Seniors Competiton - Birks Haywood Betterball

Our Seniors section meet on a Tuesday and Thursday morning each week. It’s a sociable group of players aged 55 and above. It’s size has been increasing recenly with an influx of ‘younger blood’ from around the area.

Normally sociable fiddles are the order of the day, but throughout the year various Interclub friendlies are played plus there are a number of Club competitions. These range from single stablefords, pairs games, knockout comps plus 3 and 4 man competitons too.

Today was the betterball pairs Birks Haywood trophy, an 18 hole stableford played off 85% handicap. Pairs were randomly selected from two groups of lower and higher handicaps to make the set up as close as possible. The results showed that to be the case with all but one group making a level par score and just 4 points between the top 8 pairings.
