Welcome to Crook Golf Club Seniors Section – this is a vibrant and lively section which presently has 40 plus members, with a wide age range from 55 up to 87, and all playing enjoyable but competitive golf.
The Seniors/Early Birds play every Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. We normally play 14 holes to accommodate all ages and have a sweep each day which costs a massive 50p.
The section has its own handicap system to ensure a competitive edge within the group.
We also have at least 4 or 5 full Medal competitions, playing 18 holes off white tees to ensure the group has the opportunity of gaining 3 cards to retain their CONGU handicap.
We have two Opens each year, May and September, to encourage visitors to our club.
This section also organises a very good set of matches called exchange matches against other clubs’ seniors sections. This is not a league but has enjoyable home and away fixtures which are very competitive on the day using the match play format, followed by good conversation and a two course meal, these really are enjoyable trips. Clubs we visit include Whickham, Romanby, Seaham, Brancepeth, South Shields and others, usually comprising a series of 8 home and away matches.
In addition we have our summer Seniors Away day not travelling too far but enjoyable with lots of prizes for winners and raffles.
So you can see there is lots going on in the Early Bird/ Seniors section, if you would like to be part of this group and are 55 or over, you would be very welcome.
To get further information and just to have a chat about this section give us a call, we would like to hear from you.
