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, or those who pretend to be! You start on 2 less than your GA handicap, and generally gain or lose shots according to our own complicated handicapping system. Results are texted to players providing a mobile phone number on Monday afternoon and also published here on the website.
It was run from 1988 until 2014 under the stewardship of “youngster” Ian “Tricky” Trickett, pictured above on the left of the photo. Tricky still plays regularly off a very respectable handicap, and invariably comes in with a good score. The competition has changed marginally since 1988, but the general format remains the same. The maximum handicap is 50, we have preferred lies and there are no annual fees. All comers are welcome.
A feature of the competition is the annual “Christmas Hams Day”, where every regular player receives a substantial ham, along with the Christmas luncheon. Weekly prizes are awarded through the Pro Shop.
Bookings are required through the Club bookings portal, and you are generally always assured of a game. Tee off is at 7:30 am every Monday (and 7:00 am during Summer), so why don’t you come and join us. Further information can be sought from Peter Ullman on 0427 851 026.
