Welcome to the Senior Section of Minchinhampton Old Course
Minchinhampton Old Course GC has a thriving Seniors Section with some 120 members ranging in age from 55 to over 80 and handicaps from 5 to 28.
We have an extensive and varied diary of events throughout the year, although the most important aspect is playing social golf in a spirit of camaraderie and enjoyment. Events during the year, our committee organise include a Seniors Open, Am/Am, Charity day and various Away Days, fixtures with our Ladies Section and a Christmas Lunch for us to enjoy.
On Tuesday mornings the Seniors play a “friendly” roll-up Stableford. New members are most welcome, so turn up on the First Tee from 8 o’clock and play in a three or four ball with whoever is there (a great relaxed way to meet the other Seniors).
Thursday morning is our competition day. We play handicap qualifying Medal and Stableford rounds roughly fortnightly, interspersed with 'fun' and team events such as Texas scrambles, Greensomes, and Bowmaker competitions, etc., which allow us to demonstrate our (we hope) reducing handicaps.
In addition the Seniors Section Team play many friendly matches during the Spring/Summer against other clubs. All Seniors are eligible to play. These events involve a round of golf, a dinner and some dubious jokes by the captains. We find it’s a great way to play on other clubs’ courses, enjoy their club facilities and make new friends.
With an active and experienced committee, friendly and supportive Seniors’ membership you can be sure of enjoying a game of golf with people of your own age, in an atmosphere of respect and friendship.
New potential Senior Section members over the age of 55 (and of course existing club members who have matured to this age) are most welcome to join the Seniors Section. Please speak to the Seniors’ Secretary.
