A warm welcome from from our Club Captain, ladies Captain, Seniors Captain and to our Junior Academy.

Captain's Welcome

Welcome to Cumberwell Park Golf Club, from Mark Hynes, Club Captain for 2020.

On behalf of the members, we very much appreciate your interest in Cumberwell Park Golf Club. We are a very friendly club, where expert and not-so-expert golfers will find a warm and friendly reception. Whether you are a visitor or a potential new member, please come to see us and say hello.

Our aim is to create an inclusive, golf-for-all culture at the Club, with competitive league matches, trophy events and knock out tournaments for those who want them, at the same time as offering friendly roll up social golf events. We organise this through the men’s club, through a flourishing and active Ladies Section, our very vibrant Seniors (55+) Section, and the thriving learning environment of our Junior Academy. 

With four 9 hole courses which can be played in any combination, a challenging par 3 course and top rate practice areas, Cumberwell provides great facilities to improve your game. Add to that the skills of our golf professionals and a great greenkeeping team, and Cumberwell has much to offer.

There are also many social events throughout the year held in our busy Clubhouse, where members and visitors can meet for a drink, a meal or a chat.

As Club Captain I am delighted to have chosen the Royal United Hospital Forever Friends Appeal as my Charity. The RUH in Bath has been a regular friend in need to many in the Club, their families, as well as visitors.

I had the privilege of being shown round the RUH by the head of fundraising recently. He explained the areas where Forever Friends has made a big impact. These include a second CT scanner, which has reduced waiting times from months to 48 hours. I also saw their superb new Therapies centre, and the utterly beautiful healing environment for seriously sick children. Much however remains to be done, including the new cancer centre. 

Events to raise funds will include the Captain’s Drive-In in late March, the Captain’s Weekend in July and a special “Golf Balls from Heaven” event in late August.

If you would like to discover more about what Cumberwell Golf Club has to offer, I or our Captain Elect, Tony Kujawa, would love to hear from you. You can contact us on captain@cumberwellpark.com.

Finally, I would like to say thank you so much to the James family for allowing me the privilege of serving as your Captain for 2020.

Lady Captain's Welcome

I would like to extend to everyone a very warm welcome to the Ladies Section of Cumberwell Park, my name is Helen Walker and I’ve been a member here for 7 years.

The James family have created a friendly, vibrant and inclusive atmosphere in the club and I shall continue to encourage this culture during my year as Lady Captain. There is a flexible range of membership options available, which makes Cumberwell an excellent choice.

As a section we have ladies whose ages range from teenage to, well it wouldn’t be polite to ask, but shall we say over 60. With handicaps ranging from single figures up to 40.

We get together every Monday morning and play either a fun competition, or a qualifying medal or stableford, over 9 or 18 holes, we also hold qualifiers at the weekend to accommodate ladies who cannot play during the week. The club also holds numerous mixed and team competitions throughout the year.

We have 2 scratch teams in the Wiltshire league, one 1st and one 2nd division, a handicap team who have recently been promoted to the 2nd division, friendly matches against 9 local clubs and ‘Welcome rounds’ for new and inexperienced golfers 2 or 3 times a month during the season.

For ladies who feel that playing 9 holes and retiring to the clubhouse for a cup of tea and a natter is ample, then we have a group of ‘9 holers’ who meet on 1st and 3rd Monday during the season.

We are privileged to play at such a high-quality golf facility, offering a varied mixture of 36 holes, a 9-hole Par 3 course, superb short game area and extensive driving range facilities. Whatever your level of ability we have an experienced and friendly group of professionals led by John Jacobs, who run group and individual lessons for beginners, as well as coaching established players who wish to develop, extend or refine their skills.

I shall be raising funds throughout the year for my chosen charity, the Wiltshire Air Ambulance, who receive no funding from the NHS, and who provide emergency medical support in often the most harrowing of circumstances.

We are keen to encourage new members who are always welcome. So if you would like to come and try the most exasperating, frustrating, exhilarating and captivating sport, do come and join us.

I look forward to meeting you throughout the year. ladycaptain@cumberwellpark.com

Welcome to the Senior's Section

A warm welcome to the Seniors’ Section of Cumberwell Park Golf Club from Section Captain – Graham Cogswell

Cumberwell Park GC is a friendly, welcoming club and the Men’s Senior Section aims to be the same.  With over 230 members, our goal is to provide the opportunity to play competitive golf in a friendly atmosphere. You are eligible to join us if you are a club member aged 55 or over.

To join please complete an application form, available on-line or at the club’s reception or speak to any member of the Seniors’ Committee. 

The Club reserves Tuesday mornings for Seniors’ 'Roll-Up' competitions. Section members can turn up in a two-hour window to play a mix of individual or team competitions. The “Roll-Up” presents a great opportunity to play with different players each week. You can see our entire programme via The Intelligent Golf App, on the Seniors’ Notice board or on the club’s website. The programme uses a varied combination of our four, nine-hole courses.

As well as the Tuesday competitions, we organise five Matchplay KO competitions and play over 30 summer interclub matches, home and away. The interclub matches present an opportunity for all members to play at other clubs and meet their members. To play in the Senior Section competitions you need an active handicap of 36 or below and a maximum handicap of 28 for the summer matches. Lower handicapped golfers have the opportunity to play in our successful interclub Winter League team (maximum handicap allowance 18).

In July the club hosts a popular Seniors’ Open which draws players from far and wide. 

These programmes, together with Away Days and golfing/social events throughout the year, gives a rich variety of activities for all.

We encourage all new Section members, of all abilities to join our welcome group, which plays every Thursday morning.  This group gives you an introduction into the friendly world of Seniors’ golf at Cumberwell. Before you turn up to play for the first time please email Steve Wilson (Tuesdays) or Jeremy Vivian (Thursdays) and we’ll arrange a welcome. 

My chosen charity is The Motor Neuron Disease Association and I hope to organise several fund-raising events for this cause, throughout the year. 

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Regards

Graham

What is the Junior Academy?

The junior academy is a thriving learning environment for up and coming juniors that are serious about progressing and improving their golf. The academy is a relaxed learning environment that is split up into 2 different sessions based on age.

Each session will focus on a specific skill within long game, short game and on the course, and a game-based activity will follow the coaching element. 

The academy is run by 3 PGA professionals ensuring all the children get excellent coaching and all the adequate help they need. Throughout the year there are many competitions for the juniors including eclectic on course scores and most improved players. 

The sessions run in conjunction with term time and are run after school on a Monday starting in March and running through to October.
The academy is a step up from the Junior Roll up sessions and is a great stepping stone into Junior Membership. 

We host roll ups each weekend on Saturdays and Sundays FOR £5 (equipment provided).

Please contact us for enquiries about joining Cumberwell, the academy and half term fun days
