Seniors Golf

WHAT IS SENIORS GOLF??

 

The ‘Seniors’ is a relaxed and friendly competition played over 9 holes on Monday mornings, from the yellow (social) tees, for those over 55.

It was run from 1988 until 2014 under the stewardship of youngster, Ian “Tricky” Trickett. Maximum handicap is 50 (you start on 1 less than your GA handicap), there are no annual fees, visitors and beginners are welcome.

A feature of the group is the annual “Xmas Hams Day”. On this day, every regular player receives a substantial ham, along with the Xmas lunch.

Come along and join us on a Monday, just roll up from 7.30am, bookings not necessary.

TAMWORTH SENIOR GOLFERS RESULTS

MONDAY 7th SEPTEMBER

Forty Two players hit off on the front nine today with some phenomenal results.
To run fifth with 21 points and only get one ball would seem a tad disappointing.
And to top it off, no-one on 17 got a ball!

Overheard on the ninth:

We were doing our cards near the pro shop at the end of play, and heard Bill O’Brien’s raucous voice boom across the course, “Cop that Laurie!”

We looked across to the green just in time to see Bill’s ball roll up to the pin and stop about 5 cm short!

Needless to say he tapped it in for a 2 o’ 4! Well done Bill. And welcome back.

Looking forward to some normal golf next week.

Good golfing,

Peter
