Welcome to the 99th year of Ken-Wo Senior Men’s, we are excited about the up coming centennial and will the lead up at this season’s opener, May 6th, dressed in 1921 golf attire. You will find that most of us still have the 1921 clothing, it’s a dress shirt, dress pants or knickers, tie, sweater or jacket, golf shoes and topped with a tam or fedora. We will take a photo at 8:30 before we head out to start the Shotgun.
Ken-Wo Senior Mens is your opportunity to meet and socialize with your peers, enjoy camaraderie with fellow seniors, stay fit and active while we play for numerous trophies and prizes. Any male Ken-Wo member over 55 is eligible to join the Senior Men’s Organization and we are proud to recognize our very large group of Super Seniors (those who golf beyond their 70th birthday). There is a weekly draw on Wednesday mornings where we shuffle members and times to promote the social aspects of our group while creating balanced teams and use a variety of formats to expand the enjoyment. All of our competitions and scoring are based on percentage handicap scores so every member has a chance to win every week and every competition. We also have a 9-hole group for those that don't want to spend as much time on the course.
If interested, register and join us on the Senior Men’s Opening day on May 6th 2020. Alternately, contact any of the Senior Men’s executive members below.
The Senior Men’s Organization also manages the Club’s two day Senior Men’s Championship, usually in late August. This event is open to all Ken-Wo member men over 55. It is one of the premiere events of the season, combining golf, prizes, and an awards banquet. We usually have a well-funded prize pool, generously contributed by our sponsors. This event is also used for Bluenose Cup Senior team selection.
Throughout the season we have a running match play tournament for the Babcock Trophy, concluding near the season’s end. Every season, we also have some form of ongoing “fun” competition that motivates players to play more and try to up their game. We also select one of our members who best symbolize the attributes of the senior golfer and recognize him with the Outstanding Senior Golfer award.
The membership fee of $20 funds the prize pools.
Many of our members also participate in the Valley Seniors Golf, providing an opportunity to play on 10 member golf courses in the Valley through the season. Peter Oomen is the designated Valley Seniors rep.
Come join us and enjoy the wonderful club and atmosphere that Ken-Wo is so proud to provide.
