Seniors' Opens 2021



2020 was to have been a bumper year for Seniors' Opens.  Sadly the virus got in the way and the majority ended up having to be cancelled.

Ironically, many GCs added dozens of new Members during the second half of 2020 and many of those were, and still are, Seniors. Thus we expect 2021 to be a very good year for Senior players looking for an Open event at a different Club.

We shall be listing Opens for 2021 as they are notified to us. If your Club is holding one (subject to any further restrictions, of course) get in touch now. Just email me (see the "Contact Us" page, listed on the left.

Please note that any catering listed may be subject to any restrictions in place at the time. The same goes for any further disruption to golf activities, though we hope not.

Seniors' Opens are listed in date order, starting on this page with any listings from January to the end of April. Further dates are shown on additional pages. Just check on the pages listed on the left and click on the appropriate one. Enjoy.
