As well as individual formal competition play – stroke-play and matchplay – there are a number of inter-club team events which cover all handicaps and ages and offer all members the opportunity to compete against other clubs, both home and away.
These teams are Scratch (handicap + to 3), Tigers (4 to 9), Senior Scratch (over 55’s - single figure handicap), Club (no restrictions), Foxes (11 to 19), Seniors (over 55’s – handicap 8 to 20), Stags (no restriction) and Mixed (no restriction). A number of the teams play in County leagues where there is the opportunity to graduate to the finals, and others just play friendly matches with a number of nearby clubs.
In terms of competitions within the Club, in a typical year we hold over 50 mens' competitions, 7 mens' knock-outs, 11 All-Pairings and several Members' Golf and Supper Evenings. These along with all our team fixtures make West Herts a very popular Club. There is a host of Club silverware which is awarded at the annual men’s prize giving event.
For the more social golfer there are a number of roll-ups or swindles and these are listed alongside: further information on each group can be found in the members' section.
There is also the Gamefinder service which helps you to make up a game or to join a group looking for extra players. This can also be found in the members' section.
