Knighton Heath Knockout

On 21st September the Seniors team played at Knighton Heath G.C. in the final of the prestigious Knighton Heath Trophy Plate and ran out winners by 5.5 to 4.5 against a Wareham Golf Club team where our players were giving away shots in virtually every match. We were blessed with good weather on a very good and fair course.

Congratulations to all concerned and our thanks to Knighton Heath for organising an excellent competition and hosting a very enjoyable finals day.

A special thank you to everyone that played in the earlier rounds, without whom we may not have made the final.

Important update regarding Tuesday competitions

From 1st November the Seniors will be changing the way the Two Divisions are calculated. Instead of a split at 18.4 Handicap the split will be made at 50/50 of the total field of the competition, which also reflects the way the prize money is split between the divisions.

This will have a marginal effect as most competitions are approximately 50/50 anyway. The reason for this change is to bring it in line with the way Golf Genius allocates players between divisions.

Seniors' Friendly Matches 2022
