Umm, err....woo-hoo! I guess? But at least I'm now a senior in California golf land!

So, which course have the best deals for old codgers like me on weekdays or weekends?
I'd appreciate a few tips from my fellow age-adjacent twilighters....

Cheers,

Mark T

55 does not get you much. Most courses are 60/65 for discounts. You will just have to search the local courses and hope that there are many GK members who can provide more info than I did.

Larry is absolutely correct. @ 59 I have yet to qualify for anything on a Sr. level. Varies by course, but 60/62/65 seems to be the magic age numbers to qualify for Sr. discounts.

The goal is long and straight! But on the many times I cannot seem to hit them straight, I at least want to hit them long!

I believe that Coyote Hills considers senior at age 55, but Larry would be better qualified as he plays Coyote more frequently than I do. Whispering Lakes used to consider a senior at age 50, but I do not know if that has changed? Plus, do you really want to drive there to play?

I would just check the websites here on Greenskeepers. Goose Creek, Hidden Valley, Eagle Glen, Dos Lagos, Anaheim Hills, are all 55 for seniors along with El Prado and Los Serranos at 55.

I just hit 55 a month ago. Haven't really started looking for the senior discounts yet, but I do know Talega's players club Seniors are age 55 and get a pretty good deal there.

NCGA recognizes the double nickel as Senior here in NorCal. Is that the magic number for the SCGA too?

NCGA this year introduced a new "Senior Series"(over 55) to the extensive and well run tournament golf offerings they administer yearly. Google the organization to find out more.

Some courses ask any Sr's in the group when booking tee time by phone. I usually ask what number do they have in mind, and find that to be at least 60. Since age is just that a number, check out the BIRTHDAY GOLF tab on this site and find a course that you can play at free or at a discount on your birthday and you'll benefit even if you don't meet the old age criteria. Here's to many more years until you do!

Happy Birthday and get out and play.

It's just FUN
