From The Golf Tournament Committee Chairman
We have an exciting schedule of six senior golf tournaments in 2017! Several locations are new for Southern Seniors including Trump National Doral in January and Villas of Grand Cypress in March. We are also privileged to play quite a few private clubs in 2017.
Formats of competition are three two-man team events and three individual tournaments. Events in January, March, 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 2017 ladies have a variety of team formats at most tournaments. Ladies will also play an 18-hole individual stroke play competition at Linville and a 36-hole individual stableford at Abingdon.
For social attendees, non-competitive social golf is always available plus a variety of other planned group 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. Noel and I look forward to seeing you this year!
