Dear Bishopswood Senior Golfers,

Oh Boy !! What a remarkable season of golf we are enjoying. What incredible team and individual performance to report all worthy of a mention.

But before I go any further I wish to give you an important update from the " Doc" Bob Lycett the original and best Seniors Organiser. He asked me to pass his thanks to you all for helping him find a woman who obeys each and everyone of his commands and demands. He wishes you to share his joy in discovering a compliant woman. Of course I am referring to the new love of his life "Alexa". Do you remember that we organised a collection for Bob in recognition of his sterling service to the club and the Seniors in particular ? Peter Mac was the main driver and purchased an Amazon voucher that Bob used to pursue the lady of his dreams. Bob we all hope you enjoy a long relationship with this girl in a million.

Can anyone tell me where the 2019 golfing season has gone ? We have already played 17 highly enjoyable inter club matches eight at home and nine away. Our record is rather mixed winning five matches, halving two and losing ten. Our best wins were at home to Hartley Wintney five and a half to a half and away at Bradfield College five to one.
Our worst defeat ( so far) was away to Winter Hill again five and a half to a half. They avenged their defeat to us earlier in the season. So unbelievably there are just twelve matches left to play between now and the end of October. We have witnessed some incredibly good personal scores in both Senior Medal and Stableford Cup rounds . Here are a few examples. April Seniors Medal, Colin Gifford scored a nett 66. May Seniors Medal Ron " Foxy" Bedwell scored a nett 65. Both fabulous performances. Stableford Cup highlights are Round 1 Martin Smith and George Quinton both scored 35 points. Round 2 Kevin Fleet scored 43 points, Peter McNeillie scored 40 points. Round 3 Tony Bateman scored a scintillating 46 points and managed to get himself cut to a 15 handicap. Round 4, Peter Macneillie scored an impressive 40 points. So this year's cup competition is promising to offer a very close and competitive finish with just three rounds to play.

I am writing these few lines following today's Seniors Team Open event. The day was a great success with 12 guest teams lining up to take on our challenging course. The winning team of three was Donnington Grove with Winter Hill in second place with the Chiltern " Bandits" filling third place. Chris Chilver was the top Bishopswood Golfer scoring a high value total of 38 points playing off a handicap of 11. Very well played. Everyone involved thoroughly enjoyed the day and our guests left with a very favourable impression of the course, amenities, catering but above all Bishopswood's renowned hospitality. Huge credit goes to all the Bishopswood Golfers who acted as hosts and guides and to all the Bar and Catering Staff for maintaining such high standards. The many photos taken today will be added to the gallery section in due course.

That's about it all for now. Keep swinging and keep smiling

Best wishes to you all,


Playing with the Seniors
