From The Golf Tournament Committee Chairman
We have an exciting schedule of seven senior golf tournaments in 2016! Several locations are new for Southern Seniors including Stowe, VT in July and Bandon Dunes, OR in August. We are also privileged to play quite a few private clubs for the first time in 2016.
Formats of competition are three two-man team events and four individual tournaments. Events in April, May, and July are an opportunity to introduce guests to Southern Seniors. As always, if you don't have team partner in mind, the Tournament Committee will gladly pair you. Individual competitions are match play, stroke play, and stableford.

Again in 2016 ladies have a choice of formats at each tournament with eighteen or thirty-six holes of play, and this year, ladies will play an individual stroke play competition at the Linville G.C.
For social attendees, non-competitive social golf is always available plus a variety of other planned activities at every event.
Your senior golf tournament committee welcomes your input on all aspects of our events, so please let us hear from you. Leslie and I look forward to seeing you this year!
