What is Senior’s 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.

Monday 11th December
We had a field of 44 contesting the annual hams day which was a little down on previous years but encouraging nonetheless.
The winner with a good score of 21 points was John Frame followed by Eric Callcut on 20.
The hams list went down a further 42 places ensuring that even us mediocre players scored a prize.
The presentation luncheon was well-attended, with a number of valuable, and not-so-valuable presentations being made.
Trevor was given well-deserved recognition for his 3 years running the comp, plus a voucher from the members.
Trevor also paid tribute to his hard-working team of volunteers who I am assured will continue their efforts next year.
The first competition under the new regime will be next Monday, but we will have a break on Christmas Day.
The first game for 2018 will be on 1st January.
Until next week,
The New Seniors Team.
