For all seniors members new and old here are some words from Senior’s secretary John Palfreyman
Our seniors section welcomes all members of the Golf Club aged 60 or over. We are currently running at around 70+ 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 also have the opportunity to represent the Club in the Northumberland Seniors League in which 13 teams participate. Each team provides 6 pairs to play match play off 9/10th’s handicap. Whilst competitive, all matches are played in good spirit with good camaraderie between teams. The meals are informal, although a Jacket & Tie is required and speeches/jokes are kept to a minimum.
We also have 3 friendly matches a year on a home & away basis. All these matches cost the member an additional £3.00 per match, 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
We look forward to welcoming you to our section
