John Kemp

Seniors Captain 2017

Any member aged 55 or over can join the very active Seniors Section of the Club to enjoy social but competitive golf. To become a ‘Registered Senior’ and have the benefit of playing in intra and inter-club matches and to have other benefits, a new Senior only needs to pay a modest competition entry fee to play in their first competition. All they need to do is add their name to a competition invitation sheet pinned on the Seniors noticeboard, watch out for the starting time notice, and pay on the day.

The Section is managed by a Management Committee consisting of: 

  • Captain and Chairman - John Kemp 
  • Vice-Captain - Rick Hale 
  • Immediate Past Captain - Tony Burnside 
  • Honorary Secretary - Don Dunham 
  • Treasurer - Robert Seggie 
  • Competition Sub Committee Members - Ray Fage, Malcolm Pitcher and John Willson. 
An extensive programme of Monday competitions is organised with a trophy* presented to each of over twenty winners. (*See the Seniors trophies in the Stud Bar). The Club Diary lists all our competitions and matches which include:

  • A summer program of six monthly 'Medal' competitions, two played off yellow tees and four off white tees. 
  • A winter program of six monthly 'Stableford' competitions played off yellow tees. 
  • A 'Top Dogs' stableford pairs competition played over eight weeks in the winter. 
  • A 'Greensomes' and a 'Four Club Competition', plus a number of other trophy competitions including singles and pairs match play knockout competitions played on days of the week chosen by competing players. 
  • A 'Seniors Captain’s Day' competition, which is very popular. 
  • An 'Annual Seniors Guest Day' played on a Thursday in September.
  • Two 'Texas Scrambles' competitions. 
  • A 'Turkey Shoot' competition with meat vouchers as prizes. 
At least fifteen seniors medal and stableford competitions are played over a ‘qualified course’ when scorecards are submitted for handicap review (in accordance with CONGU Rules).  
In addition a programme of intra and inter club matches is organised which all registered Seniors are encouraged to participate in. These can also be seen in the club diary. They include: 
  • Three intra club matches and competitions versus the ladies plus an annual match versus the juniors 
  • Twenty-three inter club matches versus eleven local clubs.  Home matches are generally played on a Monday whilst the days of away matches vary.
