BARNARD CASTLE SENIORS is a fast-growing section, now boasting nearly 60 over-55s enjoying a great programme of matches, competitions and social golf.
On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays the Seniors turn out every week; Monday is the main Seniors day where we regularly have 30 plus playing in a competition. On the first Monday in every month there is a trophy competition. There are informal “roll-ups” on Wednesdays and Fridays. Stableford competitions are the most popular format, but Medals, Bogey competitions, Texas Scrambles, etc., all play their part.
The free-spirited ethos of the Seniors means that there is a draw for partners for every game; no one knows who their playing partner will be before they attend any Seniors occasion. We consider that an important component of our section.
The matches give an opportunity to play some of the best courses in the North East for just the price of a post-match meal, and our home games offer a chance to welcome visitors to our delightful course. Team-picking is designed to give all our members an equal chance to take part.
There are 2 very popular Barnard Castle Seniors’ Opens, one in May, one in August, where the Section, with support from the Club, turns out in force to ensure a great day out for all. There is also an away-day and a Christmas Dinner Competition with, of course, Christmas Dinner to follow.
