To comply with the current advice to help prevent the spread of Covid-19 the Seniors’ Section is currently operating an online booking system (explained below)
All Seniors belong to an email distribution list, allowing them to keep up to date with the playing programme, tee times, results and prize winners.
Seniors Section booking system:
Cradoc Golf Club uses BRS Golf (Booking Reservation System), a division of GolfNow, (either click on “Book a Tee time” on the club’s website or download the BRS Golf app). The Tee Sheet is available on the BRS system a week before the event on Tuesdays and Fridays.
For team competitions: enter your name against any Tee Time within the Seniors’ reservation; entry closes at noon 2 days before the date of the event. The draw is made, you are advised of your tee time and playing partners by email the day before the event. This system is also used for Match Play competitions.
For Individual Stableford competitions there is no draw and you simply book the tee time with the playing partners of your choice.
Please note: For all Seniors’ events you should aim to arrive no earlier than15 minutes prior to your tee time and avoid any crowding in and around the first tee. You will be greeted by the Captain or the Vice-Captain who will explain that day’s format as well as any notable course conditions.
