Great Job Team Stanton!


A very big



To everyone involved in the hosting of the ENGLAND GOLF SENIORS COUNTY FINALS.

We excelled in all areas.

The Event Management team were brilliant and the attention to detail really shone through.

The Catering and Bar Staff (working under extreme pressure) did a fantastic job.

The Volunteers ensured the event ran like a well-oiled machine and did a superb job acting as hosts, ball spotters, parking attendants, practice ground supervisors, score board operators & controllers, setting up the course furniture, helping on the course etc, etc.

The Greenkeepers – Absolutely Brilliant Job! The number of complementary comments we received about the course and the greens in particular surpassed our wildest dreams.

And lastly the Membership at large – thank you for giving up the course for a few days.

We are immensely proud to be a part of such a great Club that can pull together and host an event of this stature, and to do so with such great success.

Dear Paul
"I'd like to congratulate you and all your staff at Stanton on the Wolds Golf Club for the excellent manner in which the English Seniors County Finals was organised and run.
All the Countries clubs fairways have suffered from the drought but the superb greens more than compensated.
Your volunteers, both in the clubhouse and out on the course, were outstanding.
You, the course, and the members were a credit to the County."

Bob Ward (President, Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs)

"I played at Stanton on the Wolds in the English Seniors Counties Championship in October 2018, the only word to describe the experience was outstanding. The clubhouse is traditional with a great atmosphere, the staff friendly and welcoming, with nothing being to much trouble, food was excellent. Now for the course, the layout is parkland, tight fairways but fair, the greens are the best I have ever played on in my 30+ years of playing top courses. If you are thinking of visiting Stanton on the Wolds GC....DO.... you will love it. Thank you to Paul Keeling secretary and Gwynnie assistant secretary, all the staff, members and Volunteers for your hospitality it has been second to none."

 John Busby & The Dorset Team

 Good Afternoon Paul,
"I thought I would just drop you a note to say CONGRATULATIONS on hosting a great event. It was obvious that the club were extremely proud to host the event and had put a huge amount of planning and preparation work into making it the huge success it was. Every competitor I spoke to said what a friendly club Stanton on the Wolds is and how the members, staff and volunteers had made us feel so SPECIAL. The catering was excellent, bar staff looked after all our needs, pro shop really helpful and of course the green staff for preparing such magnificent putting surfaces. I don’t think I have ever heard so many players praise greens as I did this week. Well done to all involved.Please pass on thanks to your committee and all involved in making it such a great and enjoyable week. All the very best "
