SENIORS' MATCHES

Seniors' matches are for ladies aged over 50 on the 1st January.  The League matches feature seven singles played off scratch. The team is selected based on the players with the lowest handicaps available for the day.  
The Friendly matches are normally four ball better ball and we typically play a team of handicap of 8 to 14. 

If you would like to be considered to play for the County Seniors please contact the Seniors' Captain, Susanna Mitterer. 

There is an annual Inter-County Seniors Team Championship, in which four Seniors are invited to represent the County. Bucks is hosting the event this year, on 23rd September at Woburn Golf Club, Dukes course.

There are two Seniors' meetings a year (Spring and Autumn), details of which are available on the Competitions Tab.

There is also a new Midlands South Seniors championship starting in 2019, which will be held at Temple Golf Club on Monday 8th July.

At the 2018 AGM, County Senior Colours were announced for Catherine Smith (Burnham Beeches).

2019 Senior Captain's Report

Improved performance from our Senior Team

I am extremely delighted to announce that the Bucks Senior Team came third in the League (with 4 points) behind winners Berkshire and Hampshire (both on 6 points). It was a tightly fought league with Berkshire winning on 18.5 matches won versus Hampshire's 18 matches. Our Bucks Senior Team won 13 matches and I am very proud of this years' valiant effort. Great thanks goes to all those who played! 

 Friendly Matches

We played two friendly matches: beating Bedfordshire 4:0 and halving with Middlesex 2:2. Again, my thanks to all Senior Ladies who played in our Friendly Matches.
