Please have a look below and explore some of the categories that are popular with our golfers.

Men's Section

Our men's section offer a variety of weekday and weekend swindle groups - all of which are very welcoming to new members.

We regularly play both friendly matches and competitions against our neighbouring clubs, giving an opportunity to represent the club at different levels and enjoy the hospitality offered and meeting fellow golfers.

Tenterden Golf has always been, and continues to be a very friendly club, and has such a strong membership across all sections. This, along with a buzzing schedule of social and competitive events, means it is a thriving club for any player.

Men's Captain

Paul Older

" I am honoured and excited to be elected Club Captain for 2020.
I become a member of Tenterdan Golf Club eleven years ago. I can still remember how friendly everyone was and also how welcoming. This is a reputation the Club still has today.

The course is challenging, but fair and a joy to play, whatever the season, with stunning views over the Kent countryside.

Members have the opportunity to play competitive golf, not only in Club competitions, but also in League and knockout competitions with other Clubs. We also play a number of ‘Friendly’ matches, both home and away, which are greatly enjoyed.

My chosen charity during my Captaincy is ‘Macmillan Cancer Support’."

Seniors' Section

Our Seniors section is open to all members over 60 years old regardless of ability. Our aim is to offer a complete programme of golf throughout the year with many competitions, friendly matches with other clubs and a very competitive and successful League team.

There are a number of informal playing groups meeting at various times throughout the week, each very welcoming to new members. For those wishing to round out the club experience there are many social events that occur throughout the year.

While these informal groups operate under their own playing policies; the Seniors' section provide the organisation of the formal competitions of which there are around 60 events per year. So, it's never a problem to find a group or a playing level at which to feel comfortable. And without a doubt, you will be made to feel comfortable at this extremely friendly club.

Seniors' Captain

Roy Keep

" I consider it a great honour to be appointed Seniors’ Captain for 2021 and through this role I hope to give service to the club I joined over twenty years ago.

Over those years I have enjoyed many friendly rounds of golf with lots of interesting players of all standards and like most golfers I still feel that my best round is yet to come!

Our Seniors’ Section at Tenterden is, I believe, the heart and soul of the Club and the Section gets stronger every year both competitively and socially.

I look forward very much to another year on our excellent and challenging course and to meeting new members and introducing them into the Section and the various playing groups within.

My chosen charity for the coming year is the Hospice in the Weald."

In the last 18 months we have seen 24 new lady members join the club, many of them new to golf. We are busy encouraging them and newcomers to join in all aspects of the section.

The Ladies' playing groups schedule is a busy one, with numerous informal and competition events throughout the week. There is much to get involved with.

In addition to our own playing groups and competitions we play friendly matches against other local clubs. These can be organised as either Ladies' or Mixed events. If you are looking to get involved in something more competitive we also take part in inter-club competitions such as the Pearson Trophy.

Ladies' Captain

Eleanor North

" I am delighted and honoured to be the Ladies Captain for 2020, and look forward to a very happy and enjoyable year.

Our Ladies Section is thriving. We pride ourselves on being welcoming to lady golfers of all standards and hold regular competitions and social events. We also enter teams for local and national competitions.

I have only played for about 7 years and my golf needs much improvement but the atmosphere and camaraderie at Tenterden makes up for my on-course frustrations. The course is in wonderful condition and it is always a pleasure to be out.

My charity this year is Medical Detection Dogs, an organisation which recognises and builds on the amazing skills of our canine friends.

I look forward to welcoming you."

We run many match fixtures against local clubs, and weekly group sessions for those looking for a more social experience. The Junior section is about getting together with others, so we also run events such as bowling and quiz nights.

Our PGA Pro and assistant offer regular group or individual coaching sessions for juniors to learn and improve their golfing skills.

I wish all players happy golfing in 2019!"
