The Tour consists of a series of Mens Seniors Open Events around Cheshire, all on a Monday, which tends not to clash with your regular Seniors roll up at your respective clubs.
The aim of the Tour is to bring together all the Gentlemen Senior golfers (age 55 ) around Cheshire, build friendships, play some lovely courses, enjoy yourselves, keep fit, and maybe pick up a prize or two along the way.
Seniors Golf is booming at the moment, and is great to see so many out playing competitively week on week. Each week there will be 4 main prizes up for grabs, but also a series of spot prizes, i.e. Nearest the Pins on all the course's par 3's, Longest Drive, Nearest the Pin in 2 Shots, and two special prizes for the best scores of pairings with a combined age of 140 years .
There are so many prizes to have a chance of winning, it really adds to the day and the motivation to play. Included in the entry fee of £40.00 per pair is your Comp Fee, Green Fee, a Bacon Sandwich and a Tea or Coffee, Twos Sweep, a Raffle Ticket and Order of Merit.
I hope you will agree, this is a bargain, and hopefully too good to miss!

To make it fair for all players, and to give everyone a chance of winning a prize, the top 3 places will have their Tour Handicaps reduced after each event by the following:
1st Prize reduced by 15%
2nd Prize reduced by 10%
3rd Prize reduced by 5%
Each week, the top ten players will receive points 11 for first place down to 2 for tenth place, everybody who enters will earn a point automatically. The points are given individually, so you don't have to play with the same partner every week.
The top 12 players on the Order of Merit will qualify for a Ryder Cup type match against the top 12 players on the North West Amateur Seniors Tour, this will take place at a prestigious Cheshire Course at the end of the 2019 season, the year after it will be played over in the North West region
It is hoped this could become a really hard fought competition and great fun between the two Tours.
