Played over 2 rounds in September of each year the Howitt Bowl and Baker Salver are our club's most prestigious competition, see below for a brief history of the competitions.
Entry is open to golfers with a handicap of 6 or less.
The club's most prestigious and certainly most valuable trophy. Presented to the club by Mr & Mrs Howitt, in 1898, in memory of their son, Mr C V Howitt who died at the early age of 26 in 1898. It was decreed that the Howitt Bowl should be an Open Scratch Competition, although the first competition, in 1898, was won by a North Warwickshire member, Mr F W Clive. After 1904 it was decided to play it over 36 holes and to present a gold medal to be paid for out of the entrance fee of 2/6d.In 1911 it was won by a North Warwickshire member, Mr M L Owen , and has been won once subsequently by another North Warwickshire member, Mr R Porter. It was resolved, in 1911, that the Bowl be played for annually on the links of the holder in the month of October, except that it shall be played for every third year on the links of North Warwickshire. Around the time of our Centenary, due to the reluctance of Clubs to host the Competition when it had been won by one of their members, it is now contested each year at North Warwickshire. It is currently sponsored by Pertemps. Originally open to low handicap players from Warwickshire and neighbouring counties, the net is now being cast further a field. It is played in September over 2 rounds on a Saturday. Winner is the player with the best Gross Score
The Baker Salver
This trophy was presented to the club in 1981 by Mr Baker of Copt Heath Golf Club. He was a previous winner of the Howitt Bowl. It is played for in conjunction with the Howitt Bowl and is presented to the player with the best Nett score.
