Newquay Golf Club has a very busy Seniors Section with approaching 100 senior men registered. Ages range from 55 (the minimum required to join) to over 90. Some are more active than others but there regular turn outs of 40+ for our competitions and a band of half a dozen or so over 80s who play 11 holes 2 or 3 times a week. The section is open to male club members over the age of 55.
Our main day for playing competitions is Monday with 12 main (qualifying) events throughout the year.
We also have matches, home and away, against 15 Cornish Clubs. These are normally 8 four ball better ball match play format, with the hosts providing hospitality after the match followed by a 2 course meal. This is a relatively cheap way of playing many other courses in the County (c £14).
Our main event of the year is the Seniors Charity Open. This year the Captain, Dave Phillips has nominated 2 charities to share the proceeds – Help For Heroes and Cornwall Air Ambulance Service.
Other informal gatherings / rollups take place usually on Wednesdays and Fridays, if no away matches.
