Seniors Championship Tuesday 29th September 2020
A message from Captain Ken,
I would like to thank all the seniors who turned out and played today, an exceptional turnout and thanks for the contributions at the half- way house.
There are so many people who contributed to making a wet day very enjoyable, I'll start by thanking Marc and Mike in the pro shop, Matt and his superb set of green staff, course was in great condition even after the recent weather. A big thanks to Lyn and Heather for running a superb half way house, I really appreciate the contributions made by Brian Eastment, Howard Peterson, Peter Williams and our vice captain John Hinchcliffe, and last but not least Rosemary Hay for withstanding the atrocious weather to take pictures of everyone starting at the 1st tee. On a finishing note thanks to Alan Mitchelson and the rest of the committee who take the time and effort to run and organise the seasons events for us.
Congratulations to all winners, Dave Reid with the best gross score of 81, David Bryant with the best nett score of 66 and Graham Thompson with the best nett score of 73 ( ocb) in the over 70s category.
The winners today were as follows:
Best Gross Score: Dave Reid with a score of 81 he wins £40
Best Nett Score: David Bryant with a nett score of 66 he wins £25
Best "Over 70’s" Nett score Graham Thompson with 73 points (ocb) he wins £25
As we were unable to have a presentation on the day we will arrange a time for presentation of trophies when the hotel is open.
Graham and David will have their prize money added to their accounts and Dave Reid will get a cash prize next time I see him.
There was a great turnout today of 53 players, conditions were tough especially for the early starters, which was reflected in the scores.
Thanks for entering and hope to see you soon.
Competitions update from Captain Ken, August 2020
Good to see so many seniors taking the opp0rtunity to get back on the golf course.
Things are slowly progressing with the introduction of competitive swindles and stablefords from the start of August. The committee will assess this on a regular basis with the hope of progressing further as the summer season ends and winter one begins.
There will be no club matches or competitions for the present time, but hopefully as things progress and the hotel becomes operational again, we can look at changing this.
The weather has been brilliant recently and the course is looking fantastic considering the time lost. A big thank you to Matt and his team once again. Thanks to Marc and Mike in the shop for providing the service at this time too.
On a closing note please feel free to ask myself or any committee member any questions regarding the way forward. If we don't have the answer I'm sure we will find someone who does.
Keep enjoying the golf chaps.
