Fulford Heath Golf Club

The Seniors Section

The 2018 Seniors Captain & Vice Captain of our Club Mr Rod Hazlewood

 

The Seniors section in the Club is completely open to all members who are over the age of 55, even though many do not feel they are ‘Seniors’.

The section hold a number of mid-week stableford competitions over the summer, as well as a Senior Open and matches against other clubs. Over the past years these events have been very well attended and have often produced some excellent, competitive golf.

The Seniors Team play friendly matches against Clubs across the Midlands, playing some 26 games from March through to October, both on a home and away basis. These fixtures are always enjoyable and competitive, played in a friendly atmosphere and with very good company. This combined with some wonderful courses, and excellent food and drink after the game proves to be an amazing day out.

If you are interested in playing with the Seniors in any event you are always guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome and will never be short of like-minded playing partners.

The culmination of the Seniors’ season is the John Kynnersley Cup.  This is a board competition played for by those who have represented the club playing for the Seniors Team.  Traditionally the cup is played for as part of the Seniors Captain’s Away Day which was held at Stratford Oaks Golf Club this year.  29 members took part, 20 eligible to play for the Kynnersley Cup and 9 guests.

Everyone enjoyed a great day out playing on a course that was not too challenging but very enjoyable with a very welcoming atmosphere.  The fast running fairways and receptive greens led to some great scores both in the main cup and guest competitions.

The winner of the Kynnersley Cup with a fantastic 46 points was Andy Harris, closely followed in second by Keith French with 45 points and Jim Elias in third place with 42 points.  The team prize was awarded to Andy Harris, Mike Timms, Rod Hazlewood and Malcolm Robbins.

The winner of the guest prize with 43 points was Dusty Rhodes, with Seamus O’Donnell in second place with 38 points and John Winspur in third with 37 points.  The team prize was won by Dusty Rhodes, Ian Jones and John Winspur.
