Welcome to the Seniors Section
Barry 'Fred' Pritchard
We have over 130 members in the Seniors Section and the easy way to meet them is to simply turn-up on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday morning between 07.30 and 09.30 (the most popular time is just before 08.00), and make-up a four ball with whoever arrives next. These are the unofficial roll-ups, although Wednesday & Friday mornings can sometimes be quite busy because other non-Senior members also use these days.
Monday mornings 07.00 to 10.00 is the normal official Seniors tee time, with competitions being held on most Mondays.
There are regular events – Medals, Stablefords, Scrambles, etc. Entry to regular competitions in now done only via the Club website which can be accessed either at the Club or at home. Advance notices appear on the locker room board 3 weeks in advance. When entering a competition you are encouraged to enter yourself in any available time slot as this is another good way to mix with other members.
In the course of the year about 30 friendly matches are played by the Seniors Section. These matches are played against other clubs in the area and entry for these matches is also now done online via the Club website. There are some additional trophy competitions such as the Knighton Heath Trophy in the summer and the Winter League during the winter months, both of which are knock-out events.
For over 30 years we have run an annual Seniors Open event in the summer. It is available for entry by all men players over the age of 60 who hold an active CONGU handicap of 24 or less. If you qualify and would like to enter this event then please visit this page.
