Seniors Matches and Trophy Competitions

Geoff Dunkley with a report on successes through the year.

Our last Seniors Match against other clubs finished on Monday 24th September with an Away Win against Sundridge Park. Well done to all who played.
Over the past year our teams should have played 20 (10 Home and 10 Away) Matches against Local Clubs. Unfortunately 3 were cancelled due to one team or the other being unable to provide enough players, 1 Match against Addington Palace away was abandoned halfway due to adverse weather conditions. The other Sixteen resulted in Shirley Park winning 6, Loosing 9 with 1 Drawn.

Our thanks go to Match Secretary Brendan Foley for all his skills of gentle persuasion to enable us to provide full teams for each Match. We are not the only club who has trouble raising teams of 16 and it may be necessary to review that number for 2019.
The 2019 Matches start again in March next year and all Seniors are welcome to put their name forward for both Home and Away Matches. Sign up sheets will be posted on the Seniors Notice Board adjacent to the Locker Room Door.
My thanks to all who played and those who volunteered to be Captain for the Day.

Monday 8th October saw the last Seniors Trophy Competition ( Vin Howard ) played which was won by Neville D’Aranjo with a score of 37 Points. Well done Neville. These Competitions along with the Seniors Stablefords are organised by Ted Smith and our thanks go to him for all his time and effort in making each one a success.
The next Seniors Stableford is Monday 5th November followed by the Seniors AGM in the Dining Room and on Monday 10th December there will be the Seniors Christmas Texas Scramble so look out for both sign up sheets.

Look forward to seeing you all on 5th November.

Seniors Section

The Club has a very active Senior Section for golfers of 55 and over. A regular fixture list of matches against local Golf Clubs means that Members get to play many different courses, and forge great friendships with like minded golfers.

Regular "roll-ups" of Seniors are a welcome feature, predominantly on Monday mornings, but including other days of the week.

Everyone is welcome to come along or put their name down for any of the fixtures or competitions on the Seniors Notice Board in the hall way

Seniors Stableford

On a grey dismal Monday morning 21 Seniors golfers gathered at the club having made the bold decision to take to the course to play in the February Stableford competition. The conditions were far from pleasant as the rain continued all through the day, but Bill Rookes managed a very creditable 34 to take the first prize.
Many thanks to all those who made the effort to play despite the poor conditions. The next Seniors Competition will be the Chris Eldridge Trophy on Monday 19th March and the sign up sheet is posted on the Seniors Notice Board adjacent to the Locker room door.
Also for anyone interested in playing in the Seniors matches against other clubs there are sign up sheets for each match home and away also on the Seniors notice board.
Look forward to seeing you all on the 19th March.

Our second Seniors Match of the season was away at Cuddington on a beautiful Spring morning. 16 players under the Captaincy of Andrew Baird took to the fairways and although we all tried our best Cuddington won by 4&1/2 to 3&1/2.
Golf was followed by a good 2 course lunch with coffee and a slice of chocolate Brownie for a cost of £15.
The next match is at home against Banstead on Monday 23rd April and Brendan our Match Secretary still requires a few more players please so anyone who would like to play in this match or any of the other matches please enter your names on the sign up sheets adjacent to the locker room door.
