Seniors Newsletter October 2016

Annual Meeting (sometimes called the AGM....)
Yes it is that time of year again when you get to vote on who will be on the next committee, for the next captain and discuss the future issues for the seniors. The meeting is a week on Monday at 1.30 pm on 7th November in the clubhouse. There is golf as usual, a bag day – special ball competition, followed by a free lunch (even if you didn’t play). They say there is no such thing as a free lunch and it is true – as you have to listen to the committee speeches but they will also listen to you! So come along – there is even time, if you are quick, to nominate yourself as captain!
Christmas Lunch
Keep an eye on the noticeboard as details about the Christmas Cracker will be up soon. It will be on Wednesday 14th December. There will be golf beforehand, a 3 course lunch and the annual prize giving. There may even be Joe’s famous putter competition!
Final details about cost are being worked out but it will be very similar to last year so make sure you book early!
Bradnor Bugle
Don’t forget to read the Bradnor Bugle each month as it not only has general news about the club but often information about what seniors are doing. Plus there is at least one joke per edition! (and no that is not about my golf!!)
Lightning Strikes twice
It isn’t supposed to happen but it has. Not long after he shot a gross round less than his age, Colin Mansell has done it again! The handicap committee have recognised this and Colin is now rightfully a single figure handicapper. Not bad at an age when most of us are happy to shoot under 100. An inspiration for everyone – keep it going Colin!

Seniors Newsletter September 2016

Dear All,


Late Summer Away Day - Thursday 6th October 2016

The final away day of the year is going to be at a superb course with good greens, not too long but tricky to play in the wind. We have secured an amazing deal. Only £12.50 for a bacon bap & coffee on arrival, 18 holes of golf, sandwiches & chips plus ‘open standard’ prizes. There will be a nearest the pin competition on every par 3 & 18th + vouchers for team winners all totalling about £100 (assuming a reasonable turnout!). The venue is of course at Kington, with the draws for partners/teams at 9.15 and 1st tee at 10.00 am. The sheet is up on the noticeboard.



The AGM is scheduled for November 7th. The paperwork is on the noticeboard with sheets for nominations to committee and captain + minutes from last year. We know there will be at least 3 vacancies as neither Andy Edey, Paul Finch nor Sam Hinton are standing again. Apart from the glow of virtue from giving something back to seniors golf, it is also potentially great fun. You can be involved in the decisions about what competitions will be played and when; putting right all those frustrating problems rather than simply moaning in the bar; standing up and announcing that the bandit you played with has finally been cut after he scored 43 points; even helping to choose the Christmas cracker menu! Alright I may have cherry-picked my personal favourites and there are other more serious matters involved but you will get a great deal from it. So get your name down – Kington Seniors Golf needs you!


Seniors Open

This year’s open was a resounding success. The course was perfect for the large number of visitors with hardly a puff of wind and relatively slow greens due to heavy rain beforehand. Scoring was very good with the following gross score results:

1st (69) Richard Elmes & Ted Davies (Kington)

2nd (70) Colin Mansell & Steve Tanner (Kington)

3rd (71) Gordon Glover & Nigel Venables (Kington)

In the stableford, Joe James & Dick Lee (Kington) were 3rd with 47 pts, (24 & 23)

The success of the open was not solely due to the weather. Our thanks to Chris Scott for organising all the entries, to Paul Finch for leading on the organisation of the day, and to Gill & Glyn Wictombe, John Lockwood & Ivor Morgan for their sterling work on the day. If I have missed anyone out please let me know as it is not deliberate!

Seniors Newsletter August 2016

Upcoming Events
Ancients Cup – This is a club competition for which you need to be 55+ so all seniors qualify even if you look younger or don’t want to acknowledge your age! It will be held on Wednesday 17th August and there is an entry sheet on the club noticeboard. It is an ‘Honours Board’ competition so a prestigious one to win!
Seniors Open – Our own premiere event is on Wednesday 24th August and there are some prime slots still available for the morning so contact Chris Scott (01544 340069 or Don’t forget that it is two competitions in one. There is a standard better-ball stableford competition but also, uniquely, a better-ball gross competition. Plus nearest the pins on 3 holes and the usual ‘2’s and the chance to win a sleeve of Premium Golf Balls.
Matches – Away at Cradoc – 18th August, Home to Burghill – 1st September, Home to Brecon 8th September. See Seniors Board for details.
Seniors AGM – Yes it is early to be mentioning it but you need to make a note in your calendar as tickets are going fast (only joking....). The date is 7th November and we will be looking to appoint to a number of vacant committee posts plus your chance to raise and discuss any key issues. So don’t just moan about what the committee gets wrong, take part and put it right! Watch out for more details on the Seniors Board.
Stop Press
At an age when most of us are resigned to the fact that the only thing increasing in our golf is our handicap, it is remarkable to witness the exploits of Colin Mansell. In the summer League on 1st August he shot a gross 76 – below his age! His handicap has been coming down as well (quite right too according to some in the bar where I see a sombrero has been looking for an owner!). Well done Colin!
