The Millbrook Seniors are a section within the main club and offer a warm welcome to all Senior Members, new and old.
They have “Roll Ups” on Tuesday and Friday mornings, normally arriving before 7.45am, ready to enter a course card in the draw for an 8:00am tee start. During the darker mornings of December and January, this is delayed to an 8.30am start. The Friday Roll-Up is a more relaxed round, normally based around team events. A small Roll Up fee (currently £2.00) is collected on both days to support events, prizes etc. during the year.
Dedicated Seniors Competitions, normally on Tuesdays, are open to club members aged 55 & over and Qualifying Competitions are also arranged regularly for handicap adjustment.
Competitive home and away matches are played against other clubs in the surrounding areas, with a charge for players to cover the meals provided. The Seniors also have a Spring and Summer away day, where a competitions is played at local clubs.
As well as golf, the Millbrook Seniors have an annual Christmas Dinner where their ladies are invited. This is also a presentation night for competition winners.
The Seniors are run by a committee consisting of The Seniors Captain, Vice-Captain, General Secretary, Treasurer plus the immediate past Captain. There is also a provision for another member to offer support for the competitions that are run. All positions are elected at the Seniors AGM that takes place early March each year. Since the Seniors Section is self-supporting from roll up fees, it maintains its own accounts that are presented by the elected Treasurer. The Incoming Captain sets out the Charities that the Seniors will be supporting during the year at functions and Charity competitions.
