DescriptionSenior golfers in a group have more fun and play more rounds of golf than the average golfer. Having raised their families and retired from their professions, senior golfers have more time than their younger counterparts. For that reason senior golfers are considered to be the “bread-and-butter” of the local golf courses around the country.
Golf courses are becoming more and more “senior friendly” to compete for the senior golfer’s business. Many of these seniors along with their spouses or significant other play mainly for social reasons. Their love of the game and the fact they love playing the game with friends has forced the golf industry to cater to them for their business.
While seniors might not have the ability to hit the ball as far as a younger golfer, they know their limitations and will play a more intelligent game. They will use the knowledge of the course and several other pieces of experience to score points. Because the senior golfers use their knowledge and their experience, they more than make up for the loss of yards on the tee off.
