Scene set for English Senior Men’s and Women’s Amateur Championships

The top senior golfers in England are ready to compete over five days from Monday and decide the outcome of two prestigious national titles.

At the Leicestershire Golf Club, a strong field will battle it out for the right to become the inaugural winner of the English Senior Men’s Amateur Championship.

This new event complements the long-running English Senior Men’s Stroke Play Championship which will be staged next month.

England internationals such as Ian Attoe, Paul Wharton, Stephen Jensen and current English Senior Men’s Stroke Play champion Rupert Kellock (main image) are all primed for play.

All competitors will play 36 holes of stroke play – 18 holes on days one and two – with the top 32 players qualifying for the match play.

Over at High Post Golf Club, the long-established English Senior Women’s Amateur Championship will take place at the Wiltshire venue.

Aldeburgh’s Fiona Edmond (pictured above)  is back to defend the trophy she won in splendid fashion last year at Market Rasen Golf Club.

The format for the women’s event is two days of stroke play with the top 32 qualifiers proceeding to the match play section of the championship where they will compete for the Wendy Taylor Salver.

The players with the 16 lowest scores after the stroke play rounds, who are aged 60 or over on the first day of the championship,  will qualify for the match play stages of the Ann Howard Trophy.
