The County Seniors Section is open to all NGU affiliated members over the age of 55 although County matches are in the main for players with a single figure handicap.
The aim of the section is to enjoy good social combined with a competitive edge. Matches are played throughout the Midland Region alternating home and away each year.
Other Countries involved are Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Nottinghamshire, Norfolk. Suffolk, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire and Lincolnshire. Most of these Counties come together to compete in the annual Midland County Team Championship with the winners progressing to the National Final played against 2 other regional finalists over 3 days at a top venue. Northamptonshire were fortunate to be finalists in 2006.
Other fixtures include a warm up match against the County 1st Team in late March and the Seniors County Championships which is open to all members aged 55 or over on competition day, With trophies being presented for best scratch and best nett and other team and age related prizes all are welcome.
A fixture list is sent to all eligible players early each year seeking their availability. This means we can plan well ahead and give all a chance to represent their County.
We are well served by our Secretary John Harris who would be happy to receive contact details from any member with a handicap of or below. Please forward these to John's e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org'. We will endeavour to include you at the earliest opportunity.
