Apart from regular monthly medal and stableford competitions, there are annual trophies to be competed for and won, for individual and pairs knockout competitions.
Plus, there are a number of weekend roll ups and a major roll up on both a Monday and Thursday called ‘The Blobby Pot’. A great way for new members to become integrated into the club. A social but competitive event, where attendance is only required when you can make it! During the summer there are usually around 60 members playing each day.
There are also roll ups on most other days of the week, so there are always opportunities to get a game!
The Ladies’ Section is a thriving, supportive and friendly group which, as well as loving its golf, involves itself in every aspect of Club life.
Social roll-ups take place on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Ladies’ competitions are played every Tuesday. These are a mixture of singles, team and fun events and include fixtures with, and against, the Willmotts (Seniors).
Between March and November, monthly competitions are held on Tuesdays and on a weekend day. The ladies’ Section also has a number of singles and pairs knockout competitions which take place throughout the year.
Organisation of a Ladies’ Open, Invitation Day, Exchange Day and a Ladies’ Weekend Away are some examples of a very full golfing year.
There is close involvement with Bedfordshire Ladies’ County Golf Association, with respect to representation on its committee and good participation in County competitions and events.
A.G. & W.S. ladies take part in both the County Shield and Scratch Leagues, playing against other Bedfordshire clubs.
From April to October, there are friendly matches for ladies during the week and for business ladies at a weekend, in addition to mixed pairs matches on Sundays.
Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club has a very active Junior Section which it is keen to cultivate and develop. The junior section is supported by all other sections in the club particularly the Seniors and Mens Section.
Our Juniors enjoy their own Monthly Medal/Stableford competitions and Summer and Winter knockout competitions. Our Juniors are also encouraged to enter many of the senior competitions once they have appropriate handicaps.
Our Juniors represent the club playing against other local clubs in the Junior Tavistock Trophy and Vale League, some play in the club scratch team; others represent the county or are part of the England coaching system.
We welcome all standards of player and help develop them as we believe them to be the future of the club. The Juniors also have access to excellent coaching support through our professional Richard Lally who will help with this development. Richard can provide personal coaching in his Performance Studio using the latest video equipment.
