Seniors Section Update from Chairman

Seniors Section Update December 2020

This is an update at this stage.

Despite COVID-19 and its lockdowns, we were able to organise and play 3 out of 4 of our Senior Competitions, plus an Away Day at Longhirst.

The casualty was the Xmas Trophy Competition due to very wet weather conditions at the last minute!! This has been rescheduled for TUESDAY 26th JANUARY, with a deadline for confirming entry a week before. The draw we made already can be forwarded plus four extra members who wish to enter. Details of the draw and deadline to follow.

Any savings financially due to COVID-19. E.g. lite bites, etc., have been pooled into more prize monies.

The four regular events have been placed in the Club Diary – all Tuesdays.

                MAY 18th              JOE FARLEY CLASSIC

                JUNE 1st                SENIOR OPEN (cancelled in 2020)

                JUNE 22nd            BILL ELDER

                SEPT 14th              SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP

                DEC 7th                 XMAS BASH

Plus an AWAY DAY and a FUNDRAISING EVENING with entertainment to be arranged!

At this stage, I would like to thank the other three members of your Committee for their ideas, advice, and energies for what has been a very difficult year all round. I wish you all a Happy and Healthy safe New Year for 2021, and hope to get back to some normality with golf and life soon.

Regards, Tony Dancer

Seniors Away Day Results

Senior Section Away Day – Tuesday 6th October

…. held at Longhirst Dawson Course.

Alan Johnson had organised the event. We had 4 teams of 4 for a Texas Scramble. A bacon sandwich and tea or coffee to start.

1st tee off time 10:30 on another beautiful blue sky and sunny day with a medium breeze!

The course was in very good order with challenging undulating greens. The winning team was P Smith, J Mackie, A Johnson, J Jones with a good net score.

Nearest the pin on the three par 3’s was G Reid, P Langton and D Fletcher.

Big thanks to Alan for his time on the day.

HOWEVER, only 15 out of 16 from a membership of 86 were involved! (Later apologies from the missing person).Gentlemen, you missed a great day and friendship. Next time?

Next event – Xmas trophy, 8th December. Let’s make it a great turnout after a difficult year!
