For all seniors members new and old here are some words from Senior’s Chairman John Palfreyman
Our seniors section welcomes all members of the Golf Club aged 60 or over. We are currently running at around 90+ members. A subscription of £10 per annum entitles the member to play in our 3 seasonal Trophy Competition with prizes, (no entry fee), invitation to our Away day which is subsidised and the Christmas Lunch, also subsidised, where we have a free raffle & quiz.
‘Members have the opportunity to represent the Club in the Northumberland Seniors League in which 13 Clubs participate. Each team provides 6 pairs to play in the match which, whilst competitive , is played in good spirit with good camaraderie between Teams. The meals after play are informal, although some clubs may request Jacket & Tie
We also have 3 friendly matches a year on a home & away basis.
All the above matches cost the member an additional £5.00 per match in 2023, which covers the golf, pre match coffee & a two course meal with coffee after play. We try to ensure that all volunteers get to play at least 1 match during the season. All our home matches tend to be on Tuesdays with a 12.30 start and the meal finishes by 18.45/19.00
The Seniors are pleased to announce that LYNAS ENGINEERS have agreed to sponsor the section for next year 2023.
Update for 2023
There is a new competition which will create a seniors champion to be played over 2 nominated Thursday strokeplay competitions.
The winner will win the LYNAS SENIORS CLUB CHAMPION TROPHY.
