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.

Seniors autumn Newsletter

Hi everyone!

It’s hard to believe that we’re almost at the end of this year’s summer season. However, with preferred lies now in operation, the evenings and mornings appreciably darker, and with the clocks going back later this month, it’s clear autumn is well and truly here.

Our very successful season of inter-club matches has come to an end. This year we won thirteen of our twenty-six matches, halved four and lost only nine: a great set of results. Also, this year, for the first time, we won the Baggs trophy against Goring and Streatley. I must say a massive thank-you to everyone who represented the club. I also know we rely greatly on a small core of seniors who put their names down for almost every match: without you my work would be significantly more difficult and so there’s an extra special thanks to you guys.

Since my last newsletter we’ve had a couple of internal events. We had a fantastic Veterans’ Trophy competition in August which saw Derek Abby emerge victorious with thirty-six points on countback from both Dave Taylor who finished second and Jeff Wayling who was third. Then in September we had a very exciting Seniors versus Superveterans competition which saw the Supervets win convincingly. I’m sure the “youngsters” will be out for revenge next year.

Although we’re in October there are still several events to look forward to. Later in the month, we have the Seniors versus the Ladies, closely followed by our end-of-season Stableford competition which is followed by yours truly giving a short summary of the season. For those of you who have represented the club this season there is also the Club Player of the Year. Later on, we have the Captain’s Drive-In and finally the Mixed Christmas Celebration, always a fun event. Plus of course there are Jim’s Wednesday and Friday roll-ups. With the winter fast approaching I’m sure the amount of golf many people play will reduce but don’t forget there’s always a warm welcome in the club bar if you fancy a drink or something to eat.

So that’s it for this year for my newsletters. Happy golfing throughout the autumn and winter and don’t worry: it’s be spring again before we know it and the 2018 season of fixtures is already close to being finalised.

Cheers

Bob
