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.

The good weather is here, people are wearing shorts, the course is in magnificent condition, and everyone seems to be enjoying their golf.
During May we enjoyed some magnificent home victories over Winter Hill, Goring and Streatley, and Badgemore Park, losing only two rubbers in the process. Our five-one victory over Goring and Streatley means we stand an excellent chance of retaining the BAGS trophy for another year. Many thanks go to Jeff Wayling who captained the team against Badgemore Park: he currently has a 100% record of victories! Sadly, our home form hasn’t been translated into away success. We lost heavily at Theale and narrowly at Andover. Despite this everyone enjoyed themselves.
Our club match fixtures continue in June with home matches against Theale on the 6th, when we’ll be looking for a measure of revenge; Andover on the 21st, when I’m sure we can overturn the three-two defeat we suffered in May. Finally, we entertain Basingstoke on the 29th when we’ll have our work cut out to win the Mick Peace trophy since we bring a six-two deficit into that fixture. Also, in June we visit Bradfield College on the 12th, Winter Hill on the 18th, and Dummer on the 26th in a match rearranged from the early spring bad weather. It’s another busy month and I’m sure I’ll be chasing people to play in some of the matches so please do put your names down for as many matches as possible.
Our Seniors Invitation event on 11th July is rapidly approaching and already a healthy number of teams have entered. I will soon be putting out a calling note for the home players to guide our visitors around the course. I shall repeat my request for support with the raffle prizes. If anyone has anything, especially alcohol and golf-related items, please let me know as this will help to keep our costs to a minimum and means we can raise money for the club. I will also be asking some people for help on the day. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for good weather on the 11th.
After our defeat in the National Seniors Classic we have been handed another tough draw in the Plate competition: at Home to Oak Park (A). This match has to be played by the end of June and I’ll put something up on the noticeboard when we have more details. Talking of knockout matches, please help Gary out by making sure you play your ties by the due dates. I know I’ve been lax on this, so I’ll be contacting people very shortly.
That’s all for this month. Hopefully I’ll see all of you in and around the clubhouse during June and also I’ll see more of you playing in the matches.
