Seniors Match Update: June 2018
The Seniors held their first Away Day of the year at Bromsgrove Golf Centre. Fifteen travelled and found the course in very good condition on a fine summers day. The catering and welcome we received were also excellent, so much so that it was decided to make this an annual away day.
The winning team of three were David Mains, Steve Hallam and Martin Blackaller (all apparently wearing sombreros).
We have two Away Days in July being at Builth Wells on Thursday 5th and Bewdley Pines on 19th. Please put your name on the sheets on the Seniors notice board if you are aged 55 or over.
The Seniors section matches are progressing well with home wins, the latest two being 4.5 to 1.5 over Burghill and 4 to 2 over Bransford
Finally the Seniors competition on Monday 9th July is a special member/guests or member-only team of three,two scores to count. There will be nearest the pin and two's prizes in addition to team prizes, so please enter a team by signing up on the start sheet on the seniors notice board.
