Stoke Rochford Golf Club have an established and very popular men’s seniors section providing year long weekday golf for over 55 year olds. About 100 members participate in seniors golf to a larger or lesser extent at some time during each year. Seniors hold their AGM in January and elect their Captain and committee which organise the section.
Annually the seniors section play up to forty inter club matches against quality opponents. Additionally during the summer, they play individual competitions, charity events together with singles and pairs knockout competitions.
On 9th September 2013 Stoke Seniors played their 800th inter club match at Spalding , the team on that day are pictured below.
Each Wednesday during the winter months up to sixty seniors meet to play a variety of team and novelty golf competitions. The seniors pairs winter league is keenly contested.
There is no subscription, no joining fee and in reality members do not have to ‘join’ the section, providing they are members of the club and over 55 years old they can join in as and when they wish. Many newcomers joining the section as new club members, recently retired or just having moved to the area have found the section a wonderful way to make new friends and guarantee regular weekday golf. Joining the section is a first class means of quickly becoming integrated into the club.
All seniors activities are well advertised on the seniors notice board in the gents locker room and a regularly updated website devoted to Stoke Rochford Seniors is available by following the link to www.stokeseniors.co.uk
