KENDAL’S ELDERLY GENTLEMAN’S GOLFING SOCIETY
The KEGGS section is a friendly group of members who meet up and play on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday to play and enjoy a round of golf. There is a larger range of handicaps in the KEGGS from 8 handicap all the way through to 28. The only entry requirement to joining the KEGGS is that you have to be over 55 years old and you will be welcomed into the section. As well as social golf the KEGGS have a series of matches, competitions, knockouts and away days all of which are explained below.
The KEGGS have a rollup on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11am to play 18 holes of social golf. All of the golf balls go into a hat and are drawn to see who plays with who.
The KEGGS have a stableford competition once a month on a Monday at 9:30am through the summer months to allow those who do not play in club competitions to maintain a vaild handicap. Entry fee is £1 and the winner takes all apart from a £2 deduction towards KEGGS funds.
The KEGGS have matches home and away against a variety of clubs in the area. These are very enjoyable and are a good way to make new golfing friends. You receive courtesy of the course for away matches but are expected to pay for your two course lunch after the event.
KEGGS KNOCKOUT COMPETITIONS
There is a match play knockout competition every summer for KEGGS members. The entry sheet goes up for this early in the year on the KEGGS notice board. Matches are arranged when convenient for those playing.
