"Broadway Golf Club has a friendly, active and vibrant Seniors Section.
All Broadway club members over the age of 60 are eligible to join the Seniors Section, there is no official registration process and no charge.
There is competitive Seniors golf every Monday (except Bank Holidays) and the tee is reserved from 08.00 till 10.30. In addition there is a Senior’s roll up at around 8.00 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday though numbers are much reduced compared with Mondays when we have up to 60 players in the field.
Summer Competitions (April to end Sept.)
On Mondays through the summer we have 12 Qualifying competitions, in addition we have a Seniors Open in May and a Seniors Invitation in August and 2 away days in May and September.
On the free Mondays (there are about 8-10 of these) one of our players Nick Bury runs a Summer fiddle (individual stableford with a rolling element and an eclectic competition built in).
We also have 3 individual KO competitions and a 2 round pairs competition. We play 20 friendly matches (10 home and away) against other local clubs and a match against the Ladies section.
Winter Competitions (October to end March)
On a Monday we have mainly team competitions in a random draw (Texas Scramble, Best 2 out of 3, Greensomes etc) and we operate a handicap cutting process to ensure prize money is spread around.
To enter a Monday competition you enter your name down on an entry sheet posted on the Seniors Notice Board. The sheets are posted 3-4 weeks ahead of the date of the competition. On the day, you pick up your card and pay £2 entry fee at the Pro shop. The summer fiddle is only a £1 entry fee.
Financially we are self-sufficient and contribute generously to the Club itself, Club Captain's, Lady Captain's, Seniors Captain’s charities and give support to the Juniors section. We also give gratuities to the staff from our funds as well as subsidising some of our events
Socially we have a Summer Barbecue in July and an Annual Dinner and Prize Giving in November both include wives/partners/lady friends. The Barbecue is new this year, the Dinner is very popular with well over 100 attending.
We disseminate information regularly to over 90 members by e-mail of which over 80 are regular players. Our overall objective is to provide regular competitive golf for senior players in an enjoyable atmosphere where winning is not all and the camaraderie and companionship have their place.
