My name is Barry Newson, and I am extremely proud to have been given the opportunity to hold the position of Worlebury Golf Club Seniors Captain for 2017. I have greatly enjoyed being a member here since 1985.
We have a really friendly Club and provide a warm welcome to all visitors and new members throughout the whole club, as well as both the Ladies and Seniors sections.
Our course is not long, or hilly and as such is easy walking for us older players, but it is a true test of golf for all ages. With tight, tree lined fairways requiring accuracy from tee to green.
Social and competitive golf is catered for within the Seniors section in addition to the main Club events.
There are regular Stableford and Medal competitions throughout the year, with a few “fun” team competitions. These are all mainly played on a Monday, which is regarded to be “Seniors Day”.
However, if you should not wish to play these competitions it is always possible to pick up a game in one of the regular “roll up” groups that play on other days of the week.
In addition we have a full calendar of Social Matches against other local Clubs, throughout most of the year. Players of all abilities are welcome, and indeed encouraged, to join in these matches. It is a good way to experience playing other courses and to meet new people.
We also hold two Seniors Open competitions annually, in June & September, and would be pleased to have you join us in these events.
Please come along and see the tremendous views that we have over the Bristol Channel into Wales and beyond. I’m sure you will enjoy the whole experience that is Worlebury Golf Club and our Seniors section.
