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.

PLEASE READ THE RULES VERY CAREFULLY AS VERY MANY TEAMS MAKE A MISTAKE IN THIS AREA AND THIS COULD LEAD TO DISQUALIFICATION IF YOU USE THE WRONG HANDICAP DIFFERENCES.

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. 

2020 entries open December 1st (and close March 31st).

 

And the Winners are . . . 

Semi-Finals

In a persistent drizzle some fine golf culminated in Leominster A beating Bridport & W Dorset B by 3-1; the other semi-final went into extra time when Gedney Hill B and Colchester shared the spoils 2-2. On the first extra hole Colchester edged into the final.

 

Plate Semi-Finals

Things were slightly more clear-cut in the Plate semi-finals with Foxhills beating Filey 4-0 and Forest Hills defeating West Essex by 3-1.

 

The Finals

And on Tuesday, the Plate final went its full distance before Forest Hills ran out Plate winners by 3-1. In the Final Leominster and Colchester shared a thrilling match 2-2, requiring extra time and on the first extra hole Colchester claimed the title. Congratulations to them, and all who took part this year.
