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.

October Seniors Newsletter
Autumn is now well and truly upon us although the weather continues to be very kind to golfers: very little rain and plenty of sunshine to enjoy. But there are clear signs that the golfing year is drawing to a close. After a flourish in September our inter-club matches have been completed. We drew at home with Dummer and won 4:2 against Hartley Wintney but we suffered losses against Sandford Springs, Oak Park and Sherfield Oaks. Overall this season out of twenty-eight matches we won nine, lost fourteen and halved three. However, the figures we distorted by a poor run-in when we lost seven of the last nine fixtures. A total of forty-four people represented the club this year and many, many thanks to everyone. There is a lot of pressure to fill the team positions for so many matches and you all responded magnificently.
In September we had the hugely enjoyable Seniors versus SuperVeterans match which this year saw the “youngsters” avenge last year’s defeat. We also held two successful Opens for the gents and mixed teams and the seniors were much in evidence in these: well done to everyone who took part.
Although the season is drawing to a close we still have a number of events in October. There’s the match against the ladies on the eleventh and our season closing stableford competition on the seventeenth. For everyone who’s represented the club in matches this year we also have the Club Player of the Year on the twenty-sixth and twenty-seventh: wouldn’t it be brilliant if a senior won this competition.
There are also some excellent social events coming up: Captain Malcolm has another very popular music quiz on October nineteenth and there’s the Captain’s dinner dance on November seventeenth. Oh, and don’t forget Jim’s roll-ups are continuing and the Texas scramble this year is on December the seventh.
This is my final update as seniors’ representative. After two and a half years at the helm I’m handing the reins over to Jeff Wayling. I know you’ll all support Jeff as much as you’ve done for me and I also know Jeff will do a brilliant job. It’s been a privilege to organise the seniors and you’ve all rallied round when things have gone awry as they do on occasions. Thanks very much everyone.
