The Seniors Section (EGGS)
The Southmoor seniors section was formed from a very well known and respected society called “The Eggs”. EGGS stands for Elderly Gentleman’s Golf Society. They play regularly and have many outings to other clubs. If you enjoy the social and fun side of golf then the EGGS is for you; if you qualify with age! The Seniors Section runs a full programme of events. These include organised Competitions, Team Matches home and away, Social Sweeps and Away Days. The main regular events include; –
- Seniors Competitions. These are normally held on Thursdays commencing at 9.30 a.m. They are played off the Yellow Tees and most are recognised for active handicap purposes. To enter these regular competitions the entry forms and resulting draws are posted on the Seniors Notice Board in the main entrance to the Clubhouse.
- Seniors Team Matches can also be found on the Notice Board. We play a 12 man team against seven local golf Clubs in County Durham on a social basis both home and away followed by a two course meal and is open to all of our senior members. Again entry sheets are posted on the seniors notice board.
- An Informal Sweep is held normally on a Tuesday at 9.00 a.m. (And on Thursdays in the Winter Season). There are variations so please check the Diary for all events.
- South Moor Golf Club also run three Senior Open Competitions. For details – please contact the Senior Secretary Chris Moxham Tel: 0191 416 0827 E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org (Applications are available from www.golfempire.co.uk if preferred).
