April meeting at Westerham


We look forward to seeing you on Friday at:-

Westerham Golf club
Valence Park
Brasted Road
TN16 1LJ



This course offers stunning views over the Kent North Downs and is a superb par 72 course in excess of 6,000 yards.  The course has seen investment and improvement over the last two years and we understand the USGA specification greens are in excellent condition

The weather is looking dry and reasonable with a dry week running up to the event:-

Format: Tea/coffee + bacon rolls on arrival from 12.45 onwards. 18 holes of individual and team stableford competition followed by a one course meal to finish. Dress code on this occasion for the meal is smart casual.

Four competitions to be played for are:-

Individual Stableford

18 hole competition off full society handicaps. The April event at Mannings Heath last year was abandoned after 9 holes due to flooding. The 2015 winner was Micky Sellence with 38 points at Hever GC.

Team Stableford

18 hole competition with the best two scores from the teams of three counting as usual. 2016 as above was rained out after 9 holes but as a benchmark Paul Hillman, Malc Staplehurst and Ken Wapling won this event in 2015 at Hever GC with 75 points.
