Seniors Section



Dear Members


On behalf of the Seniors Section of Cherwell Edge Golf Club, I would like to welcome all existing and new members to the new Golfing year.


Seniors are classed as over 55 years old on the 1st April.


Our dedicated competition day is a Wednesday and there is usually something different every week - please see the Club Diary for details - where we often have both 18 and 9 hole competitions running alongside each other -  some mixed events, some drawn events, and some both mixed and drawn!


This year we are running 3 separate Eclectics throughout the summer season from 1st April until the last Order of Merit medal of the year, usually in early November.  These are split into age -related categories, one for 55 to 69 year olds, and the other two for those 70 and above.  The scores will be automatically compiled from each relevant qualifying Seniors competition you play in, and we will sort your best score on each hole and deduct half your handicap to calculate your final net score – detailed terms to be provided at the start of the year.


Also on Monday and Friday there are informal roll up competitions run by some of our senior members (meet up in the club no later than 9am) which gives you an opportunity to meet and play with existing members and who can assist with any questions you may have should you be unable to collar a member of the Seniors Committee!


It is recommended that you arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your tee time for our section competitions to avoid congestion on the 1st tee, although if you are like me and you like to be early you can always get a coffee and a bacon sandwich in the club served by Jason and his friendly staff before your round.


We also run Inter-club matches throughout the season against local clubs’ seniors, and if you would like to put your name down for these, the sign-up sheet can be found on the seniors notice board in the men’s changing room. 


Our big social event each year is the Seniors Christmas Dinner where we also welcome partners.  As well as being a great annual get together, we also hand out prizes to our Monthly Medal winners and the Order of Merit Trophy to the overall winner.


Once again welcome to the new season. Enjoy your golf and let’s start praying for the rain to stop!
