As you would expect from competitive golf, there is an annual Order of Merit that results in a leaderboard which is used to select UK Senior & Super Senior teams to play against 22 other European countries. Those eligible for selection to play in in the European Seniors Championships in Portugal next year can be seen by clicking on SCRATCH OoM or HANDICAP OoM.
If you would like to experience the camaraderie, the competitive spirit or the calibre of the venues we visit, then why not simply come along to one of the clubs featured above and have a chat with our National Secretary.
Or, if we have sold you on the idea already, you could go straight to an application form now!
In the beginning ...
During the years prior to 2000 a number of prominent Senior Golfers in England and Wales had been working toward the formation of organised golf for golfers over the age of 55 years. In November 2000, at a meeting at Trevose Golf Club, it was decided, by about forty golfers who were participating in an unofficial inter-regional match, to form an Association to provide this form of golf under the proposed banner of the English Senior Golf Association.
Four of the main protagonists in the initial stages of the proposals were
Donald Holmes of Parkstone GC
Bryan Evans of Littlestone GC
John Loader of Beau Desert GC
Grahame Yule of Royal Lytham & St Annes GC
and these four Senior Golfers encouraged interest in their various regions in England.
There are 7 Regional Championships which culminate in a National Final at Trevose Golf Club in November each year. Members can enter as many events as they wish. Prior to the National Final the Inter-Regional Foursomes are held on the preceding three days.
