Seniors Club Classic 

The National Seniors Club Classic is a team event. Four players from either side play head-to-head matchplay. Highest handicappers play first (maximum allowable 18). In the event of the match being halved at 2-2 the two lowest handicap players continue on a sudden-death play-off. The winning team then goes through to the next round. First round losers are entered into a Plate tournament, so everyone gets at least two games.

We try to alternate home/away fixtures, to keep it as fair as possible, and visiting players each receive one extra courtesy stroke - this goes a little way to levelling up the ratio of home/away victories. This courtesy stroke might take a visiting player up to a handicap of 19 - this is correct.


Courtesy of the course should be given to visiting players (though if that is not possible, as might happen at a proprietory Club) we have a rule whereby the visitors' green fees are shared with the home players - see the Rules page. Each round has a window of about seven weeks to arrange and play the match. Each team can nominate up to seven players in each season.

2018 Tournament - And the Winners are . . . 


In the semi-finals the two Walsall teams managed to stay apart, setting up the possibility of an all-Walsall final - if they both won, of course. Monday dawned drab and wet, if it dawned at all, with a stiff breeze, making conditions difficult for all players. Walsall A took on Bridport & W Dorset and the match see-sawed back and forth until it became apparent that a play-off would be needed. 

Bridport & W Dorset stole it on the first play-off hole.

In the other semi-final Walsall B took on Langdon Hills B and came out ahead by 3-1.

The scene was set for Tuesday's final but the weather again let us down. Though unseasonably warm and still there was an early-morning fog that refused to lift totally until very late in the afternoon - by which time we'd all gone home. Walsall B won by three-and-a-half to a half.

Congratulations to Walsall B - our 20th anniversary Champions.



















In the Plate semi-final Ufford Park, in their third successive appearance in the finals, played Ashford, here for the first time, and experience showed with Offers Park running out 3-1 winners. Forest Hills, meanwhile, had a semi-final bye as Filey had to pull out.

This set up a final between Ufford Park and Forest Hills, which Forest Hills won by 4-0. 

Congratulations to Plate winners, Forest Hills.
