Gordon added ‘this is the next stage of our controlled expansion of the SRC competition which will see the number of participating clubs capped at 200, within six regions, for the 2023 season.
Incoming 2022 SRC President, Tom Nederpel, announced three of the five regional playoff
venues for the 2022 season as Brockville Country Club, Bridgewater Country Club and West Haven Country Club. Locations of the remaining two playoff venues, and the Championship venue, are under negotiation.
The Senior Ryder Cup was created in 1999, with four clubs, to provide a forum for senior male golfers (ages 55+) who enjoy competitive team match play golf. The SRC is a not-for-profit organization, conducted by a dedicated volunteer group of businesspersons for the enjoyment of all member clubs.
Over 2500 golfers compete in annual events in order to qualify to represent
their golf clubs in the Senior Ryder Cup.
