Senior Open Golf Competitions - how they have evolved

Over the years, the competitions have seen some significant changes, further enhancing the playing experience. But one thing remains consistent – the spirit of competition and the love for golf that permeates every corner of our verdant fairways.

The Distinct Features of Senior Open Golf Competitions

Challenging Yet Accessible Course Design

Each hole in the Bury Golf Club course has been meticulously designed with golfers of all abilities in mind. The layout presents a fair challenge, rewarding strategic thinking and precision. Yet, the course remains accessible, with varying tee lengths catering to differing skill levels. Thus, both seasoned golfers and novices find themselves on an equal playing field.

Designed in 1920, by the esteemed Dr Alister Mackenzie (the very same gentleman who designed Augusta National), Bury Golf Club features a number of his signature 2-tiered greens and is a testament to his innovative design ideas and artistic flair.
