APRIL / MAY NEWSLETTER 2019

Dear Bishopwood Senior Golfers,

It's good to know that the new golfing season is now in full swing. Oh Boy !! Have we been lucky ( so far) with the weather.
It seems to me that it has poured with rain every day either side of the days of our early season events including the 2019 pre- season Stableford Competition on Wednesday 13th March.
And what a fantastic day we enjoyed on and off the course. The standard of play was exceptionally good with excellent scores returned considering the heavy underfoot conditions.
Massive congratulations go to the winner Gary Clinch by one point from runner up Roger Taylor. The winners of the three nearest the pin competitions were Graham Pickup, Peter Wythe and Gary Clinch who left the Club with his arms full of medals, cups and prizes. Very Well Done Indeed !!

The inter club matches commenced with our trip to Dummer on Tuesday 5th March with eight playing pairs. We enjoyed a super day in their company. Their hospitality, however, did not extend beyond the clubhouse as we suffered a 5 and a half to a 2 and a half defeat. Nevertheless the fun and laughter meter nearly went off the scale.
On Wednesday 27th March we welcomed Hartley Wintney to Bishopswood and again under clear skies manged a very convincing win by 5 and 1/2 to 1/2. It's true what they say that your beer tastes a lot sweeter following a victory. So, onto Badgemore on the Friday 5th April with what I considered to be a talented and effective squad.. As we know home advantage is vital in club matches and we were narrowly beaten 4 and 2. They won three matches, we won one match and the other two matches were halved. A close encounter indeed.

With regards to forthcoming inter club matches we will welcome SherfieldOaks to Bishopswood on Wednesday 17th April 2019 for a breakfast match. Our first seniors medal is scheduled for Wednesday 24th April 2019. I encourage all of you to challenge yourself and to compete in this event. It provides you with the opportunity of winning a prestigious prize and, whatever the outcome, will ensure your present handicap is commensurate with your current form and playing ability. On the Friday 29th April 2019 we will be hosted by Basingstoke Golf Club. A team of eight pairs will be selected for this ever popular fixture. I wish to confirm that my policy is to ensure there are equal opportunities for all those wishing to play in friendly inter club matches which above will be played for fun and enjoyment, if a match is won then it is considered the cherry on the cake

Finally, thanks to all 22 of you who entered the recent first round of the Seniors Stableford Cup. Congratulations to Martin Smith who won on count back from George Quinton, both amassing 35 points. In fact, there were only 7 points separating first position to 15th so there will be many chances to close on the leaders in the six remaining rounds between now and October. Make a note in your diaries to compete in round two scheduled for Wednesday 1st May 2019.

That's all the news for now. If there is any " hot" news I will send you a short email.

Best wishes to you all,

Jeff
