The Seniors Section is very active, playing 14 local clubs on a home and away basis. The friendly league was set up largely due to the foresight of Fred Waywell in the 1990’s getting the Club to join a local group. The league is from Bury in the South, Colne in the East and Fishwick in the West and includes most of the neighbouring Clubs. A very civilised method of playing golf, competitive fourballs, good companionship, excellent courses, good food and all for relatively little cost (£5 at home and £10 away)

George Schofield Trophy The George Schofield Memorial Trophy, which is a replica of the famous Claret Jug, was donated by his family and is a much prized Trophy to win. Peter Schofield donates the prizes each year and the first winner was Eric Foster and Jack Maddox won the Trophy for the following four years. No one has successfully defended the title since. John Webb won the 2014 competition. Peter and his family attended the presentation. Pictured below the Club Captain Peter Baildon with Peter Schofield and the prize winners

The Seniors Knockout comps are very popular and very competitive. In 2009 a new trophy was on offer for the Doubles. It was very generously donated by the daughter of Jack Maddox who incidentally lives in Canada. She wanted her fathers memory to live on at the Club and henceforth the Jack Maddox Memorial Trophy will be the prize for the winners Peter Baildon and Dave Ashworth were the 2014 Doubles KO winners. The 2014 John Burke Memorial Trophy final was won by Ken Boland.
