The Vets section is run for the more mature members of The Ridge golf club. Seniors are over the age of 55 and Veterans 60+
The Vets organise a number of internal competitions. including a Stableford competition every 1st Friday in the month and a medal competition every 3rd Friday in the month starting at 08:00. We also meet on Monday and Wednesday at 08:00, ball in the bag for 3 or 4 players depending on numbers.
Other Fridays are freeplay and that day's competition is decided by the captain.
As well as internal competitions, a number of external matches are played against vets’ sections of other clubs. These matches are competed for on a home and away basis. Ridge vets typically play matches against a total of 6 other clubs.
In addition there are a number of our members who belong to The Association of Kent Veteran Golfers (click here for link to AKVG) There are a number of fixtures at various clubs around the county and there is a donation to charity from the proceeds (at present this is the Kent,Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust)
Once a year, an away day (or Captains day) is organised at a club specified by the incoming captain. This year our incoming captain Pete Walters has chosen West Malling The Hurricane course.

In summary we are a friendly, enthusiastic group of golfers and always happy to meet new golfers whatever your standard.
