Firstly, I would like to say it's a privilege and honour to represent Willesley Park Golf Club in any capacity and especially as Senior's Captain for 2018.
An important change from November 1st 2017 is that age for membership of the seniors has now been reduced from 60 to 55 years. I would like to extend a warm welcome to anyone in that age group who may now wish to join the Seniors Section.
We are looking forward to the first competition, the Xmas Pairs Draw on Friday 8th December. The cost is £7.00 for soup, sandwiches and a mince pie plus prizes with a Xmas theme for the first, second and third team plus closest to the pin on the 4 par 3’s.
In 2018 there will be twenty matches played on either Mondays or Wednesdays. Would anyone interested in playing in theses matches please put your name and contact details on the list on the senior’s notice board. All these matches are played in a relaxed way with plenty of banter but of course competitively. They are always remembered for the good company enjoyed and new friends made, as much as the result.
During the year there is a Foursomes Knockout and ending the year the Seniors Championship in October.
There are two Open Competitions entitled "Your age is our concern” and "The Senior Silver Fox” held in June and August respectively.
New for this year will be the Seniors Exchange Day with Worksop GC on Monday July 2nd.
I look forward to continued support for the matches and competitions to come and if you want to join the Seniors Section please contact myself or my Seniors Vice-Captain, Richard Allen.
