JANUARY / FEBRUARY 2019

Dear Bishopswood Senior Golfers,

Before I go any further may I wish you all a very belated Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year 2019.
I wish you many happy sun soaked hours playing the game you love in the company of your very best friends, your golf buddies.
Before I look forward to what's up and coming may I take this opportunity of looking back to the Christmas Texas Scramble so well arranged and organised by Jim Holmes ably assisted by his wing man Phil Hearn. The event proved to me that Bishopswood have currently a collection of some of the most talented and competitive senior golfers in the area.
The event was a team stableford competition and finished with two teams attaining an amazing score of 59 points !! The winners on count back were Bob Lycett, Frank Head, David Corallo and Ron Cupit. The team, pipped on the post, were Adrian Hamblin, Neil Deller-Merricks, Chris Coventy and yours truly, Jeff Wayling. The prizes were magnificent and were awarded also to nearest the pin winners Dave Taylor, Dennis Quirk, Colin Lomax and Dennis Mason. What an enjoyable competition it proved to be. Incredible to think that the team finishing last amassed 52 points, just 7 points from top place. Congratulations to the whole field of 32 golfers who played on the day.

With regard to the forthcoming season. Very soon a "call to arms" notice will be posted on the Seniors Notice Board for the first match of the season versus Dummer away on the 5th March 2019. 6 pairs will be required to fly the Bishopswood flag on what is sure to be poignant occasion. It is likely to be the last time we play our good friends of Dummer at their venue before the imminent full takeover by Basingstoke Golf Club. Following this shortly will be your invitation to play in the pre-season stableford competition on Wednesday 13th March 2019.This event is always a lot of fun and a very good ice-breaker for the season ahead. As usual will will hold a short meeting after the presentation to allow an exchange of views, ideas and issues and hopefully arrive at solutions agreeable to all.

One final point before I send you all asleep. Good Luck and "Get Well Soon" to Chris Coventry who as I write is preparing to be admitted to Royal Berks for a hip replacement
We will keep him in the information loop while he is away and look forward to welcoming him back on the course upon his return in 2-3 months time.

Best wishes to you all.

Jeff
