The Gents’ Section at Conwy

This section of Conwy Golf Club represents the majority of members: all full male members are included. The core golfing activities of the Club revolve around these members; all standards of golf are catered for, from the elite to the handicap golfer.We have traditionally provided a friendly but competitive atmosphere in which to play golf.

Weekday golf is mostly social, through the late spring, summer and early autumn there is a weekly Friday evening social competition taking varied formats. More structured competition is organised at weekends: these are the formal named “board” competitions where there is an outright winner, the monthly medals and more social events generally played in two divisions according to handicap -competition is fierce and entry is booked on line or via the professional.

There are three main individual knockout competitions, the Scratch Championship for lower handicaps, the Club Championship and the Mellor Trophy. There is also a pairs foursome knockout-the Beacon Salvers. Gents are always welcome to play in the mixed pairs competitions.

Conwy enters teams in the Caernarfonshire inter-club leagues-the Bayonet Scratch league and the Norman Brookes league for gents with handicaps of 6+: players are always welcome.

Golf at Conwy can be as sociable or competitive as you wish, which ever form you prefer, the course will always provide a challenge.

Seniors

Our aim in the senior section is to enjoy friendly yet competitive golf.

We have a long standing senior section with over 60 paid up members ranging in age from 55 to over 80, and handicaps ranging from 10 to 28. We hope to increase our membership this year, and look forward to welcoming new members into the section.

Our regular day for most competitions and home matches is Monday, although some are played on other weekdays.

We have an extensive and varied diary of events throughout the year which include 20 or so matches home and away with local clubs. All paid up members of the senior section are eligible to play irrespective of handicap or age. There are also away days, in-house trophy competitions, and of course, our annual Christmas lunch.

Potential new members over the age of 55 are most welcome to join us, as indeed are existing club members who have matured to this age.

Ladies

We have a thriving Ladies section comprising of Silver and Bronze divisions with plenty of competitive, representative and social golf to cater for all levels of playing abilities. The Ladies section is keen to welcome both new-to-golf and experienced players to join the Club.

The Club participates in several National Ladies Competitions including the Mail on Sunday Classic; Coronation Foursomes; Australian Spoons; and Daily Mail Foursomes to name but a few.

We welcome young golfers of all ages and abilities from total beginners to single handicap players. We extend a warm welcome to all juniors and help them realise that golf is a fantastic sport in which social skills and sporting excellence develop side by side.

We have two levels of membership:

  • Primary school, Annual subscription £25.00
  • Secondary school. Annual subscription £75.00

(Juniors of primary school age who are children or grandchildren of FULL members are free)

Coaching and playing

Our aim, first and foremost, is to ensure that our youngsters enjoy themselves and learn new skills through focused tuition from our Professional staff and qualified volunteers. Regular taster sessions are organised which centre on the basic elements of golf. Graded activities range from short game practise sessions, chipping, putting and bunker technique to 18-hole competitions for the most accomplished.

We are fortunate that our Club Professional, Andrew Blake, is actively involved in the coaching of the Caernarvonshire Junior County Team.

During term time most coaching sessions are held on a Saturday morning and are organised by the club professional and his coaching staff.
All junior competitions are played during the school holidays, and this is the time when juniors who need to gain a handicap do so under guidance from the Junior Organiser.
