregate net score amongst handicaps 24 or less and the Pembroke Cup for the lowest aggregate net scores amongst handicaps 25 and over.

19 & 26 June

Club Championship (Men)
Format & Rules

R1 | R2 | Senior | Junior | Handicap Trophy | Honours Boards

Played over two consecutive Sundays, once on each course. The lowest aggregate gross score wins. There are two divisions, by handicap, roughly dividing the playing membership into even sized divisions. Normally the Senior division is for handicaps up to and including 16, whilst the Junior division is for handicaps of 17 and above.

There are specified starting orders based on handicap and results. In the first week players go out generally in handicap order. In the second week, players go out in results order.

There is also a Handicap Trophy for the best net score over the two rounds.

15 & 22 May

Committee Cup (Ladies)

Results | R1 R2 | Honours Board

The format for this competition can vary at the Committee's discretion. This year it will be decided by the best aggregate stableford score.

Dowling Cup (Ladies)

Results | Honours Board

The winner of this competition is decided by taking the aggregate of the six best net scores in any club medal competition between February and November. This includes not only the ladies monthly medal competitions but also all the mixed Jubilee events, Opens and the Lissaman Cup competitions.

This competition roughly equates to the Menís Top Dog Trophy, but fortunately is not named in a similar manner!

Grand Medal Trophy (Men)

Results | R1  R2  R3  R4  R5  R6  R7  | Honours Board

The trophy is awarded to the player who posts the best five net scores in the Monthly Medals from March to October.

Date TBA

International

R1 | R2 | Team | Individual | Honours Boards

The International is a team event played over two Sundays. Players join one of three teams based roughly on nationalities - England, Ireland and Rest of the World.

The first Sunday is played as a qualifier. The best six men and the best two ladies from each team qualify to represent their team in the second week. Both weeks are played as Stableford events.

The team with the best total score for it's eight players wins on the second weekend. There is a prize for the best Man and best Lady score of the second weekend. Additionally, on the second weekend, there are a number of other prizes open to all players, not just the eight playing for their team

The LGU award Silver & Bronze division winners for the best aggregate score of four rounds from medals played from March to October. The winners are then eligible to play in the national LGU competition for their division.

Spring & Autumn Meetings (Ladies)

Spring Meeting  Medal | Better Ball
Autumn Meeting  Medal | Better Ball

Both are held over two weeks, the first round of each competition normally being a singles medal round and the second round is pairs playing either Foursomes or Four Ball Better Ball. The results from the two medal rounds are aggregated and the player with the lowest net score wins the Committee Cup.

It is important to remember that attendance at both the Spring and Autumn meetings is required in order to participate in the Committee Cup and that a poor round in the Spring does not necessarily scupper the chances of winning in the Autumn.
