Midlands Ladies Veterans Team Championships.

On Monday 11th October through to Wednesday 13th October, Handsworth Golf club had the pleasure in hosting the Midlands Ladies Veterans Team Championships.

The event consisting of 10 clubs from the Midlands, starting with a team Greensome event on the Monday followed by two qualifying medal rounds on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Greensome was the warm-up event with Derbyshire being the victors finishing with 41 points. Taking second place on count back were Worcestershire from Derbyshire in third both with 38 points.

Tuesday, officially day one, first tee time at 9.30 saw the competition really begin with the first medal round. Three scores to count per team, left the scores at close of play tight with one point between the top three clubs. Nottinghamshire on 239 leading to Staffordshire and Worcestershire, both with 240.

Following food and an evening with entertainment by a very good Neil Diamond tribute act, it was time for the final day to commence.

Day three again saw a 9.30 start time, same format as the previous day. Everything to play for, Staffordshire being the current champions and only one point behind Nottinghamshire. The scoring as expected did not disappoint with Nottinghamshire coming home victorious finishing with a total score for the two medal rounds of 482 gross. Beating Staffordshire into second place with a gross score of 488 and Worcestershire into third with a score of 489.


The nett competition was taken by Leicestershire finishing with a score of 455 to Shropshire with 458 and Warwickshire with 463.

Seniors Pairs Open for Ladies and Gentleman - Thursday 29th July 2021

This senior’s competition is run annually and this year it was blessed by the sun gods, being held on a very sunny day in between days of otherwise heavy rain. A blustery wind and some tricky pin positions added spice to the proceedings and made for a suitably challenging day that was enjoyed by all that took part. Despite the rain of the previous days the course was in excellent condition and was highly praised by many of the 83 visitors who were among the 132 competitors on the day. A special thank you must go to Adam and his team for providing us with a course to be proud of.

The day was topped off by a superb meal. Tony’s home made steak pie was a massive hit and received many positive comments. The friendliness, efficiency and good humour of Melanie and the ladies running the drinks service, and of Dale serving the food, added greatly to the proceedings making sure that our guests were made to feel very welcome at Handsworth GC.

It was gratifying to see that many of this year’s visitors were returning visitors that had played in previous years. We hope that you enjoyed your day and that we will see you again at one of our future events.
