I’m looking forward to being the Captain of the Gentlemen’s Seniors for 2017.
The level of involvement in the Seniors seems to have developed during Brian’s time as Captain in 2016. I hope that this progress can be maintained and that we can increase the level of membership and participation further during my captaincy.
We are a group open to all Gentlemen aged 55 or over, and will always welcome new members of all abilities, particularly those new to the Club.
We organise various competitions which are run throughout the year. These are an ideal opportunity to meet other Club Members socially and to qualify to represent the Club in Seniors' matches which are held against Seniors' Teams from fifteen of the top clubs in the surrounding counties. These are normally on a home and away basis, no green fees are charged but you are obliged to attend the post match meal (cost about £12). To be eligible to play in the Seniors' matches you need to have played in the 14 hole and/or the eclectic competitions. An availability chart for matches will be put on the Seniors' notice board in early March, please keep it up to date.
Visit Seniors' Activities and Eligibility in Seniors' section of the website for further information.
There is a full spread of abilities throughout the Seniors' membership and most if not all of the players have retained the competitive instincts of their younger days, giving all our events a good sharp edge.
To help the organisers we ask Members to put their contact details (telephone and e-mail addresses) on the Club Website (My Profile) and keep them up to date. This will help to assist with easier communication for all concerned and especially help reduce the time required to organise team matches and responding to last minute changes.
For further information please feel free to contact either myself or one of our Committee Members listed below, or visit the various areas of the Club website:-
