The Gents Senior Section at Lymm Golf Club provides a great opportunity for gentlemen over the age of 55 to play both friendly and competitive golf on a regular basis, and equally as important, to enjoy the friendly camaraderie that exists amongst the 60 or so of our current members.
There is of course, a wide variety of choice on how to enjoy your golf at our club. In addition to the numerous other formal and informal roll-ups and competitions organised by the club, the Gents Seniors Section organise several of their own roll-ups and competitions each week - throughout the year - which are as follows :-
They also organise a Winter Pairs knock-out competition, playing for the Andy Ward Trophy and a Summer Singles knock-out competition, playing for the Mike Smith Trophy.
In addition to the above, there are 16 Friendly Matches played each year against other clubs. This provides a great opportunity to play different courses in the area throughout the summer months. The clubs they currently play are Warrington, High Legh, Heyrose, Hale, Ringway, Davyhulme, Helsby and Northenden. 8 matches played at home (always slotted in on a Friday) and 8 matches away (various days of the week).
All these matches are supplemented throughout the year with various other competitions, such as a Texas Scramble, a 5 Club competition and of course, an annual Turkey Trot at the back end of the year.
If that is not enough, each August, the Group also organises two 18-hole Stableford Competitions; The Gordon Wood Trophy and The Peter Herrity Trophy and also arrange a team to play the Ladies Section for the Mitre Trophy around this time.
Finally, the Section also organises a Lymm GC Seniors Team that plays in the more competitive Tatton League against Antrobus, Styal, Heyrose, Birchwood and High Legh Golf Clubs. 6 very competitive matches!!
There is a nominal fee of £15 per annum to join the Friday League and friendly matches and the group is organised by an elected Gents Seniors Section committee.
They are a friendly group, who play golf the way it is meant to be played - with a competitive streak, but always with a smile on their faces. A very warm welcome is extended to all newcomers, who are of course encouraged to take part in all or any part of the events calendar that they may wish to.
Please do not hesitate to contact any of the organisers if you require further information or better still, roll up and get stuck in!.
