Welcome to the Web Page of the Ancient Druids, the Seniors’ Section of Druids Heath Golf Club. The “Ancients” are a lively bunch of Members of the Club aged 55 and over, who organise and participate in a range of competitions, matches and social events throughout the year and, in so doing, raise worthwhile sums of money for the charities nominated by our Club Captain, Ladies’ Captain and Seniors’ Captain.
At present there are over 200 Ancient Druids, representing over 40% of the Club’s male playing membership. Our philosophy is to offer a variety of opportunities for Senior Members to enjoy competitive and/or fun golf in a sociable, friendly environment, regardless of age or handicap.
As well as running 10 Seniors’ Competitions, including a Seniors’ Club Championship, we have our own Winter League and play Team Matches against 16 other Clubs’ Seniors’ Sections. These 32 matches are played on a ‘home and away’ basis from March to October every year and after each, we enjoy a meal, a bit of banter and a drink or two with our opponents.
However, the “Jewel in our Crown” is the Seniors’ Charity Open in July, when some 180 players from all over the Midlands and beyond, join us for a 4 ball-better ball competition with an extensive array of competition and raffle prizes.
This part of the Club’s website is devoted to keeping Members, Ex- Members and Prospective Members of the Section, informed of our news, results and activities through a light-hearted monthly newsletter, team and competition results and reports as well as miscellaneous bits of information and “gossip”.
I hope you will find it all enjoyable and informative.
