Senior Section

 

Welcome to the Senior Section

The 2021 Senior Section Captain is Terry Cotton. The seniors meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning and (when Covid Restrictions allow) have a comprehensive series of home and away friendly matches with many of the local clubs. The course re-opened on March 29th but with the club house closed,  matches with other clubs have been cancelled. The club Tiger Trophy, Medal competitions, and other special club events  have now re-commenced. More details are shown on the 'Latest News' panel below together with other information on Senior Events over the next period. Regular Tuesday and Thursday Block Bookings will be reserved for groups of players from 8:30 am to 9:30 am. The tee time allocations for roll up events will be done by a draw at 8:15 am on the day and for other special events groups will be pre-drawn a few days prior to the event and posted on this page and on the Folke Senior WhatsApp group. You can indicate your intention to play in these special  events by contacting Terry via the Entry Request at the bottom of this page or by email, phone or WhatsApp. You will need to check-in on the WHS Terminal or via the Howdidido App on your mobile prior to playing and enter your score on completion of the round.
