Firstly, I give a warm welcome to all our Members to the 2019 season. Having been a member of the senior golfers for only 3years I feel privileged and proud to be asked by our previous captain Peter Joynes to be captain for season 2019 .In the last 3 years I have made lots of good friends through the golf. In our senior section we have a wide range of golfers from 55 to approximately 85 years old and very wide range of handicaps from 8 to 45. The point of this wide range of handicaps is that everyone who stands on the 1st tee has a chance to go on and win on the day and that they do. 16 different players won last year from all ages and all handicaps. Anyone who fancies joining our seniors has a wide range of competitions throughout the season (about 20) plus a friendly league of golf playing 7 other local golf clubs on a home and away basis. We also have an away day – this year it is at Barnard Castle – plus weekly sweeps. All our Sweeps and Competitions are played from the yellow tees and full details are on display on the Seniors’ Notice Board in the main entrance to our Club. There is also a £5 annual voluntary social contribution which provides an ‘All Day Breakfast’ after two of our summer competitions and a subsidy towards our Christmas Lunch. South Moor golf course is one of the best courses in the northeast summer and winter we have a very good professional shop at the club and a very good bar and lounge with brilliant food from Neil’s Bistro. So, come along to a warm and friendly golf club and enjoy yourself. If you would like to be involved in the Senior Section (qualifying age 55), please contact me: – Thank you.
