The Senior Men's Section of Dunstable Downs Golf Club is open to all members who are 55 and over and are ‘substantially’ retired. There is a one off fee of £5 to join the section.
The Seniors meet on Tuesday and Friday mornings at 07:45 for a ‘Roll Up’ Competition, where everyone gets a game regardless of ability. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet new members as well as make new friends. All Seniors are considered for selection to play in the very popular and enjoyable ‘Downsmen’ Inter-Club matches. These are played both at home and away against other top county clubs.
The Dunstable Downs Golf Club Downsmen also play many enjoyable matches with the Ladies and Juniors, making sure they keep their reputation on track! An Eclectic league is run throughout the Summer months which is a qualifying competition for handicap.
Do come and join us for a round, you can be sure of a hearty welcome. You can often find us enjoying a post-game drink in the clubhouse and we’re very keen to welcome newcomers.
The Men's section provides members of all standards with opportunities to play competitive golf against other Clubs..
