ABOUT THE TEWKESBURY PARK SENIORS’ SECTION

  Check the course condition

Hello I’m Chris Matthews and TPGC Senior Captain for 2019. Before I tell you a little about the Senior Section at TPGC. I would like to take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to our Website and introduce my Charity for the coming year:  

PROSTATE CANCER UK

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men (as common as breast cancer in women) and will affect approximately 1 in 8 men at some point in their life.

  • The risk of getting prostate cancer increases with age, with the average age for diagnosis between 70 and 74.
  • Men whose father or brother have been diagnosed with prostate cancer are 2 1/2 times more likely to get prostate cancer themselves.
  • 330,000 men are currently living with prostate cancer, and one man dies from it every 45 minutes.
  • Despite the above, 83% of those at increased risk of prostate cancer do no know they are at risk 
Not a comforting story, but it is precisely why raising money to fund research and awareness is so important. Several members of the Section have been or are affected by prostate cancer, and sadly the chances are that more will be in the future.

 

A LITTLE ABOUT THE SENIORS AT TPGC

The section is an integral part of the Tewkesbury Park Golf Club. It supports its own nominated charities and those of the Club Captain. The Seniors’ section is open to any male member of Tewkesbury Park Golf Club who is aged 55 or over, but Club members must be registered with the Seniors’ section and pay an annual levy of £3.  Current membership is well over 100 with the vast majority of these being active golfers. Well over a third of the current membership have joined within the last 4 years so the section has a growing and enthusiastic group of players from all walks of life.
The section has reserved tee times, normally on Mondays and Thursdays from 07:56 to 09:32, (08:28 to 10:04 for December & January). These may be changed if public holidays fall on a Monday or Thursday, or if they are required for Hotel events. These times are generally used for social golf and for the section’s own competitions. In addition to the competition programme, a large number of inter-club matches are played during a season.
