Senior’s Section

 

The Lyme Regis seniors’ section is part of the men’s section of the golf club. A senior is defined by age 55, apart from one or two competitions where either over 50 or 60 is the age limit. Seniors have  interclub matches with local clubs and KO competitions against other clubs. The seniors won the Knighton Heath KO trophy in 2018. In addition to club competitions at the weekend, seniors can also play in several competitions during the year, monthly stablefords, medals, trophy competitions, and knock outs, as well as the seniors’ club championship in July. Seniors’ competitions are on a Monday.There are also two seniors open competitions and an open team competition, the Jurassic Challenge, which attracts a dozen local clubs.
