The Barton Bowl was inaugurated in 1989 by the then out-going Lady Captain, Anne Barton – now Anne Koychev.
The format is quite unusual: throughout the year, each woman member can nominate one Sunday to play against the Women’s Captain. On that day, her score in the competition is compared with that of the Women’s Captain. There is a list on the Club house notice board upon which you register your intention to nominate a date before play commences.
And then, at the end of the year, the top 8 who have fared the best against the Women’s Captain on their chosen day play off in a Stableford competition for the Barton Bowl. The play off is generally held in conjunction with another appropriate event.
