Welcome to The City of Newcastle Golf Club Senior Section
The Seniors Section is open to all men who are City of Newcastle Golf Club members and are over 60 years old. In 2021 the annual subscription was £10 for the year, and membership had increased to 96 paying members.
There are four main competitions run by the Seniors Section, which are free to enter and there are prizes, trophies and food in the clubhouse after the round of golf:
May – Joe Farley Trophy (stableford)
June – Bill Elder (stableford)
September – Seniors Championship (gross and nett stroke-play)
December – Seniors Xmas Competition (stableford)
The Seniors Section also arranges an Away-day to a local golf club which is a fun day out and is always popular with members. It also assists in the running of the Seniors Open held each year by the City of Newcastle Golf Club, where the raffle proves a good source of income for the Section funds.
In addition the Seniors Section runs a team in the Northumberland Seniors Golf League (12 matches a year).
Thursdays was traditionally a day when section members would play informal matches with each other. In 2020 the City Club introduced a Seniors Stableford Competion which is played each Thursday, and for a nominal entry fee of £1 any City Club member over 60 are encouraged to play (not exclusive to Seniors Section members). This has proved to be a good way of ensuring that players keep their World Handicaps up to date.
Subject to the continued easing of Covid restrictions the Seniors Section Committee is hoping to organise a Social evening in November 2021.
