The Williams Lake Senior’s Golf Club will hit the links for the first time this season next Wednesday.

Club president Arnie Zimmerman is looking to round up more members for this year’s group.

“What we’d like to do is entice more senior players to come join us,” Zimmerman said, noting the club will allow anyone 50 and up to join. “We’ve got approximately 30 members in our club but we get maybe 16 to 20 out on a good day, so we’d like to have more come out and play golf.”

Zimmerman said players who aren’t members at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club can pay a $25 drop-in fee for the nine-hole round.

“Some of us will play our nine holes and then carry on and do the other nine and play 18,” he said.

The club meets every Wednesday at 9 a.m. Registration can be done on the seniors’ board at the WLGTC clubhouse by signing a sign-up sheet.

“We have volunteers that try to line people up that don’t have carts with people that do have carts,” Zimmerman said. “They try to have enough carts so that no one has to walk, but some people like to walk, and that’s fine, too.”

Zimmerman added the club is a great to way get out, to have some fun and to socialize.

“We’re not real competitive,” he said. “But it’s a great social thing. We see a lot of 50 and up golfers that are members and we’d just like to have them join us for a good time.”

The Williams Lake Senior’s Golf Club has two meetings a year — the first following next Wednesday’s round at the Fox’s Den Restaurant  and the second at the end of the season.

“We also have an invitational tournament (date to be determined following spring meeting) and a wind-up tournament in September,” he said.

The group plays until September, throughout the season.
