From The Golf Tournament Committee Chairman
We have an exciting schedule of six senior golf tournaments in 2015! Several locations are new for Southern Seniors including ChampionsGate in January and Sawgrass in March. Among the clubs we will play are Elk River GC in May and Country Club of NC in October.
Formats of competition are four two-man team events and two individual tournaments. The team events are three match play, and one stroke play. Five tournaments are an opportunity for guests to be introduced to Southern Seniors. As always, if you don't have team partner in mind, the Tournament Committee will gladly pair you. Individual competitions are both match play, at Linville Golf Club in May and at Sea Island in November for the 85th Annual Championship.

Again in 2015 ladies have their choice of formats at each tournament with eighteen or thirty-six holes of play, and this year, ladies will play a competition at the Linville G.C.
Social attendees will find more special activities offered and additional gatherings planned at several events. Non-competitive social golf is also always available.
Your senior golf tournament committee welcomes your input on all aspects of our events, so please let us hear from you. Cathie and I look forward to seeing you this year!
