Men's Captain

David Tushingham

"I'm very proud to have been elected Club Captain of Tenterden Golf Club for 2018: it is a great honour.

Golf is a brilliant game and at Tenterden we have a beautiful and challenging course that can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities. Every hole is different and packed with hazards, so 13 years after I became a member, every time I play here it's a stimulating test. As someone who was initially new to the area and works from home, I also value the wide range of friendships that I have been able to make through the club.

As well as playing golf, the club also makes an active contribution to the local community and I'm delighted that in 2018 we will be raising funds and awareness for an inspiring local charity, The Teddington Trust."

Vets' Section

Our Veterans 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 Vets' 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.

Vets' Captain

Bob Day

"I joined the Club in 2012 and I now live in Woodchurch, having moved from East Sussex.

I have been playing this great game for over 52 years and have represented the Club in league matches and also Club friendlies. I actively take part in Club knockouts and all other Club competitions.

I feel very proud to be given the opportunity to be the Vets' Captain and my sole wish is to carry on the good work from the previous Vets' Captains and to promote the Club.

I play 3/4 times a week in different swindles and my wife Anne has often told me that it's my second home. But I love it!!"

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.

I enjoy my time at the club immensely and i hope to continue as a member for many years to come.I love playing on such a lovely course which is a great challenge and always in such brilliant condition.
