Senior Golf News

Wow, it seems like forever since we’ve been able to play golf. And we all know the reason behind the delay and understand why we have had to wait. But we’re back!

One positive result from the wait is that the golf course has been maintained in excellent condition and it’s just great to be out in the fresh air playing the game that we love, even under the current restrictions.

But we’re all smart people, and we wear masks when necessary and we social distance. Stephen Bardwick, our new Head Pro is following all of the protocols to the letter.  It’s all good!

The Senior Men’s League play began June 8 with an addition to previous years competitions. Now, in addition to winning prizes for individual play, players have been assigned to a team. The three lowest net scores from each team will be added together each week and the team with the lowest total receives 10 points toward the year-end final tournament.
