Captain’s Message – 13th February 2020

Just a quick mail to let you know that we now have 59 Castaway members with 32 signed up to play at West Berks on the 5th March – let’s hope the weather improves!!

For those of you still deciding whether to play or not, I would ask you to decide by 26th February as I need to give final numbers to the club. To remind you the cost for a round of golf, tea/coffee and bacon bap on arrival and sandwiches and chips after the game will be £20 (£8 for West Berks members) with 2 ways of paying:

  1. by cheque made out to ‘Carswell Seniors’ and sent to Brian Reid or,
  2. by bank transfer to: Richard Tucker

Please reply to this email address with your intention to play and the method of payment as per the above. It’ll be £2 on the day for ‘prizes’.

As a further reminder, our 1st ‘official’ Castaways day will be Thursday 23rd April at Brickhampton Golf Club ( – full details will follow, but please make a note in your diary.

In addition, although we haven’t got actual days/dates organised yet, we are working on the following week commencing dates of:

Week commencing 25th May (this will be combined with the AGM)

w/c 22nd June

w/c 27th July

w/c 24th August

Each of the ‘official’ days will be played for one of the ‘senior’ trophies (in addition to the cash prizes) and after the final away day the ‘Captain’s cup’ will be presented to the overall champion (determined by the highest aggregate stableford score from 3 of the 6 meetings).
