Roll Up Roundup – 27th March 2018

It was good to be out playing golf again on a Tuesday, albeit Monday’s weather would have been preferable!   But despite the mizzle, and 9-temporaries, 39-players made the most of the course being open.

As we head into April and the start of the competition season, a few announcements for you.

  1. The draw was made for the preliminary round of the Geko [pairs] yesterday with Natali providing the glamour, and Bill doing the technical stuff.              Bill will now post the draw on the notice board, and Terry the website, with all matches to be played on/before the 30th The website?   As you should all know by now, that’s
  2. As mentioned in this month’s newsletter, we are taking orders for T-shirts & jumpers branded with the seniors logo.   The preferred colour for the jumper is navy blue [see below] and if you ask Natali nicely she can show you the real thing, but the T-shirt colour has yet to be decided – puce perhaps?   OK, maybe not!   If you wish to order would you please get back to me with your size& quantity required, and remember, as we are still waiting on the costings you are not committed until the prices are announced and you have confirmed that you still wish to proceed.
  3. And one last one – news of an extra competition to run for each roll-up during April.   Venessa is raising sponsorship for the Helen Douglas House Hospice, and is offering a bottle of wine for a nearest-the-pin competition – hole to be advised on the day.   You have to be ‘in it to win it’ and while there is no entry fee, if you donate less than £1  . . . . . . . !!!!

And so to the moment you have all been waiting for, the results:   We had a winner of the BoB competition this week, Steve Maier, but because Steve is so shy & retiring he didn’t tell anyone before he left the course, so something for next week.   Turning then to the main competition, the results were:

Texas Scramble
Position Name Net score
1st Alan Kirkpatrick 60.2
John Drage 60.2
Ray Duckett 60.2
2nd Brian Reid 60.4
Rod Maloney 60.4
Cliff Davies 60.4
3rd Jerry Senior 61.7
John Stiles 61,7
Bill Baker 61.7


Next week we kick-off the ‘summer season’ [allegedly] with the first round of the Eclectic, and the forecast is for light winds & temperatures bordering on double figures – I refuse to be drawn on precipitation levels!!!!
