Seniors vs Caister Away
Our last friendly of the season was at Caister. It was a good day weather wise and we had some great match ups. The scores were comoing in and eventually it all rested on the last match. David Juler and Mick Rust came in with a half so the match ended up a very friendly 4-4. We really have some good friends at Caister. The course was good and the food excellent as always. Many thanks to all the players who supported the seniors during the year, it really was a good year.

Allan Schoenherr takes over as Senior Captain in 2019. His Vice- Captain is Alex Knapton. We are looking forward to continuing the support for the senior section.
We look forward to plenty of support from all the seniors and hope you all have a great year, whether playing in the team or just your regular games during the week.
Located at Caldecott Hall Fritton we have a good senior section and have many friendlies and competitions during the year.
There are several self run roll up groups who meet up regularly during the week so there should be a chance for every senior to play competitive golf and enjoy other company. New additions always welcomed by the seniors who run them. There is an 8 o'clock group and an 11 o'clock group, for example, on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays.
The course is very rarely closed and drains so well that even after a good spell of rain is still playable.
