Seniors’ Section

Message from The Seniors’ Captain 2023 – Ian Lavender

In the first instance I would like to thank the Senior Section for electing me their Captain for the 2023/24 season. I pledge to continue in Past Captain Kevin’s footsteps in making Senior golf at Sleaford enjoyable and accessible to anyone over the age of 55.

Having started golf late in life, in my mid 50’s, I immediately knew that it was the most intricate, frustrating, challenging sport I had ever attempted – and I was hooked! We are all try to beat the course, not necessarily the persons playing with you, and most of the time, your fellow competitors will encourage, advise and urge you on. Very few other sports have this mindset.

Our Senior Section at Sleaford has 130 participants, and that number is growing. Players of all handicaps, from low single figures to some higher, more generous allowances, compete in Stablefords, medals, trophy competitions and home and away fixtures against sixteen other golf clubs virtually every week. If anyone is looking to sharpen their golf game, then here at the Seniors is the place to do it!

It must be said that all sections of the Club merge and cooperate on a very impressive scale. The acceptance and friendliness that I have experienced here at Sleaford is second to none. All for One, One for All would be a very good motto for us.

Best Wishes to All
