The Seniors Section is one of the golf club’s constitutional sections. It is known as “The Willmotts” in honour of Charles Willmott who helped to construct the course and served as club professional from 1914-1956. His bust is displayed in the foyer.
Involvement in the Seniors Section’s competitions and events is open to all male club members of age 55 years and over.
Roll Ups take place every Monday and Thursday morning for Casual/Social golf, normally arriving before 08.00.
Medal and Stableford competitions are held between March and October - all qualifying for handicap adjustment. All these events are played off the yellow tees.
Home and Away matches are played against other prestigious clubs and mixed competitions with, and against, The Ladies. An annual match is played against the Club.
There are many other non-qualifying competitions held throughout the year, including three knock-out competitions – singles and pairs in the summer, pairs in the winter.
A golf mini-break for Willmotts and Ladies is held each year at a hotel of the Captain’s choice.
All events and competitions are available on the club’s web site (Intelligent Golf).
As well as golf, the Seniors Section promotes social events, such as a Ladies Night Dinner & Dance and makes donations to charities.
As required by the Club’s Constitution, The Seniors’ Committee consists of: The Captain, Vice-Captain, Hon Secretary and Hon Treasurer plus immediate past Captain and one new elected member (Vice-Captain designate for the following year).
The Seniors Section is self-supporting from entry fees, maintains its own audited accounts and presents an Income and Expenditure Account at the Willmotts AGM.
A Seniors’ AGM is held each year when members can formally contribute and propose new people for the Treasurer and Secretary roles.
There is a small entrance fee for all competitions and there are set meals after some events.
Most events have prizes for individuals and, in some cases, for teams.
