The vets section of Stonyhurst Park Golf Club is an active and central part of the club. It prides itself on providing a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for new members and is always looking to increase its numbers.

We are currently structured around a system with monthly captains with support provided by a Vets Secretary, Treasurer, Competitions Secretary and an overall organiser. This allows for maximum involvement of members and a sharing of various tasks.

From April through to the end of August a number of friendly fixtures are arranged with local clubs. Ability is less important than participation but that doesn't mean to say that it lacks a competitive spirit and a desire to win! We play on some amazing courses and always look forward to bringing our opponents back to our equally amazing course.

During the course of the year regular medal competitions take place and these have proved very popular, with specific sections introduced this year for over 75's. We also organise two away days each year. In 2018 these are arranged for Penwortham and Bracken Ghyl golf clubs.

For those who want to participate we also have Vets singles and doubles competitions each year.

A Seniors Open is also organised each year, this year it takes place on Thursday Aug 30th.

The SPGC vets section is also very keen to be an active part of the wider club hence our active part in the Club's Charity day each year and the organisation of events with the ladies section.

If after joining SPGC you are thinking of joining the Vets you will be very welcome. The joining fee of £5 means that you can participate in any of the events described. You will also inevitably meet new friends and enjoy a very active golfing experience.
