WELCOME TO OUR GENTS SENIOR SECTION
Dave Allum, Gents Senior Section Organiser writes. . .
The current annual fixture list can be viewed on the Seniors Notice Board in
the clubhouse, and in the 2022 fixture booklet and in the fixture list on this web site.
The Gents Senior Section is open to ALL gentlemen golfers of Mickleover Golf
Club aged 55 or over, offering the opportunity to enjoy and socialise with
golfers of a similar age, whilst playing many premier courses within our area.
Team matches are played free of green fee charges, courtesy of the clubs
involved. There is no subscription or waiting list to join and any new members will be given a warm welcome. Lite members will use their points as outlined in their membership T's & C's.
Throughout the season we play against numerous clubs in the Derbyshire,
Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Staffordshire and the West Midlands region, each on home and away basis.
Each match will be posted separately with an invite by e-mail to play. If you wish to be included in the circulation please let me know the Senior Section Organiser (David Allum by e-mail). It will be followed (a couple of weeks later) with a team sheet notification. Matches are played usually with teams of 12 members. This offers everyone a good chance of election on a regular basis. It is hoped that participating team members will agree to play the reciprocal match, whether home or away.
Both teams usually meet in the respective clubhouse half an hour before the
first match tee-off to enjoy morning coffee and meet the opposition.
Please turn up wearing team colours of Navy Blue jumper (Navy Blue was new in 2018 however existing seniors may continue with the previous Sky Blue pullover until it is phased out) and white polo shirt, preferably badged with the Mickleover Golf Club logo and will be available from our Club Professional Tim Coxon.
Following the match we join together in the clubhouse for a meal. Meals are
reasonably priced and are always value for money; the home team members
generally pay for drinks! The after-match dress code is smart-casual, change of clothes after the match.
If you would like more information please check the Seniors Notice Board, or
contact me direct.
