Stanmore Foxes

PastedGraphic-1.jpg

The Foxes section is for both five and seven-day members with a playing handicap from 9 to 19 and is affiliated to the Middlesex County Foxes Association. It is the largest section at Stanmore with over 200 golfers in this category by way of handicap. There is no other qualification required to join this section and you are entitled to play in all events subject to a £5.00 subscription and entering your name on the appropriate sheet in the men's locker room.

Inter club matches are restricted by number and therefore it is advisable to enter as early as possible.

The Foxes playing season is from April to September and includes 9 biannual matches against nine other clubs. There are ten players per team and the format is four-ball-better-ball. These matches are played on a friendly but competitive basis, are midweek and generally start at 2.30pm followed by dinner at about 7.30pm. The golf is free with a charge around £13 - £15 for your post match meal.

There are similar matches played against the other sections of the club: High Handicap, Tigers, Ladies, Juniors and the Past Foxes Captains.
