The Seniors Section at Brighton & Hove is open to all club members aged 55 and over. We offer competitive and recreational golf and are pleased to welcome golfers of all abilities. We are essentially a social and jovial gathering of like-minded golfers.
We meet each week on Friday mornings from 8:30am and play whenever the course is open. The format is a roll-up stableford competition over nine holes with an entry fee of £2.00.
Additionally there are trophy competitions usually played over thirteen holes. These competitions include a summer and winter knockout in both singles and foursomes format.
An added benefit is the opportunity to play for the club in matches against other local clubs. There are currently home and away matches against the Seniors’ Section of nine golf clubs. The format is six teams playing Four Ball Better Ball. These matches are played in the morning and followed by lunch. The cost for players is limited to lunch and beverages. These matches are played with friendly good humour with the only prize being prestige and “bragging rights”. Currently we are also playing in a local Winter League with the same format. These matches are not followed by lunch.
We hold a Seniors Open in August which is always over-subscribed. There are prizes for the teams from other clubs and for the club members that participate. Social events include Senior Captain’s Day lunch, Gala Christmas Lunch, the invitation to the Ladies and a morning of free coffee and mince pies prior to Christmas.
There’s always something going on in the Seniors’ section!
