Inter-Club - "How It Works"




Each year, Stoke by Nayland Seniors’ section have matches against fifteen other local clubs, home and away, making a total of thirty matches.

If you wish to play in these matches, you must have played in at least three Seniors Stableford or Medal competitions during the twelve months prior to your entry, unless you are a new member in your first year.

The team is selected 2 weeks prior to the match date and is made up of sixteen players on each side, eight four-ball, better-ball games in each match.

The prime objective behind team selection is to find a place in the teams for everyone throughout the thirty matches who puts his name forward to play, and pick teams that will give both an enjoyable day out and good opposition for the other team.

How it works: -

Seniors’ wishing to play in these matches are invited to enter their names and handicap on the match availability sheets which are displayed on the Seniors’ Notice Board six weeks before each match date. If you are available and wish to be picked simply put your name on the list.

The teams will be selected and the team sheets posted around two weeks before the match date. If you are selected, please add a tick to your name to acknowledge you have seen the notice and are available to play. Also please make a note of the assembly time, particularly for away matches.

In the event that you are picked and you cannot play, then you should contact the first available reserve on the team sheet and invite him to play instead of you. (All telephone numbers are in the members’ diary). If he cannot play then you ask the next reserve and so on.

When you have found a replacement, it is imperative that you put their name on the list in place of yours and then telephone Mike Moore to advise him of the change.

If you have any special dietary requirements, please contact Mike Moore with details as soon as possible.

As a playing member of the team, you would be expected to wear the Seniors’ white golf club shirt and maroon golf jersey or pullover; these items of clothing have the Seniors’ club logo on them. If you don’t have these items or need to replace them, the seniors committee, have purchased a stock of these items and your contact for this is Paul Sandfield.

Most of our inter club matches both home and away have a meal following play; Jacket and Seniors’ club tie or Smart Casual is the expected dress code.
