A comprehensive review has been carried out on the 'Competition Rules and Procedures' Document for the Veterans Section. This Document shows an organisation chart and the duties carried out by the Veterans Committee throughout each year, Rules of Veterans run competitions, Organising of the Veterans Open and Ladies Night events and the running of K.G.V.L. and K.G.U. League matches as well as Friendly Matches with other clubs.
The Veterans Over 60s Team lost Away to Ashford and then won against Ashford at Home to level up matters.
The Super Seniors got off to a flying start with wins against St,Augustine's at Home and Hemsted Forest Away but suffered a set back by losing to Walmer and Kingsdown Away.
But the success of the season so far was the win for our Team against last years champions Sundridge Park Away in the first round of the K.G.U. Veterans Fourball Championship.
We will be running a raffle throughout Open Week, A prize donation from members would be most Welcomed.
We are also looking for sponsors regarding the New Tee Signs as there are a few available at £150 plus V.A.T.

With the start of my Junior Coaching Programme very much on the horizon, I have been in discussions with the Greens Committee and Head Greenkeeper about creating the safest possible facilities in which to conduct the junior coaching. We already have a large, undulating putting green as well as the short game area, but it's the long game facility I need to improve.
When the Junior Coaching Programme reaches its capacity in the summer months, I can accommodate and anticipate groups of up to 12 juniors at a time. 12 juniors whacking golf balls up our current facility on a Saturday afternoon with 20 or so cars parked adjacent, it's only going to end in tears.So my master plan is to create, initially, a basic long game facility in the Quarry in front of the clubhouse
Jay will be helping me make a teeing area over the next couple of weeks, but what I need for Phase One of the project is to create suitable access to the Quarry floor. I am therefore looking for volunteers to help me clear a pathway through the light undergrowth that is blocking my intended route. So if you fancy yourself as a bit of a gardener or just want to help me and the future of the club out a little bit, contact me in advance and then come along at 6pm on Thursday, 5 May. Jay will be providing some appropriate tools, but anyone interested in helping that wants to bring their own tools, suitable for clearing brambles, ivy, twigs and grass, then feel free to come along armed.
