Seniors

Canwick Park Seniors Golf

We have a thriving Seniors’ section within the golf club, open to all club members aged 55 years and over – current membership is approximately 80 seniors.

An annual fee of £5 is required for membership which is used to defray the costs of events such as ‘Days Out’ visits to other clubs for golf and meals, the Seniors’ Annual Dinner held in December, and the purchase and engraving of competition trophies.

We are a very active  section and will hold 43 separate competitive events between April 1st and September 24th.  2018.

Seniors Matches

We seniors play a number of home and away matches during the spring/summer with other clubs in the county. These take the form of 4-ball match-play team games. Obviously, each team wishes to win but these are essentially friendly, social meetings where we play the game we love and afterwards gather for drinks and a meal. Any Senior can play – a notice is posted for each match, those wishing to play my enter their name – first come first served.

Our match calendar for 2018 is tabled below:

Seniors Competition Schedule

We also enjoy a busy season of competitions – medals, stablefords, knockouts and others. There are plenty of qualifying games scheduled and others. Entry for each competition is £2 per player, half of which is allocated to prize money, and half supplements the purchase of trophies for winners.

We also schedule charity games when all contributions are voluntary and passed on to nominated charities. During the winter months we play a number of less traditional non-qualifier competitions.

A list of summer season competitions is given in the following table.

Roll-Up Golf

On a less formal note all Seniors Golf members are most welcome to join in our “roll up and play” sessions held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday Mornings throughout the year. This is a great way for members to get to meet others and enjoy a morning of golf.  Don’t be late though; its “balls in the hat” by 07:45 and finish in time for lunch!
