The Cottesmore Veterans Golf Section (CVGS) is a section for members of the Club's Mens Section aged 55 and over.

Our aim is to promote a friendly environment for all standards of golfers to meet regularly and compete.

Play each week is in a pre-determined competition as published in the Club Diary and our Events Diary. Several of these competitions are charitable events designed to raise monies for the charity(ies) being supported by the CVGS in any calendar year.

Cottesmore is fortunate to have both an 18 Hole Championship course, the Griffin, and a 9 Hole course, the Phoenix.

We meet on Tuesdays with tee times starting at 7:40 on the Griffin and 9:50 on the Phoenix. Many of our members find the 9 Hole course more in line with their age and handicap.

It is also a very attractive way for Golflite members (aged 55 and over) to enjoy competitive golf. Golflite members are also very welcome to enter Griffin competitions but must use their credits in line with Cottesmore rules. Details of the Golflite membership are available from the Cottesmore Golf Club on 01293 528256

We also play regular Home and Away Club matches with other Clubs’ Senior Golf Sections.

With an active and experienced committee, a friendly and supportive membership, you can be sure of enjoying a game of golf with like-minded people, in an atmosphere of camaraderie, friendship and respect.

To join us you must first join Cottesmore by contacting the Club, but by downloading the Application for Membership Form  you will be able to bring it with you and immediately join us.

Those joining with an active CONGU handicap are immediately able to enter any or all our competitions. Those without a handicap are encouraged to submit qualifying cards covering 54 holes of golf (either 18 hole or 9 hole cards or a combination of both) for initial handicap assessment.


The Griffin is a classic parkland course with beautiful trees and vistas with water on several holes offering further challenges. Have you got what it takes


The Phoenix is a 9 hole course and offers a great introduction to golf. Both courses wind through tree lined areas but the Phoenix is much more forgiving.
