The Men’s section
The Men’s section of Shortlands Golf Club provides members with golf opportunities that suit their individual abilities and aims. Shortlands participates in county-wide competitions such as the Jack Hicks and the North Kent Trophy, where we have been successful in the recent past, as well as a variety of internal competitions. These range from the monthly medal, generally held on the first weekend of each month, to a number of individual and pairs knock-out competitions, during both summer and winter. A mid-week nine-hole medal is also organised so those without much time can maintain their playing handicap, popular on summer evenings.
For more social golf, a number of roll-up competitions are held on Saturday, and on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. The calendar also includes team and individual competitions; St.Georges Day (April), Captains Week (June), Turkey Trot (September).
Details of everything going on is posted on the website and on the club noticeboard.
The winners of the other competitions in the week are also expected to attend the Prize Giving. “Below is a sample of a Captain’s Week Schedule.”
