Playing with the Seniors

We have a very healthy Seniors Section (both in terms of numbers & physically). Regular roll-ups are Wednesday & Friday mornings and there is a full programme of Inter-Club friendly matches throughout the season. You will normally find several of them hanging around the bar - say hi and ask then to point you in the direction of Bob Lycett, our Seniors organiser.

OK! So as I write this it’s the first day of the meteorological spring and we’re suffering blizzard conditions and the course is, unsurprisingly, closed. However, it will get better. There’s plenty to look forward to this month. Our season of Seniors gents’ inter-club matches gets underway on Tuesday 6th March with our traditional season opener away at Dummer: let’s hope the weather has improved sufficiently for that to go ahead. In my absence Jeff Wayling is captaining the team so a massive thank you to him.
On the following week we have our Seniors’ pre-season stableford on March 14th, which is followed by a meal, prize-giving, and a quick chat from yours truly. There’s still time to sign-up for this event but get your skates on as I’ll be doing the draw around the 5th of March. If you can’t play but would like to come to the meal just sign up identifying it’s for the meal only, or let me know directly: it will be great to see you. Following that, we have a home Seniors’ match against Tylney Park on the 22nd of March. Finally, looking more widely, we have the annual Saturday versus Sunday Boys competition on March 23rd, when the Sunday Boys will be looking for revenge for last year’s “not narrow” defeat.
Things are moving more generally within the club as well, with the entry forms for some of the knock-out competitions out on the lectern in the bar area: entries for this first tranche of competitions close on 23rd March. We’ve already had the first of Captain Malcom’s fun competitions with the Chinese New Year greensomes on Saturday 17 February: a stableford competition held in remarkably good weather and was great fun. Next up is the Easter Bunny Trot on Sunday 25th April. There’s also some evening events coming up including the Irish night and the Vinyl Revival night. Oh and don’t forget the draw for a free year’s membership: the details are behind the bar.
Finally, a massive thank-you to everyone who’s sent me good luck and get well messages relating to my recent operation. I’m well on the mend and I’m hopeful of getting back on the golf course very soon. The consultant said I should be able to chip and putt in another week or thereabouts, and if that’s the case I’m looking for a dramatic improvement in my golf this season: everyone knows these were weak links in my game before the operation so every little helps!
That’s all for now. By the time of the next newsletter the clocks will have changed and the new season will be in full swing: I for one can’t wait.
