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 every Tuesday mornings for a combination of both Medal and Stableford competitions staged on a monthly basis during the summer, as well as a smaller programme of events in the winter, together with some friendly individual and team competitions.
To be eligible to play in the Senior section you pay a small annual entry fee (directly to the section) to cover all monthly competitions (pro rata arrangements for those joining during the year).
Many Seniors also book tee times on Thursday mornings where occasional informal fun event might be played. As with the other sections of the club we hold our own Captain’s Day, Invitation Day and Away Day.
Tuesday tee times Competitions are selected by the Competition Secretary so new members will have the opportunity to meet, get to know and play alongside existing members on any of our Tuesday events.
We have about 100 members who support our varied fixtures and numerous competitions and up to 24 friendly 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. Please feel free to contact me using the form below if I can help with any information you require regarding our section.
