Seniors Section

The Seniors of Petersfield Golf Club welcome all men aged over 55 to join our active and sociable Seniors Section and join us in our competitions, matches and fun social golf.

No one seems to know precisely when the Seniors started in Petersfield but it is thought to be over 50 years ago.  The Club was founded in 1892 and we moved to our current Course in 1997.   We have a great Clubhouse and both the bar and food are quite superb at very reasonable prices.

We have about 160 Senior members who pay a £1 subscription that enables them to play with other men of the same age, of mixed ability but above all, who enjoy their golf.  A number of these have now reached the age where they just enjoy the social side.

Our regular Seniors Day is Thursday where we have the tee booked from 7.30am – 10.15 am.  This is run on a roll-up basis that enables players of all abilities to play with different people each week in both qualifying and fun formats. The day is overseen by our Scrutineer of the day and everyone under the age of 80 is asked to take part some time during the year.

Our Seniors’ Committee preside over nine qualifying Medal competitions in the year on the first Thursday of every month, a number of qualifying Stablefords with the rest of the year being taken up by team and fun competitions.  Included in the various competitions are Honours Board competitions.

As well as the Thursdays, there are a number of informal groups that go out during the week and we have pair’s knockout competitions that run during the Summer and Winter.  We also have about thirty Seniors Matches with other local clubs run on a Matchplay basis.  These are a great day out where you get to partner someone different each time and to play on some of the best local courses for very little cost.  After all groups have finished we tend to shower and change into smart casual and enjoy a meal together where the banter is delightful!

We hold a number of social functions during the year where we can invite our partners to join us for great food, great company and a really good evening.

Our current Captain, Peter Gaut, assisted by Vice-Captain Bob Musker would be very happy to show you round both the Club and the Course and introduce you to other like-minded golfers.  If you do not have a handicap at present, then you can still play while you are qualifying.

We look forward to meeting up with you.
