The first Open event of the 2019 season took place on Wednesday 24th April with the Senior Men’s Team Open. An excellent entry of 30 teams took part representing 20 different golf clubs from across England and Wales. The early starters certainly had the better of the weather with sunshine until around midday and then a spell of heavy rain. Non the less the golf course played well and feedback was positive.
The format for the competition was 90% handicap allowance, stableford playing from yellow tees; 2 scores to count on holes 1-6, 3 scores to count on holes 7-12 and all 4 scores to count on holes 13-18.
Builth Wells Golf Club will hold a further 2 Seniors Open events in 2019, Seniors Pairs (4 B/B/B) on Monday 3rd June for seniors aged 55 and over; Seniors Open (individual stableford) on Wednesday 3rd July for seniors aged 55 and over.
