The Senior (KEGGS) section is a friendly group of members who meet up at 10:00 am on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday to play and enjoy a round of golf. All of the golf balls go into a hat and are drawn to see who plays with who. Note: due to current restrictions, players need to use BRS to book their Wednesday and Friday times.

There is a large range of handicaps in the KEGGS from 7 all the way through to 38.
