Welcome to the Senior Section

The 2021 Senior Section Captain is Terry Cotton. The seniors meet every Tuesday and Thursday morning and 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 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 below or by email, phone or WhatsApp. You will need to check-in on the Terminal or via the Howdidido App on your mobile prior to playing and enter your score on completion of the round.

August  Tiger Trophy

The fourth round of the 2021 Tiger Trophy commenced in the morning mist on Tuesday 3rd August but overall the conditions and setting were very good and some high scores were to be expected. Twenty five club members took part - the largest field of the year - and with no clear leader on the current Order of Merit, the competitions remains very tight. When the scores were entered, the expectations were proven correct with 7 players over 36 points and the winner, with 43 points , was Stuart Richards. In second place was Mark Maquire with 42, and Jim Wyllie was third with 39. We now have 5 joint leaders on the OOM all with 3 points (See the Results page for details) so the competition is still wide open.
