Kenilworth: Course open.
Tuesday 11th September 2018
The Seniors section at Kenilworth includes all male members who are aged 55 or over. There are a variety of organised events throughout the whole year in which seniors can take part. The Seniors Notice Board is opposite the ladies locker room door and will provide information for forthcoming events and competitions.
Throughout the summer there are monthly medal or stableford competitions on the first or second Monday of the month. These are qualifying competitions played from the medal tees enabling Seniors to maintain an active handicap. They lead up to the Seniors’ Major “The Seniors Challenge Cup” in mid September.
Through the summer months the singles match play knockout competition takes place - sign up is available late March and into April for those who wish to enter the competition.
A variety of additional events are added through the summer months with competitions such as 3 ball yellow ball alliances and pairs better ball. Watch the notice board for information about upcoming competitions.
As well as the internal competitions the Seniors play matches against other local clubs. Usually these are played in teams of 12 in pairs 4BBB match play format with lunch to follow. For those who wish to play in such matches invitations to play are put on the Seniors' noticeboard a few weeks before each match. All seniors are welcome to join in these matches.
The Seniors' year culminates with the presentation dinner - held on a Friday evening in late October - at which seniors and wives get together for a convivial social evening during which trophies for the year are presented.
This is followed - usually the following Thursday at 4 pm - with the Seniors AGM at which the year is reviewed and elections are held for the committee for the next year.
During the winter the Seniors compete for the Eric Aston Trophy. This takes place every Monday throughout the winter months with the best six scores contributing to each competitor's total. There is a winter league pairs match play competition for which the initial stage takes the form of a set of mini-leagues with the league winners going through to the knock-out stages.
Also during the winter a number of Texas Scramble competitions are organized with the ladies section.
In addition to the organised competitions and matches “chuck-ins” abound. There are opportunities for social golf most weekdays on a “just turn up and play” basis with drinks or lunch in the clubhouse to follow. See the chuck-ins list in the information drop-down menu (available on the members web site) for days and times. Newcomers are always welcome - this is a great way to meet other members.
