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.

Well, summer is officially over and it’s the start of autumn but never fear, there’s still plenty of golf left this season.
In August we had more fantastic weather which contributed greatly to a brilliant Captain’s Day and how wonderful it was that Malcolm won his own competition. I believe that’s the first time it’s ever happened at the club. Irrespective of the golf I think everyone had a superb time.
Huge congratulations must go to Sheila Crawford who won the Veterans’ Trophy with a magnificent performance. On the inter-club match front, we had only two matches in August, at home against Sandford Springs and away to Goring and Streatley: sadly both ended in defeat, although we did retain the BAGS trophy in the latter match.
This month we have a flurry of matches at home to Dummer, Hartley Wintney, and Oak Park, and away to Sandford Springs and Sherfield Oaks in what is our traditional end-of-season match. However that’s not the end of Seniors competitive fixtures for the month as we also have our Seniors versus Supervets competition on the 26th.
Our run in the Seniors National Classic competition has come to an end. After a thrilling match away to Foxhills which we won via a play-off we suffered a narrow 2½:1½ defeat away to Ashford golf club in Kent. This was a brilliant fixture with every match going to the final putt on the final hole but we were unable to get the vital breakthrough. The team of Graham Pickup, Chris Chilver, Richard West, and Captain Malcolm Boreham have played some magnificent golf this year and we’ve been somewhat unlucky in that all but one of our matches have been away from home. Never mind, there’s always next season.
On the wider club front, we have the Ryder Cup competition on the 30th and, as a sure sign that the season is winding to close, entries for the winter competitions are already open and close at the end of the month. Socially, Malcolm has his “School Dinners” night on the 22nd so dig out your school uniforms and old school ties and come along.
Right, that all for this month. Have a great golfing month and enjoy what promises to be continuing good weather.
