Seniors Roll up Tuesday 7th May 2019

45 members turned up this week playing “Yellow Ball Killer” from the comments made following the game it appeared to be well received, although the curse of the Seniors struck again when a certain player picked their ball up with a shot left and was also the yellow ball player!

A signup sheet for the Captains cup is also on the notice board, monies will be collected from next Tuesday.

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 23rd April 2019

46 members turned up this week playing in the first of 2019s  Division 1 & Casual cups.

System input

Unfortunately one member refused to enter his results into the system following the game this week, this is a requirement going forward and refusal by any individual may result in a ban on taking part in future competitions when system entry is required.

Away Day

Thanks go to Bob Howard for organising what was an enjoyable day, we almost managed to avoid the rain although some avoided it more than others, the greens were in excellent condition and proved to what can only be described as challenging, the results were

First                              Peter Ellen

Second                        Roger Bates

Third                            Glyn Williams

Nearest the pin        Richard Tucker

Longest Drive            Brian Reid

BorB

Congratulations to Roger Bates on getting the BorB this week, I can confirm that it was an impressive bunker shot which rolled straight into the centre of the cup.

 Next week is hole # 17

Individual Stableford

Roll Up Report – 2nd April 2019

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 2nd April 2019

40 members turned up this week playing individual stableford, we were not quite sure how many finished  because although we had some cards marked N/R we were three short overall. Not handing in cards results in a delay in determining the winners, it is the responsibility of all players to ensure that cards are made readily available at the end of the game.

Away Day

Please ensure that all monies due are now paid by no later than Tuesday 9th of April

Eclectic

The necessary register is now in place in the Pro shop, should anyone who hasn’t registered to play and now wishes to take part in this competition must ensure that they inform Bill Baker beforehand so that the register can be updated.

Shrivenham Academy

There is a possibility of a home game against the Academy on Thursday April 25th this is additional to the published matches, should anyone wish to take part please inform Richard Tucker by no later than Friday April 12th.

BorB

With the number of N/R cards this week I thought it important to make it known that if in the future a round  is not completed then any claim for the BorB will not be valid.

The BorB still remains elusive although Keith Arlott did chip in for a birdie this week! we now move onto hole number eight.

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 19th March 2019

54 players turned up this week playing individual stableford.

New Member

We welcome Malcolm Higgins to the seniors this week, Malcolm has been a pay and play within Roger Bates Friday group and is now in a position to play on a regular basis.

Inter club matches

The first signup sheet is on the notice board for the game against Bicester on April 4th.

Seniors competitions.

The draw for the singles and pairs can now be found on the website, remember that the first round must be played by the end of April.

We start the Eclectic shortly, for those wishing to take part who have not yet registered must do so before playing.

BorB

Because Course maintenance started this week it was decided not to hold the BorB, the thinking behind this decision was that we couldn’t be sure that players would not be forced to play onto a temporary green while others played on the main green.

Individual Stableford

Roll Up Report – 5th March 2019

Seniors Roll up Tuesday 5th March 2019

Fifty five players took part in this week’s game of Individual Stableford.

Insurance

The chance to join the scheme has now passed, as a matter of checking please go to the insurance page of the website and ensure that you are listed as joining, should you believe that the list does not include your name and that it should, please contact Terry Clark ASAP.

Race Night

The night turned out to be a great success, we managed to raise the sum of £170:30p which will go to The British Heart Foundation.

It was disappointing that very few of the Seniors members attended which was surprising,

I would like to thank those that helped to make the night enjoyable, Jan Crawshaw & Brian Reid as tellers, Bill Baker Photographer and Tony Dyet who ran the “Crown & Anchor”

Team games

I have been aware for some time that whenever we have a team game there are occasions when we are left with one or two 2 balls who are disadvantaged even though we try to adjust scores accordingly.

I am looking at a solution to this problem and will be “trialling” it at the next opportunity.

BorB

Well, onwards we go, next week it’s hole #4, if it’s not won soon I’ll have to get a larger tin.

Roll Up Report – 26th February 2019

 Seniors Roll up Tuesday 26th February.

Fifty two players took part in this weeks game of 2’s and 3’s, the weather once again made the day enjoyable, however I’m not sure how long it’s going to last so I don’t think we should pack away the thermals yet.

Surprisingly the BorB remains intact after what must be the easiest hole on the course, apparently a number of players were within a hairs breath of celebrating but it was not meant to be, as for myself I was on the green with my drive unfortunately I was still on the green after my second, next week we move onto the 17th.

One in one out

We bid farewell to Doug Jackson this week as he moves up to Scotland and I’m sure we all wish him well on his new adventure.

 Ian McDougal returns this week following a substantial time away due to injury, obviously the recovery is going well considering Ian managed to be part of the team achieving 3rd place this week.

Results

1st     Richard Bramwell,   Tony Scrivens, Barrie Layfield          105pts

2nd    Peter Metcalfe,        Peter Fisher,    Tony Belcher             99 pts

3rd    Richard Dewar,        Ian McDougal, Rod Forder                 97pts c/b
