Welcome to Bexleyheath Golf Club

Recognised by the R&A in 1909, there is evidence that Golf has been played on this site since 1907. There have been many changes over the years but the essence of the club has remained.

 

Bexleyheath Golf Club is a 9-hole parkland course set in the London Borough of Bexley in the northwest corner of Kent, easily accessible from both the A2 and M25.

 

On visiting Bexleyheath Golf Club you will be sure of a warm welcome both on and off the course.

 

The course itself is made up of 6 par 3s and 12 par 4s on the men's card. With a yardage of just 5232 off the back tees and a par of 66 you may be forgiven for thinking a good score is just around the corner, however the yardage belies the difficulty of this gem of a 9 hole course. The Standard Scratch Score has just been re-evaluated and has been assessed at 67.

 

Always in superb condition and one which will offer an interesting challenge to both high and low handicappers alike.

 

After an enjoyable day's golf, we trust you will return to the Clubhouse to unwind and reflect on your day's golf where our friendly bar/catering staff are waiting to serve you.

 

For members we have a full social and competition diary running throughout the year.

 

We currently have membership vacancies in all categories, please see our membership page for current annual subscription rates and special offers on full 7 day membership.

 

We look forward to seeing you.

 

The Captain's Log - May 2017

 

 

Wed 29th March
The first thing I did as Captain was to attend Mike Mitchell’s funeral. The club was well represented by 15 of us.

Sun 2nd April
My Drive-in, which was a great day, enjoyed I hope by all who were able to be there, and certainly enhanced by the weather. Thanks to Julie, and all who contributed to that day. There have been many compliments to the club from the visiting Captains and guests.

Wed 5th April
It was my pleasure to formerly introduce Vice Captain Tony to the members for the 1st Wednesday evening competition of the year – attended by 50 players. A great start to Tony’s year.

Fri 7th April
I had the pleasure of attending the Annual Kent Captains’ Dinner at the Weald of Kent Golf Club. There were 12 of us representing the club and we had an excellent evening. Ian Irving was the guest speaker who was much better than last year’s, but for those of us who heard him a few months ago at the London Captains’ Dinner, we already knew some of the punchlines.

Many thanks to Julie for driving Tony and I (and Liam) to that event.

Sun 9th April
Attended Cherry Lodge GC for new Captain Richard Watson’s drive-in. The Captains of the other 5 clubs in our group all met at Eltham Warren and travelled together in a minibus.

Thursday 13th April
Had our first Friendly of the season – at home to Sidcup. There was a small hiccup at the start, as although we had told them it was 1 for 1:30, they thought it was 2 for 2:30. We had a full squad with reserves, but Sidcup told us in advance that they could only muster 10. 5 groups contested the day, but the last group was a three ball as one of their team didn’t turn up. I’m pleased to report a 4-1 victory for our first match, and thanks to VC Tony for organising the day.

Monday 17th April
Played with Linda Emerton in the Easter Monday Mixed American Greensomes. Apart from me getting the wrong start time, it was a great day. Many thanks to Linda as Ladies Captain of the Day, and to the Ladies section as a whole for hosting and organising the day.

Friday 21st April
Although not an official club event, the Ramblers/B.O.G.S. annual matchplay tournament was a great day. A lot closer this year, the result was 6-all, so although the B.O.G.S. kept the trophy, it is fair to say that the bragging rights have been shared this year. There was the usual banter between the two teams, but at the end of the day, we all sat down together to a meal and shared each others company.

Saturday 22nd April
A good time was had by all at the St. George’s Day Night. Thanks to Peter Haggar for his organisation, and to Linda and Chris Emerton for helping the House Committee with the putting up, and removal of the decorations.

Friday 28th April
Played in the Vets team away at Eltham Warren, where we won 3½ to 1½. A brilliant performance against a club that are difficult to beat on their own turf.

Sunday 30th April
Attended the Drive-in for Steve Weeks who is the new Captain of Dartford GC. Having attended three now, I’ve noticed that everyone does it slightly differently. Dartford also have Mid-Kent, Woodlands Manor and Wrotham Heath in their circuit, so it was good to meet their Captains and find out a bit about their clubs too.

 

Best wishes
