Veterans in 2019

Veterans 2019

Veterans at London Beach

The Veterans section at London Beach is an active and friendly group of players over the age of 55. We have competitions most Wednesdays, meeting at 08:30, as well as matches against other clubs throughout the year. Small groups also meet most Monday and Friday mornings for informal golf.

Like to join us?

We welcome new players with or without handicaps. As you can see from the current handicap list below, we have a wide range of abilities so any vet will fit right in. For more information, or to join us, contact the Pro Shop on 01580 767 616, email: Proshop@londonbeach.com
