County Seniors 2020

A Message from the new Seniors County Captain Paddy Maclennan (Enmore Park GC)

Paddy (centre) and his selectors, Barry Simpson (left) Taunton & Pickeridge, Jerry Hodge of Burnham & Berrow, contact all affiliated clubs to identify low handicap seniors who would be interested in competing for a place in the County Senior Team.

Paddy highlighted:

"We are in a highly competitive league with other counties being able to field players of low handicaps which has always put us in the position of having to punch above our weight, not that it frightens us (quite the contrary!) nevertheless we must build on the fine results early last season in beating both Devon and Wiltshire as the Seniors Channel league will become more and more competitive”.

This year we will be drawing on some 20 players who are available to represent the County with some new faces who I am certain will be valuable additions, but we will always be on the lookout for talented golfers as the year progresses.

The players competing in our pre-season trials will be from: Bath; Burnham & Berrow; Cricket St Thomas; Enmore Park; Mendip Spring; Minehead & West Somerset, Oake Manor; Taunton & Pickeridge; Mendip Spring; Wells; Weston-super-Mare; Stockwood Vale and Wheathill”.

NB* Any golfer currently over 55 years (or approaching this milestone in 2020) with a handicap of 5 or less should consider finding out more about what’s involved in playing representative team golf at County level.
