On Friday 1st November around 20 ex Carswell Seniors met for a roll up at Hinksey Heights arranged by Roger Fletcher who is a member there. It was a grey and miserable day (both weather and golfing wise). The course including the greens were quite sodden. Nevertheless a good time was had by all. Brian Reid romped home as the winner. Old friendships were renewed. After the golf Captain Richard Tucker took the opportunity to present the Old Oaks Trophy to Ricky Braybrooke who is shortly off to Australia for his customary taste of sunshine whilst the rest of us freeze. Ricky looked appropriately surprised and pleased – in equal measure!

They told me, Carswell Golf Club, they told me you’d gone
My twenty five years membership’s been blown away like dust.
I grieve as I remember how twice a week or more
I played with high ambition – but an even higher score.
I’m having nightmares nightly about rewilding the course
I see badgers chipping hedgehogs to greens submerged in
But long may Carswell Seniors, the Castaways, convene
For golf, and at the nineteenth hole, for toasts to what has been.
