The Foxes section is a long standing and integral part of Northwood Golf Club. The section encompasses gentlemen members within the handicap index range of 7.5 to 20. As this is the first year of the World Handicap System we are awaiting guidance as to where the divisions between club sections should sit and it may be that the Foxes handicap index range will tighten going forward.
Although our season will be impacted by Covid related lockdown we still hope to play inter club golf. Our NGC Foxes 2021 diary currently comprises 13 inter club matches (5 Away and 8 Home). Our competition is neighbouring golf courses including prestigious names such as Moor Park, Gerrards Cross and Burnham Beeches. Fixtures are played during the week with a team of 12 playing a Four Ball Better Ball format. In keeping with the friendly nature of the competition dinner follows the golf.
As well as the inter club matches with our neighbouring clubs NGC Foxes participate in two annual one day competitions: The Foxes Festival; and The Foxes Championship. These one day competitions are hosted on a rota basis. These competitions have been cancelled this year and have been rescheduled for 2022
In addition to the regular fixtures a number of one off events/competitions will be held at Northwood during the season. Theses include matches against the Rabbits and Ladies Sections.
NGC Foxes also hold three section competitions during the year. One is a single day event, the Spring Meeting which has been cancelled for 2021. The other two are knockout competitions, The Reynard Trophy which is a summer singles competition, and the Foxes Winter Four Ball which, as the name implies, is played over the winter months.
Invitations to matches and competitions will be issued on Intelligent Golf via the club website.
The Foxes Section is managed by Committee, appointed at the AGM, and the current incumbents are:
Ian Johnston Captain
Bill Sawyer Secretary (on sabbatical)
Stuart Hart Temporary Secretary
Stephen Lee Treasurer
The Committee is keen to see as many NGC Foxes as possible participate in matches and events in the coming year
