The following competitions are run for male members of the club age 55 and over.
Bishops Chalice – This is the major Club Trophy for Seniors. It consists of monthly Stablefords from October to April each of which counts as a “qualifying competition” for handicap purposes.
Seniors Championship – In 2015 we had the inaugural Seniors Championship, run in conjunction with the Club Championship in late July and is now an annual event. This year’s Senior Club Championship will be held on Sunday 10th September 2017. Entries will be available via normal club competitions via the Pro Shop.
Veterans’ Trophy – The club has a Veteran’s Trophy for which members aged 65+ can compete with the winner recorded on an Honours Board in the club house. There is also a section within that competition for members aged 60 – 64, with a separate trophy, but no Honours Board. This year’s Veteran’s Trophy is on Monday 4th September 2017 and is organised from the office as it is a club competition.
Inter-club Veterans’ Trophy – An Inter-club Veterans Trophy, for players aged 60+, has been held annually since 1985 with 11 teams participating and last year was held at Felixstowe Ferry on Tuesday 19th July 2016. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday 18th July 2017 at Hintlesham Golf Club, but in the name of Waldringfield Golf Club who are unable to host due to uncertainty over the availability of their course.
Seniors Invitation Day – This is a chance to invite a friend to enjoy the delights of our Course. This year’s competition will be combined with the Club’s Invitation Day and will be open to all mens players within the club. It will be held on Tuesday 12th September 2017.
