WELCOME TO THE SENIORS
The Seniors section is open to members aged 55 or over who enjoy playing friendly, yet competitive golf. We play a roll up every Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the year starting at 9.00am. Whilst everyone wants to win, the real attraction is the camaraderie and friendly banter, a key feature of our club.
A number of medal and Stableford handicap qualifying events are held throughout the season (click on the link ‘Seniors Competitions’ to find out more). We also play friendly home and away matches against 11 other clubs, several of which are played in the Manchester and District Seniors Golf League (click link ‘Seniors Matches’ below).
Level of ability isn’t important (our current handicaps range from single figures through to 28) and whilst most members are retired, our age range is from ‘youngsters’ in their fifties right up to ‘more senior gentlemen’ in their eighties. Whatever your age or ability you’ll be made extremely welcome. For more information contact any of the officials listed below or simply turn up for one of the roll ups.
We’re sure you will enjoy it.

MARCH 2018 – SENIORS AGM
The Seniors AGM finally took place on Thursday 8th March after twice being postponed because of atrocious weather.
22 matches were played against other clubs in 2017 of which 9 were won and 13 lost. In the league, despite not making the final this year, we were just two points adrift of the winners of our division. Many thanks to all the match organisers in 2017. Winners of the various seniors competitions were presented with their prizes, a full list of which can be found by visiting ‘Competitions’ in the Seniors section of the website.
Congratulations to the three senior players who achieved their first ever hole in one during 2017. These were Ken Lee, Chris Hall and Ged Armitt
Phil Smallman was re-elected as chair for 2018 along with Tom James as Secretary and Clive Garside as Treasurer whilst Bob Palmer was elected as Vice Chair.
The very successful Seniors mid week trip to North Wales, organised by Alan Blakeman, was a huge success and plans are already in place for a similar venture in September 2018. Sadly, we had to cancel the Seniors Open in September due to adverse weather which undermined the donation the Seniors give to the club annually. However, the annual Seniors Quad Am in May was very successful and once again extremely well supported.
The photo shows Trevor Jones being presented with ‘Player of the Year’ by the Chairman Phil Smallman, not only for his outstanding achievements as a player in 2017 but also for all the time and effort he has devoted throughout the year in supporting the club especially the green staff.
As a club we pride ourselves in the huge amount of voluntary work undertaken by so many of the Seniors for the benefit of the club. It’s what makes New Mills Golf Club so special!
