Seniors' Opens May 2020



Due to the unprecedented situation in which we find ourselves, it is almost certain that most, if not all, Seniors' Opens for May will be cancelled. 

Please check with the Club before entering, or travelling to any Seniors' Open. Most Clubs will have a refund policy in these difficult times, but please be patient as they try to cope with the situation.

Stay safe, follow the instructions from the health authorities, which is, basically, to stay at home, especially for those golfers who are 70 or over.
