The Drones section is the recognised senior section of Harpenden Golf Club with currently 120 members and in 2016 celebrates it’s half century.
The section is administered and run by a five man committee, headed by the Chief Drone and Treasurer, with other responsibilities divided between the Competition Secretary, Diary/Gatekeeper Secretary and Statistician. Many past Captains and some past Presidents are active members of the Drones.
There are no restrictions on joining the Drones, other than being a full members, over the age of 55 and not in full time employment. Although new members are generally introduced by existing members, this is not required and many new Drones have simply entered to play in one of the monthly events in the same way as entering of the club’s monthly stableford or medal events.
The Drones has a full playing calendar throughout the year with monthly stablefords and summer and winter knockout competitions, and from April until October matches with other golf club senior sections. Regular social events are also organised ranging from informal lunches to formal dinner with partners
