Senior Captain 2024

It is with pride and honour that I take the role as Seniors Club Captain for 2024. I appreciate all your good wishes and support for this coming year. Our Seniors Committee focus and resolve will be do everything we can to ensure you have an enjoyable golfing year.

My thanks to our outgoing Captain Bill Bryce for all his assistance, courtesy and leadership in 2023 and having a very successful year.

I am privileged to be
Seniors' Captain for this year, as my Charity “The Willow Foundation” Bob and Meg Wilson Charity celebrates 25 years. See below a hyperlink to my charity ambassador.

We are very fortunate to have our hard-working members that give up their time, energy and expertise in serving on committees to ensure the club runs smoothly year on year. Our club and facilities are the envy of many of our neighbouring and visiting clubs alike. We are also very fortunate to have loyal and proud members and we extend a warm welcome to our new members joining this year.

I am confident that 2024 will be an exciting and positive year for the club and one we look forward to on and off the course.

I look forward to meeting you all and wish all our members a great golfing year in 2024.  My challenge to
you all is simply this, as Seniors are you getting the maximum benefit from your membership? On the notice board you will see all the committee members, if you want to play more in the senior section simply sign up on IG, or speak to any of us, let's see you playing with the group in 2024.


The Seniors Section is open to all members over the age of 55 and offers the opportunity to play golf socially and in organised competitions. All competitions are available to enter on the IG app which is available for download at:  If you need assistance downloading or using the app please speak with a member of staff in the pro-shop who will be able to assist, or contact myself.

  • On Mondays there is an organised event in aid of the Senior Captains Charity. Entry fee is £1.  (50% of the entry fees goes to charity and the remainder goes to the Winner and runner up).

  • On Wednesdays there is either a major competition, novelty competition or monthly  medal. Entry fees are £3 for non-trophy competitions and £4 for trophy competitions.

Throughout the year there are various other events including Inter-club matches, Singles and pairs Knockout, Senior Captains Day, Charity Events and a Winter League, all of which are published in the Cainhoe Wood diary as well as IG.

All new members receive an introductory email from our Handicap Secretary Coin Hare, but if you would like any further information or help with any aspect of your involvement within the Seniors Section, please contact me at or through the IG app messaging facility.

However you intend to enjoy your golf, the Seniors Section extends a warm welcome to you, so please come and get involved.
