Our Senior's Section, staff and volunteers did a wonderful job organising our recent Senior's Open Day on Monday 20th September 2021. We saw just shy of 80 keen golfers heading out on our West Course, which many of our guests had not yet had chance to pit themselves against. As our Greenkeeping team have been making sure to maintain the quality of the course, we have recieved nothing but praise for the conditions on the day and many compliments about the newly designed layout.
Here is a small sample of the kind feedback we have received...
Dear General Manager,
This email is for you, but I would also be most grateful if Frank Cozzo, the Seniors’ Captain were to see it too.
I was fortunate enough to be invited by Ian Copeland to play in your Seniors’ Open yesterday and was in the first group out on the course. From the very beginning I was impressed by the sound organisation and welcoming atmosphere engendered by all who met me. The Reception Committee were very professional and humorous and managed to coach a couple of pounds from my pocket for worthwhile causes! The bar staff were very attentive and the coffee and bacon roll was a most welcome start to the day.
We were met on the first tee with a comprehensive briefing about the course and what to expect as the round progressed. The course was in great condition, with the greens tortuous but fair – I think it was a masterstroke to hold this event directly after the Club Champs in order to present the best possible test to us. I must also remark that the course layout is superb and I especially like how each hole has its own setting, creating a feeling that this hole is unique and in isolation from the rest. And then you move to the next tee and this wonderful illusion of exclusivity is recreated once more. It really was a most enjoyable round of golf, finished off with a devilish putting competition and more cash paid out! The meal afterwards was delicious, with the carvery generously presented. Once again, the staff were polite and conscientious and looked after us very well indeed.
Thank you to you and your team for excellently organising such a fun event. I left Weybrook Park with a smile on my face and am very much looking forward to a return visit.

Thank you for a splendid day on Monday. I thought the course was great, the organisation was first class and I enjoyed the company in a happy four ball.
I hope you raised a lot of money for Prostate Cancer. I must say that I thought your first eight holes were absolutely marvellous - shame about the rest ;D
Cliff - Seniors Captain, Donnington Grove
What a wonderful day. Thank you for the hard work in organising such an event. It was a pleasure playing on the remodelled Weybrook course and the weather was great.
Thanks to Peter also for hosting Dave and me . The lunch was excellent thank you. Look forward to returning next year.

All 3 of my guests had a great time, and I know they always enjoy playing the course. Most importantly, the day was brilliantly organised, and your supporting team made my guests feel most welcome.
Many thanks from me as well, and fantastic to hear that so much money was raised on the day.

Glyn and I very much enjoyed taking part in your open last week. We thought the course was fantastic and hope to return again soon.
