Seniors Section

On behalf of the Committee of the Seniors’ Section of Puckrup Hall Golf Club, welcome to our section.
We hope that you will enjoy our company and camaraderie and also hope you will be able to participate with us on a regular basis.
Our subscription of £5 runs from January to December in each year.
A copy of our Constitution is available if required, as is a copy of the Seniors Calendar for 2017. We have a Liability Insurance scheme in place which forms part of the £5 subscription. Again, further details may be obtained on request.

Seniors Competitions

There is a competition every week on a Monday, (or Tuesday after a Bank holiday). The fee for each competition is current £2 which goes towards the cost of prizes, the Christmas Lunch and other expenses. Each of your first twenty-one Monday competitions contribute £1 to your Christmas lunch.

The draw sheet for Monday/Tuesday mornings will be emailed to you on a Sunday evening; a copy on the notice board may be amended any time before Friday lunchtime. The Eclectic and knockout competitions are organised and run by the Competitions Secretary.

The Seniors Calendar shows all the competitions that run on Mondays plus other important dates such as the Seniors’ Open, the Seniors’ Pairs Open, Away-way days and Tours.
There are a number of other competitions that take place over the year. The entry forms for these are pinned to the Seniors’ notice board and reminders are emailed to you.

There are two competitions that run automatically. They are the Winter Eclectic (also known as Ivor’s Eclectic), and the ‘Last of the Summer Wine’ (LOTSW) competition which runs throughout the summer on Mondays. The winner of this competition has the best average Stableford score from a set number of rounds played during the period April 1st to the end of October. Currently entry to all these competitions is free.

Away-days and Tours

We have two away-days and two tours. The two away-days are organised by the Seniors captain and are subsidised. The entry fee is usually around £30. The two tours are not subsidised.
The tour to France takes place each May.

Other Golfing Days

Groups of seniors have tee times booked on Wednesday and Friday mornings. The first of these go off at just after 8:00 am throughout the year. There is no need to book, simply turn up. Generally, the order of play is decided by the toss of golf balls. Wednesday is less formal than Friday. On Friday everybody puts £1 in the pot and play in a Stableford competition. Numbers at present: on Wednesdays 6-10 usually turn up, whereas on Fridays we often see a few more, perhaps 12-16 players. There is a group that goes out at around 10am on most Wednesdays and Fridays. That later group tends to be smaller in number and more fluid. Numbers at present for the later group on both days is around 5-6.

Matches against other clubs

We currently play twenty matches in the summer months against other clubs on a friendly basis. The dates are shown on our calendar. If you would like to play in any of these you will be most welcome. Matches are arranged in four ball better-ball format. The formal meal afterwards is a chance to relax with new friends. There is an additional charge for these matches to cover the cost of the meal and match fees, regardless of whether the fixture is home or away. Team members will receive a free Seniors tie.

The Pro Shop

We actively encourage our members to use the facilities and expertise offered by our Director of Golf. Prices in the shop are very competitive and help to maintain the club’s growing reputation. Vouchers from the shop are used as prizes wherever possible in our competitions and raffles.
