Winter Rules: 7th October 2017
Winter Rules have been introduced today Saturday 7th October 2017
Players may now pick clean and place their ball on closely mown areas. In competition golf this is 6 inches and in friendly golf 12 inches not nearer the hole. Once the ball has been replaced it is "in play"
The white lines will be introduced around the par 3 holes indicating where on these holes the rule applies but until that time the rule applies on all closely mown areas.

Club Night - Fri 4th August 2017
A big thank you to all sections of Kington Golf Club for your support at last Friday's Club Night. It was great to see so many members joining in and thankfully the weather held off for us.
We managed to put together 7 four balls with members from each of our four club sections represented within each. Our club Captains played together in the first match, however Ryan Hotchkiss deputised for Tom RItchie.
The Junior section is always very busy at this time of the year, however a few of our more senior juniors stepped in to support and attempted to live up to their very high standards... Thank you for your support, Rob Metcalfe Jnr and Joe James Junior!!
The final group was supported by a new addition to the ladies section 'Titchla' who very much enjoyed playing from the red tees.... unfortunately her pre round warm up routine meant that she was of no danger in the scoring department but he did look the part !!
A big thank you to Stuart & Abbie for the fantastic BBQ. We were entertained by the very talented Ross McQueen & Murray on his sax. A great evening was had by all.
The Lucky Number winners were:-
- 1st Barry Pennell £110
- 2nd John Catchpole £60
- 3rd Tim Block £35
(Envelopes are behind the bar)
Perhaps this will become an annual fixture... thank you for all your support!
