Once each month from March through October we run a qualifying competition. These are normally Stablefords, however in June and August we have Medal Competitions. Entry is easy, just roll-up on the first tee between 07:30 and 09:00 make up a group, on a first come basis and play the eighteen holes. If you wish to play later on the day, book a tee time and let John Wood know that you wish your score to be included. Enter your score on the computer and pay your £2 entry into the Seniors’ jar in the Clubhouse before 17:00. Most of the money will be shared between the first five places. The first of these qualifiers will be on Monday, 23rd March (assuming the second is open of course).
We hold six “Board” Competitions during the season. Entry sheets can be found upstairs on the “Seniors” Noticeboard. The draw will be made at least a week before the event. On the day, pay the entry fee (£5 including “2s”) and collect your card from the Pro-shop. Prizes for 1st, 2nd & 3rd which will be presented at one of the two Club Presentation evenings held in the Club House. The first of these Competitions, will be The Kenneth Williams Cup on Monday, 30th March.
This competition acts as a qualifier towards the Senior Knock-out, the Reg Woolley Trophy. Ideally, there should be 31 qualifying places plus the previous year’s winner giving a competition with five rounds. However in recent years we have struggled to get this amount of entries and have consequently reduced the number of qualifiers and the number of rounds needed. Again this year the number of qualifiers will be reflected by the number of entries i.e.: less than 25 = 16, less than 12 = 8 qualifiers.
Running alongside the Eight Qualifiers and the Six Board Comps will be the Eclectic (best score on each hole during the Season) and the Order of Merit. If you would like to be considered for either or both of these, please add your name to the list on the Senior’s Noticeboard and pay the £2.50 fee for each to Derek Isaac or John Wood.
