Welcome to The Barton under Needwood Golf Society

Founded in 1994, we are a long established golf society that organises nine golf days per year throughout the midlands as well as two weekend or midweek trips away..

The majority of golf days consist of coffee on arrival, 9 holes in the morning, soup and sandwich lunch, 18 holes in the afternoon, two/three course meal followed by a prize giving.

Golf days vary in cost between 35 and 60 depending upon the venue. We mainly play individual stableford competitions but we also incorporate a four-ball better ball.

We have members of all ages and all standards ranging from single figure handicappers through to beginners. Nobody feels out of place or embarrassed at their standard of golf as our aim is to have a days golf with a few laughs thrown in at everyone's expense.

The annual subscription fee is 25 which covers the general running costs of the golf society and this also helps to subsidise the cost of some of the golf events.

To run alongside our society events we also organise the following:

  • Matchplay Knockout (an intersociety matchplay competition contested each year)
  • League Cup (awarded to the most consistent golfer of the year)
  • Birdies League (points are scored for each birdie, eagle and albatross)
  • 2's sweep (5 is awarded for a 2 scored at a golf day - 10 if there are only two 2's and 20 if it's the only 2 of the day)
  • Most improved player (awarded to the player whose handicap reduces the most over the year)
  • To raise some additional funds for the golf society, we also organise a National Lottery bonus ball draw.
