The Seniors Section, known as the SOAKS, is a very active group for those aged 55 and above within the Men’s membership of Stratford Oaks.
The maxim of the SOAKS is enjoyable and friendly golf …and plenty of it.
We welcome players of all abilities. Reserved tee times on Tuesday and Thursday mornings enable organised Medals and Stablefords to be staged on a monthly basis during the summer, as well as a smaller programme of events in the winter. As with the other sections of the club we hold our own Captain’s Day, Invitation Day and Away Days. There are also informal “roll ups”, giving lots of opportunity for those new to the game to acquire a handicap.
We have about 100 members who support our varied fixtures and numerous competitions and up to 24 matches against other clubs played throughout the year. Games are more often than not, followed up with a drink at the bar or maybe some lunch.
We look forward to meeting any new or prospective SOAKS.
