Men

Kenilworth at Llandrindod Wells


For gentlemen golfers at Kenilworth there are a variety of competitions and matches throughout the season to satisfy every taste.

The monthly medal competitions, usually held on the first Saturday of the month, attract a full field with the tee sheet beginning at 7 am and closing at 3 pm.  These are played in three divisions based on handicaps.

The competitions considered to be the Majors include the  Founders Trophy (match play singles) and the Spring Alliance (match play pairs) taking place throughout the summer months.  There are three singles match play knockout tournaments for which members have to qualify via Saturday competitions during April and May - the Mitchell Goblet, the Garrard Cup and the De Montfort Trophy.   The sixth Major is the Phelps Bowl which is a 36 hole medal competition played over a weekend in August.

There are competitions for pairs played in foursomes and greensomes format.  Weekday medal competitions “Extra Medals” provide additional opportunities for medal play on a “turn up and play” basis and allow those who aren’t available at weekends to compete in such competitions.

Three teams compete against other clubs in match play format.  The scratch team takes part in the Mid Warwickshire League which is a formally organised competition and in which Kenilworth usually performs well.  In addition there are opportunities to play in the A team and B team.  These teams play against other local clubs on a social basis – not in a formal league.  For those who wish to take part sign up sheets are placed on the noticeboard outside the gents' locker room.

The list of matches would not be complete without mention of the annual club matches against Minchinhampton in Gloucestershire and Llandrindod Wells in mid Wales.  The latter is played on a home and away basis each year with a very social weekend at Llandrindod being one of the highlights of the year for Kenilworth members.  The weekend includes a singles stableford competition – the Les Williams Trophy - for players from both clubs as well as the hard fought match between the clubs.  The photo above shows the two teams of players enjoying the sunshine after the match dinner in 2015.

As well as the men’s competitions there are mixed competitions which take place throughout the year in singles or pairs formats.  The grudge match with the ladies for “The Bone of Contention” is a mid summer event and follows months of negotiation over how handicap adjustments between the ladies and gents should be set and precedes months of wrangling as to why they were wrong.
