Senior Golf

Girton Golf Club has a thriving and very popular Seniors Section. We welcome members whatever their standard and offer a friendly and inclusive round of golf to anyone over 55 who wants to enjoy themselves on, and off, the golf course.

Our match and competition activities carry a charge to cover costs, but there is no annual subscription.

Primary activities centre around a “roll-up” held on Tuesday and Thursday mornings throughout the year, when we play various formats in 3- or 4-ball groups. There are about 60 members associated with the Seniors, but roll-up attendance is usually between 20 & 30. To take part all that’s necessary is to be in the Club Bar at 7.30am to take part in the draw for partners.

Once a month throughout the summer there is a club-handicap qualifier round played off yellow tees.

During the year we stage 10 trophy competitions, including singles and doubles knockouts and a 10-card Eclectic. We also organise two Away days to other courses in the county, comprising a morning match followed by lunch.

During the summer months we play 14 other local clubs, home and away. Again comprising a morning match followed by lunch. Team selection is not solely based on ability, but instead attempts to ensure that all get at least a game or two during the season.

For information on all activities keep an eye on the Seniors’ notice board in the gents’ changing room.

A Message from the Senior's Captain

Malcolm took up golf when he retired in 2003 and has been a member at Girton since 2007, having previously played at the now defunct Longstanton Golf Club for 3 years.

Malcolm’s introduction to Girton was initiated by turning up at the Seniors’ weekly roll-ups, and the friendships and camaraderie of that group has been the mainstay of his golf ever since.

Outside of golf Malcolm does plenty of singing with a local Barbershop Chorus and two Choirs, and rushes around seeing his 12 grandchildren.
