Broadway Golf Club: COURSE OPEN
There are many different golfing experiences to enjoy as a Broadway GC Member.
A chat with our Club Professionals will normally give you some ideas regarding the best times to come and play. The Club Diary, along with the fortnightly White Boards, give a summary of the golfing calendar. However, Members are advised to check the BRS online Diary System, for any possible rearrangements.
The Main Competitions normally run between April and October on Saturday’s & Sunday’s. Medals and Trophies are played from the White Tees. The entry sheets are online on Master Scoreboard, normally 3 to 4 weeks before the Competition date.
Every month there are 2 Midweek Competitions, a Stableford and a Medal, either on a Wednesday or Thursday. These are less formal, played from the Yellow Tees and open all day. You enter in the Pro Shop and play with another Member/s.
If you are over 60, you automatically become eligible to join our very active Seniors Section. Their Competitions are played on Monday mornings.
There are four Teams:-
~ The 1st Team play in the NGFL League, the format is Scratch Matchplay Foursomes on Saturday afternoon. (5 at Home & 5 Away)
~ The B Team play 4BBB, mostly on a Saturday afternoon, although there are some matches played midweek throughout the season. Lists are put on the notice board in the Men’s Locker Room, for Members to put their names down. The B Team Captain, will always endeavour to give as many different players a game. (A mix of matches, Home & Away)
~ The Mixed Team have six matches, (3 at Home & 3 Away) all played on Sunday afternoons, playing a Greensomes format. The lists and fixtures for this team are displayed on the notice board in the foyer.
~ The Seniors Section matches are posted on the Seniors notice board in the Men’s Locker Room.
Both the Singles and Pairs Matchplay Knockout Competitions will be advertised on the notice board, in the Men’s Locker Room. Entry lists and payment to be made in the Professional Shop.
We run a Winter League between November and March fortnightly, on Sunday mornings. Breakfast is available and there is a Shotgun Start. You require a partner for this Competition and prompt entry is recommended, as this very popular event, is always fully subscribed.
There are a number of ‘Fiddles’, these are informal groups, who meet up and play at various times during the week. They normally have an organiser and usually run on a Stableford format.
Details of some of the more established ones, are listed in the Club Diary. Once again, a chat with our Professionals, will point you in the right direction, to a group, a time of day and a specific day of the week.
These ‘Fiddles’ are probably the best way to meet other Members.
Welcome to the Ladies Section of Broadway Golf Club, at present we have 127 lady members.
It is an honour for me to be continuing my tenure as the Ladies Captain at Broadway Golf Club for 2021. In these most unusual times the section Captains at our Club have been voted into post for a further year. We are most fortunate to enjoy a great course with wonderful, far-reaching views and a comfortable, welcoming clubhouse providing a friendly food and beverage service for all along with our pro shop services.
The ladies main competition day is Tuesday, Saturday mornings provide an opportunity for ladies who are working to take part in both qualifying and friendly competitions and they welcome any other ladies who are able to join them. There is also a regular Thursday roll up – The Birdies – which is very popular and well supported. Also, some of our newer ladies who are returning to golf and/or new to golf, get together on a Wednesday afternoon for coaching/9 hole play.
Broadway Golf Club has now joined the R & A Women in Golf initiative and appointed our own Charter Champion. As a result of this we are hoping to offer a pathway into golf for women and girls looking to take up golf, whilst also supporting the development of all women in the sport and increased female participation in the running of the Club.
We field three teams in the Cotswold District Ladies Golf Alliance, and a team for friendly four-ball matches against other clubs. There is also an opportunity to play in mixed inter-club matches and also regular mixed Club competitions open to all members of Broadway Golf Club.
I sincerely hope that 2021 will see a full return to the sport we all love under as near normal conditions as Covid 19 will allow. As Ladies’ Captain I am looking forward to participating and playing golf with both new and existing members during the coming year.
All Broadway club members over the age of 60 are eligible to join the Seniors Section, there is no official registration process and no charge.
There is competitive Seniors golf every Monday (except Bank Holidays) and the tee is reserved from 08.00 till 10.30. In addition there is a Senior’s roll up at around 8.00 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday though numbers are much reduced compared with Mondays when we have up to 60 players in the field.
On Mondays through the summer we have 12 Qualifying competitions, in addition we have a Seniors Open in May and a Seniors Invitation in August and 2 away days in May and September.
On the free Mondays (there are about 8-10 of these) we play a separate set of qualifiers (individual stableford with a rolling element and an eclectic competition built in).
We also have 3 individual KO competitions and a 2 round pairs competition. We play 24 friendly matches (12 home and away) against other local clubs and a match against the Ladies section and the men's B-Team.
On a Monday we have mainly team competitions in a random draw (Texas Scramble, Best 2 out of 3, Greensomes etc) and we operate a handicap cutting process to ensure prize money is spread around.
To enter a Monday competition you enter your name down on an entry sheet posted on the Seniors Notice Board. The sheets are posted 3-4 weeks ahead of the date of the competition. On the day, you pick up your card and pay £2 entry fee at the Pro shop.
Financially we are self-sufficient and contribute generously to the Club itself as well as several club charities and give support to the Juniors section. We also give gratuities to the staff from our funds as well as subsidising some of our events.
Socially we have an Annual Dinner and Prize Giving in November which include wives/partners/lady friends. The Dinner is very popular with well over 100 attending.
We disseminate information regularly to over 100 members by e-mail of which over 80 are regular players. Our overall objective is to provide regular competitive golf for senior players in an enjoyable atmosphere where winning is not all and the camaraderie and companionship have their place.
Although our juniors are welcome on the course at all times they do have their own special reserve tee time at 9:00am on a Saturday morning when they play in either the Junior Trophy Competitions or a Fun League that runs all year. We also meet at 5:30pm on a Tuesday when adults and juniors play together over 9 holes. No matter what your age or ability we can accomodate you.
Get in touch to find out more.
We look forward to hearing from you.
The scheme evaluates and assesses three areas of a Club's junior section, namely, coaching and playing; club environment, and child protection and duty of care.
