The Seniors here at Wellow Golf Club now have over 100 members. The sections members age from 55 (minimum) to the high 80s, with as many as 70 of these seniors playing regularly in their weekley Roll-ups on Thursday mornings.
The Wellow Seniors section has always been a large section at the club and we are continuing to grow with the help of the Captain Graham Sims, his Vice, David Coombes and their team.
On a regular Thursday, players arrive and sign-in. Then names are drawn for pairing and we play a variety of team and individual formats keeping the games fun and exciting.
