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.

December update
Guys – I know I said I wouldn’t write any more newsletters this year, but I think this is a suitable time for a brief winter update.
Firstly, a massive thanks to everyone who voted for me at the AGM: I have another year as a committee member, predominantly representing the seniors. For information, this year’s committee consists of the four officers of the club: Colin Woodward, President and Committee chairman; Malcolm Boreham, Club Captain, Roy Ward, Club Vice-captain; and Nick Leonard, Club Treasurer and four committee members, Jenny Lycett, Scott Monger, Gary Clinch, and yours truly. Martin Leyshon, the Club Secretary also attends committee meetings. If you have any queries about club issues please ask me in the first instance, although you can contact any member of the committee: we’ve often to be seen either on the course, or, more likely at this time of year, in the club bar. I’m looking forward to representing the Seniors again for the coming year as I enjoyed myself so much last year.
The inter-club fixtures are pretty much finalised for 2018. As previously, we open the season with a match at Dummer on Tuesday 6th March, and this is followed by our pre-season stableford on Wednesday 15th March. Later in the season, we have our Seniors’ Invitation day on Wednesday 11th July: if anyone has anything suitable for the raffle please let me know: all donations are greatly welcomed and will help to keep our costs down.
I visited Basingstoke Golf Club early in December to present their Veterans Captain with the Mick Peace trophy which we inaugurated this year: you may recall we shared the trophy this year – a rather fitting outcome I think.
Although we’re approaching the shortest day there is still plenty of golf to be played. Don’t forget Jim’s roll-ups will be continuing throughout the year. There’s the Captain’s Drive-In on Saturday 23rd December followed by the Christmas draw in the evening: your support for the draw is greatly appreciated and the prizes are well worth winning with the top prize a £1000 voucher for Festival Place. You can often see people selling squares for the draw in the bar: or just ask one of the bar staff for the latest sheet.
Finally, do have a brilliant Christmas and New Year and I hope to see you all on the golf course soon.
