Seniors section CLUB MATCHES
All standard of golfers are welcome to play in our matches against local clubs, these are both home and away and a very cheap way of playing local courses. There are 18 matches played from late February to October. Cost is approx £13 for golf and a 2 course meal, great value. We are delighted these matches were well supported in 2018 and have proved so successful we are often oversubscribed. Fear not, there is a carefully worked selection process so everyone will play if you wish to join us. See the Senior's Notice Board.
We hold 18 cup competitions, normally played on a Thursday. Two Seniors Open Competitions (Cyril Lane and Dennis Bray) are played in May and June, these attract golfers from across the County and provide our main section funding.
This year's Senior's Fun Away Weekend was at Bowood Golf Club (30 Jun/1 July 19) and we plan to return again next year around the same weekend in the year.
The Men's Club Competitions are normally played on a Sunday morning with Club Monthly Medal and Stableford competitions on alternative Wednesdays from April through to October. (No 4-balls to be played between 1100 and 1300 on these Wednesdays to avoid slow play on these popular days). A weekly Stableford roll up competition is now run on a Friday. For Wednesday and Friday competitions arrange your own playing partners and register in the Pro Shop. Sunday competitions are drawn start times, made on a Friday, the list normally comes down on a Thursday see the Main notice board. Please be aware of slow play and we ask you to follow the guidance on the Rules of Golf.
Held in the Academy on a Friday at 1000 and is open to anyone. Cost £6. It is run by Francis Sanderson who recently was the Strength and Conditioning Coach with Cornwall Pirates. These sessions have proved very popular and are growing. Just turn up and join in, you are most welcome.
5 Ball play is not permitted under any circumstances at any time on the course.
We offer you a cordial invitation to join in and support your Senior's Section, everyone is welcom.
